While I represent novellas for current clients, I'm still not taking on new clients on the strength of a novella. Not enough markets. #mswl

#MSWL historical non-fiction: small stories that illuminate a whole world.

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 30 Jun 2016

Adorable body horror, like Beetlejuice or Simon Green's Dead Boy (from the Nightside series) #mswl

Non-fiction: I love "history of an idea" books, like Richard Bushman's Refinement of America #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 30 Jun 2016

Plot twists based on a reader's natural misunderstanding of the situation or character. (Think Severus Snape, for example) #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 30 Jun 2016

I have a weird affection for stories about communes. Think Arcadia/Drop City - in space! #MSWL

Have you written a science fiction novel for adults set in an appealing future? Send it on! #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 13 Jun 2016

Always, always looking for fiction that fosters empathy. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 13 Jun 2016

Always, always looking for characters of all types, backgrounds, histories, races, ages, sexualities. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 13 Jun 2016

I’d like to see a hero win through negotiation, subterfuge, rhetoric, forming alliances, diplomacy, will, skill, and integrity. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 13 Jun 2016

No stories about killing faceless non-characters. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 13 Jun 2016

No stories that make guns look like magical things that make bad guys disappear. No "redemption through violence" narratives. #mswl

Going through the #queries. I love historical fantasy but probably shouldn't take any more for a while. I need more sci-fi. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 19 Apr 2016

Secret loves: novels set on communes/intentional communities, books with a noir feel, heroes that don't think they're heroes. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 15 Mar 2016

On the other hand, I'm a sucker for books that combine a really weird premise with writing that makes me care about the protagonist. #mswl

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 11 Feb 2016

I always forget it's #MSWL ! Here's what I want-- really fun science fiction. Make me want to live in the future with your characters.

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · 28 Jan 2016

After reading the first three chapters of your #ms, I want to feel desperate to know what happens to your protagonist. #mswl
