Jaime Collins @JaimeLoren · Jun 28

Writers! We are looking for crime and thrillers (with a unique twist--the darker the better!), historical fiction (not romance at this stage), narrative non-fiction and diverse voices!

Whitley Abell | is supposed to be on HIATUS @whitleyabell

@MandyHubbard Me too! Contemp protags on the Ace spectrum are def high on my MSWL (so Grey-Ace and Demisexual too)

Ace rep in contemporary* YA is still at the top of the #MSWL. When it comes to demi-/grey-/ace/aro, pretty much all I see in my inbox is still SF/F.

*also realistic genres (historical, mystery, etc) and magical realism

#MSWL an incredibly lush, romantic YA fantasy; novels with "evil boyfriends" (think Damon Salvatore); romantic comedies; millennial focused non-fiction, ripped from the headlines historicals

oh well look at that it's time for my periodic and unprompted scream into the twitterverse that what i really want more than anything is some GREAT HISTORICAL FICTION STARRING REAL WOMEN WHO MIGHT NOT BE AS WIDELY-REMEMBERED AS THEY SHOULD! #MSWL

And, as always, #MSWL utterly gripping literary or upmarket commercial adult fiction - be in speculative or historical or contemporary - with strong stories rooted in secrets.

Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · Jun 26

Also #MSWL High-concept YA contemporary or historical with easily digested strong hooks (light or dark). Everything from HEIST SOCIETY to SAVE THE DATE to WE WERE LIARS...

Justin Wells @Justin_941 · Jun 22

Very specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl

Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!

Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl
