I’d really love to see more #horror and #thrillers in my QM inbox, #amquerying writers! Bonus point for stories told by historically marginalized creators! #MSWL #amwriting #YA

I have space for YA on my list this year, so I am opening to YA queries from Palestinian/Arab/Muslim/Indigenous voices for a short time!

I love grounded SFF/all types of horror/commercial romcoms/and issues-driven stories.

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."

Hi Agents: Updating my #MSWL to let you know that I'm no longer able to acquire books that are strictly romance focused, though romantic sub-plots are fine. Still looking forward to seeing your thrillers, mild horror and stories with fantastical elements.

All of this is in addition to seeing anything that’s fantasy romance and fantasy horror, of course, but I wanted to dedicate a special thread to the above topics since I’m not seeing as much love in my subs list for them right now.

For sci-fi horror, I love it all. Creepy sentient alien spaceships, Event Horizon vibes, The Luminous Dead, The Last Astronaut,The Thing, The Descent, Underwater - give it to me…

I love seeing djinn on the page, Muslim characters as heroes. I love settings that feel like feudal Japan, or that have that Blue Eyed Samurai vibe. And anything that feels like epic fantasy x horror. And DRAGONS, always dragons.

I'm in my dark fiction era! #MSWL

Give me all the horror (!!), mysteries, & thrillers, especially highlighting marginalized POVs (BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQIA+, & all the intersections). I've been so fortunate to read some for fun & for work, but I'm still feeling insatiable!

Adult: SFF & horror! I especially love dark SFF, whether that be epic fantasy or space opera, & I'm interested in horror that intersects with other genres. I'd love to find a horror romance, or a sci-fi horror. Would love a sapphic romantasy & any creepy, queer genre works.

But I will reopen to select YA genres as well. So it will be Adult SFF, Horror, and Mystery (not true crime). YA horror, thriller, and romance. No YA fantasy or science fiction or contemporary.

Happy to take questions for a little bit about my #MSWL . #askagent

I haven't seen the sun in a month and it's affecting my #MSWL . Please send me more domestic thrillers, YA thrillers, stories about cults, and non-supernatural horror where the monsters are regular people.

📚 YA: I'm focusing more on genre fiction — namely fantasy and horror with an emphasis on works by authors from marginalized communities. I still have a soft spot for reimaginings (like...Count of Monte Cristo. Or if someone were to update Christopher Pike's The Midnight Club...)

📚 MG: Three things I'll probably always be looking for:
1. Adventure novel with a humorous voice
2. creepy and lyrical horror a la coraline.
3. queer first crush (if it makes you think of the short 'in a heartbeat' I want to see it.)
