Hey writer friends!
I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!
Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…
California Sun @mmcphateHere's a young Julia Morgan, the first woman licensed to practice architecture in California. Born in Oakland on this week in 1872, she designed more than 700 buildings of almost every type, including one of California's grandest structures: Hearst Castle. calif.sn/wvvw pic.twitter.com/Ez2oN7qygR
Finally updated my profile on the official #MSWL website. You can see the genres I'm acquiring including a few new ones including horror, suspense/thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, and I'm expanding into YA, MG and some nonfiction. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sari…
I've been getting some really wonderful nonfiction queries, so keep 'em coming! Recent books I've loved are Sarah Smarsh's HEARTLAND & Victoria Johnson's AMERICAN EDEN, while books I'm looking forward to include Casey Cep's FURIOUS HOURS & Robert Macfarlane's UNDERLAND. #mswl
Kat Enright @katenrightSo it’s been a while since I did a #MSWL thread, and I’m stuck in the car, so now seems as good a time as any! pic.twitter.com/xf6B32GAhT
Just as a reminder, I am open to MG and YA of all categories, Adult SFF, Adult Romance, and select nonfiction. For my static #MSWL and sub guidelines, please check out my website. Link in bio!
And I'm also really craving some MG or YA narrative nonfiction. Something a middle grader or teen can really relate to--a true story that has resonance in their modern lives. A commercial story with curriculum appeal (not other way around). The 57 Bus was a recent fave #mswl
2019 #MSWL: a fantasy or sf romance with the depth of plot, character & worldbuilding of Nalini Singh's fab books. Nonfiction like THE BUTCHERING ART. Smart, fun not-guilty-pleasure reading like CRAZY RICH ASIANS. Great YA epic fantasy (and contemporary).
Hi all! Here is my current #mswl! In short, I'm focused on developing four areas of my clientele in 2019: (1) PB author-illustrators; (2) MG fiction; (3) Graphic novels; and (4) Nonfiction across all kid lit genres. Hit me up, queryers! cleliagore.com/2019/01/11/201…
For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.
Also, please, as ever: any "big think" nonfiction. I'm fascinated by investigative journalism (I loved DREAMLAND by Sam Quinones); tech, pop science, pop psychology, and anything with a feminist lens (currently reading GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister & loving it). #MSWL
