TBA Monthly Wishlist — July 2015

It’s time again for the Monthly Wishlist!  Here’s the ONE project that the TBA agents would love to see in their submission inbox. If you have something that fits with the below, please check out our submission guidelines and send it over. We can’t wait to read!

Historical fiction set during a momentous time or centered around the secret love affair of a historical figure. – Louise Fury

High concept women’s fiction with lots of plot, emotion and heart, like THE LIFE LIST by Lori Nelson Spielman. – Jenny Bent

I love MG and YA books that have a story within a story — be that a book, play or something else! – Susan Hawk

I would love to work on a speculative novel or thriller with supernatural elements, either YA or adult. Think THE ROOK by Daniel O’Malley, THE MAGICIANS by Lev Grossman, or HALF-RESURRECTION BLUES by Daniel Jose Older. I want to believe in (and be terrified by) magic! – Brooks Sherman

Big, gorgeous YA fantasy with Asian settings, characters, world. – Beth Phelan

Animals and anthropomorphic characters—I love stories with either animals as the main character, or with a close bond with a child. Examples: CHARLOTTE’S WEB, A DOG CALLED HOMELESS, THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN. Or what about historical fiction seen through the eyes of an animal—major events in history with a dog or cat or pig or…etc. narrator? – Gemma Cooper

A domestic suspense novel with a really strong sense of place like MO Walsh’s MY SUNSHINE AWAY – Victoria Lowes
