merry crisis @captainstephWhen is anyone going to send me queer Sherlock Holmes stories to publish it's 2019 and he's public domain monetize ur fics for gods sake
#mswl! I love TRULY DEVIOUS, so make me a queer Sherlock Holmes or Truly Devious.
Hi Twitterverse: thrilled to announce I'm scouting for Hill Nadell agency in LA. Here's my #mswl: Literary fiction (broad, I know); thrillers with great character development and female leads (think Tana French); memoirs with a focus on the natural world (think H Is for Hawk) 📚
Send all the books my way. My end of year agent #MSWL includes literary fiction that is compulsively readable, stories that make me shed both sad & happy tears, suspenseful smart plots set in unexpected places, and characters that come of age in the glitz and glam of NYC. ❤️

Chuck Wendig @ChuckWendigWATCHMEN was as close to a perfect season as you can get. Aren't many of those. An astonishing accomplishment. I don't need more of it -- I hope if they choose to do more it is because of a vision that refuses to be contained to obscurity and demands to be made manifest.
Good morning if you have "A vision that refuses to be contained to obscurity and demands to be made manifest" that's my #MSWL.

I had 2 crazy weeks worth of editor meetings in NYC! Here are some repeat asks I heard from editors: #mswl
- PBs that work well for holidays but r not holiday specific (eg book with bunny protag that works for Easter)
- Commercial, accessible math-themed picture books...

Thousands of people gather outside Beaumont Hospital in Michigan to put on a light show for the children at the hospital each night of the holiday season so they know they haven’t been forgotten.
I love this 😭❤

As promised, here's my #MSWL for January. As ever I am particularly keen to hear from voices that have historically been unheard in the industry. Looking forward to coming back to lots of fabulous queries!
