I'd also love a #middlegrade or #yalit story featuring poor people, that is filled with joy & short on trauma. Not having money doesn't have to mean alcoholism, drug addiction, rape, mental illness, etc. Of course it CAN mean that but it doesn't HAVE to. Send me that story. #mswl
I want something that comps to Today, Tonight, Tomorrow by @rlynn_solomon. One of the things I love about this sweet, funny story is the tension & pace. The whole book happens in the course of 24 hours. It's a terrific enemies to lovers #romcom. Give me more of that energy! #mswl
I'm really trying to hone in on what kind of projects I'd love to see coming into my inbox, and (with the help of some of my lovely clients) here are some of the things I'd like to see... (a thread) #mswl #middlegrade #yalit #WritingCommunity #kidlit
Patrice Cobweb 🖤🕸🧛🏾♀️ @whimsicallyoursYAY!!! And, I'm so incredibly in love with Jonas's adult graphic novel of my dreams which is like Let the Right One In meets Inglorious Bastards (what a pitch, right 🔥). Black American WWII soldier. Vampire Countess. So much good 🙌🏿🧛🏿♀️ @NewLeafLiterary 🎉 twitter.com/mumblingmynah/…
jonas's query was literally like ppl keep saying they dont want vampires and you have in your bio send me vampire stuff and ive never been happier. i will always want your fresh vampire takes #mswl
Hey, #amquerying writers, some #MSWL items for my holiday wishlist...
🌈❄️ Holiday adult rom com. My heart yearns. Do want. Give them to me. I really—ok you get the drift.
🌈✨Adult fantasy reminiscent of GIDEON or PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE or THE ONCE & FUTURE WITCHES.
Nic Caws @NicolaCawsThis year I’ve started and become obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I know, only this year.) AND it’s got me longing to acquire some new romances for #HarlequinMedical 1/2 pic.twitter.com/wvDE1B8l41
AP Entertainment @APEntertainment"Now is the right time for us to laugh": Kristin Chenoweth (@KChenoweth) shares her excitement for the release of @Netflix's #Holidate. pic.twitter.com/j7MvHz8Xzq
Justin Brouckaert @JahBarchartNew website, stripped down to basics. This is your semi-regular reminder that yes, in fact, I WOULD love to read your novel!
Separately, I'm also taking on select editorial and collaborative projects. HMU justinbrouckaert.com
#MSWL official! Semi-regular reminder that I am on the hunt for novels that are NOT set in New York, novels that take bold chances with structure and form, funny novels, & novels that turn a thoughtful eye toward sports and athletic achievement. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/just…
Write For Harlequin @Write4HarlequinCommunity plays a significant role in many Harlequin romances. But how can you balance your story's focus between the leading couple and the secondary cast? Check out this post for these #HarlequinSpecialEdition authors’ tips! bit.ly/34zMbRi
As a grad of a performing arts high school I’d love to see a YA or New Adult novel about what happens when you love your art form but it doesn’t love you back in the way you expected. Think Larissa from I Wanna Be Where You Are. #MSWL
KATU News @KATUNewsOn November 9, 1970, a whale washed up on Oregon's Heceta Beach.
Three days later, that dead whale exploded into history with what has been described as the first-ever viral news story.
I am officially adding this to my #mswl
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✨
Anne Tibbets @AnneTibbetsI have finished The Queen's Gambit and I am bereft I cannot watch it again for the first time.
This was easily one of my favorite shows of the year and if you have any project like this in the YA or YA crossover space, I am HERE for it.
I read DEAR SWEET PEA last week and fell in love—it was the perfect balm for the stress. I would love to see more MG that balances a sweet and funny voice with more serious themes, and any submissions that could be comped to SWEET PEA! #MSWL
