So! In the #MSWL I’ve shared with agents, I include a section for ‘keywords.’ These are descriptive words that spark my interest immediately whenever I see them in fic pitches: dark, psychological, haunting, eerie, chilling, propulsive, disturbing, suspenseful. You get the idea.
Loan Le @loanloanOkay, my MSWL. As an editor, I’m forever trying to recapture the joy of my favorite reads, and I’ll share a SLIVER of them here. These are not the ONLY books I’d want to see in my inbox, but I hope it’s a bit clearer than some standard bios of mine out there. (2/?) twitter.com/loanloan/statu…
Update: I was on a pleasure-reading spree last week, and the novels that held my attention was following a pattern, so I'll elaborate on what I love about #fiction in a few . . . Agents, I hope this will be helpful. #mswl #publishing
Michael Specks @MichaelSpecks#Amwriting community, saw this & had to share. A heartwarming response & a bad-ass #writing prompt. Imagine a post-apocalyptic novel in which the only survivors left on earth are the ones who were tagged before the explosion. Could be titled The Loved Ones. 10/10 would read. pic.twitter.com/ddmIMD2JnX
#MSWL for sure!
