For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.

I'll send out some more in-depth #mswl tweets next week, but in the meantime, two things I'd really love to see more of in my inbox are dual timeline narratives and crime / mystery novels, historical or contemporary. Send 'em!

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

And I always have room for more brilliantly crafted middle grade. My big loves are contemporary, historical fiction and magical realism. #mswl

I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019

In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy

I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL

The first few eps of #marvelousmrsmaisel have put me in the mood for a historical novel set in Paris... BUT I want it to have suspense/mystery elements, and lean literary in style. Universe, halp?! #MSWL

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

"Historical novels where plot & setting work together i.e. NIGHTINGALE, ARCADIA, GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND. I’m not interested in writers using historical novels to tell me how much research they’ve done. I want a very plotty historical. Beatriz Xilliams-Esque." @carlywatters #MSWL
