Gail Carriger @gailcarrigerThere is a (not small) part of me that wants to write this as an intergalactic sapphic bounty hunter romance. https://twitter.com/gailcarriger/status/1712272100382146781/photo/1
#MSWL times a billion, my guys.
Since @shaherazadshelf is opening to unsolicited submissions next week, Heather and I are really looking forward to fantasy, dystopian, and romance in nearly all genres.
To read Heather's MSWL, check her pinned @inkbyomari and you can find my MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/samiha-hoque/

It’s Strictly season (AKA the best season of all) and I have a REALLY specific #mswl request for any #romantasy authors and agents out there: I would LOVE to read a book that captures the EXACT vibes of this frozen rumba ❄️
Oh, hey there! Editor @HCI_Books here. #agents and #writers send me your proposals for books that connect food-body-environment. Or maybe just body-environment. Or maybe just body-exercise. Loving these topics right now! #nonfiction #MSWl #publishing #gimme #writingcommmunity
#MSWL A character dealing with the 5 stages of grief, but as a secondary theme (is not the main story of the book, but plays a major role in the conclusion of the story)
