For my current #MSWL click on the picture to see all the details. You can also always find my most recent manuscript wishlist on the Triada US website.
Just putting this out there. I’d love to take on a literary YA author this year. Think @JasonReynolds83 meets @nina_lacour , or something totally different! Just as long the story is beautiful and fresh and MATTERS. #mswl
I'm also looking for unique MG and YA - horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary (and YA thrillers). Your voice and premise need to stand out. I want UNIQUE. Send query and 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #amquerying #WritingCommunity
Hello! I'm now open to queries again! My #mswl is compelling #WF, out of the box #romance, #contemporaryYA, #YARom, and Fun #MG. I want FRESH stories so please send me your stuff, esp from marginalized creators!
Agents! I am both in a buying mood AND doing a better job in 2020 about responding to submissions quickly. Send me your YA - esp. stuff featuring characters from marginalized backgrounds, interesting formats, high-concept contemporary. #MSWL
Is there a YA rom-com out there where the protagonist leaves behind hidden letters for the love interest to find? Possibly hidden among some books? If not, I'd love to see it!
This #mswl brought to you by Romance Is A Bonus Book (Thanks for the recommendation @kurestinarmada)!
Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwellThe change of season has me hankering for a dark, twisty YA thriller or a chilling, atmospheric horror! Send me your goodies, writers! #MSWL #querytip #amquerying
Today’s work from home movies: When Harry Met Sally, What Women Want, Wet Hot American Summer, The Wedding Date
To relate it to my #MSWL, I don’t care what men want, but I do care about summer camp (counselors & their shenanigans-Upper YA/Adult) & rom-coms like TWD and WHMS (A)
Some random/ very specific things:
1. A cheerleading book (Gay BRING IT ON)!
2. Gay BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM!
3. A story with a Type 1 Diabetic protagonist!
4. Stories like WEATHERING WITH YOU where climate/ weather is the antagonist!
Speculative fiction and with a lightly dystopian angle like WILDER GIRLS and WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE. Give me something so weird here it's impossible to fit in one category. #MSWL
Fantasy will always me my 💜. But I'm especially on the lookout for contemporary fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal right now. Examples: A BLADE SO BLACK, THE DEVOURING GRAY, and CEMETERY BOYS. #MSWL
Dark fantasy, gothic fantasy, horror-fantasy blends, and stories with subversive religious themes. Think SERPENT & DOVE, WICKED SAINTS, and THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING. #MSWL
Historical novels both fantasy and realistic—especially overlooked or underrepresented stories in history (though I'm pickier when it comes to 20th century history). Examples of what I'm looking for: DREAD NATION and BLOOD COUNTESS! #MSWL
Finally updated my #MSWL for 2020! Who's ready for a thread?
I'm still only acquiring YA at this time, but I acquire all genres, so if your project isn't here please TRY ME ANYWAY! These are just some specific things I'm on the lookout for @PageStreetKids!
#MSWL Really in the mood for voicey, gritty contemporary YA. Give me messy characters struggling to hold it all together while dealing with difficult situations/emotions. I love bittersweet stories that hurt & also make me smile. (A plus if it’s LGBTQIA.) Please send them to me!
