When you stumble across an ad for @norsemeat upcoming releases from @familiustalk in the latest @publisherswkly! Having a baby? This one is for you! And now I’m off to find more charming gift nonfiction to add to my list #mswl ift.tt/2NUl7n7

Elaine Spencer @ElaineSpencer · 14 Nov 2018

I've changed my #MSWL a bit lately and am adding more and more talented NF authors to my roster. @norsemeat knocked it out of the park with this project that I pulled straight from our slush pile of queries!

Elaine Spencer @ElaineSpencer · 26 Oct 2018

Great news! The Knight Agency has changed our submission process and I'll be personally looking at all of my own queries now! Check out my current #MSWL (and for the rest of the TKA team as well!) and the new way to query: knightagency.net/submissions/

Sara Ackerman @AckermanBooks

LOVE FRIENDSHIP STORIES? #FridayReads #authors18 twitter.com/BookSparks/sta…

I've been lucky in life in the friendship category which is perhaps why a good friendship story is always high on my #mswl and a reason why I fell in love with @AckermanBooks's submission way back when.

Books about books. Swoon. An always auto-buy (and perennial #mswl for anyone thats keeping track!) - I WOULD be so jealous that this one wasn't mine if it weren't for the fact that it's my agency sister @jannabonikowski's instead. Congrats ladies. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Dying for a contemporary OR TO REALLY RAISE THE STAKES, historical (a la Madmen), workplace-set manuscript - women's fiction, romance, bookclub, satire, dramedy, or young adult (tell me you dont remember that crush from your first job!) #mswl

#MSWL Always on hunt for stories where setting drives the action. Something that can't be stopped or controlled. Boom automatic conflict.
