I'm also hunting for a book with horror as its subgenre, specifically atmospheric horror, and ideally in space or at the bottom of the ocean. I’d love something propulsive and creepy (3/5)

I'd LOVE a fantasy sports book with strong found family vibes, especially queer found family. Like a magical FENCE or BLUE LOCK or, truthfully THE FOXHOLE COURT (sans the problematic elements) (2/5)

I would love a how-to mixed with memoir about farming. Be it a small mom and pop farm OR how large farming can operate in a sustainable manner. #mswl

If any of this describes your book, we’d love to see a query, synopsis, and the first 3 chapters/30 pages at ny (at) susannalea (dot) com.

If not, try us anyway! We’re always interested in finding new voices. 4/4

High-concept, female-led thrillers. We prefer our protagonists snarky and morally gray. Who doesn’t love a messed up antiheroine?

We’re also looking for writers in the crime & mystery space. Very commercial and propulsive. Could be dark or light and quirky, like KNIVES OUT. 3/4

Grounded speculative fiction and/or contemporary or historical fantasy, esp. if on the darker side. Maybe even incorporating horror or thriller. If you’re comping NINTH HOUSE, we want to read it!

We’re probably NOT a fit for romantasy, epic fantasy, or hard scifi. 2/4

I would love a sports romance in the vein of Jason and Kylie Kelce’s origin story. Make him a teddy bear like Jason and give him a playboy brother like Travis for a possible book 2. Bonus points if she’s a pro athlete, too.

"With memoir, I love a story that feels like I'm reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill 's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe 's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space."
