Kelly Is CLOSED To Queries!
I know I’ve been dubbed the Pirate Queen of YA Fantasy, but really...i dont want pirates anymore unless it’s in adult fantasy/historical. Sorry to break some hearts. 💔🏴☠️#mswl
Also really looking for some amazing African mythology and cultural beliefs/customs via contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, or just plain fantasy. #MSWL Saw one in my box and am saving it to circle back. I’d love more!!!
I’m also still begging for my King Louis XIV sun king historical court intrigue with maybe a little magic? Historical Fantasy? I could go for just historical too if the writing fits! ❤️ #MSWL
Kelly is OPEN to Queries @LitAgentKellyGood Morning! I am OPEN to queries for 2020, which means it's time to do a #MSWL thread! pic.twitter.com/9LH52Dv3Fn
For 2020, I am mostly looking for Middle Grade (Upper) and Adult stories! This includes MG Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, and Historical or any mix of the above! It also includes Adult Contemporary Romance and Adult Fantasy and any mix of the two! #MSWL
Skelly-ton is CLOSED to Queries 🎃💀 @LitAgentKellySo, I AM CLOSED TO UNSOLICITED QUERIES through January 1st, but I'm REALLY looking for some LGBTQIA+ and POC #ownvoices stories I can help to champion and get heard. I also am desperately looking for MG (fantasy, sci-fi, cont., hist.) and Adult (fantasy, cont. rom., hist.) #MSWL
Though I'm NOT asking to receive more queries, I would love to know if you sent me one and it's sitting in my box somewhere waiting for me to see it. If you haven't sent anything yet, pitch me via @SavvyAuthors next week from the 23rd-25th! If I like it, it's a request! <3 #MSWL
I am IN LOVE with most books that take place in some sort of fantasy arctic tundra. Don't ask me why. I really have no clue. But if your manuscript is atmospheric and takes place in a really harsh arctic environment, I want it! #MSWL
I'm definitely looking to add to my MG list! I love some contemp. MG that deals with tough issues, MG fantasy, and MG sci-fi (yes, sometimes even the space kind here). I'm SUPER picky about MG voice though, so just send it in and see what happens! =) Maybe I'll love it! #MSWL
*screams from rooftop*
Because I don’t have enough: I rep ADULT ROMANCE, HISTORICAL, SCI-FI, FANTASY. I rep MG CONTEMPORARY, HISTORICAL, SCI-FI, FANTASY. In addition to the YA Fantasy I have, I also rep YA CONTEMPORARY, SCI-FI, HISTORICAL, THRILLER/PARANORMAL! #MSWL please.
You know what I’m missing right now? A high fantasy (either YA or Adult) with a brilliant new world to get lost in and a fully developed, ingenious magic system. Anyone have one for me? #MSWL
#MSWL Adult fantasy for women, written by women, with a closer voice and crossover appeal, a la The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Kingdom of Exiles by Maxym Martineau, Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, etc..
I have a lot of YA in my box. You know what I’d love to have more of? MG (fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary) and Adult Romance! So a few #MSWL for these two age ranges are to follow! ❤️
#MSWL I have LITERALLY been begging for YA Fantasy rooted in a Native American tribe's mythology. If any native writers feel confident enough to send me their work, I'd be so happy to read it!
#MSWL As always, I'm so in love with YA. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, Historical, etc.. The things I'm not all that into are actually time travel (in any age range) and alternate dimensions (as of right now...little tired of them...).
I'm still running on U.K. time, so I'm a little exhausted, but I'm super excited to be at the Hilton and getting prepped and ready for #WDC18 #pitchSlam tomorrow! If you have MG, YA, or Adult romance, fantasy, futuristic sci-fi, or anything on my #MSWL, come pitch me tomorrow!
You know what'd be cool to see more of in YA Fantasy? Mythologies no one has read before, like the hundreds of Native American tribes, or the 54 countries and thousands of tribes within Africa, or Haittian or Persian or Hittite. Something that can open our eyes and minds. #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFanSo, fortunately and unfortunately, I have SO MANY fantasy and sci-fi projects that I've signed and that I still have to read and decide, which means I'll probably only like maybe one or two #sffpit pitches today. I'm sorry! But the rest of #TeamCorvisiero will be out in force! pic.twitter.com/INYAOgs8jG
In addition to this, I'm looking for some great YA and adult contemporaries and contemporary romances! 🎉 Also, I'm still on the lookout for a MG author to add to #TheFellowship! ❤️ So if you have something that matches my #MSWL, shoot me a query with the MSWL mention! 😁
Is it weird that I seriously want a Valkyrie type of fantasy with an odd twist that doesn't quite make them Valkyrie?
...but it's the same type of idea?
Do my #MSWL tweets ever make sense?
