Kortney Price @kortney_priceThese elements can include character, theme, atmosphere, grit, style, voice, setting, world building.....any craft element that you want to highlight.
For example, "My story combines the humor of Shannon Hale's Austenland with the heart and action of Kenneth Oppel's Airborn in this MG role playing adventure gone wrong" (#MSWL, btw)
I would also like to see some heart-achey MG contemporary that doesn’t shy away from big issues. Socially and politically engaged, with humor and joy and hope but also courage and realness and empathy. #MSWL
Deborah Nemeth @DebNemethI am super interested in acquiring romcom manuscripts this year, especially ones that are tightly written with snappy dialogue! #MSWL twitter.com/CarinaPress/st…
My interest in lighthearted romance and romcoms extends to male/male romance and romantic suspense and capers, of all heat levels, and historical & paranormal romances too. I'm also interested in humorous cozy mysteries. Make me laugh! #MSWL
I still desperately need a Women's Fiction or Romance or even just Contemporary like The Bold Type! Friendship and female bosses galore! And HUMOR! All the laugh out loud lines, please! #MSWL
#MSWL for YA:
~ a FAUST retelling
~ a plot that brings to mind Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
~ Grumpy antiheroes who can't seem to be evil (despite how they try) / humor is a plus!
