Time for a 2020 #MSWL refresh!
Would love to see:
*more, generally by Korean authors in both YA & adult
*strong literary/upmarket fiction from a diverse POV (think Celeste Ng, Jean Kwok, Kamila Shamsie, etc.)
*YA thriller in the vein of SADIE

Yo, #MSWL! This is what I'm talking about when I say I want historical fiction that focuses on "stories of those that history has largely chosen to not tell."
Also, please, as ever: any "big think" nonfiction. I'm fascinated by investigative journalism (I loved DREAMLAND by Sam Quinones); tech, pop science, pop psychology, and anything with a feminist lens (currently reading GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister & loving it). #MSWL
It's January, which means it's cold & gray & I hate leaving the house, so send me your work to keep me company! #MSWL: would love a more literary thriller a la THE TWELVE LIVES OF SAMUEL HAWLEY or BARBED WIRE HEART; writing from marginalized writers a la THE LEAVERS or
My updated #MSWL is up! Find it here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/amy-… Would love more upmarket/literary fiction from women of color and, since we're approaching Halloween, things with a bit of spook to them.
Amy Elizabeth @amylizbishopI would just like this book right now, please #mswl twitter.com/GraceKendallLi…
Actually, I would really just like any books featuring women of any age taking matters into their own hands and hunting down shitty men, so bring 'em on. #mswl
Grace Kendall @GraceKendallLitFor any of you who have a Teen-Girl-Becomes-Serial-Killer-Who-Targets-Misogynists-with-Overwhelming-Success manuscript sitting on your hard drive, have your agent submit it to me in the morning, please and thank you. #mswl
I would just like this book right now, please #mswl
So I finished THE POPPY WAR by @kuangrf over the weekend and...holy crap. It's INCREDIBLE. I am #MSWL'ing the heck out of this book and...ready to go add some more stunning adult fantasy like this to my TBR. Suggestions welcome!!
julia reinstein @juliareinsteinjust met a girl at a boxing class who told me she started boxing two weeks ago when she found out her boyfriend had been cheating on her with four girls. now, all five of the girls are friends and they box together.
Putting this out into the universe: actively looking for nonfiction proposals in the areas of historical narrative nonfiction, pop science/psychology, work that targets a millennial audience, & work that engages in discussions happening in the feminist & political spheres. #mswl
