TBA Monthly Wishlist - June 2017

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

Adult fiction with a wide, diverse cast of millennial people of color; unflinching, honest, with smart, dark humor and a powerful voice - Beth Phelan

Dark, demented, crumbling, atmospheric, twisted YA fantasy - where the underdog thrives. Think SIX OF CROWS - Heather Flaherty

MG fiction that delves into thorny family relationships with thoughtfulness and authenticity; contemporary and 20th-century historical YA exploring the experience of the South Asian diaspora; and anything funny enough to make me forget for a few minutes what a mess the world is in right now - Molly Ker Hawn

I’d love to find a new thriller, suspense or crime novel. Two books I have recently fallen in love with are THE FINAL GIRLS and SOMETIMES I LIE. I’d also like to find an issue-led drama with an incredible voice and characters that really draw us in - Sarah Manning

I’d love a really dark, twisty suspense novel, particularly one with a female narrator - Victoria Cappello

TBA Monthly Wishlist - May 2017

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
