Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.
I should probably do a proper #mswl soon, but I’ve seen a large uptick in pitches/MSs for genre romance in my inbox, which is NOT a good fit for my list. Rom-coms, upmarket women’s fiction—yes, please! But I’m not the right person for contemporary romance.
BIG NEWS: I am open to submissions!!
I've updated my Manuscript Wishlist page and it is FULL of info (too much? maybe.). There's a lot that interests me.
Send me ALL your middle grade! Your YA rom-coms, your horror! #mswl
If I missed your #IWSGPit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: Horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & cont. MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com
Something I want to see in my inbox: a YA romcom set in space; even better if the main character is BIPOC and extra points if it's LGBTQ+ too! Not too sciencey & not fantasy or characters w/superpowers (other than being smarty pants and/or physically fit). #MSWL
I will still have the occasional ASK AGENT session from here. I'll update my #MSWL here. You can also always find my most recent manuscript wishlist on the Triada US website. Below find my current preferences. Click on the picture to see all the details. Happy 2020, everyone.😎
I have been searching for a brilliantly funny and romantic as all get out lesbian romcom for a decade now, and I’m really hoping this year I finally find it! The key here for me is it does need to be funny; the world needs more laughter. #MSWL
Still looking for a YA rom-com that’s incisive & frothy, whether it’s about partners or a novel where someone falls in love with all the many facets of themselves. A falling-in-love-with-yourself story would be amazing! #mswl
The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.
Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.
As promised, here's my #MSWL for January. As ever I am particularly keen to hear from voices that have historically been unheard in the industry. Looking forward to coming back to lots of fabulous queries!
Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, horror, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, & humor. Picture books too!!! #diversity #MSWL
Lauren Spieller 📖 @laurenspiellerOKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.
I know mythology tends to skew MG, but I’d LOVE to see more global mythology and folklore—especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know y’all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL
#MSWL. The post that was retweeted is outdated. I am looking for rom coms, historical romance, romantic suspense; women’s fiction, especially stories related to relationships; thrillers; Southern Gothics; Middle Grade and narrative nonfiction.
when i updated my website, i also updated my wishlist! please bookmark this for the new year, when i finally, at long last, reopen to queries! #mswl #amquerying #querytip
