#MSWL for when I'm wearing my agent's hat...
I'm DYING for a contemporary YA or ADULT #RomCom like Dreaming by @Jill_Barnett. I read it YEARS ago and it's one few books of any genre I've kept a copy of & reread. So read it and write me something like it!
New gig, who dis?
I am so excited to join @AevitasCreative and @michellebrower. My #MSWL includes all things crime (fiction/nonfic), literary fic, narrative nonfic, speculative, horror, experimental literary, and more. Queries are open!! Editors, I'm coming for ya.
Alexandra Levick @AllieLevickAs a reminder I am NOT looking for: text-only PB authors, screenplays, true crime, satire, military thrillers, erotica, police procedurals, or books that revolve around murder.
Please don’t send these projects to me.
Rewatched Nashville over the weekend and was reminded of how much I like stories with cohesive sprawl: a wide and ranging cast of characters whose arcs gradually narrow into one another's paths. Good Omens & Visit from the Goon Squad do this too in different ways. #mswl
“I’d love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included).” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
ebony @ebonylynnmudd@HeatherHowland Gosh...me too! A whole series that turns into a movie please !!
Same. I've been thinking about these shots all day. I really, REALLY want a series about her. Borderline ready to post the first pic on my #MSWL and beg ✨👑✨
Cassandra Farrin 🐥 @CassaCassaCassaHERE AT LAST! My 2020 mega-list of ANY books that combine a real historical setting with speculative elements. There were, yet again, about 50 books (writers take note). Some themes threaded below and discussed in more detail in the blog.
Friendly reminder that if you write anything like the books on this list, I read subs for CamCat Books, both agented and unagented, and I would be SO thrilled to see more of this in the submissions queue! #MSWL

We will start with the already famous photoshoot by my supreme, Lillian Liu. (lillianliuphotography on ig) pic.twitter.com/sBaTelQ5bA
every single one of the photos in this STUNNING thread could be covers for books i desperately want to read #mswl
ebony @ebonylynnmuddI’m sharing this because when I was younger, I would’ve loved to see Black women and women of color portrayed this way.
I need it and someone else does, too.
Im just 😍😍😍😍😍 #BlackWomen #BIPOC #RepresentationMatters twitter.com/btsanima/statu…
I want a book about this girl immediately! 😍
Rebecca Roanhorse on deadline @RoanhorseBexWe were supposed to tear it down. Raze stone and timber, shatter glass and slate. Render it to rubble and burn it all, and after, salt the earth on which it had stood. That was what my grandmother's will had demanded, what the curse commanded us to do. But instead, we moved in. twitter.com/TJPayne3333/st…
Deborah Nemeth @DebNemethThis review mentions something I love seeing in romance manuscript submissions. I want to see main characters who are not looking for romance. Who are not jealous of paired-up friends, who are not told to date/get laid, who are not super aware of their single state. twitter.com/SmartBitches/s…
What I want to see instead in romance submissions are characters who are intent on achieving some sort of goal, who are leading interesting lives that get knocked sideways by the love interest. #MSWL
