"Psychological dramas are high on my wish-list, as are high-concept thrillers that keep me guessing. My favorite titles defy expectations and subvert stereotypes."

I love nonfiction but have very little of it on my list! Let's fix that, eh? I'm looking for high concept projects with a fun, commercial bent supported by your fantastic platform. Teach me something—hobbies, cooking, gardening. I want an adventure! #MSWL

As stated on my #MSWL on the official MSWL website and the Metamorphosis website, as far as fantasy I’m really only looking for magical realism and urban fantasy. I prefer low fantasy and if it’s very high concept it’s probably not for me.

Adult Romance: High concept stories that are just shy of bonkers are always my jam. If you have to caveat an idea with “wait, but hear me out” it’s likely that I will be interested in seeing more. #mswl

Another gap: I'm missing a thriller that is super high-concept - have you written the next WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME, END OF STORY, DO NO HARM? 🙋‍♀️I'm your girl.

⭐️High-concept fantasy & contemporary fantasy that uses the conventions of its genre to critique, subvert, or illuminate a truth about our world (PLEASE send me the next Raybearer, Graceling, Witch King)
⭐️Fantasy/contemporary fantasy set in non-European-inspired settings

⭐️Stories about (non-anthropomorphic) animals, human-animal bonds, nature & high-stakes survival. Think today's My Side of the Mountain. Spooky camp stories also scratch this itch!
⭐️Horror stories— genuinely scary or high-concept light humor (from Small Spaces to Ghost Squad)

So what do I want? My musts are:
⭐️big bets with high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting and pacing, & lead-title potential
⭐️upmarket and unforgettable writing/art
⭐️a strong sales hook that can be summed up in an intriguing line or two #MSWL

#MSWL: #ChildrensBooks send me yr #GraphicNovel projects, from high-concept to literary, or middle grade with visual elements. Something with heart & humor. See Remy Lai's Pie in the Sky as a good comp. Also enjoyed Witches of Brooklyn & Pilau of the Woods as GN comps.

I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.

In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.

Lastly, high concept love stories and original romcoms are always welcome. I’d love to find new and underrepresented voices in that area that are doing something different. #mswl

“Across the board I love stories that are told in unique formats, whether that be epistolary, e-epistolary, transcripts, a high concept POV, etc. If it’s slightly outside a traditional novel format or voice, send it my way!” @adriamgoetz #MSWL
