“Young Adult: historical fiction, LGBTQ+ romance, a story about a boy band, mysteries and thrillers, magical realism with gorgeous prose, a novel-in-verse, experimental story structure.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
My #MSWL for nonfiction includes self-help/health/wellness, pop psychology & pop science, narrative nonfiction, and select memoir. For fiction, it's historical fiction, commercial fiction, thriller + psych suspense + crime fiction. Open to queries + can't wait to hear from you!
#MSWL Would really love to see a thriller where the person being pursued is just as ruthless as the pursuant. A real "oh you messed with the wrong woman." Has been trained in combat, is a recreational fighter, HOME ALONE style traps—give me all of it. In both YA and adult.
-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters
- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7
-what I'm calling the "rom dram," or romantic drama, with deep emotional conflict, rather than plot-driven drama
-social thrillers and horror w. commercial pacing, but have a deeper level of weight to them about something that occupies the social consciousness today #MSWL 3/7
“I am interested in a variety of YA genres: contemporary, magical realism, horror, mystery, thriller, and light fantasy. I enjoy literary prose combined with a strong voice and high concept.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
Carlisle Webber @carliebethIt’s #WishlistWednesday, so here are the types of books I’m hoping to sign in 2021 #MSWL #amquerying
In general, I want commercial #fiction for MG, YA, and adult: contemporary, mystery, thriller, suspense, horror
I'd love to see in my queries:
- Atmospheric, woodsy, lush horror like THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING (YA, A)
- Domestic/psychological thrillers by BIPOC authors (A)
- Scavenger hunts (MG, YA, A)
- Eerie spec fic in isolated settings (CATHERINE HOUSE, THE WATER CURE)

✨Any rom from BIPOC creators
✨Queer & QBIPOC f/f & f/nb rom
✨Queer witchy rom com
✨Queer romantic fantasy
✨Queer domestic thrillers
I’m noticing a theme here 🏳️🌈📚
"Dark, twisted, borderline disturbing… words I’d use to describe my interest in thrillers. Not looking for gore at the moment, but definitely into psychological elements. Especially fictionalized accounts of actual crimes." @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Copps Literary Services @CoppsLiteraryHello, #amwriting Twitter! We're a new literary agency founded by @escopps & @CKEmmelhainz and we are officially... open! Check us out and please help us spread the word: coppsliterary.com #pubtips #amquerying pic.twitter.com/oWpUCmS4tO
#MSWL update! I'm now accepting thrillers in adult fiction (as well as in YA, which has always been the case). I am NOT looking for anything law-enforcement focused, including FBI/CIA. I am looking for the story to contribute to a larger sociopolitical conversation.
Domestic thrillers! I'd love to see a cat and mouse dynamic between the protagonist and antagonist. I tore through #TheGuestList ✨ And, bonus points if 'no body, no crime' could be a viable theme song ✨ Please note, I'm not the strongest fit for military/espionage thrillers
I'm currently open to submissions @ReadictN looking specifically for #PNR #Romance #SFR and #thrillers with love interests. Get paid up front $500-$10,000
