Catherine Hedrick Armstrong
I would love a sports romance in the vein of Jason and Kylie Kelce’s origin story. Make him a teddy bear like Jason and give him a playboy brother like Travis for a possible book 2. Bonus points if she’s a pro athlete, too.
Since I’m opened to queries, I’ll throw out something I’m interested in getting that’s not on my #MSWL : “accessible” fantasy like THE FOURTH WING!
Give me dragons or gryphons or other mythical creatures in a GROUNDED world that DOES NOT need a lot of world building.
4/...If you're interested in querying me, please take a look at my #MSWL .
I’m currently listening to @ReadPippa’s STUD IN THE STACKS and I’m dying to rep something with this level of humor. I mean *Laugh-out-Loud* HILARIOUS! If you can WITHOUT EXAGGERATING, comp your ms to this or one of her other LOL titles, comment below—I want it NOW!! #MSWL
To authors paying attention to #MSWL, here's my shoutout to MAKE SURE YOU VISIT THE AGENT'S WEBSITE & FOLLOW THEIR SUB REQUESTS TO THE LETTER!
For myself, I NEVER accept queries via email, so if you email me w/a query, it will always get deleted without reading or responding.
Though I'm still closed to queries & will open BRIEFLY in April for Hist Fic & YA Myst/Thrillers, here's my full #MSWL. I'll open again after my brief April opening & will want everything on this list and more! So work on your queries and edit those pages!
I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!
🇺🇦 Cathie Hedrick-Armstrong *HAS NEW FB GROUP!* @C_H_ArmstrongI would LOVE to see this book written by an indigenous creator with an indigenous MC. Bonus points for Cherokee or Choctaw Tribes. twitter.com/booksbystefany…
Oh! I forgot: #MSWL. DM me if you have this so I can give you a link since I’m closed to queries.
泛依婷 Stefany Valentine Ramirez @booksbystefanyI wrote a book about a girl who reconnects with her 1st language as a way to reclaim her heritage. Then on my FYP I see many Asian diaspora talking about their experiences with forgotten/lost language. So many people have had this experience & I cant wait for my book to find them

#MSWL #YA with an Elite (or very close) level gymnast making the very difficult decision to leave the sport, either due to injury or burnout.
If you have this while I’m closed to queries, DM me for a link.
#MSWL I’m a MAJOR Garth Brooks fan. If you have a manuscript inspired by a Garth Brooks song or that uses a GB song list, I WANT IT! I’m closed for queries but DM me for a link. #WritingCommunity #GarthBrooks

#MSWL as a Romance!!!!!!! I’m not currently open to queries, but if/when you have this, DM me for a link!!
Tessa Woodward @TessaofAvonleaHas someone written a novelization of this yet? If not, please write it for me! #mswl washingtonpost.com/history/2019/0…
Oh wow! I would read this in either fiction or narrative nonfiction. An epistolary format in fiction should be FABULOUS!!! #MSWL.
Note: I'm closed to queries, but if you have this EXACT thing, I would read it.
Sabina Nordqvist @sabinapostsI'm just a girl, standing in front of publishing, asking them to publish stories about disabled characters... by authors who have those disabilities. 🙏
Yes!! I’m opening to queries on July 1, and I’d love to receive manuscripts with disabled characters! Also #BIPOC & #LGBTQ+. Would especially love indigenous characters/stories. Check out my #MSWL while you wait! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…
Okay, folks: here’s your heads up! I will be opening to queries on JULY 1 and will only be open for ONE WEEK! I’ll be looking for romance and thrillers, mostly; but check out my #MSWL for more info. I’ll post the query link as we get closer. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…
Kerry Winfrey @KerryAnnThere are a lot of 90s/2000s rom-com leads left. Pining for Bill Pullman. Hoping for Hugh Grant. Hung Up on Harry Connick Jr. (subtitle: Specifically in Hope Floats, Not in Annie with an Obvious an Unsettling Bald Cap)
THIS! THIS! THIS!
I DON’T CARE IF I’M CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS!!!
If you have this exact thing, reach out NOW and I’ll read it NOW! PLEASE! I’m begging!! Just can’t be too similar to WAITING FOR TOM HANKS, but the same type of theme is what I’m looking for.
