Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈
starting with the non-romance line:
**stuff that keeps you on the literal edge of your seat
**stuff that makes you ~fear~ it could actually happen bc it's so twisted but also based in fact
**rip something from the headlines & get creative
Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharptaking a quick break from editing to post a few #mswl wishes!
I can't tweet everything I want here, so please don't take this as a complete list
remember I am an EDITOR not an agent--please research the publisher I work for before sending, make sure we're a fit
here we go...
YA - I will consider ANYTHING that's YA, but more specifically...
**fantasy--ALL types, yes even paranormal
**also something spooky, I want chills when I read
**and sci-fi - I particularly like sci-fi with a thriller element and it has to have a lot of action/adventure
still on YA:
*mystery/thrillers w/ atypical narrative structure and/or mixed media formats
*paranormal that feels fresh
*anything with a high-stakes plot
*fairytale retellings that feel fresh
*smart contemporary that makes me laugh and cry
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊
a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook
Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp#MSWL - for example, re: aliens: a book I read recently that I really enjoyed was EXO by Fonda Lee. The alien angle in that was intriguing.
#MSWL - YA sci-fi - mystery/thriller vibe is always a plus. Also has to have romance. Snappy, witty, sharp characters. Unique worldbuilding.
