Dear #amquerying writers,
I'm working from home (as is everyone) and I really need some escapist queries in my inbox. Send me your upmarket women's fiction, contemporary romances, thrillers, and contemporary fantasies (+1 if it's queer, +1 if it's diverse and #ownvoices). #MSWL
Abdul Ali @abdulali_@bookgurufelice, I notice you didn't list a wishlist for nonfiction book projects on your site. Does this mean you're only interested in novels?
“In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles: Period pieces with women breaking into lively professions (think TV or comedy a la I Love Lucy) and Women in S.T.E.M.” @readbystephanie psliterary.com/submissions/ #MSWL
So far 2020 query numbers are higher than they’ve ever been. Thank you authors for giving me a chance to review your book. Seeking suspense, thriller, mystery, women’s, upmarket & literary fiction. #MSWL
One of the hardest thing about querying agents is knowing what’s actually a fit for their lists... so I’m excited to share my #MSWL with everyone! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mega… take a look to see my specific interests and fav reads!
I am actively digging through my inbox looking for: #MSWL
▪️PB/MG NF about science or history topics
▪️Adult mystery/suspense in the vein of Oyinkan Braithwaite, Steph Cha, Alex North, Tana French
▪️Upmarket family stories
▪️Horror: Psychological! Ghosts!
For #adult, I’m particularly hungry for commercial #WF. Give me a strong hook & upmarket writing. I’m open to MANY different genres here, but my sweet spot are stories that deal with family and/or long held secrets #MSWL
Lauren is open to queries! @laurenspieller@Gabino_Iglesias Upmarket, smart, high stakes that go beyond “don’t die.” Get Out, Parasite are good movie comps, Lauren Beukes is a good book comp even though I know she’s not strictly horror, also Anita Ahlborn and Joe Hill. Honestly I just want something that grabs me and has something to SAY
#mswl: the horror & twisted spec fic I want to see in 2020
“I’d love to read some vibrant, Broadway/West End musical fiction. Give me glamour and behind-the-scenes action. Interesting, dramatic, but contemporary and upmarket.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
You can see all of our lists on the website: bookendsliterary.com/submissions/ In particular I'm looking for commercial, upmarket & literary fiction, women's fiction, speculative fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller.... #MSWL
Not going to lie. I’m having #PitchWars FOMO. In case you’re an author feeling the same I’m here to remind you that I’m open to queries. Speculative fiction, women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & more #mswl bookendsliterary.com/submissions/
