In younger fiction, I’m looking for whimsy and fun, but also smart humor with twisted takes and thrilling mysteries. As always, I will sing the praises of The Owl House until the end of my days, but I also just love most animation out now and I would love to capture that in MG
Everything we teach people not to do? Do it. Assassins. Heists. Trained thieves. Undercover guards. All of it.
Spies? Start em young. Better yet? Put it in a competition. There are trials? Give them to me. A game to break a curse? Yup. Heists set against a clock? Throw it at me.
Fae. I want all the fae. Fae with massive, expansive, lush worlds. Court intrigue. Royalty. Hot characters doing hot things while also using swords and knives. Fae with romance. Fated mates. Enemies to lovers. Killers sent into other lands. Fae.
Emily Forney @EmilyKaitlinnn✨finger guns✨ Hi there I’ve updated my #mswl and it’s full of chaos, murder, bad choices, smut, and thievery
Have a cool book? I like cool books. Have a rad idea for a series? I’m into that. Wondering how unhinged I am? Look below 😏
There are songs on repeat for me that I would like to bottle up in a scene or if a book got a trailer:
“Vegas” by Doja Cat
“Brother” by Kodaline
“Survivor” Edda Hayes remix
“Power Over Me” by Dermot Kennedy
I need people to know I have both opened back up to queries and also opened back up to my slut phase.
So please if you write college age contemporary stories or new adult fantasy that’s filled with smut, please send it to me, your neighborhood book bimbo and hoe
✨Hi I’m back OPEN to queries✨
I’ll make a #mswl thread throughout the day, but here are a few things I’d love to see:
✨assassins, spies, detectives
✨court fantasies (maybe w/fae)
✨YA contemp. retellings of 90s movies
I’m stoked to find new books!!
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
