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...
LOL fantasy, contemporary tackling big topics, queer madcap ensemble adventures!
Weird crimes/myths, underdog fantasy, dark paranormal, experimental shit!

Peter Knapp @petejknapp#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
Alexis Henderson @alexhwritesI want paranormal angel romance to be a thing again. But instead of the love interest being a male model with wings, it’s like an interdimensional cosmic horror nightmare with ninety-eight eyeballs.
#MSWL please 🙏🏼
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.
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.
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....
#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.
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
Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharptaking a quick break from editing to post a few #mswl wishes!
I can't tweet everything I want here, so please don't take this as a complete list
remember I am an EDITOR not an agent--please research the publisher I work for before sending, make sure we're a fit
here we go...
YA - I will consider ANYTHING that's YA, but more specifically...
**fantasy--ALL types, yes even paranormal
**also something spooky, I want chills when I read
**and sci-fi - I particularly like sci-fi with a thriller element and it has to have a lot of action/adventure
