It’s time again for the Monthly Wishlist! Here’s the 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!
Right now I’m feeling dark dark dark, twisted, magical, mystical, eerie, scary, wonderful, heart fluttery – pull me somewhere that both freaks me out and makes me want to stay – Heather Flaherty
Send me your literary fantasy-horror in the vein of Peadar O’Guilin’s THE CALL — exquisitely written, exquisitely tense – Molly Ker Hawn
My decorations are up, and my desk is overloaded with tinsel – yes, Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I embrace it in a big way! So send me your feel good festive YA or wintery MG adventure – Gemma Cooper**
High concept, emotional MG or YA set in this world, with a fantastic/magical realism element. Think David Levithan’s EVERYDAY or BEFORE I FALL by Lauren Oliver. Definitely want romance (for YA), but other elements too: this could be a friendship or sibling story, or mother-daughter relationships, etc. – Susan Hawk
Send me your ghosts & goblins, your witches & werewolves, your bogeymen, and—yes—even your vampires. Scare me. – Brooks Sherman**
I am hungry for edgy coming-of-age novels, women’s fiction with a great hook, and female-driven, smart suspense that is creepy and atmospheric—especially written by and featuring a marginalized person. – Beth Phelan**
**Gemma, Brooks and Beth are currently closed to queries, but if you have something that matches their wishlists, please send and add #TBAwishlist to your subject header.
