๐Ÿ“š YA: You'll steal my heart with unique magic systems. Creepy carnivals. Creepy abandoned buildings. New twists on the familiar.

And yes, I'll selectively be looking at queer rom-coms still (because reasons)!

๐Ÿ“š YA: I'm focusing more on genre fiction โ€” namely fantasy and horror with an emphasis on works by authors from marginalized communities. I still have a soft spot for reimaginings (like...Count of Monte Cristo. Or if someone were to update Christopher Pike's The Midnight Club...)

Other specifics: friendship stories (or friendship breakup stories) and stories that bridge the gap between MG and YA. #mswl

I look forward to reading your submissions!

I'm getting a lot of submissions in two categories lately, so maybe it's worth saying on here: I'm not looking to acquire more novels in verse at this moment, and my picture book list is quite limited. Right now, my #mswl is skewed toward mg and YA.

Just updated my #MSWL for anyone who wants to take a gander. Still looking for the next fantasy or sci-fi MS that pushes my buttons. I like a little darkness, a harrowing adventure. Also always looking for NF in a bunch of categories.

Going into 2024, I would love to acquire clean (light romance/no or minimal cursing) YA fiction of any genre except fantasy. I am also seeking clean adult commerical romance/romcoms and compelling book club fiction. #MSWL #authorcommunity #amquerying

...YA, to start! Across genres, joyful, diverse, heartfelt YA novels with compelling plots and characters stood out to me last year, and I would love more on my list! Think ELATSOE, YEAR OF THE REAPER, YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN, LITTLE THIEVES, THE GHOSTS OF ROSE HILL #MSWL

I updated my #MSWL page for the first time in... a decade? And I'm looking forward to reading some great submissions in 2024.

Agents, among other things, I'd love to find a feel-good underdog sports story to weep over and/or edit. Hit me up! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/katherine-harrison/
