(2) Gilded Age/1865-1965 histfic a la AMERICAN DUCHESS, THAT CHURCHILL WOMAN, & Downton Abbey, with “dollar princesses” & other marriages ft. wealthy, influential American women in European nobility/royal/peerage society. (MC can be the heiress or close confidant.) A or YA.
I’ve been in such a Mood for two very different kinds of books:
(1) Southern fiction a la Kristy Woodson Harvey, with warmth, setting as character, female friendships and/or multigenerational families, and secrets/hardships that come to light. Can be A or YA!
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix• Adult sci fi! I need, like, an EXTREMELY energetic space opera. I want a sensory explosion in space, an enemy so frightening I get nightmares, that I'll come to understand and hopefully empathize with, too. Show me how the characters misunderstood their whole universe.
Would really, really love to see this in my query box! #mswl
Dang! This nonfiction graphic novel sounds amazing! I love that it has a strong POV, a cool hook + an informative takeaway that’s super relevant. Would love to rep graphic NF books like this! #mswl (Also my usual potty mouth says dang now thanks to better-mannered @adriamgoetz)
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos#MSWL A YA book that fits on the shelf with PRACTICAL MAGIC, THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE or THE ENCHANTED CHOCOLATE POT. But gay.
FYI this #MSWL is evergreen, but now I'll take your adult versions, too 🙏🏼
Fangirl Jeanne polluted the shades of Plemberlee. @fangirlJeanneI just want a Romance novel or movie about a fat woc pop signer having a wild, joyful romance with a queer Brit pop singer. Is that really a lot to ask?
Yeah! #mswl would read, send my way
