Laura Crockett @LECrockettI loved THE BIRD & THE BLADE, now I’m reading Elizabeth Bear (RANGE OF GHOSTS) for the first time—and I think what I’m loving most about these fantasies: Khan. Great Khan, Genghis Khan, Mongol Empire, Song Dynasty, Silk Road, history across the steppes & China—I want it. #mswl
If you have a historical, fantasy, or historical fantasy manuscript in adult or YA that fits this era and/or setting, or is inspired by this era and/or setting, please send to me! I want more non-Euro stories like this. #mswl

LRT(s): I adore romcoms! Recently flailed over THE FLATSHARE (5⭐️) and I’m so pumped to start THE FRIEND ZONE and AYESHA AT LAST. Got a romcom like those? Check out my #mswl (scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…) and #MSWLaesthetic for more!
dσxxεd Ъuт หσт σuт @twmentality1This all-black WW II women's battalion, the 6888th, were deployed by Roosevelt to make sure American soldiers received the huge backlog of mail being sent to them.
When they were denied firearms, they trained in jujitsu, to keep intruders out of their compound.
Met @kristywharvey today at my library and she signed all three of my books! Agents can be fangirls too 😉
Y’all, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love contemporary women’s fiction. If you can write sisters like Kristy, send it my way! #mswl
Historical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl
I’m focusing a lot in Adult as well—women’s fiction, fantasy, and historical. With WF I want to see upmarket book club fiction (ELEANOR OLIPHANT) and romcoms (MEET CUTE). I want lyrical, historically-inspired fantasy (EMPIRE OF SAND, Juliet Marillier, anything witches). #mswl
YA romcoms are my jam. Always have been. I want to see more STEM, fun jobs, and unique hobbies. DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, ROYALS, and ALEX, APPROXIMATELY are perfect examples of voice, humor, and substance in contemp YA romcoms! #mswl
I love laughter, warmth, introverts, character-driven narratives, perseverance, being transported to different places and times, gorgeous and grounded world-building, heart, friendship, and family.
Here’s what I’m seeking this year! #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…
There are several ways to see my #mswl!

I hope we can connect on a project soon! 📖 Submission guidelines on triadaus.com.
Help me through this sinus infection by sending me #mswl I’m desperate to read:
Female code breakers/spies a la BBC’s Bletchley Circle, THE ALICE NETWORK, or VELVET UNDERCOVER. Remarkable women in history who served great purpose in war. Mostly adult, but will take YA!
Getting lots of great queries thanks to the @WritersDigest feature!
For more info on what I enjoy, check out MSWL (manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…) and my blog post (scribblesandwanderlust.wordpress.com/2018/01/01/msw…). I hope you find this helpful! #amquerying #querytip #mswl
Lindsey Hall @LindseyHall17#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short
Yes please. #mswl
