James McGowan @jamerrsonHey #AmQuerying #AmWriting Twitter! The chicken is out of the bag: I’m now open to queries and building my own list. You can go here to submit: QueryMe.Online/jmcgowan. (Also a thread on some things I’m looking for) pic.twitter.com/oFcKZfnTIO
#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.
I'm #MSWL-ing for re-tellings (#adult or #YA) of myths, folktales, or fairytales. Always. Bring it. More. Had the chance to look at #queries and pages for an @OpAwesome6 #passorpages, and had lots to say: bit.ly/2QisRya. I encourage you all to think through m'#querytip!
Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL
Here is Moe Ferrara capping off our Instagram run for #MSWLDay:
At the top of Moe’s #MSWL is all things LGBTQ+-related in MG, YA, and Adult. Her wants are leaniing a bit more on the… instagram.com/p/BoM-UxYHru1/…
#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn
#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanRe: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL twitter.com/dreamoforgonon…
WELL I WANT THIS TOO OBVIOUSLY. Especially if it's an adult book. #MSWL
#MSWL UK Authors. Looking for Adult fiction: literary novel or short story collection. Mainly interested in writers from diverse & marginalised groups.
Disclosure: I'm a young agent new to the field. I have a strong mentor with years of experience so you'll be very supported 😊
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPixIf you have received rejections lately, you absolutely should keep querying. But if this thread made you think "Well there was that one scene..." or "well I did decide to trim that to be like Writer McFamousDude..." GO FIX IT FIRST. Send me something mindblowing. You CAN do this.
And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please.
Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabeI *need* a YA adaptation of this (times a billion).
YES except also as adult fantasy about the rash decisions you made as an impetuous youth & an impetuous witch but now you're falling in love in your grumpy 30s over a magical contract you didn't think though w/lots of resigned sighs & awkward eye contact & netflix #mswl
