I started watching The Rise of Phoenixes last night and I'm in love, which means I now want a intricate political fantasy with siblings vying for dominace, revenge, false smiles, and a love burdened by past decisions. #mswl
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, cont., & historical. MG: SFF, adventure, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
I love new, different worlds in fantasy or sci-fi. Magic is cool. Science is sweet. Aliens? Not so much. But, you could surprise me. What about witches? I'm still looking for a witch story. #MG #YA #A #MSWL
Where are all the adult fantasy manuscripts hiding? Not in my box. 🥺 I would really love to see them, though. Bonus if it's dark fantasy, but I love all kinds of fantasy. Send query and 1st five pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL
I also happen to have a totally empty #query inbox as of 1.00am EST, and--two months into reading #manuscripts--still am on the hunt for a good thriller, women's fiction, and adult #fantasy and #scifi. I love good espionage, puzzles, and coding, & excellent female heroes. #MSWL
A type of primary relationship I’d love to see more in #SFF: comrades-in-arms—not only warrior/soldier siblings-in-battle, but also people fighting for common causes in politics, in the workplace, in civil society, &c. who believe viscerally in their purpose & in each other #MSWL
Project Savior. I'm a huge fan of SEVENEVES by Neal Stephenson, & I'd love a powerful, weighty fantasy along the same lines. Part 1) Humanity in peril, danger, despair, rushed plans, underground cryo chambers Part 2) Waking up to & surviving a new reality millennium later #MSWL
Variety @VarietyNetflix landed the rights after a heated bidding war that attracted many of the major studios bit.ly/2CCkkDe
A friendly reminder that if you have a John Henry but SFF, or any other SFF take on American folklore, feel free to drop me a line. #MSWL
Still on the hunt for a #YA or adult historical, whether it's straight #historical, #fantasy, or has other speculative elements. Love a good romance subplot. Been craving Ice Age and early human stories as far as ancient history goes as well. #MSWL
James McGowan @jamerrsonI just finished The Broken Earth trilogy by @nkjemisin and I have never read a better fantasy. Deserving of every last Hugo. pic.twitter.com/39JRRC3tsf
#MSWL— send BookEnds fantasy agents something as amazing as this, please
Julia Ember @jules_chronicleThis beautiful, magical, steampunk Labyrinthian lesbian wedding is the f/f fantasy aesthetic we all deserve 😭😭😭😍🌈

#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.
Sarah Guan @Sarah_GuanAfter Trump’s bizarre statement about exchanging love letters w/ Kim Jong Un, I can’t help thinking it‘d be an interesting SFF novel idea: 2 unstable dictators w/ huge egos inherit world-ending arsenals & a fraught standoff, begin a diplomatic correspondence, & fall in love
Ditto for my #MSWL -- make it twisty!

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
Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan#MSWL: feminist #SFF
I don’t mean “strong heroine succeeds in a sexist society.” That exists, and much of it isn’t feminist in a way that reflects the intellectual underpinnings of the concept.
I want “strong heroines work together—intersectionally—to dismantle the patriarchy.”
Given today's events, refreshing this #MSWL. Are you writing #SFF about misogynists getting their comeuppance and women tearing down the patriarchy with their bare hands? Tell your agent to send it to me.
