Women

In mystery, again, I love historicals! Especially those with strong women who kick ass and take names. Think Deanna Raybourn and Sherry Thomas.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.

here is my current #mswl:
YA romance - all genres
single title romance - all genres (see yesterday's tweets for what "single title" means)
category/series romance - contemp or historical
womens fiction with romance
NA romance - contemp or sci-fi
LGBTQ romance in any of the above

I say this a lot, but this is a HUGE #mswl item: teamrock.com/feature/2018-0…

#mswl: give me a young woman in the 90s trying to make it in the #metal industry. I want to learn about her triumphs and obstacle. The sexist bullish!t women put up with and how they proved that they can not only be on the metal stage, but they can own it.

Just read about a veteran-owned adventure business. Extreme sports, extreme excursion, extreme experience for PTSD overcomers. Now, include that in a wonderful #Romance or #WF. I'd like that! #MSWL

I’ve been listening to THE GREATEST SHOWMAN album all night—it’s so good! Now I’m craving some #circus themed submissions in my inbox right w/ a hint of #magicalrealism (& by circus, I don't mean clowns!) #A #WF #YA #MG #MR #MSWL

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · 5d

I want submissions with strong women/girls, but strong doesn't necessarily mean "kickass" all the time. There are so many ways we show our strength--whether it be physical or mental. #MSWL

Jessica Watterson @JessWatterson · Feb 10

I've reopened to queries. My biggest #mswl's are #ownvoices AND #diverse light contemporary women's fiction and fresh romance.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Feb 9

After a bit of brainstorming with @maria_ribas, I'd love to see some "women behaving badly" fiction. Give me your Miranda Priestly, your Cersei Lannister, your Bellatrix Lestrange. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Feb 7

#MSWL Send me a #mglit or #YAlit story that reclaims women's/girls' voices in history. Not necessarily a rewrite/historical, although those are fine, too. Might be a side story to a larger plot.

Danielle Bukowski @dani_bukie · Feb 7

I updated my #MSWL and I've already gotten stronger queries! Thanks writers, looking forward to more -- manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/dani… #amquerying

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Jan 30

#MSWL Still looking for fiction projects that shed light on a forgotten, yet significant, person or event in history. Can be #WF, #A, #MG, OR #YA

Dying for a contemporary OR TO REALLY RAISE THE STAKES, historical (a la Madmen), workplace-set manuscript - women's fiction, romance, bookclub, satire, dramedy, or young adult (tell me you dont remember that crush from your first job!) #mswl

Three Rooms Press @threeroomspress · Jan 17

We are very interested in books about strong women who changed the world, like Beate Sirota Gordon. Proud to have published her biography, LAST BOAT TO YOKAHAMA amazon.com/Last-Boat-Yoko… #feminism #strongwomen #womenleaders #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jan 10

I'd like to see a novel that tackles the issue of #autism and police interaction, particularly for a POC on the spectrum, as discussed in this article by @hollyrpeete: huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-a… #autismmom #MSWL #YA #WF

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Jan 8

Random #mswl: Quirky romance or WF that shows what happens AFTER adorable tiny house has been purchased and you actually have to live in it.

Whitley Abell @whitleyabell · Jan 7

Umm, I just want all the #WF in this vein, pls! #MSWL

Half Magic - Three women use their newly formed sisterhood to fight against sexism, bad relationships and low self-esteem.
