The SFF book I just can't stop thinking/talking about: The Bird King by G. Willow Wilson. She is a masterful storyteller. Anything similar to this type Muslim fantasy is on my #mswl. #FridayReads goodreads.com/blog/show/1652…
Leah Spann @LeahSpannHappy Friday, all! Excited to say that my editorial #MSWL page went live today! I'm only open to agented submissions, but if you want to know what kind of books I'm interested in seeing, give it a look:

Agents, if you have a fantasy manuscript with that kind of dark but whimsical tone, I WANT TO SEE IT

Jessica Reino @JNRlitauthor#WritingCommunity thank you all so much for your well wishes. Here is a link to @MetamorphLitAg submissions page metamorphosisliteraryagency.com/submissions. I’ll also tweet my #mswl in a thread below:
#AntiMSWL & #MSWL I prefer contemporary over historical romance unless the historical has some REALLY nifty hook, though I dig fantasy in a feudal setting. I don’t rep picture books and rarely chapter books, but I’m all about middle grade (with upper MG my sweet spot!)
Sam Morgan @samroebuckWanna query me? Hit me up at:
smquery at lottsagency dot com
Things to include:
Query pasted into email
Up to first three chapters (either pasted or attached, but attachments get weird so be careful)
So yeah all you beautiful people doing #mswl and #amwriting and #amquerying send me all your adult fantasy and sci-fi and horror and amazing commercial fiction. Still looking for the same stuff and my tastes have only gotten better.
"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Lindsay Landgraf Hess @LindsayLHess@laurenspieller What are you hoping to see in your slush inbox in the coming months, anything in particular?
My #mswl is pretty extensive, but I really want more MG, adult thrillers, and crossover/adult SFF
Officially have my own Manuscript Wish List profile! And I already found one typo and there are certainly more which is why I will not get mad at your accidental typos in queries (we're all just people!). #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/erin…
Laura Crockett @LECrockettI loved THE BIRD & THE BLADE, now I’m reading Elizabeth Bear (RANGE OF GHOSTS) for the first time—and I think what I’m loving most about these fantasies: Khan. Great Khan, Genghis Khan, Mongol Empire, Song Dynasty, Silk Road, history across the steppes & China—I want it. #mswl
If you have a historical, fantasy, or historical fantasy manuscript in adult or YA that fits this era and/or setting, or is inspired by this era and/or setting, please send to me! I want more non-Euro stories like this. #mswl
#mswl #mood In the mood 4 a SFF mystery written by a poc or lgbtq+ author(or both) that conjures Baldwin, Carey & Gaiman, includes kaiju & swords & has a Crichton/Aeryn Sun &/or 500 Days of Summer-esque romantic subplot as well.
😁😂😁😂 Can that even be a mood? Lmao
Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, & humor. #diversity #MSWL
A Woman Reading @AWomanReadingI went to an #escapegame room over the weekend and I'm obsessed. Literally read everything I could about them. I'd heard about these before but... I can't wait to try another! Who do I know that loves these as much as me? pic.twitter.com/GxHnHserc5
#mswl mystery, thriller or domestic suspense would be the natural 1st thought, but I'll take a look at romance, ya + fantasy or scifi too. Like... what if you escape from the #gameroom and you're now in the future or another dimension, or there are aliens or you don't exist, etc.
