My Manuscript Wish List

Hey there!

For fiction, I’m looking for manuscripts with an edge: spooky MG, ghost stories and creepy narratives that have a strong humor slant. I’d love an adult or MG dealing with the Spiritualist movement: Ouija, table tipping, spirit cabinets.

I’m adding more romance to my list! Send me your brooding males, your anti-heroes, and your heroines that know a good thing when they see it.

I love quirky nonfiction and humor for all age groups.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be emailed to

[Red Sofa Literary] highly encourages everyone to send an email and/or query letter initially, before attempting to send a full book proposal or sample chapters. If there is an interest, we will directly contact the author. Once these materials are received, there is usually response time of 4-6 weeks, sometimes sooner.

If querying via email, please only put the contents of your query IN the email. We will not open attachments unless they have been requested in advance.

Guidelines & Details


As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s educational sister company, we are now offering ten-minute e-meetings with a select group of our agents and editors to discuss your work, what you can do better–and how to maximize your chances of success in the submissions process. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our step-by-step guide to booking your meeting, a list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process.

Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below after clicking “Set Time Zone.”
