Catch-all #mswl: Adult mystery/thrillers, book club/upmarket, women's, historical, & contemporary fiction. Make me laugh and cry, transport me to someone else's life, surprise me. Some faves are here, come join them on my shelf: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/abby…
Queries reopen 12/1!
Chelsey Emmelhainz @LitAgentChelseyDear #amquerying, I'll be closing to queries on 12/1!
Please submit to me before that so I can dig into your work over the holidays.
FWIW, I'm still looking for fresh, diverse #horror and #mystery (dark or cozy) and narrative nonfic that sheds light on hidden histories
Surprise! I’m opening to queries November 1st-18th! While I love picture books, I have a lot of them on sub so I’m hoping to find:
-YA fantasy, paranormal, or horror (no gore!)
-Adult fantasy or thrillers
YA will be a hard sell for me. Although, I still love any game element or competition. Mystery in the vein of TRULY DEVIOUS and INHERITANCE GAMES is high on my list. Also, historical fantasy such as AND I DARKEN. #MSWL
things I’ve been dying to see in my inbox #MSWL
- unapologetic female protagonists
- revenge stories
- retellings with a twist
- mythology, meddling gods
- smart mystery thrillers
- spooky middle grade
Historical Fic #mswl: an unseen avenue into a popular historical moment (a job, a place, a person we haven't seen before giving new insight into a time we're maybe familiar with). Dual timeline, mystery/Gothic-leaning, female-driven all delicious bonuses
Queries reopen 12/1!
Agents! I am eager for new, exciting acquisitions and I updated my #mswl to prove it! Check out what I’m looking for here (spoiler alert: subversive horror, witty rom coms, & unique genre mash-ups): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/alis…
-BIPOC-led mysteries and thrillers, especially those with romantic and cozy *elements* even if you may not consider them fully cozy. e.g. there are dogs. there is a bakery. there is a fluffy tooth-rotting romance
-again, more BIPOC in the great outdoors
MG and YA:
-mysteries, family dramas, tearjerkers w happy endings (especially autumn- and holiday-centric this time of year!)
-more BIPOC in the great outdoors
-really strong voices with messy feelings
Amanda Jain @wensday95I love the Sunshine Vicram series with my whole dang heart. If you're working on a fun mystery like those books, please keep me in mind when you query. #mswl
Re-tweeting because it's still true! Sunshine Vicram, Finlay Donovan, bring me your ass-kicking, mystery solving, funny, independent women. #mswl
I would love some locked room mysteries/ thrillers.
YA/ Adult Horror like Kiersten White’s Hide, Kathryn Foxfield’s books, or Clown in a Cornfield.
Giant sharks/ cryptid books.
✨🤍📖I’m open to queries✨🤍📖
I am so so stoked to open my QM again and this time I have new things on my #mswl! I’m especially in the mood for:
MG & YA heists, competitions, mysteries, and thrillers
Adult fantasy romance
Adult contemporary romance
