Bria Sandford @blsandford

Pride 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 @FaberBooks

Hear @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.)

Replying to @egwilsonauthor

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. 🤨]

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · May 28

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 @ccsahner

Thanks 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.

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · May 19

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!

Had the chance to send some feedback on a #memoir earlier today, and it prompted some thoughts on memoir-writing: bit.ly/2SbMCYW. I'd love to find a beautiful one, so do send #queries, please. #MSWL

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 14 Oct 2018

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

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 7 Oct 2018

Have you heard that Markus Zusak has a new book forthcoming, a decade after THE BOOK THIEF? <-- This book blew my mind, and it's on my #MSWL to find something akin to it. And who wouldn't love the next M. Zusak? Details about his BRIDGE OF CLAY are here: bit.ly/2y9ylVa.

Random House @randomhouse

We're going live with @jodipicoult in a few minutes! Tune in here for live-coverage of her event with @bakerkline about her new novel, A SPARK OF LIGHT. On sale tomorrow! pic.twitter.com/gfl1rBFUc1

I remember when I first read @jodipicoult's MY SISTER'S KEEPER, years ago, and it rocked me--such a nuanced, intimate portrayal of the impact of an ethical question/crisis. So excited for the next novel, and please do send me anything you have in Picoult's vein here. #MSWL

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 1 Oct 2018

I'm #MSWL-ing for re-tellings (#adult or #YA) of myths, folktales, or fairytales. Always. Bring it. More. Had the chance to look at #queries and pages for an @OpAwesome6 #passorpages, and had lots to say: bit.ly/2QisRya. I encourage you all to think through m'#querytip!

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 29 Sep 2018

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 26 Sep 2018

What is an agent thinking about when s/he's reading your query and first 250? Check out @OpAwesome6's newest #PassOrPages excerpts, on retellings of myths, folktales, and fairy tales (which I love! send if you have!): bit.ly/2NJgfDh. #queries #querytip #query #YA #MSWL

Has everyone seen the trailer for *Mary Poppins Returns*? If not, it's an absolute must: bit.ly/2D7ARjL. I'd absolutely love a #novel that captures something of the vibrant imagination, color, humor, and family life portrayed here! #MSWL

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 12 Sep 2018

Last little toss in for #MSWL tonight, with guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of #YA & adult fiction!

Want to see some kickass sci-fi and science fantasy, and any epic fantasy that blows my mind with genre-bending world-building. Think HUGE!

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 12 Sep 2018

It's still time for some #MSWL! Submission guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of YA & adult fiction!

Want to see, esp., v. smart romance, with smart humor (a la @rainbowrowell), and any literary or women's fiction featuring a healthy marriage.

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 12 Sep 2018

Updated #MSWL on m'blog (bit.ly/2p3a5iO), but eager for a few things (beyond anything delightful):

*YA: literary sci-fi; anything science fantasy-esque
*thriller/crime: female-driven literary; intellectual puzzles/characters
*characters w/ intellectual, emotional gifts

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 10 Sep 2018

So v. happy to be back agenting! Check out my query guidelines and interests here: lightningbugspub.wordpress.com. Looking for terrific fiction across multiple genres, and solid non-fiction. #MSWL
