It's #MSWL day! Seeking high-concept romantic comedies, YAs with some mystery, WF not about grief or divorce, psych Thrillers with great twists. Love fierce women, humor, intelligent characters, banter/quick witted dialogue. Submit 3 chaps + synopsis to QueryMe.Online/OTLA
Speaking of nonfiction for young people, query me with:
--Deeply reported narrative of historical events
--Bios of underappreciated historical women or POC
--Self help from columnist of mainstream publication or popular blog
Chiming in to share my #MSWL: Adult Fiction (sry no YA etc.) #OwnVoices #RomComs #LGBT+ #SciFi #Fantasy #WomensFic #Romance
I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍
It's #MSWL day. Topping my list is commercial women’s fiction--particularly #ownvoices contemporaries; mother/daughter, sisters, or best friends stories for women in their 30s or 40s. Romance isn't necessary though I do love romance.
Norma @normajeanesaysIf I ever got a romance/women's fiction like Jane the Virgin/Ugly Betty, I'd die with happiness. #R #CR #WF #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YKaTAMA6nh
It's been over 2 years for this one, and I have a field of crickets in my inbox too. #MSWL
#MSWL I am always looking for a strong Cozy Mystery with a female protagonist, 70-90K words with a strong hook. I am also looking for Amish Romances, Romantic Suspense, Women's Fiction, Psychological Suspense, Middle Reader Mysteries, Historical Romances, Historical Mysteries.
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
#MSWL My Adult Romance loves are enemies to lovers tropes, as well as best friend to lovers tropes, and I really fall for some wounded military heroes and alpha males with a strong softness, as well as women who can hold their own but realize they don't necessarily need to.
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊
I will not be able to spend a lot of time in #PitMad, but I am open to queries and hungry. #MSWL: mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary adult fiction. Query me here: querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs a woman in business, I read business books & listen to podcasts & seek out those by women. But I’m discouraged that most are still written by white men. Is there a belief that the audience for these books will only read white men?
I’d like to see more books by POC & women that are written for ALL business owners & entrepreneurs. #mswl just because a book is written by a woman why do we target only women in the subject?
For PBs: author/illustrators only. (I know that stings a little. Sorry?) I like modern art styles, whimsical-with-heart stories, light humor, honest kid emotions, and simple prose. +100 for women and POC author/illustrators. #mswl
