Stay tuned tomorrow for full details, but get your one line pitches polished up!!! We've got another awesome Mystery Agent Contest coming your way tomorrow!!!

Here's what our agent is looking for :)

YA and MG: southern gothic, historical fiction, magical realism, science fiction, supernatural/ paranormal, ghost stories, humor, fantasy, thriller/ suspense, edgy YA, friendship MG


  1. All right! I've ago a great line to pitch! Looking forward to tomorrow.

  2. Really curious what defines "southern gothic" or to see a list of titles that fit in that category.

  3. K. Turley, "Southern gothic" refers to darker fiction set in the South. There are usually supernatural (or otherwise unusual) elements to the plot, but it usually also explores a Southern family or community and the various issues involved in them. Though sadly, I can't think of any titles off the top of my head...

    Hope that helps somewhat!

  4. Great description of "southern gothic," Becky! I keep thinking of Fallen by Lauren Kate. It's set in Georgia at a crumbly, ancient boarding school that happens to have a graveyard and creeping vines and fallen angels.
