Seeking any mix of the following:
Sci-fi • space opera, aliens, monsters, romance
Fantasy • high/epic/second-world, retellings, mythical creatures, *limited* magical systems, time travel, academia, romance
So excited to announce that I'll be opening for queries next week on Monday!
My full #MSWL can be found on my website: leahnovamoss.wixsite.com/my-site/manuscript-wishlist
I can't wait to read your queries soon! I'll have a #MSWL thread up soon as well.
#amquerying #writingcommunity #amagenting
As a small sampling of things I love and am on the lookout for:
Genre-benders (think Romantasy, thrillers with a dash of romance, etc)
Speculative with heart (AS King, Adam Silvera, Kacen Callendar)
Thrillers (Isolated settings and beyond)
Sci-Fi (grounded and/or sweeping)
Friendly reminder to #amquerying authors: I open to all queries (within YA & Adult SFF and romance) on Friday, 9/1!
I’m in pretty good shape with numbers right now (I think 60 ish queries and 25 fills), and I’m excited to see what y’all send me!
5. Speculative/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: I don't really have specifics here, but I'd love anything that completely transports me to a new world and makes me crave the setting/characters once I finish. Books like Matched, Fourth Wing, Babel, Artemis. Bring on the book hangover. (6/8)
#MSWL 🧵 before I open to queries on Friday!
I will be open to most genres of YA and Adult including but not limited to contemporary, romance, thriller, speculative, dystopian, issue-driven, fantasy, eco-fiction, sci-fi. Here's some things I'll be keeping my eye out for. (1/8)
My bookshelf is 50% character-driven sff/speculative/spooky, 50% realistic contemporary/historical (coming-of-age romance, mystery/thriller, action-adventure, and verse novels), mostly by BIPOC, queer, or traditionally underrepresented folks, & my taste very much reflects that.
#MSWL Agents, I've been seeing some fantastic YA sff subs. I'll never say no to sff that captures my heart, but I'm also on the lookout for gorgeously written verse/prose, layered coming-of-age (historical or contemp) esp if it weaves in queer romance and/or mystery/suspense.
I thought I might try a #MSWL thread with a slightly different spin. Agents, these are a selection of my favourite books of all time, in no particular order, so you can get to know the kind of SFF I love.

#MSWL Also space ships, generation ships, small ships, big ships, near-future, far-future, aliens, human or not, space exploration for the joy of adventure, space exploration to save earth from disaster, aliens come to us, nice aliens, bad aliens, neutral aliens.
#MSWL I love the voices of Andy Weir & Martha Wells in science fiction. Andy is so smart but the science feels approachable. Plus his voice is real & smart, witty, real. And totally same vibes from Martha. They make science fiction approachable & easy. Give me that.
The above is only a snapshot of some very specific areas I'm interested in, so if your story has intricate world-building & characters who feel like real portraits (humour/romance a +) please do send to christabelsubmissions(a)davidhigham.co.uk and I'd love to read it #mswl
I lean more towards fantasy than sci-fi, but always love an intricately built space opera. I'm more attracted to the human aspects, so what I'd really love is a Space Soap Opera: imagine Shonda Rhimes writing a show, but setting it on a spaceship. High drama + high stakes! #mswl
