TBA Monthly Wishlist – September 2016

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!


Dreaming about some cool non-fiction! All types. Extra points if it has a pop-culture focus or a unique format – Louise Fury**

A light and fun YA romance that still has a good one line hook. I want to read about first love and romance; lots of kisses an added bonus. Think LOVE & GELATO, or LOVE, LIES & LEMON PIES – Gemma Cooper**

YA Contemporary complicated family drama, with totally captivating voices. Think Jandy Nelson’s I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN – Heather Flaherty 

I’m particularly interested in MG and YA projects that reflect the experience of the South Asian diaspora (#ownvoices alert!) – Molly Ker Hawn

I’m dying for a literary novel set during the thirteen-day span of the Cuban Missile Crisis in small town USA – Victoria Capello 

I’m still very interested in fantasy novels (for any age) with epic and/or intricate world-building. Think THE BOOK OF THREE by Lloyd Alexander, THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Adieh, the LOCKWOOD & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud, JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL by Susanna Clarke, SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo, or THE MAGICIANS by Lev Grossman – Brooks Sherman**

**Louise, Gemma and Brooks are currently closed to queries, but if you have something that matches this wishlist, please send and add #TBAwishlist to your subject header
