I’d love to work on a quirky heist book for the adult market, like DIAL A FOR AUNTIES meets Oceans 11. #MSWL

(3/7) A spy or heist romance. Think Ally Carter meets Mr and Mrs Smith. High stakes, high intrigue, high glamour and a kick-ass/takes no sh*t protagonist! Morally grey "villains" and "heroes" actively encouraged!

Young Adult: I'm actively looking for YA novels, especially contemporary, romance, and mystery/heist. If you have anything contemporary including sports (except for hockey) or food in some way, I'd love to read!

And, my usual disclaimer, if your work contains any of the following: scammers, heists, something 'Highsmithian,' fish out of water, rich people behaving badly, or a Carson McCullers comp... PLEASE DO APPLY!

In YA I want rich world building with strong and clear magic system and am open to romance as central part of the plot. I love retellings of classic stories, realistic fiction with mystery, thriller, heist/spies and untrustworthy characters

Fantasy is my first love, but I'd really like to see more diverse fantasy drawing from underrepresented voices/myths/folklore/worlds, etc. I'd love to see some historical fiction/fantasy/alternate history! Gothic/Horror! Spies! Heists!

I am a HUGE sucker for books that cross genres or that pull in familiar tropes from other genres. Want to put a heist inside a romance? Here for it. #MSWL

Character-focused SF - I want your heists, your found families, your explorers, your settlers. I'm not a good fit for either hard SF or pure military SF

Heists, heists, and more heists. The bigger the shenanigans, the better. I love to especially see character relationships and arcs being tested/explored as the mission goes on. Think Portrait of Thief, Six of Crows, Bullet Train, etc.

Other random things I’m drawn to: academia (dark or light); sentient spaceships; a spiky heroine giving all the snark; stories within stories; enemies to lovers; magical libraries; heists; good old-fashioned yearning; multiverses; ethereal forests; dragons… #MSWL

I have just learned about the existence of Kaleidoscope on Netflix and I don’t even need to watch it to say it is going on my #mswl. A heist that plays w structure? Yes yes yes.

I'm also manifesting something heist-y! Whether that's contemporary and hilarious like COUNTERFEIT or a historical masterpiece like THE HOUSEKEEPERS (coming this summer), I'm open to anything in this space.

I’ve been especially loving books with a genre twist lately -- PORTRAIT OF A THIEF comes to mind as a great example of what I’m looking for, as does COUNTERFEIT or LUCKY. I’m a sucker for a charming con artist, or an intricately plotted heist. Bonus if it makes me laugh!
