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
In addition to this, my favorite Romance tropes are best friends to lovers; enemies to lovers; we're stuck together and you drive me crazy, but I guess I love you trope; unrequitted lover who finds a better fit trope, and forbidden love that becomes a HEA trope. <3 #MSWL
Definitely looking for adult romance that has a nice twist. I'm not about romance in all it's tradition, as I usually like something slightly off-kilter. (i.e. @KatieGolding_Tx amazing MotoGP/Rodeo/Western Romance coming at you 2020). Give me something that breaks lines! #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.
I really, really would love an Outlander type of historical romance WITHOUT the rape. You got Jamie, Claire, and Jennie types of characters I can fall in love with without being triggered into anger and furious rage because everyone is raped? That’d be great. ❤️ #MSWL
Speaking of BFFs to lovers, did anyone ever make a marriage pact with their BFF when they were in high school? Like, “if we’re not married by the time we’re 40, we’re gonna marry each other.” Curious to see if anyone had this, and if they did, I want my BFF to lovers MS. #MSWL
I could really use a The Bold Type story of friendship and romance written by and for the millennial generation of BOSS LADIES! Women who work hard, play hard, and love hard, supporting each other along the way, too. And a partner who isn’t afraid of boss &*+@#€$! ❤️ #MSWL
#MSWL My Adult Romance loves are enemies to lovers tropes, as well as best friend to lovers tropes, and I really fall for some wounded military heroes and alpha males with a strong softness, as well as women who can hold their own but realize they don't necessarily need to.
#MSWL I think I need another adult romance manuscript in my life. I really seem to like romances that straddle the border between romance and WF, with enough growth that makes the romance believable, but based enough on the romance that without it, you wouldn't have a story.
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
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!
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! 😁
I still desperately need a Women's Fiction or Romance or even just Contemporary like The Bold Type! Friendship and female bosses galore! And HUMOR! All the laugh out loud lines, please! #MSWL
