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
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

In the last 2 days, 2 editors have told me they're looking for SFF rooted in Vietnam and more broadly SE Asia.
If that's your book and you're looking for an agent, get in touch!
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.

Definitely #MSWL ...but this might be the first time I'm not sure whether it's on the list as SFF or nonfiction?
