I am completely up to date on queries and nearly so with requested MSS (just 3 in the queue!) so am in dire need of more! Please send your "comps to KJ Charles" specfic romance, Hannibal-esque sexy horror, dark academia, MG mysteries, and all your funny stuff to the front #MSWL
My list is pretty fully of geniuses at the moment but there are some things I've been wanting to sign for an age--maybe you can help me out? #MSWL
- adult space opera
- MG mystery (sff/contemp)
- series-friendly GN
- YA/MG horror GN
- anything like IN OTHER LANDS, pls, I'm dying
Rachel Diebel is Mostly Away🌻 @diebelraThe marketing team clearly intended this to be a "scary, look it's so scary that the roles are reversed here!!" poster for a contemporary psychological thriller/horror movie, and all of us took one look at this poster and said "sexy historical? sexy historical." pic.twitter.com/np7FRjjfgu
so I'm not saying anything too spicy but if--IF!!--you had the MS that fits what this movie poster appears to be selling (it can still be as spooky as you wish!) then you know where to find my query inbox #MSWL
Pretty much my only huge, overwhelming prose #MSWL right now is a manuscript that feels like ACCA-13 and I feel like for this to happen I will have to either wait a lifetime or one of my authors will surprise me next week with a completed MS made to order
Artist Alley yesterday plus ending the day with the @RHKidsGraphic panel has me SO pumped for more graphic novels 😍😍 So that’s my one exception to being closed to queries right now! Send me all your pitches and proposals, from early reader through adult (no memoir, tho)! #MSWL
Alexandra Rowland ✨ @_alexrowlandHer fiance is introduced to us in a FOUR MINUTE LONG ethereally beautiful slow-motion dance sequence where he is wearing immaculate white and doing fan tricks and there's flower petals falling all around
Thank the lord for this thread bc I needed a new show to binge in the heatwave! And beefy badass warrior girl comes home to marry a delicate nobleman known for his beautiful fan dance is EXTREMELY MY JAM (#mswl)

*trips over myself to hit the QT button* #MSWL!!! (but uh, make it at least a little spec fic somehow preferably)
Jill Gutowitz @jillboardMore people should be talking about this: 'Gentlemen Jack,' a lesbian period drama series, is out April 22 on HBO. It follows Anne Lister, a real lesbian landowner in the 1800s, in her pursuit of finding a wife when female queerness was simply unheard of. It's must-see gay TV.
1. This is the first time I've heard of this!! Thank you for doing the Lord's work!
2. Make it at least a little bit magical/speculative and shove it in my inbox ASAP, thank you #MSWL

speaking of #MSWL ideas I am wasting away in want of...!
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichen@kurestinarmada YES it's wide open for a perfect intersection of labyrinthine truth & mythological strangeness. Also thinking of how pigment trade & sourcing brought together unexpected empires & cultures. Why is this not a real book in my hands with an embossed cover that looks like impasto.
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaI find Kameron’s shyness paired with her jaw-dropping bod and stunning makeup to be so charming?? Every time she wanders around like a big muscled Bambi when I expect her to be strutting I’m like 😭😭💖🙏✨ pic.twitter.com/lwKG4kqH3U
(Spoiler but that’s also a #MSWL bc every time a query talks about a shy typical “prince” character I’m tripping in my rush to get to the request button)
Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraAs it turns out, a lot of avian species—from parrots and penguins to owls and nightjars—glow in ways we can’t see. trib.al/mXY8zas
I have no idea how the heck a glowing bird would feature in a book BUT I am willing to learn so please, #mswl for all odd, eerie, magical animal traits that are somehow actually legit (or based on a real thing)
