Humor

Has everyone seen the trailer for *Mary Poppins Returns*? If not, it's an absolute must: bit.ly/2D7ARjL. I'd absolutely love a #novel that captures something of the vibrant imagination, color, humor, and family life portrayed here! #MSWL

It's still time for some #MSWL! Submission guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of YA & adult fiction!

Want to see, esp., v. smart romance, with smart humor (a la @rainbowrowell), and any literary or women's fiction featuring a healthy marriage.

Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!

First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.

I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.

It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

still on adult romance:
*sexy romantic comedy
*looking for a fresh take on tried-and-true tropes
*looking for laugh-out-loud humor
*looking for unique situations/conflicts and character relationships
*a fun story that also has emotional depth and resonance

Though I do like dark, I also like the opposite side of the spectrum. Sassy self-deprecating characters with humor are huge on my #MSWL. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging is gold.

I could spend ages thinking about #MSWL day so I will just be succinct: in fiction still looking mainly for smart SF/F with a fresh hook, especially by/about ppl from marginalized POVs. In nonfic: ppl w/established platforms in pop culture/media, humor, social politics, history.

Still looking for an Atlantis retelling! Would love it to have the humor and visual awesomeness of the movie (a steampunk alchemy Atlantis would be SO COOL) #MSWL

I've got this weird #MSWL for a humorous adult contemporary set in a therapy group for alien abduction frauds. No idea if it can be pulled off, but it's never left my head 😂

#MSWL
In YA and MG:
✔️ That quirky kid who cares so much about science and their "work" that pressures from social standings/social media never touch them. Humor's a must!

I want a #PB that makes me laugh out loud! A story with sharp, clever text and room for the art to add humor. I love an unexpected ending! #MSWL

#MSWL: Nonfiction books by the LGBTQ+ community, especially humor, history, culture, modern life. (Books that go beyond memoir!)

#MSWL: Nonfiction books that combine sexuality and humor, explore various sexual/relationship lifestyles (polyamory? coparenting?), and promote sex positivity and sexual health

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 12

Funny books, for readers of all ages. I’m not super into corny jokes/poop humor, but everything else? Bring it. #mswl

Connor Goldsmith @dreamoforgonon · Sep 5

In the wake of my first nonfiction deal announcement: I am looking to do a lot more nonfiction! Areas of interest: pop culture, media, humor, gender&sexuality, race&ethnicity, disability, sex work, biography, narrative history. #MSWL
