This pandemic and the general greyness of life rn (see my last tweet lol) has made me obsessed with reading ambitious epics with happy endings. Diana Gabaldon, Ken Follett, Deb Harkness...agents, pls send me your upmarket adult historical fantasy/romance! #mswl
Copps Literary Services @CoppsLiteraryHello, #amwriting Twitter! We're a new literary agency founded by @escopps & @CKEmmelhainz and we are officially... open! Check us out and please help us spread the word: coppsliterary.com #pubtips #amquerying pic.twitter.com/oWpUCmS4tO
On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart
Also on the adult end I would love to find commercial and upmarket friendship focused stories that really show the complexities of modern female friendship--good bad ugly and everything in between #mswl
Ella Kahn @elladkahnExcited to say I'll be open to submissions again from 4th Jan - 28th Feb 2021! Looking for upmarket women's fic, speculative fic, crime/thrillers, and YA. I'm in the mood for feel-good books, characters I can root for, emotionally driven stories, immersive settings & imagination! twitter.com/elladkahn/stat…
Happy New Year! Quick reminder that I'm reopening to submissions for *8 weeks only* from tomorrow morning (and I've actually updated my auto-response in advance this time!) Guidelines and my #MSWL on our website here: dkwlitagency.co.uk/submissions/ BRING ON 2021!
When our @PSLiterary query inbox opens again for the New Year please send me adult commercial/upmarket novels that are 70-85k. I would love some short and punchy novels. I don't want to read anything over 90k right now. My attention span (& the rest of the world) is SHORT. #mswl
I'm eager for book club fiction--contemporary & upmarket fiction & WF you might comp to Brit Bennett, Kiley Reid, Linda Holmes, Celeste Ng, or Sally Rooney. I'd love some fresh takes here, not only divorce & marital angst. I'm not a great fit for super literary stories. #MSWL
Generally, I'm looking for mostly Adult right now, and specifically from BIPOC and QBIPOC creators. Contemporary romance, paranormal romance, historical romance, contemporary/upmarket fiction, cozy mysteries, thriller (non crime), light horror, & light fantasy. #MSWL
Could you describe it as something like "upmarket fiction with a twist of weird"? That's my jam. Think NOTHING TO SEE HERE, CATHERINE HOUSE, THE AGE OF MIRACLES, THE RIVERMAN, THE STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL SORROWS OF AVA LAVENDER. Send me your weirds, please - MG, YA, adult!
When I reopen to queries in Jan., my wishlist is going to look different than it does now. In adult fic, I am really going to want to see upmarket fiction & book club fiction, literary fic, rom-coms, mystery, domestic & psychological thrillers, horror, & grounded speculative fic.
5/ About 31% of my list is SFF, but I am at an agency with a fantastic track record in literary fiction. I would love to read more upmarket, contemporary, and lit fic by emerging authors, especially (but not exclusively) living in Canada.
Ella Kahn @elladkahnAll of which to say - I may do a *short* open subs window in January, but I will assess my workload this side of Christmas and make a decision then. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I hope it helps to have transparency on the process twitter.com/elladkahn/stat…

I’m not closing to queries, but I am more behind than I’d like. Come January I’ll post my #MSWL mostly in mystery, suspense, upmarket, women’s & literary fiction. I also want select nonfiction.
