Seeking literary fiction in these classic genres: dark speculative/sci-fi (near-future), crime, thriller. Unique hooks & new views. Linguistic & storytelling mastery, high personal stakes, psychological depth. ❤️Kazuo Ishiguro, Katie Kitamura, Ted Chiang, Naomi Alderman #MSWL
I'd like a friendship thriller in the vein of Dead to Me. #MSWL
“Psychological thrillers with new twists on classic tropes: unstable (or unhinged) narrators, missing memories or time, seemingly decent people with dark pasts, stalking, gaslighting in any form.” @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Okay, folks: here’s your heads up! I will be opening to queries on JULY 1 and will only be open for ONE WEEK! I’ll be looking for romance and thrillers, mostly; but check out my #MSWL for more info. I’ll post the query link as we get closer. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…
"Thriller (legal, medical, political, etc.), Mystery (cozy, private eye, police procedural, etc.)" @CurtisPSLA #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
“Psychological thrillers with elements of horror (light on the gore).” @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
just a reminder I'm officially opening for queries tomorrow! mainly, I'm looking for sff/horror/mystery/thrillers across MG, YA, & adult, and some select GN and nonfiction. you can find my extended #mswl page below & I look forward to reading!
#ThreeHills focuses on works set in NY State & esp those north of NYC. I'm interested in commercial fiction w/ literary crossover—literary fiction, sci-fi, mystery, & thriller. We do *not* publish romance, fantasy, YA, children’s lit, poetry, drama, or works in translation.
#MSWL So, I do take mysteries/thrillers and detective stories, and a current want is something in the nature of Silver and Opal Country by Chris Hammer, where the place the novel is set is a character in its own right (in that case, the Australian outback).
Logan Harper @LoganRHarperWill be participating in #PitDark today! If I like your pitch, please send your query letter, synopsis, and first three chapters to lharper(at)janerotrosen(dot)com.
I am also open to queries! I’m particularly hungry for adult and literary horror, dark and twisty suspense, & social horror or thrillers with a speculative edge. Full #mswl at the link in my bio, and you can submit to me here: janerotrosen.com/submissions
Can't do #pitdark today but I *WANT* you to query me with:
--dark academia in YA/Adult
--grounded, scary YA Fantasy
--thrillers/suspense in YA/Adult
I am especially keen to find these written by BIPOC! We need more of those voices on shelves! #mswl
Also if you've written a YA Thriller or Horror, I'd love to see it. As well, select YA Fantasy will also be considered. YA with a quirky unique cast of characters is a yes, please!

My areas of expertise are upmarket and literary fiction, women's fiction, mystery, suspense and thriller. I love books w/ strong family focus (found, friends, those you're born with) and home. Even in mystery I love those connections #MSWL
At long last, I have a #MSWL! Find the link below and in my bio: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/hann…

My #MSWL page is now live over at the Manuscript Wish List site.
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over and look!
Elisa Houot @ElisaHouotTime for an updated #MSWL 🧵! Here are some projects I would love to see in my QueryManager inbox:
*Picture books Nonfiction and informational, especially anything about people who changed the world but aren't as known for it as they should be
*Picture Books on Halloween (fiction)

For adult, I would love to see some gorgeous sweeping historical fiction, something to make me laugh out loud, original, high-concept crime/thrillers and cosy crime, and those all-consuming love stories you just have to tell all your friends about💙
