Emmy, Purveyor Of Spines
It's easily over 100° outside my house, in the sun, right now, mid-June. I know eco-thrillers are trendy right now, but walking outside fills me with enough dread to get by on. Where are my utopian climate future books? #MSWL
Reading a colleague's client's picture book MS this afternoon and realizing that what the world needs is a PB about the red umbrella as a symbol of support for sex workers. Send this to meeee! #MSWL
It appears that there are no great books out there about families managing and/or people living with FASD. I would love to see a great, nuanced, non-fiction title on this subject. #MSWL
B&N released their top books picks of 2022 so far today, and if I had to pick one for my #MSWL, it would be @kalanipickhart's I WILL DIE IN A FOREIGN LAND - Ripped from the headlines, folkloric elements, some experimenting with form - I would jump at the chance for one like this.
Kimberly 🧜🏻♀️ Dinaro💲 @KimberDinMy first landlord was murdered and my new landlord is potentially kicking us all out by selling my building...which is all incredibly stressful because there's just no way I'm going to get away with it twice
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spines3/ I have an EMPTY QUERY INBOX. If I like your post, please consider it a request! You can send your materials to the submissions inbox at Westwood, including either #PitDark or #SmoochPit in the subject line.
I've been mulling this over for a while, but I'm officially adding this concept to my #MSWL: by an author who has lived in one and knows the culture, the story of how gentrification, urbanization, and development are impacting the residents of mobile home parks.
This is maybe nothing, but I've been looking at a lot of new release books lately, and so many of the spooky ones have frosted covers and are set in cold places... I think the pendulum is going to swing, so sent me all your SCALDING thrillers. Make me sweat. #MSWL
Shomari Kirkwood @MxOberonI feel like I want more fantasy with small scale stakes with a big sense of world. Less save the world/prevent the war. With more "Find the perfect flower to make a healing tea" and then explore the people and situations along the way. twitter.com/HiuGregg/statu…
How’s this for an #MSWL premise: YA romcom. Talented queer girl becomes trainee to be around girls and delay marriage by becoming a star. Right before her debut, she meets the love she’s always dreamed of, and has to choose between becoming a star or living her true dream life.
John Loeppky @Cymru_Et_CanadaFree book idea for anyone: write a book about doping in para-sport. Just as bent, just as frustrating, just as nuanced, just as misunderstood. twitter.com/DvoraMeyers/st…

This video just hit over 300M views in 8 weeks - and it deserves it. JUST SO YOU KNOW, K-pop books are a staple on my #MSWL and will STILL be there going into 2022... along with any other heavy-hitting Korean culture themes (K-drama, food, etc.) by knowledgeable authors.
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spinesIf you have submitted a query to me and you haven't heard back from me at all (aside from our editorial board's autoresponse), that means that I've stepped aside at this time. However, I do have a bunch of queries that I'm still considering, and a BIG stack of fulls!
I will re-open to queries some time in EARLY 2022, with a freshly updated #MSWL. I need some time to read before then, and get through my backlog! As always, ASK ME ANYTHING - in this thread, or by DM. And thank you for being here to hold me accountable through this process!
