Mystery

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 12 Sep 2018

Another MG #mswl (I'll get to YA in a bit) is a clever mystery with lots of moving pieces. Think Westing Game by Ellen Raskin or Clue 🔎

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

In mystery, I'm a sucker for stories where the setting is inseparable from the plot / characters. What Attica Locke does in BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD and Jane Harper does in the Aaron Falk books, exceptional. #mswl

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.

In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

And I like a little genre mixing, so send me your upmarket historical mysteries and psychological sci-fi horror and magical realism retelling of Hamlet. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I am a sucker for cat-and-mouse games and locked room mysteries. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I said it the other day and I'll say it again, I'd love to get more coming-of-age horror. Though I like coming-of-age mixed with mystery too, like the brilliant novel DODGING AND BURNING. #MSWL

I have been on the hunt for a locked spaceship mystery for ages now. #mswl

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I love me a cozy mystery, so keep the cozies coming. The funnier the better! #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

For YA, I typically go for a contemporary story, though I also like historical and mysteries. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl

3. #MSWL mysteries! thrillers! 1st book I sold was a mystery. Before Sookie Stackhouse I was selling mysteries for @realcharlaine & in an alternate universe the early mysteries I sold would have taken off more than the early sf/f I sold & I'd be a hotshot mystery agent

Amanda Shih @amandashih · 12 Sep 2018

I'm also always on the hunt for MG/YA reluctant-reader NF: Unsolved mysteries! Folklore/myths with a NF spin! Spies! #MSWL

One Track Literary Agency @onetracklit · 12 Sep 2018

Claire Harris @claire_m_harris · 12 Sep 2018

If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL
