Bumping my #MSWL post from March since it still applies. I'm especially looking for historical romance, cozy and historical mysteries, and nonfiction. #amquerying and #amwriting authors, send me your lovelies!
I would love to see some really grounded sci-fi in my query inbox, the kind where you come to care deeply about the characters and their relationships. Basically, I want something that reminds me of watching Battlestar Galactica. #mswl
verytiredhuman @jennykim212listening to @raceandfood talk about the whiteness of travel writing, and how when POC get to write about travel, it's only within the context of immigration/refugees. Decolonize travel writing ugh yes!
I would love a book-length project on this topic. *hint hint* #mswl
Rachel E. Gross @rachelegrossHer editors had no interest in sending her to the front lines. So WWII journalist Virginia Irwin joined the Red Cross and went anyways: smithsonianmag.com/history/virgin… via @SmithsonianMag
Someone PLEASE write about Virginia Irwin and then query me. It's a story that would work in both fiction and nonfiction. #MSWL
Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraOn May 1 each year, in a tradition dating back to the 16th century, the residents of Hastings, England throw a parade where a man adorned in a cloak of leaves and a flower crown leads a group of dancers, monsters, spirits, and samba bands around town trib.al/8ZtsJxI
#MSWL for sure
#MSWL Madness continues over on the BookEnds blog, and my post is up today! Go take a peek to get an idea of what I'm currently looking for. #amwriting #amquerying
Amanda Jain @wensday95If I don't see your pitch but you think we'd be a good match, feel free to query. I rep adult romance, mystery, women's fiction, upmarket and literary fiction, as well as nonfiction. I no longer rep children's books (YA and below).
There are hints of springtime in the air, so I'd love to see some outdoorsy romance or women's fiction. Give me competing archaeologists, park rangers, adventure guides, farmer's market rivals, anything! #mswl #mswlmadness
