Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnAs the holidays approach, some news:
I'll be closing to queries Dec. 1 - 31. I have a pile of queries & subs to catch up on, so please add yours to it before Dec. 1 if you wish!
#amquerying #amagenting #WritingCommunity
While I'm at it, a quick #MSWL of things I would love to see right now:
- Big-hearted contemporary MG
- MG horror
- A domestic thriller
- YA thriller/horror
- YA/A speculative/light sci-fi (think Black Mirror)
- MG/YA/A with a culinary theme
if you send me a creepy thriller/suspense/whatever abt the extreme horror of having one (1) person to set your world view however they like it I will cry and then I will call you #MSWL
Abby Saul @BookySaulIt's the final countdown, #WritingCommunity! I'll be closed to queries starting next week, so get them in now! Otherwise I'll look forward to reading in 2020. twitter.com/BookySaul/stat…
#MSWL is always adult fiction (particularly women's, mysteries, thrillers, historical, and select literary) that is doing something new. Underexplored settings, unusual characters, turning tropes on their head - gimme!
Here's a friendly reminder that I'm open to submissions! If you've got a twisty thriller or an emotional reading group or women's fiction novel (or something entirely different) that's ready to submit, go to the @NorthbankTalent website to find out how.
Leodora Darlington @Leodora_I know there may be great pitches that I don't see, so if I haven't favourited your pitch, but you think we'd be a good fit, please do still send me your MS marked 'FAO: Leodora #DVpit'.
I would love to find some twisty psych/domestic thrillers. I also have a soft spot for heartbreaking historical or women's fiction. Finally, if you're sitting on a crime novel with a killer hook, please send it my way. #MSWL
Speaking of #PitDark and #MSWL, does anyone have a thriller as nuanced and developed as the Swedish book/film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN? What that book did for (spoiler alert) vampires I'd like to see your book do for...surprise me.
If I missed your #PitDark pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: horror, thriller, SFF, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & cont. MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI would like to see more psychological thrillers in YA #mswl
Yes! Send me stories that bend reality and make me question the stability of the main character.
Or even better, a main character who is hiding information from the reader.
