I'm reading emails, queries, and tweets in the midst of a Saturday spent judging varsity debate rounds. Oh, would I love a debate novel (#MSWL), YA or adult either. The varsity resolution debates the degree to which standardized tests ought to be used during college admissions.
One of my #MSWL books is about a child or adult who is gifted: mcgt.net/checklist. <-- Questions for you, as parents and as teachers! Little gifted munchkins require a lot of support, in a particular way. Not quite the same, but...
I had the joy of completing a new interview with @DarlingAxe, + I cover preferred genres (#MSWL -- fiction + non-fiction, for YAs + adults), submissions, the industry, + good books. Check out the full interview here: bit.ly/2kZ1ten.
Ready to hit the sack. Thought through more exercises for really solid #fiction #writing, + hit this sweet spot bit.ly/2m1boQI. Would love any fiction [#MSWL] from anyone who's writing/thinking like this, especially any thrillers and crime fiction.
Beyond this, I have yet to ever go on submission with a good thriller or memoir, and so throwing out a desire these, in an especial way, but throw me any YA and adult fiction and non-fiction you've got, with some exceptions. Open to #queries like heck! #MSWL
I'd love a good novel that explores the affective/emotional life as a key plot development device. I'd also love of a novel that treats of healthy religiosity--for YAs or adults both. So often, religion is negatively grasped and/or understood as damaging. #MSWL
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.
