I'm ready to read! Where are my high concept, unputdownable, story driven manuscripts? Do you have a novel I can get lost in? Any genre of adult fiction that fits the bill (sorry no erotica). This #mswl is for the #WritingCommunity #amquerying authors. Send queries my way 📚✍️💛

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

2) Rom-coms with a high concept situation that can be summarized quickly and make people go "ooooh" (think You've Got Mail, The Rehearsals by @MsAnnetteMC , Dream On by Angie Hockman)

I updated my #MSWL page for the first time in... a decade? And I'm looking forward to reading some great submissions in 2024.

Agents, among other things, I'd love to find a feel-good underdog sports story to weep over and/or edit. Hit me up! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/katherine-harrison/

New year and a lightly updated #mswl . The gist is I’m always on the lookout for stories that feature joy, that have characters I fall hard for, and settings I can’t let go of.

For MG I'm interested in finding a high concept fantasy adventure, or a funny heart-warming narrative. I'm always on the look out for writing from underrepresented voices and so please do get in touch with your stories. 2/3

High-concept, female-led thrillers. We prefer our protagonists snarky and morally gray. Who doesn’t love a messed up antiheroine?

We’re also looking for writers in the crime & mystery space. Very commercial and propulsive. Could be dark or light and quirky, like KNIVES OUT. 3/4

"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."
