I will also take villains who are the MCs, heroes who are made heroes because they’d be too powerful if they were baddies, some murder mystery, himbos & bimbos being best friends, the vibes of Miles Morales leaping off the building, also the vibes of Nick Miller doing anything
I am open to queries. I repeat: I am open to queries.
What do I want? Who knows. I mean, I do know. Maybe some fae, some smutty fantasy romance, maybe some gay witches, I don’t know let’s also throw in a himbo or two.
I am open to queries.
That is all.
Emily Forney @EmilyKaitlinnnHere’s a look at a few specific things I’d love to find! twitter.com/emilykaitlinnn…
I want something that will break my heart. Sobs outside of a movie theatre parking lot. Hands shaking, trembling before a huge moment. Screaming for help through small physical actions people don’t pick up on. Contemporary MG, YA or NA with big stakes & family drama.
Oh what I would give for some YA and crossover historical dramas. I’m talking period pieces, assassin stories, retellings set in their original time periods, royal courts and political intrigue 👑
Please give me books where I can fan cast this man
I’m interested in looking at college stories. Early college years. Awkward teens transitioning to “adulthood” and having their firsts. People going too hard with their freedom and designing dorms and new wardrobes and trying new clubs to navigate unknown identities #mswl
The Owl House is, and will probably always be, my god tier of children’s media. The found family. The humor. The magic and demonic world building. The middle grade storytelling that is actually universal and so smart and witty. The humor and heart. The rep. All of it. #mswl
Hi🧍🏽♀️I’m opening to queries soon!
I took a break to dive deep into projects on my list & also read/watch new media I fell for.
I have an updated #mswl for querying authors to look at on my website, but I also wanted a 🧵thread below for anyone thinking we might make a rad team!
Emily Forney @EmilyKaitlinnnHi writers🧍🏽♀️
I’ve been doing a lot of client work & reading truly incredible submissions and overall just have been wildly busy. I’ve nearly gone through all outstanding queries and will dedicate October to submissions so please know you’ll hear from me soon if you haven’t yet!
✨To all the picture book authors of the world✨
I have been closed to unsolicited picture book subs for a while, but now, I feel really good about bringing on a few authors.
I’ll be open to picture book subs for a small window August 10-Sept 1 only
My dream PB #mswl below:
Update on my #mswl for early 2021
For MG (open to almost everything here):
✨Disability rep in genre fiction
✨Spooky, bonus if legends outside western lens
✨Stories about community and cities
✨Fantasy of all kinds
✨Bob's Burgers-like humor and quirk
✨Queer first loves
I updated my website with lots of super fun things (I say that loosely) including new things I am looking for and a blog page that will introduce you to me! If you're new and want to actually get to know me, check it out to see if we'd be a good match
I am on a roll reading queries right now and I’m so so desperately in the mood for a warm, cheesy #YA meet cute or some really cool historical fiction. Where you at #amquerying authors? Also please please Black authors, send me your ideas and let me hype you up! #MSWL
