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!
Middle grade fantasy with a strong voice and smart humour like THE VOYAGE TO MAGICAL NORTH by Claire Fayers – Gemma Cooper
I’d love to see YA fantasy with high political stakes and a smart, courageous protagonist (like Kestrel in THE WINNER’S CURSE) or a YA contemporary with a demonstrably strong feminist main character. And I’m always looking for MG contemporary, historical, or fantasy that feels timeless and emotionally powerful – Molly Ker Hawn
I’m feeling something upmarket historical right now, like ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE or THE BOOK THIEF – Heather Flaherty
I would like to see epic family dramas full of textured characters and dense plotting. Ideally, they would grapple with issues like immigration, otherness, and economic strife but in a way that presents these themes with a broad range of emotion – John Bowers
