"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!"

Pondering my current #mswl. I’d still love to see some high-concept YA romance (if queer then all the better) that addresses the climate crisis… ecological, possibly international, could be a version of our world, could be fantasy?

I missed participating in the @bookendslit #MSWL Day round up due to meetings, but behold my #MSWL anyway... (1/5)

James is seeking upmarket/book club fiction, mystery, suspense and thrillers. Some things he is drawn to in a novel are commercial, high-concept plots, exciting settings, fast pacing, a fresh spin on a familiar trope, grounded speculative elements, rich prose (2/5) #MSWL

Several of my YA romance writers are pivoting to adult and I am having a great time with it, so I'm opening to adult rom-coms for the first time! Still not the best fit for genre romance, but send me your funny, layered, high-concept mainstream rom-coms.

I want to see fun and sweet contemporary romances with high concept hooks in the adult space as well. Think Lily Chu’s The Stand In or Emily Henry’s Book Lovers. I’m probably not the right agent for more serious romance stories. #MSWL

I am still closed to queries, but I can’t resist #MSWL day.

When I reopen, I’d love some high concept apocalyptic books. Think HELL FOLLOWED WITH US, or (of course) The Last of Us.

ROM COMS—I love rom coms, especially when there is a high concept commercial hook. My favorite tropes are grumpy/sunshine, enemies to lovers, fish out of water, forced proximity. Some of my all-time favorites are: BEACH READ (elite), THE UNHONEYMOONERS, and REAL MEN KNIT. #MSWL

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.
