I came to a realization the other day that I'm a sucker for the I-was-MIA-for-years-and-now-back-and-everything-is-different trope, like in TV shows Glitch, Manifest and every soap opera that's ever aired. I'd love to see a fresh twist on this in women's fiction! #MSWL
Today at BookEnds we’ll be sharing our #MSWL and #OneDreamBook across all of our social media platforms to help writers get a better sense of what we’re dying to see right now. (A one day… instagram.com/p/BoMGmPnHaJr/…
"Multi POV, time slip or dual past/present narrative structure women’s fiction, historical, domestic suspense, or upmarket like THE ALICE NETWORK, THE SUBWAY GIRLS." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix@wensday95 to me, when we're both reading & discussing manuscripts on the same day:
"Let's just send each other competing paragraphs of women kicking ass allllllllll dayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"
So... that's pretty much our #MSWL.
Ass kicking ladies, please and thank you. #mswl
"I’ve been fascinated by this actual event for a decade. Looking for a historical women’s fiction/book club book about garment district’s 1911 shirtwaist fire tragedy." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Real talk #MSWL: Black women with other races and genders. I want a book that reflects my reality and family.
I still get surprise from older family members who learn my husband isn't Black, or that I dated a Mexican girl in middle school. We can do better than this. We must.
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.
Would love to see romances/WF books featuring protagonists who aren't in their 20s/early 30s. Fixing marriages/rekindling the spark, reunited after divorce, second (or third!) chance at love with someone else, etc. Doesn't have to be dark AT ALL. #mswl
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansI think this is my final one of the day, so... black women writing ADULT fantasy and science fiction. I know y'all are out there. #mswl
