It's #MSWL day, and I'll be doing a thread right here throughout the day! Remember if you're ready to submit your manuscript and see me ask for it today with the hashtag, feel free to go over to @SavvyAuthors WriterCon Pitchfest and pitch me your work! 😍 savvyauthors.com/blog/pitch-boo…
Also, I've started watching Reign, and I hate to admit it but I really miss court intrigue and historical YA. 😭 But can I get Greer's story being in love with the cook instead of Mary, Queen of Scots royalty like story? Greer is definitely my favorite romance. #MSWL
Quressa Robinson (she/her/queen) @qnrisawesome@bhvide I would love to see stories about bucking gender roles as a girl who loves wearing pants and dresses, but it would be nice for the girl to become a knight without having to hide her gender and in a dress even. I loved how it was handled in ATLAB.
This. 👇🏻 Seconding this #MSWL.
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!
Guys, I need a pirate manuscript in my life ASAP. Who has one they can query me with? I need to relive my favorite books right now. Bonus points if you have a character with a personality or traits like Tia Dalma/Calypso with a hard pirate/sailing edge. #MSWL
Seriously, Brooklyn is my new favorite movie and it makes me so happy every time I turn it on. I ordered it on DVD on 2-day delivery just so I can bring it to the U.K. With me and force @writerShanna to watch it. 😂 Anyone have a YA historical like this? #MSWL
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13#MSWL #LGBT How about hist fic where nobleman's WIFE finds a mistress and must conceal their love? 😍
I second this #MSWL. I'd totally also be down for a historical where a woman is married and knows her husband is in love with another man, but they're best friends, so she helps him hide it from the public, or vice versa. Read one like this once and am still in love with it.
Currently watching Brooklyn and taking a break from work, and OMG I'M LOVING THIS MOVIE!! 😭 Why am I such a romantic slub recently? I love this. Can I have a Historical like it?! PLEASE?! #MSWL YA or Adult, I totally don't care. 😭😭😭
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
I have a secret weakness for sci-fi that's monster and tech heavy...and maybe even including aliens. My love for movies like Transformers and Pacific Rim have no bounds! If you can give me something like Pacific Rim technology and piloting in a book, I'd be so happy! #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! 😁
Erica Bauman @Erica_BaumanSends out a million #MSWL wishes into the universe for a YA version of this to show up in my inbox. twitter.com/refinery29/sta…
Chelsea Billings LeGault @cbillings90@YAFantasyFan Hi Kelly, would you consider repping a MG contemporary if it spoke to you? Thanks so much!
Yes, I would! :) Specifically if it's heart warming MG and has LGBTQIA+ characters. #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFanWatching Pearl Harbor, and Josh Hartnett still remains the celebrity love of my life. 😍❤️ #NoRegrets #ImOld pic.twitter.com/STeLItcIv1
Someone please write me a manuscript with Danny in uniform in a war where he doesn't die. #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFanWith all these pitch contests coming up, I'd love to give everyone pitching a chance to get to know me as a person and as an agent so that you all can make the best decision for yourselves whether or not to submit to me. So I'm giving you random facts and am open for questions!
I have a horse and his name is Leroy, but I dislike most horse manuscripts because I will normally find the authors is wrongly informed, has never had a real connection with a horse, or the horse gets injured. Avoid these, and we might be okay. #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFan#MSWL I'd like to state for the record that I am still looking for, and will always be looking for, diverse perspectives, authors, characters, cultures, and environments in manuscripts and books. This includes POC, LGBTQIA+, genderfluid, neurodiverse, and all the other categories
And non-categories you may identify with or place yourself within that help you to find and tell YOUR STORY. Because your stories and your voices are IMPORTANT and valid and deserve to be heard. #MSWL
