TBA Monthly Wishlist – October 2015


It’s time again for the Monthly Wishlist!  Here’s the ONE project that each TBA agent 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!
A YA take on a biblical heroine, like a teen version of THE RED TENT – Louise Fury
I’m really looking for YA right now and am open to anything but dystopian and angels. Send me your swoony romance, your teen X-Files, your epic fantasy, your re-invented Buffy, your ghosts and anything you can comp to a movie starring Christian Slater – Gemma Cooper
I’d love to see a YA spin on a Maeve Binchy-type story – Molly Ker Hawn
MG or YA fiction with an illustrative element!  Think: TIMMY FAILURE, THE STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA, the FRANK EINSTEIN books, WINGER, and THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN – Susan Hawk
Epic-feeling YA contemporary that takes place over a short period of time with lots of humor and tenderness and heart. A weekend getaway, up-all-night sleepover, sit-in protest, overnight bus trip, tornado warning, lockdown or quarantine, sneak-out adventure, Ferris Bueller-esque day off — that can change your life. I love bittersweet – Beth Phelan
A middle grade or young adult ghost story or horror. Could be funny (think Ghostbusters) or gothic (think LOCKWOOD & CO.) – Brooks Sherman
YA Horror – cringing, dark, bloody twisted, and even lovely. Think American McGee’s Alice Madness ReturnsHeather Flaherty
An atmospheric mystery with a strong sense of place and series potential alá Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series – Victoria Lowes
