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/
"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/
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
Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?
Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheimGood morning! It's #MSWL day!
Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.
Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.
Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!
also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take
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
