Currently watching Brooklyn and taking a break from work, and OMG I'M LOVING THIS MOVIE!! 😭 Why am I such a romantic slub recently? I love this. Can I have a Historical like it?! PLEASE?! #MSWL YA or Adult, I totally don't care. 😭😭😭
#MSWL I would REALLY love a well-crafted historical/art mystery for MG (something in the vein of Legends of the Hidden Temple/National Treasure) OR adult audiences (think thorough research, clever hooks). I want the audience to solve along.
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaIt's pretty quiet today at @bookendslit (okay it's dead), so I think today would be good for some #MSWL In this #thread and throughout the day.
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPixWays fantasy can be dynamic without relying on Tolkien-inspired landscapes, creatures, or Chosen One tropes:
- Add a second power to the world that isn't humans. Be creative with this: perhaps the king must confer with the birds or frogs before charging to war.
More about my adult fantasy #MSWL - Query me if your story fits!
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix#MSWL high stakes, character driven fantasy w/intricately realized worlds, unique fantasy/magical systems&new creatures. Fun, original political systems, visually dynamic settings, characters with emotions that rip me from my life and plunge me into the pages.
Still looking for that perfect adult fantasy project! Query me if you've got it! #MSWL
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13okay, #writers, I'm gonna do a #HistoricalFiction (#HF) #MSWL tonight. Hold on to your hats! #amagenting pic.twitter.com/h7HmHnCHOp
If I missed your #SFFpit pitch, send query & 1st 5 pages in body of email: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. Adult: fantasy, thriller, contemporary romance, rom-com, mystery & sci-fi. YA: fantasy, sci-fi, horror, contemporary, thriller, historical & mystery. #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFanSo, fortunately and unfortunately, I have SO MANY fantasy and sci-fi projects that I've signed and that I still have to read and decide, which means I'll probably only like maybe one or two #sffpit pitches today. I'm sorry! But the rest of #TeamCorvisiero will be out in force! pic.twitter.com/INYAOgs8jG
In addition to this, I'm looking for some great YA and adult contemporaries and contemporary romances! 🎉 Also, I'm still on the lookout for a MG author to add to #TheFellowship! ❤️ So if you have something that matches my #MSWL, shoot me a query with the MSWL mention! 😁
And, as always, #MSWL utterly gripping literary or upmarket commercial adult fiction - be in speculative or historical or contemporary - with strong stories rooted in secrets.
Brooks Sherman @byobrooksHi all, after walking around NOLA with @runwithskizzers and refreshing my memory about the infamous Casket Girls (look them up!), I’m officially putting it out there that I would love love LOVE a YA novel that is a vampire version of The Craft. #mswl 😱💀🌙
Oh, yeah: This could be for the adult category, too. Basically, just give me scary, atmospheric vampire stories. 😁 #mswl
As of this week, my query box is pretty much empty! Perfect time to get your queries in!
Looking for: Diverse YA contemporary, YA horror (scary/psychological), YA + Adult historical fiction (early American, 15-16th century european), and Adult romance (no erotica)!
Laura Crockett @LECrockettVery specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl
Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!
Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl
