We accept unagented manuscripts, but, hey, we love agents too. Send us your manuscript whenever it’s ready; we’re not rushing you (but we’ll be excited to see it when it comes!).
Check out a few of our #Pitmad and #DVPit authors, and their amazing books!
Here’s our current #MSWL:
- Sue: I'm looking for mysteries set in exotic locations, like Camilla Trinchieri's The Bitter Taste of Murder or Tasha Alexander's The Dark Heart of Florence. Oh, and assassins.
- Helga: A psychological thriller that makes me want to delete all my social media accounts.
- Meredith: I'm in the mood for violence. Let's have some swashbuckling adventures with swords, knives, fists, et al. I don't care if it's sci-fi, fantasy, western or a combo. I want fights.
- Gabe: I'm looking for something hard sci-fi, like The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu or Manifold: Time by Stephan Baxter.
- Bridget: I’d love to read a thriller where you’re not sure if you can trust your main character. Something like Gone Girl or The Woman in the Window.
- Maryann: Being a huge Stephen King fan (and who isn’t?), I’m looking for that next horror writer that can scare the daylights out of me but also give me a well-constructed plot, characters that I can relate to, and a book that I will want to revisit year after year.
- Josh: I'd love to see some realistic YA coming of age, things like Perks of Being a Wallflower or Looking for Alaska.
- Laura: I'm looking for YA horror set in a sci-fi or fantasy world, or a contemporary one for our list.
And of course, if you have genre fiction that is not captured by the wishlist above, we’ll read it too.
See y’all on Twitter, September 2nd.
