Paranormal

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 7

I'd love to find a YA paranormal (romance or not) that feels fresh and has epic external stakes & high internal drama (and I remain partial in particular to vampires and werewolves). I love monsters of all stripes & would love something like Rick Yancey's MONSTRUMOLOGIST. #mswl

Lastly, we're looking for really great paranormals, whether it's #adult or #YA. On a personal note, I'm watching through Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time ever, and I would love to see something like this #MSWL

Happy 2020! I’m back open to queries!! Send me...

#MG:

LOL fantasy, contemporary tackling big topics, queer madcap ensemble adventures!

#YA:

Weird crimes/myths, underdog fantasy, dark paranormal, experimental shit!

#amquerying writers, I'm going to dedicate time over the holidays to read submissions, so now is a great time to query!

I'm eager to find more middle grade, from contemporary standalones & illustrated MG to sweeping adventure & fantasy series. I'd love more YA contemp & grounded YA fantasy or "twist of magic" stories, too. And YA paranormal (I'm here for your vampires & werewolves) #mswl

It's #SPOOKYSZN so here is an #mswl! I would really love to see a literary paranormal YA novel. Right now the only specters waking me up at night in a cold sweat are the emails I forgot to answer the day prior.

I don't know if paranormal is going to be the Next Thing in YA, but I DO know that if you've got a fresh take on it, agents, I'd love to take a look. #MSWL

Guess I should tag this thread w/ #MSWL & #PNR & #F & #Vampires #Adult #A (no YA or MG, not my rep'ing jam. Props to my fellow agents who rep those age ranges, but not my expertise.) Also if you sub me w/a project like this feel free to reply to this thread to give me a heads-up.

Another item on my wishlist: anything nonfiction involving the paranormal & supernatural (fyi one of my longtime favorite shows is ghost adventures!) #mswl

For Forge, I'm interested in road-not-taken novels--books which look at how someone's life would have played out if they'd made different choices. usually a paranormal element of some kind gets us there--parallel universe, "magical head injury," time loops....

Creepy supernatural horror/paranormal fiction with a female audience a la THE RETREAT. Shirley Jackson-esque horror where the humans are the monsters. #MSWL

Stephanie Doig @stephaniedoig · 24 Sep 2019

I am INTO the possibility of paranormal romance making a comeback. Would love (LOVE) a slow burn romance in this genre. Make it hurt! (Metaphorically.) #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 24 Sep 2019

#mswl - I would love a fresh take on YA paranormal: vampires or werewolves like we've never seen them before, or a sprawling ghost story. Something that feels both grounded and also epic in terms of it scope and stakes.

YA paranormal:
I like brooding too-hot-for-their-own-good YA heroes in paranormal and I'm not apologizing
if you can make this m/m I would die for you

Fantasy, but make it fresh: unique settings, unusual formats, underrepresented mythology, magical realism, paranormal (yes, paranormal!). I've seen a lot of queries comping to GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE and MY LADY JANE. Keep 'em coming! #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · 24 Sep 2019

I'm super in the mood for more cozy mysteries, especially those with paranormal or historical elements, and/or queer protagonists. #MSWL
