Abby Saul @BookySaulIt'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!
Something I VERY much want more of: submissions by Jewish people who aren't Ashkenazi! I want to see more stories by/about Jewish #POC, Sephardic, Mizrahi, & Ethiopian Jews. Love stories. Fantasy. SciFi. Humor. Historical. Non-scary mysteries. Literary. Bring 'em all! #MSWL
Kortney Price @kortney_priceI'm going to have to force myself to focus now, so I'm jumping off of #pitdark but I know there are amazing pitches I missed so please feel free to query me if you think we might be a good fit! Here's a rundown of the very #pitdark-y things I'm looking for #mswl
If I missed your #PitDark pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: horror, thriller, SFF, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & cont. MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
jourdain searles @jourdayenkinda weird that scooby doo didn’t get the riverdale treatment before riverdale. every plot on that show would make more sense for a live action scooby doo teen drama.
if you gave me a Dark and Edgy YA contemporary about a group of friends solving mysteries with their dog and their van i’m not not going to enjoy it #mswl
Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.
#A6 I’d love to find an exciting MG mystery/detective story, especially if it’s funny too! I’m also always on the lookout for great YA with an unreliable narrator or an intense and overwhelming love story. #SCBWIchat #mswl
I can't wait to meet the talented Southern writers at #MoonlightandMagnolias #MMConference19 this weekend in ATL, my old stomping grounds. I'll be looking for mystery, historical, women's fic, and of course a lil romance! I love a determined character full of grit & grace #MSWL
