My clients have pointed out that I've got a specific subset of YA Nerd Girl Romance, and I am always here for more! Queer & POC girls very welcome, and I'm more likely to be won over by the romance if it intersects with other themes - family, friendship, self-discovery. #mswl
Jumping into #mswl late! In general, I am open to a wide range of MG, YA, and adult fiction, and I'm currently taking queries! More info about my general interests here, and if you're not sure, always feel free to query: awfulagent.com/agents/bridget…
Sarah 💫 @Harriet_Vane_Homeopathy is obviously fake but swallowing pieces of the Berlin Wall to break down one's own emotional barriers is astonishingly poetic and the beginning of a GREAT SFF story. theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/s…
Hello yes if you (someone who is not Sarah, who is represented by my MORTAL ENEMY) write this book, please send it to me, I am extremely into turning history into magic and also all the weight attached to ancient buildings. #mswl
Rick Wayne @RickWayneWritesI wrote last summer about a genre of fantastic art that emerged a few years ago (and has since exploded) and what that might say about our era. I dubbed it “Encountering the Old Gods.” The original gallery was quite large. Here are a few more.
This is Precisely My Jam. #mswl
Felicity Disco @FelicityDiscoI know there's a lot going on in the world but I can't believe I missed that the king of Thailand MARRIED HIS BODYGUARD. washingtonpost.com/world/2019/05/…
Oh my GOD I want this SFF novel. The king marries his bodyguard IN SPACE! The king marries his bodyguard WITH SWORDS! #mswl
Bridget Smith @bredalotI have been rereading CODE NAME VERITY for the first time since my initial flurry of passion for it, and I still have the same reaction: good Jesus Christ what a VOICE.
My #mswl always includes historical fiction, but I want to have *this* reaction to it. I want a voice that's vibrant and ALIVE, that feels immediately like a person I could know, that makes the quiet parts feel intimate and the stakes feel personal.
Jessica Khoury @jkbibliophileWhere is my novel set entirely on Themyscira with absolutely no dudes appearing in any one of its 400+ glorious pages please publishing I could really use it right about now
Serious #mswl. Themyscira is licensed, of course, but I would very much love to read some novels that just do not see any reason to include a single man on the page.
In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL
Bridget Smith @bredalotI usually like a touch of magic, but lately I've been seeing a lot of queries that seemed like great high-concept contemporaries that turned into time travel or fantasy unexpectedly.
Bridget Smith @bredalotBased on many thoughts today: #mswl a YA friendship story structured like a romance. (Book recs also accepted forty one!)
I was thinking about this #MSWL recently, and - while I still want more! - it's exactly what FOOLISH HEARTS is. Enemies-to-BFFs.
