#QueryUpdate-- I'm all caught up on all queries, and reading/enjoying my last three submissions. I've updated my #MSWL on our website, and would love to see your query if you have something that fits. Just go here: querymanager.com/query/jmcgowan
KYAMONGER @_mechinariessingle mom is forced to go on an Adventure to rescue her hero son.... turns out she's actually pretty good at being a hero herself?? pic.twitter.com/cpxTDRueia
Uh, I'm super into this. #MSWL
Micro Flash Fiction @MicroFlashFic“I should learn how to can food.”
“My grandma was into that.”
“What did she can?”
“She never gave you anything?”
“No. She has tons of unlabeled jars. I wasn’t allowed near them.”
“Did you ask?”
“Once. She said she’d tell me when I was old enough. But she never did.”
👁️Trevor👁️ @slimyswampghostOh, to be attending the annual festival celebrating the founding of a small seaside fishing town amidst reports of local swimmers going missing, and strange creatures being seen on the nearby beach at midnight
The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozeI’m never not thinking about St. Werburgh (died 699), who raised a beloved goose from the dead after it had already been eaten by her foe and digested. The bones took on flesh and the goose returned to life “with a glad honk.” pic.twitter.com/9Soh7dtmRo
#MSWL THIS is the retelling I'm waiting for.
Barlow Adams @BarlowAdams9: Can I sleep with you?
9: Had a dream about the Lullaby Lady.
9: An old woman with no skin on her hands.
M: Why do you call her that?
9: Because she stands next to your bed and hums while you sleep.
M: Sure, just let Daddy put the house up for sale real quick.
Pretty much any weird, creepy, unsettling thing your kid comes up with unprovoked is on my #MSWL. 🤷🏽♀️
The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozethings to ask yourself at a party:
• where are the bookshelves
• where are the exits
• who poisoned the wine
• who wanted the hostess dead and why
• does the killer think they can outwit you, the greatest detective in the world
Amber Sparks🪓 @ambernoelleFour-year-old: *coloring* I’m drawing a princess
Four-year-old: Her dress is covered with pictures of all her memories
Four-year-old: She’s making a worried face, because the dress is almost out of room and then there will be no more memories
I am actively digging through my inbox looking for: #MSWL

beth phelan, here sometimes @beth_phelanI’ve been invited to a Halloween wedding and i don’t know what to wear that’s cute but still that vibe like yeah I’m great at costumes
I never thought I'd want a wedding story, but, #MSWL. Also, my dream life actually?? 👻
kelly andrew @KayAyDrewI was just told by someone in my life that no one cares about reading d/Deaf or HoH own voices stories, and that I'm "barking up the wrong tree."
Maybe he was right, but I've never in my life been more motivated to prove anyone wrong.
Massive respect for the Deaf and HoH community! My college ASL Classes and time spent in the local community was an incredibly welcoming experience and I’d love to be a part of uplifting these stories. #MSWL
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixJumping on this @bookendslit #MSWL pile of awesomeness! I'm still desperate for my contemp YA updated Girl: Interrupted (NOT SFF for this). Mental health, mental health, mental health.
Also seeking MG SFF.
I'd love to see some new adult space opera with #ownvoices elements! twitter.com/AgentJessicaA/…
