As 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

I would love to see more YA Thrillers and Mysteries in my inbox! #MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Nov 13

I'd love to find a super high concept YA thriller in my inbox. #mswl

Beth Marshea @busybethm · Nov 13

I'd love a survivalist thriller with horror crossover (open to ghosts, but not required), particularly about women. #mswl

I am back. Give me something unique. Give me something fierce. I am ready #MSWL (agented- contemporary fiction, mystery/thrillers, YA)

Jennifer AAHHHH Grimaldi is closed to queries @JA_Grimaldi · Nov 11

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

Eva Dietrich @aladdinbooks · Nov 9

It'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.…

#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!

Hannah Weatherill @hgweatherill · Oct 30

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.

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

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Oct 25

The change of season has me hankering for a dark, twisty YA thriller or a chilling, atmospheric horror! Send me your goodies, writers! #MSWL #querytip #amquerying

allison hellegers @allidhellegers · Oct 24

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.

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Oct 24

Lastly, one exception to all this is that I consume domestic thrillers like candy, especially those with wild twists. I loved The Girl Before. Please send me your domestic thrillers.

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · Oct 24

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

#overheard two 20 somethings talking about #books yesterday. Readers still want more of the same - just different? I wonder what a #dystopian, #postapocalyptic #domestic #thriller might look like? #bookslike #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Oct 10

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.

Tara Gilbert🏳️‍🌈📖🔮 @Literary_Tara · Oct 8

One of my favorite thrillers is Butterfly Effect (dont @ me!). And I'd love to have a YA with similar themes. Of course, I'd love any YA/NA psychological thrillers. #mswl

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Oct 8

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller

I 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.
