I'm currently being very selective in the #middlegrade category, but here I'd happily take a look at #horror, #mysteries, stories with quirky characters a la client @merrill_wyatt 's Sloane and Amelia in forthcoming TANGLED UP IN LUCK. Also, I love humor in middle grade -
For #YA, I'd love to see more psychological #thrillers, #mysteries, #light atmospheric horror. Give me a YA Girl, Interrupted, please. I'd also love to see more #BIPOC and #queer stories that lead with joy here - #romance, #romcoms.
I also LOVE horror in general! Horror with social commentary & twists on common tropes, like EAT YOUR HEART OUT & WHAT WE HARVEST. Atmospheric--all the dark, creepy vibes (strange small towns & dark forests never get old for me!). Beautiful literary writing is always a plus.
MG: I'm VERY open here, from contemporary to any genre you could think of, and the whole range from lower MG to upper! From light, funny, and whimsical, to darker and more serious. I'd also love an MG mystery or horror!
MG: This is the area I'd most like to expand!
YA: My first love! I'm always looking for YA that stands out.
Select adult SFF & horror.
Always open to author-illustrators & graphic novels. Plus @DanieleDHunter & I LOVE novels-in-verse! We tend toward lyrical writing generally.
Last night I procrastinated so much on Actual Things (cleaning? life? etc) that I made myself a website 👀 taragonzalez.com
Saint (S.T.) Gibson IS OPEN TO QUERIES @s_t_gibsonHorror romance is where it's AT babes
Got a story that straddles the line between the frightening and the erotic? I wanna see it. Query me with your horror romances! #mswl
The top three things I'd love to see more of in my query inbox, in no particular order 📚 #MSWL
1. Romance of any subgenre, especially if it's queer or polyamorous
2. Contemporary fantasy with unique magic systems and lore
3. Gothic horror, particularly from marginalized voices
Tiffany Shelton (she/her) 🧛🏾♀️ @TiffanyDiahannI feel like I'm just going to constantly retweet this until I find what I'm looking for in historical fiction. Even open to a gothic horror novel with BIPOC set in the 18th and 19th centuries. #MSWL twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I would also take a gothic horror like this #MSWL
Tiffany Shelton (she/her) 🧛🏾♀️ @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.

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKimInbox update: I'm caught up on queries sent before today and all requested materials sent before July.
#MSWL thread coming....
I'd like to see more upmarket horror in the vein of Mexican Gothic, The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires and The Return. #mswl
Delighted to announce that our colleague Meredith is now accepting submissions in the genres of young adult, sci-fi, fantasy, speculative and horror fiction. More details here: cwagency.co.uk/agent/meredith…
GN - all genres but especially horror, dark fantasy, or LGBTQ+
Novels - romance, contemporary, historical, and MAYBE fantasy. Super picky there. Really want horror like Babadook or Midnight Mass or Haunting of Hill House
again, I am dying for more LGBTQ+ and historical; would love contemporary, fantasy, and horror here, too
Think outside the box. For YA, it needs to be something that totally immerses me in the characters or the world or the emotions
(5/9) Horror: Haunted houses, curses, ghosts, murder mysteries, send them my way! I want to be scared. I want to be “I don’t want to turn the lights off” scared. I’m okay with some violence but I don’t enjoy gory stories. I’m more interested in suspense, tension, and dread.
