Dying to fall for a high-concept, unputdownable contemporary. Give me super strong voice. Some kind of mystery to be solved. Dynamic character relationships. #mswl

Agents! I am both in a buying mood AND doing a better job in 2020 about responding to submissions quickly. Send me your YA - esp. stuff featuring characters from marginalized backgrounds, interesting formats, high-concept contemporary. #MSWL

📚Updated #mswl for 2020 📚
2019 brought a lot of great YA to my inbox, and oh how I love it, but really looking for a lot more adult fiction in 2020.
Particularly hungry for suspense and women's fiction with a high concept hook

Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
😉
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.

I'm also dying for more fun & high concept middle grade series, like THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL, NEVERMOOR, ESCAPE FROM MR. LEMONCELLO'S LIBRARY, MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY, etc. And as in YA, in MG: monsters. #mswl

In General Fiction, I'm super picky, but would like:
- Literary Fiction by diverse authors.
- High concept Romance like RW&RB.
- Books that would fall in the NA category if it existed.

Is it possible for a #mg novel to be both high concept AND literary? If so, I want THAT. Something with a BIG hook but also beautifully written, complex characters, a story that will make me both LOL & weep. #MSWL

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

And just as a warning, y'all....it's long.

I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...

I LOVE THESE BOOKS. High concept, character-driven, bold, brilliant writing that explores Big Themes. Sentences you want to read aloud to the person sitting next to you. Also, 🖤 the novella length! Send me your tight speculative fiction. #MSWL

My #MSWL: love stories - high-concept love stories (maybe with a speculative twist?), fresh takes on millennial dating, big historical epic romances, romances in beautiful dream destinations...
