I’m not closing to queries, but I am more behind than I’d like. Come January I’ll post my #MSWL mostly in mystery, suspense, upmarket, women’s & literary fiction. I also want select nonfiction.
I’m on the hunt for great business books with an original angle that both educate and entertain. Think NO FILTER by @sarahfrier and INVISIBLE WOMEN by @CCriadoPerez . Demonstrable expertise/experience is a must when querying for nonfiction.
Cecilia Lyra, Agent @ceciliaclyraAll right, #amquerying writers—let’s talk FAVE RECENT READS because what better way is there for you to get to know my taste? Are one of these titles a comp for your story? Is your writing style similar to one of these authors? If so, please query me! 🙋🏽♀️ #WritingCommunity
For nonfiction I adored HOOD FEMINISM by @Karnythia — in fact, I often quote her when offending misogynists (one of my fave activities 😇). Send me your feminist nonfiction, especially if they examine race, sexual orientation, and class! Let’s offend misogynists together! 😈
Hey, hopeful writers looking to become published authors, I would love to see more #OwnVoices versions of #Fiction, #Nonfiction, #ChildrensBooks and #GraphicNovels! Writing hand Send onward, via tridentmediagroup.com/submissions, thanks! Folded hands #WritingCommunity #MSWL #NaNoWriMo

-hist fic (sry)
-anything LGBTQ esp! BIPOC stories and memoirs
-poli sci literally anything
-epic fantasy (I have a lot atm... may change later)
I'd love to see more nonfiction in my query inbox; "my favorite nonfiction books expand my view of the world; provide an unconventional perspective on a conventional topic; are rigorously reported and researched; weave in personal interest; read like a novel." #MSWL
My doctor just told me about the 12th century physicians of Salerno: the usual Greek/Latin men plus Jews, Muslims, and women! They pooled their knowledge and practiced science-based medicine. BUT then they disappeared. Gotta be a story there. #mswl #historicalfiction or #NF
David Beard @dabeardShe discovered that flying squirrels turn pink under UV light.
Paula Anich was checking squirrel hides when she thought, hmm, what about this platypus over here?

I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨
My head is swirling around random thoughts today, but you know what I’d love to see in my inbox???? A sarcastic and wonderful holiday book: nonfiction—cooking book or DIY decorations and their meanings (love learning about traditions) or fiction—YA rom-com. #MSWL
I drink it when I’m sick or sad or cold... I adore almost all tea (particularly earl grey de la creme!). I also love learning about tea! This book teaches about the history, methods of preparation, and I loved reading it. #MSWL fiction or nonfiction about tea!
Victor LaValle @victorlavalleI would watch a show that was based on true stories of cops fabricating evidence and sending people to jail.
This isn’t a joke tweet.
I think it would gain an enormous audience, both hating & loving it.
More importantly it would serve a public good.
#MSWL This as a book, fiction or non-fiction

Thank you Megan. Here is a great article for anyone just starting to think of getting an agent. Also a reminder I need to update my #MSWL — still seeking women & BIPOC authors in nonfiction. #WritingCommunity
