Happy #MSWL day! I’m on the hunt for a rare gem of a historical or upmarket Caribbean story/voice steeped in island culture with an immersive setting.

"Upmarket fiction I loved (from the past year or two): LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY, I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR YOU, NOTES ON AN EXECUTION, THE GLASS HOTEL, and MARRYING THE KETCHUPS.”

Upmarket Fiction that has a dark and/or speculative edge,
bookclub fiction that doesn't center white women,
LGBTQ+ history,
speculative fiction about the Tsunami spirits in Ishinomaki, focusing on collective healing (the ghost taxis especially usatoday.com/story/news/wor…)

2/3 My #MSWL for pitches is: adult work only in fantasy (all categories), mystery, thriller, romance, women’s fiction, upmarket, and maybe even a thriller. My dream acquisition would have been The Night Circus. I like work that has hints of magic and a bit of darkness.

Mysteries and thrillers are a category I want to move into (particularly in YA) but I am more drawn to character driven stories than one that focus on a huge plot twist. This will likely be more commercial or upmarket fiction than strict genre mysteries. #MSWL

I would also love to see more Upmarket and Commercial/Women’s fiction (think compulsive book club fiction). I know this can be a broad category, but I am particularly drawn to books that play with power structures, friendship dynamics and odd familial structures. #MSWL

I’ve been feeling survival horror in the vein of ALL THE WHITE SPACES. Give me isolation, hauntings, nature vs humanity, cli-fi, upmarket. Think EVENT HORIZON without the sci-fi. IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS is another good one. Also, horror from marginalized voices: #mswl

I'm open to books set mostly in the real world, but that have speculative elements that help tell stories in interesting ways. I'm also looking for some upmarket fiction and short stories! Similar themes/ideas as in Lit Fic 6/10

Would love to see upmarket novels about the complex lives of women told through a great narrative voice like in The Push by Ashley Audrain or The Mothers by Brit Bennett #mswl

Contemporary romance! I'm looking for two different things here: first is complex, emotional, upmarket contemporary—think Kate Clayborn or Lucy Parker. Love caretakers for this, especially if they’re kind of grumpy/seem uncaring on the outside. #mswl

If you are looking to submit your manuscript in 2023, do consider sending it my way! I'm looking for new clients writing literary, upmarket, and bookclub fiction - historical and contemporary - as well as select narrative non-fiction 📚 #MSWishlist #MSWL madeleinemilburn.co.uk/agents/olivia-…

And finally: I'd love a timely upmarket thriller with a ripped from the headlines hook and killer characters. Think ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL or PEOPLE LIKE HER.

Upmarket women's fiction that explores issues we tend to minimize or ignore as a society. #MSWL

Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL

I suppose it’s that time again. A new #MSWL thread for the new year! 🤞🏻 pic.twitter.com/wIlpiwFUSl

Let’s start with literary fiction, because that’s what I’m the most eager to read as 2023 begins. Contemporary voices, unusual storytelling structures, complicated platonic and romantic relationships, upmarket genre novels. I want beautiful prose with a splashy concept. #MSWL
