#MSWL I'd love an Adult/New Adult Harry Potter—witches, wizards, possibly academia (without the JK Rowling baggage of course).

Like THE MAGICIANS but even more accessible and with a strong romance.

I’d like to see more…
- fairy tale retellings
- dark romance

If you have a completed manuscript that fits into either of these categories, please send them my way!

7) Another adult nonfiction I’d die to rep (pun intended) is anything about death. Alternative funerals, at home body care, an emphasis on choice. I’d love something by a #deathdoula or an anthology from #hospice nurses.

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

5) I am obsessed with adult thrillers and would love to find anything that comps to Lucy Foley, Eliza Jane Brazier, Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, May Cobb, Jeneva Rose. Make me connect with characters that have a surprise dark side, and then twist the knife into me at the end!

4) In the adult nonfiction space, I'm dying for books by LGBTQ+ evangelicals who are challenging the Christian space from within the faith and bringing new perspectives (Kate Bowler, Matthew Vines, Rachel Held Evans)

3) Heartfelt and complex romance. I would die for anything that comps to "Seven Days in June" by Tia Williams, anything by Emily Henry, or "Reminders of Him" by Colleen Hoover

2) Rom-coms with a high concept situation that can be summarized quickly and make people go "ooooh" (think You've Got Mail, The Rehearsals by @MsAnnetteMC , Dream On by Angie Hockman)

In honor of being 6 days out from opening to queries for the first time, a few top-of-wishlist #mswl items...

1) Romantasy, extra points for crossover. I know, I know. Everyone wants it. And so do I. ;) Extra points for sea shanty vibes, loyal animals, disability rep, LGBTQ+ rep

#MSWL In MG in particular, I'd love to see more urban fantasy adventures like Percy Jackson featuring casts of really loveable characters in really epic situations.

Upper MG, YA crossover, and YA like LEGENDBORN is definitely welcome too!

Hi Agents: Updating my #MSWL to let you know that I'm no longer able to acquire books that are strictly romance focused, though romantic sub-plots are fine. Still looking forward to seeing your thrillers, mild horror and stories with fantastical elements.
