I'm actively looking for new authors (just recently offered a contract to one) in the following inspirational genres:
Amish (both suspense and contemp)
Other things that make my agent heart sing: high concepts, voicey narration, fantasy (especially with a unique twist), lush historical settings, fresh paranormal, boarding schools, sister stories, falling in & out of friendship, dark & atmospheric, setting as character. #MSWL
I’m especially on the lookout for YA rom coms (TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE; RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE), MG contemporary (A SONG FOR A WHALE; EVENTOWN), MG historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE; PRARIE LOTUS), and graphic novels (NEW KID, LAURA DEAN) #MSWL
Louise Buckley @LouiseMBuckleyI have opened for submissions! Crime/thrillers, literary and book club fiction, women's fiction, historical fiction. I'm still after a time-travel story and love anything with a hint of magic that isn't epic or urban fantasy. zenoagency.com/submission-gui…
In case you haven't seen my #mswl, I am on the hunt for brilliant storytelling in the following areas...
Rachel Diebel 🌻 @diebelraI ‘ M S O R R Y I just learned that Amelia Earhart and Eleanore Roosevelt were probably gay for each other and idk how someone can shoehorn this into a commercial YA novel but #MSWL please someone try

Tiffany Shelton @TiffanyDiahannGIVE ME HISTORICAL FICTION THAT DOES NOT ERASE BLACK PEOPLE OR ANY POC.
I will continue to say that Belle is one of my favorite movies (and yes I did read the nonfic book), and I want fiction like it.
Tweeting this again because this is the thing I really want right now. #MSWL
#MSWL historical YA about the orphan trains of the late 1800s/early 1900s that moved 200,000 children from over-populated orphanages mostly into the midwest to be "adopted" by farmers who put them to work on farms as free labor.
Priyanka Krishnan @mspriyankaI tried to do a #MSWL thread the other day and twitter thwarted me. But I refuse to stay thwarted because have room on my list for new voices--and stories are one of the few things keeping me sane right now...
I'm craving THE CITY OF BRASS-style rich and intricate #fantasy, with complicated family dynamics, stark political tension, sweeping romance, and hard loss; stories that (respectfully) wed historical inspiration and folklore with unexpected magic and major stakes #MSWL 1/
Let's try that again! Writers! During this quagmire of a time, maybe you want to check out my #MSWL ? I'd love a story to sweep me off my feet, away from (gestures) all of this manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/magg…
Adult historical fantasy (show me a location or pivotal moment in history I've never seen in SFF)
Contemporary YA (show me how powerful& combustible teenage relationships are)
Middle grade sci fi, contemporary, or fantasy (I'm pretty wide open; nothing is off the table!) #mswl

I’m actively acquiring historical romance set in the Regency and Victorian eras. Highlanders and Vikings are also welcome! Digital and print ops available, depending on platform. Query w/ proposal or full here: entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/ #historical #romance #amwriting #MSWL
would also LOVE dark GN with creatures from lesser known legends/cultures
on that note, give me historical GN! Give me time periods in new places with new people and their part in that event. I'd love POC and how they affected certain wars/spy networks/etc. #amagenting #querytip
