#mswl how has this not been novelized!
see previous retweet: I could go for a reindeer herder novel (reflective antler paint optional but encouraged) #mswl
i'm picturing #ownvoices, maybe a coming-of-age. I feel like the setting could make for a great suspense. and/or something that engages with climate change...
Anarchopac @anarchopacWhy is some people's idea of interesting alternative history what if the Nazis won when they could be thinking about what if John Brown went on a successful slave owner killing rampage?
seriously. who's out there writing alt-history where something went right? (or at least, not wrong in the way that we know it?) #mswl
Not sure exactly what form this would take but here’s a #mswl item a colleague and I were talking about: writing that tangles with how children of immigrants/people who immigrate as children can end up feeling caught between countries and cultures, not feeling at home anywhere
It's #MSWL day and I forgot! Typical. Time to stare at my bookshelf and name-drop some favorites...hit me up if you're the "next"
Carmen Maria Machado (light on the actual horror though)
Ferrante, aka messy female friendship, the holy grail
I'm not very good at pithy #mswl but this is easy enough: the next kevin wilson
(short stories or in the vein of NOTHING TO SEE HERE which is excellent, forthcoming, and should jump to the top of everyone's tbr pile as soon as it's out)
Okay, it's time for a work-related tweet: I'm open for queries! I'm an omnivore agent actively seeking fiction clients 📚
