Been meaning to mention that I have an editor #MSWL page a la @ManuscriptWList.
#Writers: this may also be a helpful starting point to see what a #literaryagent is looking for in #submissions.
#MSWL Mysteries, including cozies, historicals, traditional, PI; Suspense; Romances, including Amish, Inspirational, Sweet, RomCom, Western, Historical, Suspense; Pictures Books (600 words and less preferred), Middle Grade Mysteries, True Crime, Cookbooks blueridgeagency.com
Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.
Starting in January I will be accepting nonfiction queries in addition to YA. Send me your memoirs, pop culture, food, lifestyle, true crime, narrative, or any combo of the above! #MSWL #Nonfiction #WritingCommunity
3/ Only 11% of my list is non-fiction! Please send me your deep-dive journalism, progressive true crime, essay collections, and science books! Think @esmewang's COLLECTED SCHIZOPHRENIAS or @yourewrongabout.
Irulan, Princess Royal, Bene Gesserit-trained @Nicole_CliffeWhat’s the one unsolved mystery you most want answers to in your lifetime?
I’m cheating bc it’s MY prompt.
1. What happened to Asha Degree?
2. What happened to the Beaumont Children?
3. Who the HELL was the Freeway Phantom?
I'm just saying, but all these unsolved stories are *exactly* the kind of deep-dive queries I want to see in my inbox. True crime, fiction based on these, whatever. It's my catnip. #MSWL
