For our third and final children's book agency Meet the Team post, we meet @LitAgentClare 🌟Clare is on the lookout for new and exciting talent, so head over to our blog for her manuscript wish list 👀 #MSWL
#MSWL: YA comedic post-apoc survival novel where they assemble a team to survive:
1 to drive a stick shift
1 who can read a map
1 who can read “ancient scripts” (Cursive. I’m talking about cursive)
1 who can use a land line
A “math genius” who can do basic math w/o a calculator.
I'd love a survivalist horroresque novel or survivalist dystopian YA. Think Wilder Girls by Rory Power! Give me off the grid islands, plagues, a trip gone gone wrong, the end that begins as a whisper.
#MSWL update! Still looking for some good #horror and other creepy stories and mysteries. In #fantasy would love something not focused on royalty/rebellions to round out my list. Would love some survival stories along the lines of Dry or I Am Still Alive.
4/4 #MSWL Young adult: contemporary romance & dating; LGBTQ+; diverse families and ownvoices; captivating voice in narrative; well-structured mystery; survival; suspense; self-esteem; mental health; body positivity; well-rounded supporting cast; subversive outcast; happy endings.
For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.
In #sciencefiction wouldn't mind a space survival or new planet survival story. Think Adrift by Rob Boffard or Semiosis. Love stories about crashing or landing on unknown planets and the early days of colonization or the journey. #MSWL
I'm still searching for my MG survival story! Please send me your shipwrecks, deserted islands, mountains, forests, jungles, deep sea diving, lost in the big city, kayaking, camping trips gone wrong, treasure hunts… I'll take them all! #mswl
I'm also looking for survival romances (NOT ROMANTIC SUSPENSE), where the H&H have to rely on each other to survive. Think wilderness and disaster stories. Send query and 1st five pages pasted in body of email to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL
