Sarah Nicolas Aka Sarah N Fisk
Announcement: I will be closed to queries 8/15 to 10/6 due to travel and so that I can read the full manuscripts I have requested. #mswl
I'd love to have in my inbox: a contemporary ya with voice for days, a strong hook, a lot of heart, and genuine humor. Preferably with queer, disability, and/or nd rep. #mswl
Jacqui Lipton @Jacqui_Lipton#mswl Now I'm settled at @TheTobiasAgency, I'm open to queries: esp. seeking mystery, suspense, thrillers; nonfiction highlighting unique and diverse perspectives; romance (MG thru adult); querymanager.com/query/jacquili… Also tagging
@Sarah_Nicolas--what are you looking for?
I'm looking for all fiction in mg and ya, plus adult SFF (from the lightest touch to high) and romance. Especially looking for queer and disabled representation. Full details in link in bio. Tagging @KellyDHouse to go next in this @TheTobiasAgency #mswl day!
Since I've seen some queries come in, just a reminder that I don't represent picture books. Or adult mysteries and thrillers that aren't speculative. (This is why they aren't options for genres in my query manager form) #mswl
Remember when Alex, Michael, and Maria hooked up on Roswell, NM? The angst, but also the vulnerability and opening up to love? If you have that in book form, but gives them a happier ending, send it my way! #mswl

Um, but.. #mswl? Like only kinda kidding but mostly serious
We need to flood (heh) the mg market with stories about periods until men are as comfortable with the subject as I had to be at 13 with why tissues and hand lotion might be on a teen boy's bedside table #mswl
Rachel Stuhler @RachelStuhler@jhernandezbooks I have to go looking for it, but I read an infuriating paper about how the image of the 1950s mom was specifically curated to put women back in the home. That the happy homemaker didn’t really exist prior to WWII. They destroyed women’s psyches for the betterment of men & knew it
Oh shit. If you could take this and make it witchy or something ... #mswl

Older sisters who have too much responsibility placed on their shoulders at too young an age
My childhood and also #mswl
Saint (S.T.) Gibson IS OPEN TO QUERIES @s_t_gibsonCalling something soapy is not an insult. Like oh, this piece of media has lots of interconnected characters, gasp-inducing twists, high melodrama, and sex appeal? God forbid.
An interviewer asked me if a writer were to write something directly for me, what would it be. The first thing that came to mind was a MG or YA queer cozy paranormal mystery. #mswl
Just realized something I need to add to my #mswl! Con artists who are not men. I actually love con artists of all genders, but am desperate to see more who are not men!!
My #mswl profile is up at the @ManuscriptWList site! There are a few more details here, especially the sections on the right side bar showing what non-book media I also love! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara…
I love books that challenge societal norms, especially gender norms; great or complicated sibling relationships; small town or midwestern settings; intriguing villains; mysteries woven into other genres #MSWL
