Feels a bit like tweeting into the void, but before this bird app fully tanks I would really love it if someone sent me a mystery/suspense/thriller with some Mare of Easttown vibes. #MSWL
Crime/thriller. A strong hook. A killer plot. Impossible-to-ignore characters. Think simmering tension and unbearable suspense. (Not currently looking for police procedurals.) #mswl
Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡
I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!
🤔 Psychological Thriller 🧠
I’m looking for psychological thriller and domestic suspense which is twisty and has a unique hook. I love an unreliable narrator and the feeling of not knowing who to trust. Shock, surprise and confuse me in the best ways!
- suspense and psychological thrillers, but specifically with a textured, vibrant sense of setting (think Gillian Flynn’s SHARP OBJECTS)
- folklore and mythological retellings, particularly non-Eurocentric traditions
- magical realism
#MSWL: My adult #fiction list will be smaller but think upmarket #BookClub fiction or domestic suspense--something that will keep me up at night. Really enjoyed Angie Kim's Miracle Creek. Has to feel #contemporary, braiding together issues of social import & identity.
I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.
In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.
Send me adult + #YA literary thrillers and horror. I am a suspense junkie, who loves to be scared, and I can go very, very dark--except please no violence against children or rape. But blood and gore are fine.
As are creepy dolls and bad romance (but maybe not together?).
#MSWL I am open to queries! Looking for Adult and Crossover SFF, and Adult Speculative that blends either WF, horror, literary fiction, or suspense with speculative elements.
Looking forward to seeing your work!
I’m thrilled to announce I’m a new Literary Associate at Olswanger Literary! I’ll open to submissions on September 1, accepting adult fiction and nonfiction.
If you think we might be a match (my tastes are wide & varied) please query me in September!
Pssst, I have reopened to queries!
The long and short of it is: I'd like to see less Fantasy, and more of other genres (suspense, romance, historical). #mswl
(I am still open to Fantasy. See next tweet).
A suspenseful #MSWL from @jenissamichelle!
"In YA, a buildup in suspense (13 REASONS WHY) with a diverse cast of characters. Similar to EVEN IF WE BREAK by Marieke Nijkamp or ONE OF US IS LYING where different POV's can help drive the plot."
#mswl Now I'm settled at @TheTobiasAgency, I'm open to queries: esp. seeking mystery, suspense, thrillers; nonfiction highlighting unique and diverse perspectives; romance (MG thru adult); querymanager.com/query/jacquili… Also tagging
@Sarah_Nicolas--what are you looking for?
