michael gray 💞 preorder IF I CAN GIVE YOU THAT @graybullai am once again begging for more trans femme YA protagonists written by trans femme authors!!!!!
This! I would love to see trans femme YA stories written by trans femme authors in my query box. #MSWL
I would love to find a compelling story with a transfemme/trans woman protagonist.
Any genre. MG, YA, Adult
(although #YA is forever my great love)
If you are a trans woman writer and think I could be a good fit, please #query me. #MSWL
Send me adult + #YA literary thrillers and horror. I am a suspense junkie, who loves to be scared, and I can go very, very dark--except please no violence against children or rape. But blood and gore are fine.
As are creepy dolls and bad romance (but maybe not together?).
I would love a laugh-out-loud #MG about a protagonist who learns (the hard way) how to lose with grace and emerges better equipped to face the future--not only to weather losses but to enjoy and appreciate the wins.
Actually, I'd love to find that story in any category
I am on the hunt for a gripping, page-turning #YA thriller, where the suspects are aplenty, and the story has heft--something that would sit on the shelf next to
@KCjohnsonwrites's THIS IS MY AMERICA.
Today's the day! I'm reopening to queries!
To query me: QueryManager.com/JenniferMarchS…
To learn about me:
I'm specifically looking for a few categories, so stay tuned for a #MSWL thread...
P.S. Yes to the #MSWL
Although I’m also very eager to find happy, funny stories with strong family relationships that, while not perfect, are loving and healthy for the most part.
the revenge dress sounds like the title of a page-turning novel.
you decide the genre: romantic comedy? thriller? horror?
Erin Bedell @erindaydreams#MgBookChat A3: Maybe this is going in a different direction, but as a kid I would've benefited from more books that had friendships that ended, and how to navigate that. It was devastating for me!! twitter.com/NancyTandon/st…
Roni Rabin @RoniNYTimesWhen the transplant surgeon first broached the idea of giving the patient a pig's heart to replace his diseased one, the doctor wasn't sure the patient fully understood. Then the patient said, "Will I oink?"nytimes.com/2022/01/10/hea…
Sounds like the launching point for a novel. #mswl
How do you grow up to become Senator Kyrsten Sinema, with a "Style [that] Keeps Us Guessing"?
A teen version of Sinema would make a dynamite #YA protagonist out to make her mark, dressed to win. #MSWL
Mackenzie Kiera @Kiera1MackenzieThe future of horror is female and she’s fucking pissed.
Someone asked me what kind of horror I want.
This would work. #MSWL
Aden Polydoros 🕸 Preorder THE CITY BEAUTIFUL @AdenPolydorosJust invented my YA horror rating system. 👁️👄👁️ I want them all. pic.twitter.com/jWSKgY9fUZ
jen rofé @jenrofe. @CassandraHartt on "unlikeable" characters: "But calling characters unlikeable does not make those characters any less complexly human, nor does it make us better, wiser, or more likeable ourselves." Love this. Read the post here: thenerddaily.com/cassandra-hart…
An excellent piece!
(P.S. I personally love "unlikeable" characters. I am also drawn to [and always dated] non-traditional beauty--the person no one else finds attractive, yet they are irresistible to you. #MSWL)
Little known fact about me (that often embarrassed me when I was a kid):
I grew up eating venison 3+ times per week. My father was a farmer and a hunter, and he fed our family, farm to table, range to table.
So now, I am always intrigued to receive ag/hunting stories. #mswl
Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmellIn romances, if your characters are infertile, they don't need miracle pregnancy to have a happy ending. Nor does your plus size heroine need to lose a weight, your disabled character be "cured" or your plain character become hot.
Let your characters find happiness as they are.
And when you write that story, please consider me. My query box reopens February 1. #MSWL
Sleeping Calliope @carnivalbonesA common words in the English language today, nightmare, actually has its origins in a scary creature from Scandinavian folklore. #FolkloreThursday
A female Vette known as Mare would bring bad dreams to people by sitting on them while they slept. pic.twitter.com/42F82CLy6R
Terrifying! (And I want a book starring Mare. #MSWL)
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaI know seeing Bad Queer Lit Takes on Twitter gets really anxiety inducing for authors, so lemme tell you as someone who gets piles of requests for very specific queer recs every day: all the things you fear no one wants are wanted very badly by somebody.
My favorite novels are literary stories focused on family, relationships, sexuality, mental illness, or recovery.
In particular, stories that explore sexuality are near + dear to my heart. I needed those stories when I was a teen (and still need/love/want them today) #MSWL

(Ha! I have to admit I love the sordid details of this alleged scandal from start to finish. It would make a GREAT novel, and then a dramedy on HBO! Who would play the lover? Who would play the wife (she would make a GREAT protagonist)? And who is the true power player? #MSWL)
