Hello #WritingCommunity! New year, New #MSWL Send me your: high concept thrillers🕵️, page turning women's fiction 👭, general fiction with a palpable romance , and life changing non fiction ⚡️
Lindsay Flanagan 🦄 @LindsFlanagan(Clears throat) Whoops was so excited to share the news I was taking pitches, I messed up my own title. Let's try this again:
News! I'm the literary agent assistant for @Jacqui_Lipton @TobiasLiteraryAgency's adult department and am in training to be an agent! 1/4
If you’re interested in pitching me, check out @Jacqui_Lipton @annmrose @LaneHeymont @Sarah_Nicolas and Stefanie Rossitto #MSWL. Personally, I am excited to hear about adult fantasy, mystery, romance, women’s fiction, upmarket, and maybe even a thriller. 3/4
2/3 My #MSWL for pitches is: adult work only in fantasy (all categories), mystery, thriller, romance, women’s fiction, upmarket, and maybe even a thriller. My dream acquisition would have been The Night Circus. I like work that has hints of magic and a bit of darkness.
Some tropes I love: enemies to lovers, workplace romance, fake dating, whatever the opposite of small town romance is. I am also down for a supernatural element and love the current contemporary/paranormal mashup we are seeing! #MSWL
I am especially looking for Queer romance and romance featuring disabled people! I have been getting more of these in my inbox but not NEARLY enough. Please send me them. #MSWL
Romance—way more of it! Rom-Coms so funny that make me snort out my coffee, historicals with so much tension I want to pull my hair out, adventure/caper romance that takes me on a nailbiting ride or presents me with a mystery to solve. #MSWL
My new #MSWL is live on my site! Mark your calendars for Valentines Day, when I repoen to #amquerying writers!
So, what am I seeking? This year I'm prioritizing queer specfic, BIPOC voices, and romance novels of all kinds. Let's dive into the specifics!
I am opening to Adult Fiction ✨ In Adult, please send me your Cozy Mysteries, Thrillers and Mysteries!
I am also looking for contemporary romance novels!
Here's everything you need to know about our Valentine's Pitch Event! #onwriting #amwriting #amquerying #romance #romancewriters #mswl #litagent #AuthorsOfTwitter darleyandersonblog.com/2023/01/18/lov… via @DA_Agency
"Seeking romance, literary, commercial, suspense, young adult, middle grade, and picture books."
- YA historical/ +fantasy/ +romance that doesn’t take itself too seriously a la My Lady Jane, Gentleman’s Guide, Bridgerton, The Great
- Native and rural voices, especially from the Pacific Northwest or Inland Northwest
Adult Romance: High concept stories that are just shy of bonkers are always my jam. If you have to caveat an idea with “wait, but hear me out” it’s likely that I will be interested in seeing more. #mswl
Adult Romance: Romance that sweeps me off my feet. Heroes who love hard and fast and true. I ADORE a good HE FALLS FIRST story. I also love it when HE TRIES TO SAVE HER BUT SHE SAVED HERSELF FIRST. #mswl
Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMaking a rare Twitter appearance to say:
- I reopened to queries today.
- I am now open to adult contemporary, commercial fiction (romcom, romance, mystery/thriller, etc) 😬
- I am scared.
As far as what I want in adult: Good hooks, gripping plots, strong characters. I either want light, funny & swoony for the romcom/romance, or layered, smart and edge-of-seat for the thrillers. Sticking with commercial, contemporary for adult for now. No SFF. #mswl #querytip
(And as always, if you can pitch your manuscript as "Twin Peaks meets romance" I will drop everything to read it. I am fully convinced this idea makes for a great romantic suspense novel and I will drop everything to read it.)
--A Rom-Com+. A great romance with high quality writing and a meaningful B-plot, like Joya Goffney's EXCUSE ME WHILE I UGLY CRY. (or the romance could be the B plot)
--Sweeping, cinematic adventures with a fun romance
It's #mswl for @TheTobiasAgency! My wishlist and other info can always be found at sarahnfisk.com, but I thought I'd highlight a couple things.
I'm especially looking to find adult romance, contemporary ya, and some fun MG right now. Not that I'm not open to others!
I want an Anne and Gilbert romance because let's just acknowledge the epic tropes here.
Also that slate smashing scene is still 🤌🤌 #MSWL
Stefanie Rossitto #MSWL I am also looking for a book on menopause: I want it to be timely and hilarious - it can be a rom-com/ romance/ women's fiction
To go along with this, in romance any of the following is greatly encouraged to find its way into my inbox
