Manuscript WishList 9/26
A compilation of Manuscript Wishlist #MSWL from Twitter. Remember do not use the #MSWL hashtag unless you are an agent or editor. Writers take heed.
Random wishlist item: a book set on a vineyard. #mswl
LORE but a novel. #MSWL
P.S. Literary Agency
"Literary mysteries, suspense, thrillers with female lead i.e. DARK PLACES, YOU WILL KNOW ME, THE FEVER, THE POWER” @carlywatters #MSWL http://psliterary.com/submissions/
And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please
#MSWL Fantasy and historical fiction about female characters engaging in traditionally-feminine pastimes. Give me seamstresses breaking curses, wetnurses playing politics, noblewomen arranging marriages for their kids
In #YA and #Adult I'd love to see magical realism (a recent fave is All The Birds in the Sky) as well as historical fantasy that throws me into an unexpected time. I have a weakness for anything Victorian or Jane Austen. Lastly: Assassins. Anything with assassins #MSWL
Ok new #MSWL: nonfiction sexuality book for chronically single people, on the specific hurdles they face around sexuality (or lack thereof) #editor #amwriting #writerslife
A YA or MG twist-y game in the vein of CARAVAL, please! #MSWL
#mswl Zorro retelling, but female. She can be known as Zorra, or she's known as Zorro and the world has no idea she's actually female. I don't care. I am in need of a Zorro story, but female 🔥⚔️🦊
I would love to see some thriller / psych suspense / domestic suspense projects that DON'T feature a damaged / alcoholic / unreliable female narrator. Where's my ordinary woman who happens to get swept up in something extraordinary? #mswl
Quressa Robinson (she/her/queen)
For the love of my dark, evil, magical heart, please send me witch books--bitchy witches, selfish witches, selfless witches, kind witches, amoral witches, angry witches. ALL THE WITCHES!!! #MSWL
#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.
