Since it's still January, time for an updated 2024 #MSWL ! I'm currently really on the lookout for psychological thriller (a la Riley Sager), mysteries (cozy and whodunnits please), and light horror (nothing too gory, I want to sleep at night). Dark academia a plus as well!

Going into 2024, I would love to acquire clean (light romance/no or minimal cursing) YA fiction of any genre except fantasy. I am also seeking clean adult commerical romance/romcoms and compelling book club fiction. #MSWL #authorcommunity #amquerying

Locked-room YA thrillers
Rivals-to-lovers tension-filled romcoms
Unbearably clever YA heroes
Romantasy with characters to die for
An MG novel full of magical creatures

In nonfiction, I want to be hooked by the idea of learning something new, discover a new angle on a topic I love, and find projects that are accessible to their audiences. Specifically, I'm craving women's and LGBTQ+ issues, gardening/sustainability, and food content #MSWL

Always for me, characters are key, and there are few better characters than those in women's fiction! Bring me those friendships, those internal conflicts, the complications of being a human woman (a la the BARBIE movie). If there's a twist of some sort, so much the better! #MSWL

When I think of joy and heart, romcoms always come to mind, and I'm craving them this year! I want charm, humor, strong internal conflicts, banter, yearning, and suave love interests! Think Sangu Mandanna, Cat Sebastian, Anita Kelly, Jeaniene Frost, and BEACH READ #MSWL

In the world of kidlit, I also want to see more MG, especially SFF. There's so much to love in this space—quick pacing, accessible themes, and a lasting impact on readers. Think AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS, LALANI OF THE DISTANT SEA, or anything from Rick Riordan Presents #MSWL

...YA, to start! Across genres, joyful, diverse, heartfelt YA novels with compelling plots and characters stood out to me last year, and I would love more on my list! Think ELATSOE, YEAR OF THE REAPER, YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN, LITTLE THIEVES, THE GHOSTS OF ROSE HILL #MSWL

We're well into January, which means—now that the hustle and bustle of the New Year has slowed down and I've had time to consider my inbox—I have some additions to my 2024 #MSWL !

To be clear, everything I've asked for previously still stands. But this year, I'm really craving...

I updated my #MSWL page for the first time in... a decade? And I'm looking forward to reading some great submissions in 2024.

Agents, among other things, I'd love to find a feel-good underdog sports story to weep over and/or edit. Hit me up! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/katherine-harrison/
