dongwon @dongwonI love the idea of #MSWL day but I'm rarely looking for a very specific concept or type of book. I just want the book to be yours and yours alone. To be so specific you can see the whole world in its details. That said, here are a few things that are very top of mind for me:
Contemporary horror/thriller focused on the experiences of POCs. We live harrowing lives and ones that see the world from a different angle. Film/tv has done a great job of catching up to representing those experiences. I want more of it in books. #MSWL
Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!
Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history
Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1I'm always open to thriller, espec. psychological and domestic, though political is sometimes a tough sell for me. I like espionage if it's new and fresh, and with a female lead or co-lead. #MSWL
Think more Killing Eve/Alias, less Bourne Identity, for me in terms of globe-trotting thriller. #MSWL
#MSWL And of course, psychological thrillers, suspense, anything with twists and turns that keep me guessing, like THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, GRIST MILL ROAD, LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE, and BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. 📚 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/rach…
Updated #MSWL on m'blog (bit.ly/2p3a5iO), but eager for a few things (beyond anything delightful):
*YA: literary sci-fi; anything science fantasy-esque
*thriller/crime: female-driven literary; intellectual puzzles/characters
*characters w/ intellectual, emotional gifts
Carlisle Webber @carliebeth#MSWL day! To start I’m on the lookout for high-concept MG, YA, and adult fiction. More on what that means here: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-conc…
Within that realm, I’m looking for pop fiction, contemporary, suspense, mystery, thriller, horror, women’s fiction #mswl
Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...
Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.
I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl
Time to share my #MSWL! For SFF: Black Mirror-esque thrillers that imagine the dark and twisted places tech could take us. My fave eps were "Nosedive" and "Men Against Fire." Also want fantasies built on myths and legends, especially from diverse cultures.
3. #MSWL mysteries! thrillers! 1st book I sold was a mystery. Before Sookie Stackhouse I was selling mysteries for @realcharlaine & in an alternate universe the early mysteries I sold would have taken off more than the early sf/f I sold & I'd be a hotshot mystery agent
