Y’all know I love Horror. Do y’all know that the first movie I ever saw was Child’s Play? That I grew up on that series, and Nightmare on Elm St, and Friday The 13th?
I like my horror with comedy, scares, and a largely teen cast. W/genre bends like The Final Girls (2015) #mswl
ML Brennan @BrennanMLI think what I'd really like right now is a cozy British village murder mystery show where Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are elderly widower neighbors who bicker a lot about their gardens, and also solve crimes. And there's a super hot grandson who has to drive them around.

Uh, I'm super into this. #MSWL
From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg
And @a_cochran says: I’m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesn’t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS
On to @EmF1nn, who's hunting for love stories (platonic/romantic/big messy families); gorgeous writing with page-turning plot; high concept fiction with an arresting premise and characters to do it justice; immersive, cross-genre narrative non-fiction... bit.ly/3bnKerI
“Picture Books: the Wheel of the Year, cultural traditions/history, tales of mythology and lore, object-based nonfiction (no biographies), ghosts.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
Next, @AgentSophieL, who wants a beautifully written love story heart warming and heart breaking in equal measure, a voice driven literary novel that speaks to us now and narrative nonfiction/memoir that offers up a window to another place/moment. More at bit.ly/3bq1wEK
as entertainingly informative as SAPIENS by Yuval Noah Harari, something as transporting and heart-breaking as THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING by TH White or with the sheer audacity and brilliance of KINDRED by Olivia E Butler. Read more about Clare's list here: bit.ly/3aok4oW
First up is our fearless leader @C_Conville, who wants something as bittersweet as THE PURSUIT OF LOVE by Nancy Mitford, as fiendishly clever as PALE FIRE by Vladimir Nabokov, as engrossing as IN A PLACE OF GREATER SAFETY by Hilary Mantel...
Idk who's been checking in the #MSWL tweets, but just putting it out there, for anyone who's researching and building agent lists: bit.ly/39h6wKf. I will be re-opening to queries on 05/01, and want adult and YA fiction, and non-fiction. Getting there!

I’d 🖤 a scifi novel about all the aliens who’ve been quietly monitoring us for years who suddenly show up all at the same time when they start getting satellite images back of our planet after it went “quiet” due to coronavirus #MSWL so I want worried mothering alien overlords!
