I'm not the right agent for fantasy and sci-fi, but I am not opposed to novels with a slight speculative twist. I'm interested in high concept love stories with a magical or techy element.

As any good fantasy nerd, I love fantasy. In MG and YA, but I am picky nowadays. So it has to feel different. But give me high concept stories. Give me beautiful writing. Give me morally complex characters. #MSWL

#amquerying writers: I'm really in the mood for high concept (i.e. emphasis on plot) romances/women's fic with HEA, especially stories where the romantic interest is perceived to be the obstacle to the protagonist's goals and we get all that delicious tension 😍 #mswl

Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.

Oh and always on my #MSWL:
FRESH. HIGH-CONCEPT. HOOKS.

Give me an element we've not really seen before: men who have a secret romance book club, pride & prejudice in a modern NYC burlesque club. Think new and surprising.

#MSWL - Anything that feels high concept and cinematic in YA, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary with a speculative twist. Stories with big “what if” premises.
