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!

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

I'd love to see MG you could comp to Mary Downing Hahn & in general, more middle grade horror of all kinds, including darker MG involving mysteries/puzzles/scavenger hunts.

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.

I’m watching The Killing Season right now and if someone does not send me a mystery/thriller about an armchair sleuth ASAP I am gonna be so upset #MSWL

Jessica Wade @Jess_Wade · Oct 4

Dear literary agents, please send me historical mysteries + international mysteries with great hooks and voices we haven’t heard before. Thanks! #mswl

#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
