Happy Pride Month! This and every month I'd love to see LGBT+ stories in my submissions, please and thank you!! #mswl
(I love queer fiction and queer stories, from all parts of the sexuality and gender spectra, including coming out and coming of age stories but also just LGBTQ people doing normal stuff people in books can do - solve crimes, fall in love, makes mistakes and find themselves)
Hattie @hatteatimeI judge all my submissions on three criteria - strength of concept (is it marketable? is it individual? is it interesting?), confidence of voice (you get a sense of the fluency of a voice from one page alone) and sustained compelling storytelling (which I need a full ms to judge)
Right now I'm looking for contemporary fiction (both commercial and upmarket), historical fiction and crime fiction. I'm really keen to hear from diverse voices - BIPOC writers, LGBT writers, regional writers, disabled writers, working class writers, writers without a degree.
theHattieandtheivy🎄 @hatteatimeOn my #mswl at the moment: a YA book about siblings who look out for each other; a British Stephanie Plum; something with a stage magician.
Also a police procedural w/ a WOC detective; women's fiction dealing sensitively with transgender issues; reality cooking show fiction #mswl
