I am once again asking the authors of Twitter to send me their dark academia manuscripts #MSWL
I am completely up to date on queries and nearly so with requested MSS (just 3 in the queue!) so am in dire need of more! Please send your "comps to KJ Charles" specfic romance, Hannibal-esque sexy horror, dark academia, MG mysteries, and all your funny stuff to the front #MSWL
I still love and rep kidlit! Currently I'm hoping to see more NF in the teen and tween space. I'm always interested in the well researched historical period type project, but am also hoping to see new formats and takes on trade NF! #MSWL
On the book club side, I love stories about toxic female friendships, family sagas with the layers and humor of a prestige soap opera, and novels that skirt the line between commercial WF and thrillers. #MSWL
Bibi Lewis @Bibi_LewisHi #amquerying writers! I am chomping at the bit to take on new projects right now. Below are a few things I'm really hoping to see this year (and beyond!) 📚📚
Highest on my #mswl is Romance and WF/Book Club Fiction. In Romance I like tropey, character driven books with a feminist bite and a big hook.
#GN horror, contemporary, HF, retelling, mythology
#CB/early readers anything goes for fiction. For NF STEM, Bios of little know historical figures
I love books that show all the brilliant colors of my community 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️ and underrepresented voices
I open to #queries on Jan 17-Feb 17. Here's my #MSWL
#PB anything goes for fiction. For NF STEM
#MG for fiction horror, contemporary, adventure, HF. For NF field/nature guides
#YA horror, contemporary, retellings, HF, romance. For NF cookbooks, STEM, Inspirational
I'm so excited to open back up to queries next week (1/18!)! My online #mswl continues to be a great place to find out what I like, and I'm definitely looking for thrillers that make me go 😱, historicals that make me go😭🥰, and contemporary fiction that makes me go 🧐😍
🎉🎉BIG NEWS: I'm joining @LucindaLitNYC! I'm excited to expand their children's program and support their NF list, with some SFF as well. You can find what I'm looking for here: lucindaliterary.com/about/team/ and there will be some #MSWL updates soon!🥳
BookEnds Literary @bookendslitThis week's #MSWL spotlight falls on @jmcgowanbks! James says, "In #horror, I'm not afraid to go dark and am open to supernatural of some kind. However, I do prefer things be grounded." If that sounds like your novel, send it over to him via this link: querymanager.com/query/jmcgowan
