Hi Twitterverse: thrilled to announce I'm scouting for Hill Nadell agency in LA. Here's my #mswl: Literary fiction (broad, I know); thrillers with great character development and female leads (think Tana French); memoirs with a focus on the natural world (think H Is for Hawk) 📚

Send all the books my way. My end of year agent #MSWL includes literary fiction that is compulsively readable, stories that make me shed both sad & happy tears, suspenseful smart plots set in unexpected places, and characters that come of age in the glitz and glam of NYC. ❤️

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

Catching up on subs and i notice i have excellent YA here, but not much MG! #mswl WHEN I REOPEN: I really want to work on more MG! Commercial or literary—give me your big series hooks, magic, light and fun contemporary, hopeful stories touching on tough topics, queer characters!!

It's the final countdown, #WritingCommunity! I'll be closed to queries starting next week, so get them in now! Otherwise I'll look forward to reading in 2020. twitter.com/BookySaul/stat…

#MSWL is always adult fiction (particularly women's, mysteries, thrillers, historical, and select literary) that is doing something new. Underexplored settings, unusual characters, turning tropes on their head - gimme!

It's #SPOOKYSZN so here is an #mswl! I would really love to see a literary paranormal YA novel. Right now the only specters waking me up at night in a cold sweat are the emails I forgot to answer the day prior.
