Mishma @chasingfaesi know everyone loves dark fantasy, but i miss the era of fun ya fantasy books. Give me boarding school, boy problems, mean girls. Give me a hex hall, a vampire academy, and the meg cabot brand of fantasy books
Okay here for this. Fake dating but make it witches; or "there's only one bed" during our vampire friends' road trip! #MSWL
Here is my one #mswl request, and it is very precise: I want YA witches or vampires whose magic is tied up in northern California nature, and if it embodies Bobbie Gentry'e Ode to Billie Joe, send it harder. Here is my submission info: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…
#MSWL (agented only) - YA and adult - Gothic horror or fantasy, would love a fantasy that reads like a fun romp (like This Vicious Grace), vampires, witches, morally gray characters
Since I'm open to queries again:
MUST HAVE: Adult romance only. NO YA. Fantasy or sci-fi sub-genre ONLY.
Prefer: High heat level
1. Vampires or witches (still looking for something different)
2. mystery & humor even if dark
3. Bridgerton w/PR element
4. Surprise me
For YA, I'm more turning to Historical, Contemporary, and Contemporary Romance. Super selective on Fantasy and Paranormal right now, though would still love to see concepts on witches or ghosts (and vamps if unique!)
#querytip #amquerying #writingcommunity
My YA romantasy caveat is that the romance must be between humans. I am not the right fit for fae or elves or orcs or mermaids or aliens or robots.
(However, things that were once human are OK: vampires, werewolves, ghosts). #mswl
(hiatus) @StorySorceryI just learned about Boston marriages where wealthy 19th century women "married" each other by moving in together to keep their inherited or hard-earned money to themselves and some of these "marriages" turned into actual romantic relationships. And now I'm obsessed.
#MSWL but witches/vampires/werewolves/etc.
Britt Siess @BrittSiessY'all think I'm joking about the werewolves and vampires. I AM NOT!
I want them to be wearing all leather. Tall boots. Give me a death dealer in a catsuit. A lead singer in a long leather coat. I mean it people!
Here's an #MSWL for you (a thread)
I want a super self indulgent vampire romance. Take me back to the early 2000s. Very Queen of the Damned/Underworld movie vibes. Either prose of graphic novel. I want action and mystery and maybe conspiracy too.
I also love paranormal elements like monsters and ghosts. And anything witchy! I love characters fighting their own "inner demons” too! I'm selectively open to elements like vampires.
Any atmospheric setting--e.g. an eerie seaside town might be cool!
Happy Spooky Season!! I always want spooky books (especially witchy stuff) but I'm really in the mood for vampires a la THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES. Definitely also time for a re-read. #MSWL
Kristine Swartz @KristineESwartzI'm feeling burnt out from summer/spring/all-of-2020, but want to go into fall with good energy so here are some of the things I'm looking for! #MSWL
Werewolf and vampire romances because I've been feeling super nostalgic lately and it's almost spooky season. #MSWL
#mswl for YA and MG, Halloween edition:
- small town murder
- houses, hotels, etc. with minds of their own
- curses of any kind
- demons, goblins, general spooky denizens
- fall festivals
- cozy MG, witchy or not
Agents, if you have any of the above, pls reach out!
#MSWL I'm a sucker for the fish out of water trope, especially if that fish is fresh to a new identity (freshly turned vampire, just found out hidden paranormal genes run in the family, etc). Add humor, and I'm all-in!
I love grounded, upmarket genre fiction. The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, The Rook, The Warehouse, Hench, Mexican Gothic, Station Eleven. When I reopen to queries on Sept 1, please send me books like this.

💫 Paranormal adult rom com. I’m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. I’m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. 🤩🧛🏻♀️🧙🏻♀️#MSWL
❦ @NINETIESRNBjust the concept of black vampires, yes pls! pic.twitter.com/UdeMKymThv
If you’ve got the book, I wanna read it!
I’ll also take any BIPOC fantasy creatures; vampires, werewolves, witches. . . I’m not picky. #MSWL
