Heists, heists, and more heists. The bigger the shenanigans, the better. I love to especially see character relationships and arcs being tested/explored as the mission goes on. Think Portrait of Thief, Six of Crows, Bullet Train, etc.

YA romcoms or YA contemporary with romantic elements. Especially if they're queer! Think Heartstopper, Young Royals, You Should See Me in a Crown, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, etc. The cuter and fluffier, the better.

Stories with the entrenched characters arcs, cults, unreliable narrators, eeriness, and survival component of Yellowjackets. I am OBSESSED with this show to say the least and would love to see these elements in the YA thriller/horror space or the adult speculative space.

I wan the snap, crackle and pop of the character chemistry that Sarah J. Maas has in the ACOTAR. And I don't mean the sexy times, but the actual character interactions (side characters and all) #MSWL

"Would love to see more psychological horror in my query inbox—especially anything with a remote location (“abandoned” anything is a major selling point for me!), a haunted house (house as character!), and/or a final girl."

Young Adult/New Adult: I am open to magical realism, contemporary fiction, thriller (+), mystery, and low fantasy. I am especially on the lookout for a sports story (where sports is the center of the story, like the shows Spinning Out, Pitch).

Middle Grade: I am looking for mystery stories! I also welcome magical realism and contemporary. In contemporary, I am especially looking for a story where sports is a big part.

I am opening back up to queries today! Time for an updated #MSWL 🧵 QueryManager.com/ElisaHouot

I am always looking for Picture Books (non-rhyming)! I tend to prefer funny stories and stories that focus on family, but I love a good unexpected narrator!
