Check it out, check it out: "On Book Publishing as a Form of Value Investment" -- bit.ly/2ZBd6qU. That one time I took a break from #amreading for some #amwriting. Publishing is a biz that runs on maximizing the value of writers and thinkers. Keep queries coming. #MSWL
It's late at night, but I'm re-opening to queries as of tonight--anything of YA and adult, fiction and non-fiction. Whatever you've got! #MSWL Sub. guidelines here: lightningbugspub.com/submissions/. HIT ME UP, + please just be patient, as I catch up on dozens of pieces.
RE: the book on research about food allergies: I want to find books like this, so if you're an academic or an expert, EMAIL ME TOO. 😁 Working on 3-12 or so projects that would qualify, + would love more. Research research research, #ftw. #MSWL
Tonight, @JAWALSH_BOOKS + I had a brilliant, stimulating convo about brainstorming for breakout thrillers at the @thrillerwriters' #ThrillerFest19 cocktail. Throwing @axon_us out there--interesting tech to integrate into your fiction: axon.com . #thrillerfest #MSWL
Excited to see @DonMaass live for the first time, @thrillerwriters #thrillerfest, on ensuring that thrillers are actually thrilling; those books that prompt the experience of “thrill”—the sensation of being sharply and exhilaratingly excited; the tingle, the quiver... #MSWL
Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski@WeronikaJanczuk @genevievejude Also love PEOPLE OF THE BOOK.
NICE. Well, there we go--one place of contact. I AM OBSESSED WITH THE FIRST SCENE. And everything else, of course: but really cool, gifted women scientists + otherwise... Bring it. Any day. Another #MSWL for the day I open to #queries. Hang. Tight.
On my love of "The Castle in the Sky," and other films of Hayao Miyazaki, of @StudioGhibli: bit.ly/2LInyJt. I'll be re-opening to queries 8/1, but if anyone has a story that is, in any way, reminiscent of the heart here, I want it. #MSWL
I'm joining the huge @thrillerwriters pre-festivities: If you're attending, + are writing a thriller, crime novel, or suspense, you have full-blown green light permission to QUERY ME NOW PLEASE (via email): bit.ly/2p3a5iO. Ignore closure. Desperate. #MSWL #thrillerfest
Also: an update, for anyone who is curious: W. will re-open to #queries on 8/1, after three conferences here and catching up some archived manuscripts + queries. #MSWL, for then (save the date!), includes a great thriller, contemp. YA, and adult sci-fi. bit.ly/2p3a5iO
Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczukI'm writing a blog post about geniuses. Said blog post is forthcoming. One little case study that I have are the dancers of Riverdance, with whom I was obsessed as a child: bit.ly/1XfOKzL. <-- Check it out. Genius Irish tap dancing. Only goes to say: If you have... (1/2)
...a novel about Irish tap dancing, or just tap dancing, or about geniuses (high IQ, giftedness, child prodigies, etc.), please EMAIL ME. <-- #MSWL Please. I'll do anything. Think CURIOUS INCIDENT featuring the world's newest, coolest geek. Thanks.
Bria Sandford @blsandfordPride and Prejudice, except the Bennets are trying to marry off their large adult sons
Bria! This sounds excellent. I'm going to put this on my #MSWL. If someone wants to write this novel, I'll take it, and then Bria will have to figure out how to persuade Penguin Random House to acquire it on her non-fiction list. 🤨
Faber & Faber @FaberBooksHear @grahamfarmelo interviewing some of the great names in science and mathematics in his podcast series to accompany his new book The Universe Speaks in Numbers soundcloud.com/faberbooks/set… pic.twitter.com/bcgsiVilbi
Nice. This sounds utterly genius. Do I love good popular maths & sciences. #MSWL -- again, if anyone knows of or is an academic in some innovative research that could find a home on the popular/trade market, I'm interested in learning more.
E.G. Wilson @egwilsonauthor@WeronikaJanczuk @alyssammiele @billieeilish Are you looking for musician characters, @WeronikaJanczuk? Because I have something there. Or rather, two somethings -- two muso best friends in a three-person spy unit. (Not sure if you'd prefer this in a DM? + I know you're swamped.)
Well, I love music--but this was a total @alyssammiele #MSWL! I'll take a look at anything, anytime. [And will work for nine hours straight with contemporary acoustic music in the background to help me concentrate. That's all ya need to know about W.'s music tastes. 🤨]
Also, today I had the beauty of a privilege of coffee'ing it up with @alyssammiele, who sent me chasing after @billieeilish [context: #MSWL--a book featuring music]. Dang, lady--what beats. 😎 The public ought check this out: bit.ly/2MdHKVb.
Christian Sahner @ccsahnerThanks to @AARWeb and @ReadingReligion for a great review of Christian Martyrs under Islam: “This is an excellent and balanced book that I highly recommend for scholars and advanced students in every field related to the Middle East.” @PrincetonUPress readingreligion.org/books/christia…
Had the luck of starting—+ well on track to finishing—this terrific account of martyrdom under Islam; another example of a #MSWL NF for this agent in love with research. Hagiographies are studies of exp.; v. interesting to see personal/communal exps. contextualized historically.
A last thought for the eve, before W. descends into her multi-story-deep reading cavern. One #MSWL for NF: a recent acq. linked me to this 'practical philosophers' project' of @ReD_Associates, which aids biz theory: amzn.to/30EHuSu. Would love a project like this for me!
UniversalSuperStar @SuperStarAuthorAre you a #literary #agent that is looking to publish new authors? Or do you know of someone (a friend maybe, that works in the field) and that is currently accepting queries in the genre of romance drama? Let me know. #Author #LuckyBreak #AmQuerying #WritersLife #mswl #books
Always happy to look @ romance dramas on this end! #MSWL
I also happen to have a totally empty #query inbox as of 1.00am EST, and--two months into reading #manuscripts--still am on the hunt for a good thriller, women's fiction, and adult #fantasy and #scifi. I love good espionage, puzzles, and coding, & excellent female heroes. #MSWL
Amy J. @AmyJohnson895@WeronikaJanczuk Wondering if you're interested in YA dystopian/post-apocalyptic dealing with AI and a concept I call "human-zoos". I remember seeing a tweet once vaguely referencing something MSWL related. #mymemoryisgarbage
I am willing to look at anything, including YA dealing with AI! Execution is most important for this one. #MSWL
