I'm also looking for that book-club/psych thriller middle-ground, in the vein of Liane Moriarty, where there are lots of dark secrets and surprising twists and characters that could be someone you know.

In historical fiction, I would love something witchy and gothic. My taste tends towards under-represented voices from history, rather than a regency court romance. I'd love historical fiction by black and Asian voices. I love historical +mystery, or historical +love story.

In crime fiction I'm still on the hunt for a great new regional British crime series. I love atmospheric, character driven, rich crime stories like Tana French. I love modern twists on classic detective fiction. I like locked room mysteries and cosy crime villages.

(I love queer fiction and queer stories, from all parts of the sexuality and gender spectra, including coming out and coming of age stories but also just LGBTQ people doing normal stuff people in books can do - solve crimes, fall in love, makes mistakes and find themselves)

I'm looking for dark, gritty or issues-driven contemporary fiction. I'm here for tricky family dynamics, generational divides, the nuances of modern relationships. I loved My Dark Vanessa, Normal People, Such A Fun Age.

Hattie @hatteatime

I judge all my submissions on three criteria - strength of concept (is it marketable? is it individual? is it interesting?), confidence of voice (you get a sense of the fluency of a voice from one page alone) and sustained compelling storytelling (which I need a full ms to judge)

Right now I'm looking for contemporary fiction (both commercial and upmarket), historical fiction and crime fiction. I'm really keen to hear from diverse voices - BIPOC writers, LGBT writers, regional writers, disabled writers, working class writers, writers without a degree.

Brian Wask @BrianWask

@UweStenderPhD Do you want to know how the story ends?
Replying to @BrianWask

In a query, no. In a synopsis, yes. But I never request a synopsis so please take my advice with a grain, or several grains, of salt.

Teresa @TeresaTraver1

@UweStenderPhD Is getting the query letter perfect as important as people say, or do first pages matter more?
Replying to @TeresaTraver1

It depends on the agent. If you wrote a lousy query letter to me, I would likely pass instantly, & not look further. If I love your query, I will ask for the full. & then, I need to love whatever I am reading to keep reading. Other agents, incl. at Triada US, do it differently.

Kristi Tragethon IS in FULL teacher mode! @KristiTragethon

@UweStenderPhD #askagent How long do you (on average) take to review a full manuscript? And if you’re on the fence about it...do you put it aside of awhile?
Replying to @KristiTragethon

That depends. Sadly, these days it can take me months, and other times, days. It depends on how busy/distracted/focused I am both professionally and personally. My average is probably 7 or 8 weeks. Sometimes I wonder if I should offer or request an R&R. That could delay things.
