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.

For specific examples, check #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.

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