June Hur, Queen of the Heo Clan @WriterJuneHurI never thought this day would come, and it still feels very unreal to me, but I'M GOING TO BE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR.
My book is a murder mystery set in Joseon Dynasty Korea, & also a coming-of-age tale about a girl searching for home. It'll be out in the world in 2020! 😭 pic.twitter.com/vQR0sRk8og
Oh I'll read the heck out of this one!
And it seems like a good time to remind #amquerying Twitter that high on my #MSWL for SFF/spec fic are stories set in Korea and/or that draw on Korean myth and history
Leigh 'Birch' Harlen 🦇 @LeighHarlen@gaileyfrey Well, this was surprisingly popular. Is queer, trans slacker Legally Blonde on anyone's manuscript wishlist? Cause I also ended a six year relationship and had sex with a girl (in the woods, lol) for the first time in law school. I could make that shit so queer and so trashy

Micro SF/F stories @MicroSFFFew children are born to us out there, among the stars. Maybe we need the right magnetosphere, or maybe there are no souls. So we return to Earth, like sea turtles returning to their beach, and every time, we find you have forgotten us.
Come, will you come with us to the stars?
Hi! I get this Q a lot, so--
@RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF.
Across both, I want to learn surprising things through compelling characters.
For specific examples, check #MSWL

Also on my #MSWL--everyone and their mother is producing/staging/writing adaptations of Twelfth Night
That's great! I love Twelfth Night, you love Twelfth Night, we all love Twelfth Night.
But please, for the love of Jacques, will somebody send me an "As You Like It" adaptation
N. K. Jemisin @nkjemisinEvery time I see another mediocre Europe-based fantasy, I think of how many brilliant non-European fantasies got rejected to make room for it.
Non-European fantasy is on my forever #MSWL.
Please send it to me so I can submit it to the host of editors who tell me regularly how hungry they are for different stories, fresh settings, and fresh points of view.
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichenWould love a mythical take on PERFUME (Suskind) with paints instead of scents: historical/secondary world fantasy where True Ochre requires the hair of a just man who's never known bitterness, True White the tears of a serpent who's lost her love etc. Art, blood, hunts. #mswl
The cow as white as milk
The cape as red as blood
The hair as yellow as corn
The slipper as pure as gold
(Seconding this #MSWL)
Samantha Mash 🌾 @anamericanghostKhutulun was the great-great-granddaughter of Genghis Khan. She was a strong fighter and insisted that any man who wished to marry her must defeat her in wrestling, but any man who she beat would have to give her a horse. She wound up with 10,000 horses. twitter.com/xnulz/status/9…
Hi writers, I just got off the phone with an editor at a major SFF publisher who specifically mentioned seeing this on my #MSWL and demanded I send it to her if it ever came in.
If you've got it, flaunt it--right into my inbox.
Military Times @MilitaryTimesArmy researchers are developing a self-aware robot #squid you can 3D print in the field. Neat: bit.ly/2K38piC pic.twitter.com/3dLzelT5vu
Definitely #MSWL ...but this might be the first time I'm not sure whether it's on the list as SFF or nonfiction?
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween#MSWL *whispers* send me a *clears throat, louder now* send me a vampire book, for I am ready
In this arena, the right match for me would be a project that leans Carmilla or Christabel rather than Buffy or Bella.
🏳️🌈misha fletcher @mishafletch@blairpallen My favorite part of this thread is all the responses going 'I, TOO, WOULD EAT THE DOCTOR'
The area surrounding our pack's territory has, the most supportive and helpful and non-judgmental medical professionals in the world, because we ate the rest.
GOOD WORK, EVERYONE.
I have the supernatural disease where every time I see a modern feminist twist on a historical/fantastical myth I am compelled to say #MSWL
