Upmarket, structurally interesting, sweeping love stories of all kinds. I’d love a LGBTQ story in the vein of ONE DAY/THE VERSIONS OF US. Something like a more commercial PAYING GUESTS (which I loved, but I'm not interested in ton of capital L literary fiction right now). #mswl
For #MSWL, I'm tweeting oddly specific examples of things that I'd be into, in genres in which I'm definitely looking for more projects.
YA fiction & nonfiction (all kinds)
MG fiction & NF (all kinds)
SF/F (especially upmarket/literary)
I will not be able to spend a lot of time in #PitMad, but I am open to queries and hungry. #MSWL: mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary adult fiction. Query me here: querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…
I am looking for upmarket or literary speculative fiction like STATION ELEVEN, but I'm not right for straight fantasy or SFF. #MSWL So yes, I might be right for this, but I would only know if I read the query.
While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.
If pumpkin spice lattes are back, autumn must be right around the corner, which means I'm jumping on the spooky reads bandwagon. Send me your upmarket, creepy stories: witches, ghosts, other things that go bump in the night. How about a gothic romance, you say? Yes! #mswl
I desperately need upmarket, literary or women's fiction that takes a close look at the opioid epidemic. Maybe a person dealing with a child, spouse, or other who is addicted? Or a family saga ala Bull Mountain #MSWL
"Multi POV, time slip or dual past/present narrative structure women’s fiction, historical, domestic suspense, or upmarket like THE ALICE NETWORK, THE SUBWAY GIRLS." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl

As a true crime fan, I always wonder about the family of a patriarch convicted of murder—especially in a case where the truth of what happened is unclear and the family stands behind him despite their secret doubts. I want the upmarket women’s fiction version of this story #MSWL
I'm also looking for upmarket YA Fantasy. I'm a sucker for thoughtful and elegant prose, and deep (not wide) worldbuilding that feels effortless despite it's intricacies. Contemp fantasy, second world fantasy, whatever--it's all great, as long as it sweeps me away. #mswl
And, as always, #MSWL utterly gripping literary or upmarket commercial adult fiction - be in speculative or historical or contemporary - with strong stories rooted in secrets.
