Lauren’s The Worst (preorder Now💁🏻♀️)
I’m officially open to queries again! 🎉 I am especially eager to find MG, Adult thrillers, + upmarket Adult SFF. However, you can find my full wishlist (and submission guidelines) on the Triada website, MSWL website, or #mswl hashtag. I look forward to hearing from you! 📚
Tracy Jan @TracyJanThieves used voice-mimicking software to imitate an executive’s speech & dupe his subordinate into sending $240,000 to a secret account, in one the world’s first publicly reported artificial-intelligence heists.
Remarkable story by @drewharwell washingtonpost.com/technology/201…
The New York Times @nytimesThis lake is 16,500 feet above sea level and is frozen most of the year. But on warmer days, hundreds of human skeletons, some with flesh still attached, emerge from it. A new study has uncovered more of the mystery of "Skeleton Lake." nyti.ms/2za1AaL
Katy Rose Pool @KatyPoolLook I love morally gray/antihero type characters (and There Will Come a Darkness certainly has a few) but I also love characters who are morally righteous and struggling with maintaining their ideals in an unjust world
I mean. #mswl
John Cusick @johnmcusick@laurenspieller I don't know if it's my favorite podcast, but "Fiasco" on This American Life is a classic.
Just listened to this episode over my lunch break & now I am desperate for a book that could arguably be titled THE FIASCO. #mswl
ellen @ellencormierIs anyone writing a YA novel about a queer teen's mind being blown upon reading these letters and then petitioning their high school to change the curriculum's portrayal of Emily Dickenson? Because I super want to publish that #mswl twitter.com/annabroges/sta…
I NEED THIS. #mswl
Julia McCarthy @thejumblesI want to believe that stories can change hearts. I’m actively seeking stories about immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized, so please send me your graphic novels, your picture books, your YA, your MG! Love and empathy and awareness can be radical. #MSWL
Kate Prosswimmer @kap212Last weekend's Saturday plans gave me a new #mswl request - a YA thriller set on Governors Island (or someplace similar) after dark!
A contained situation where safety is visible but out of reach 👍🏻
A ton of similar-looking buildings (disorienting but many places to hide!) 👍🏻
oh my gosh who is going to write this for meeee (and Kate) #mswl
Lindsay Landgraf Hess @LindsayLHess@laurenspieller What are you hoping to see in your slush inbox in the coming months, anything in particular?
My #mswl is pretty extensive, but I really want more MG, adult thrillers, and crossover/adult SFF
