#MSWL preferably as a romcom? 😅
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI am so appreciative of everybody answering my #MSWL for beautiful, heartbreaking books. I'd still love more of those but I'd also love to see some fun, escapist projects especially in YA.
I'm still wishing for more "girls in sports" novels, too. Soccer? Ice skating? Gymnastics? #MSWL
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaLooking forward to catching up on the agent subs & #DVpit queries currently in our TBR pile! I am reading some truly phenomenal projects right now.

LRB Bookshop @LRBbookshopjust had the director of london zoo in the shop. we gave him a free tote and he doffed his cap politely, revealing - imagine our surprise! - a tiny marmot squatting on his head. "marmot's day out" he winked
The Ripped Bodice @TheRippedBodiceThe captain of the US hockey team married her longtime rival, a member of the Canadian hockey team AND IM JUST WONDERING WHERE THE ROMANCE NOVEL ABOUT THIS IS?!
(Together they have four gold medals and 10 world titles congrats ladies you are inspiring in so many ways) twitter.com/mduggan10/stat…
Madly want! If you have a story like this, have your agent send it to me, please? #MSWL
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI will be posting a thread of #MSWL items for @amberjackpub later today. -Agents- may direct subs to email@example.com (include SUBMISSIONS in subject line). Gentle reminder to writers that this is not a pitching contest.
Another gentle reminder: The Amberjack publishing team as a whole is diverse (often intersectionally!) and women-led. While we welcome stories by all authors, we strongly encourage stories by authors of color and other underrepresented backgrounds. #MSWL
This is not an exhaustive #MSWL, so agents with projects in the spirit of this list can send those my way. Gentle reminder that we are open to AGENT-ONLY submissions at this time, but authors are welcome to refer to their agents to us if they see a good prospective fit.
