I missed participating in the @bookendslit #MSWL Day round up due to meetings, but behold my #MSWL anyway... (1/5)

James is seeking upmarket/book club fiction, mystery, suspense and thrillers. Some things he is drawn to in a novel are commercial, high-concept plots, exciting settings, fast pacing, a fresh spin on a familiar trope, grounded speculative elements, rich prose (2/5) #MSWL

—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist

Oh hey it's #MSWL day! Here's a link to my new shiny page. TLDR: I want adult fiction that stretches my imagination, and connects me back to big chewy ideas in the real world. Fresh speculative fiction, philosophical SFFH, ambitious satires.…

#MSWL: Light paranormal romance, especially paranormal romantic comedy
Gothic romance/Gothic fiction
Uplit, feel-good women’s fiction, especially with speculative elements
Dark/darkly funny women’s fiction and romantic comedy (think Love in the Time of Serial Killers)

Fiction #mswl

For commercial fiction I liked BEACH READ, ONE TO WATCH. I want the genre to feel subverted in someway. A new hook.

I'm OK with lightly speculative fiction too like THIS TIME TOMORROW or THE TWELVE LIVES OF SAMUEL HAWLEY

#MSWL DAY! February 16th. All day long!

I've updated my #MSWL page for their great new platform and look forward to queries - especially if it's a multicultural love story, a
BIPOC perspective on history (fiction or nonfiction), a thriller in an unusual time and place...
Happy #MSWL Day! 👇🤗…

The updated Manuscript Wishlist website looks wonderful - what a great resource. As always, my #MSWL is broad - a multi-generational family saga; speculative; something escapist/hopeful. My full #MSWL is here:…

In contemp fantasy I am looking for hooky, fresh premises like IF YOU COULD SEE THE SUN & LEGENDBORN in YA, and on the adult side, speculative thrillers like NINTH HOUSE, BLACK WATER SISTER, and MAGIC FOR LIARS.
