‘MONEY’ EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO

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!
As of now, I am only accepting referred queries from authors traditionally marginalized in publishing! Thank you to everyone who’s generously shared materials with me - I will reopen in 2022! #AmAgenting #AmQuerying #WritingCommunity #MSWL #SpineSquad
Oftentimes Jack @PepsFFKStarted Nothing But Blackened Teeth last night & you know when they say someone's writing is as sharp as a knife, never has it fit so aptly than it does for @casskhaw. The way they make interpersonal relations as much a part of the horror as the horror is perfection.
This is why Cassandra Khaw is a comp on my #MSWL!!
Can we get more domestic thrillers with broader definitions of "domestic"? I love reading a good suburban, white, het, middle class, nuclear family takedown as much as the next person, but there's nothing reflecting my life or experiences in there at all. #MSWL
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI still want more joyful stories from neurodivergent authors, in fiction and non-fiction, kid-lit and adult. I started pitching out a project this month to editors that I'm so wildly proud of.
So keep those queries coming.
Have questions? DM me. I'm not perfect, but I'm trying.
(As a ND agent, hard) SAME! (Query us both, or whichever of us seems like the better fit!) #MSWL
Wenzler Powers @WenzlerPowersWe need new ghosts. I'm sick of this "little victorian girl skipping rope in the attic" shit. I wanna see a ghost in Keds throwing a controller at the wall cause he can't beat Duck Hunt
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spines1/ Pals, I was raised on late 90's/early 00's crime dramas. So many of these stories are how-the-mighty-fall type stories... marginalized victims getting justice or vengeance while privileged oppressive folks get their come uppance. BUT
2/...they are also big time copaganda. If you are writing crime stories that will appeal to my sense of nostalgia AND have progressive politics, I want to see them Very Much! #MSWL
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spinesA friend of mine pitched me a book idea tonight, and if anyone has written/is writing this book, I WANT: a book about the friendship and rivalry between the young skateboarders at the Olympics, the 12-20 year olds that are super skilled and just go out in competition looking...
...like it's just a big game! The 12 year old Japanese skater and the 13 year old British skater would be epic characters. #MSWL
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spines@HannahM_Writes No this is a GREAT question! When I say romcom, I'm using it as shorthand for a single-title romance novel, and I'm particularly interested in high-concept. I'm looking for three things: love story (platonic or romantic) central to the plot, HEA (can be traditional or not, but...
You can find my weirdly specific asks and all my long-winded details on my MSWL page! Please follow my agency's submission guidelines when you query me!
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spinesLAST BUT NOT LEAST: A crime novel that’s set in a community or about a group of people who see crime differently than privileged white folks usually do. Would like something by an author who has unique insight, or a perspective...
...we don’t usually see in publishing. Think: S.A. Cosby, the Netflix series Making a Murderer.
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spines8: I really, really want a western with a horse-girl-esque twist. Westerns are having a moment, I grew up riding and surrounded by equestrian culture, and I would love to see something fresh and progressive...
...by a rural author with something interesting and new to say. Think: Heresy, by Melissa Lenhardt; Outlawed, by Anna North.
7: A cultural commentary on cancel culture, by an author with an established platform and some expertise in online life, technology, anthropology, research, something. Think: The You’re Wrong About podcast episode on the subject.
