I'm giving away a query critique as part of this interview I did for Literary Rambles! Thanks for having me, @NatalieIAguirre. You can find the interview, read about my #mswl, and learn how to enter here: tinyurl.com/yxwa4pd4
The Book of V is an insightful, multi POV and multi timeline story that connects three women, including Esther and Vashti from The Bible. I adore stories that take these ancient tales and connect them with modern stories. Please send me more! #MSWL!
Nicola @NicolaYoonAnd the secret’s out! Beyond thrilled to announce that I co-write a novel with 5 of my favorite writers ever! Swoony love stories with Black kids falling for each other during a NYC blackout! @brownbookworm @angiecthomas @WriteinBK @getnicced @AshWrites
This sounds AMAZING! I can't wait to read it. And (I've been saying this A LONG TIME NOW) querying authors–particularly Black authors–please send me your love stories! I'm dying for YA romance & romcoms by Black people and other people of color. #mswl
Elizabeth Kilcoyne @eakilcoyneI talk a lot about how pretty WAKE THE BONES is but there's plenty of gore, too. I'm going through the line edits right now on a scene that makes my teeth ache... and not in a sweet, fluffy kind of way.
Not only is this very true, but also “very pretty with plenty of gore, too,” is my forever #MSWL.
Diana ➡️ Occasionally Awarewolf @SuperdillinThe amount of people who are commenting that they'd watch a show about us being a wholesome family of jocks and their adopted nerd lass has brought me back from the dead I swear
There’s got to be a book in this somewhere, and I want it (thread) #MSWL
How about a #middlegrade or #YAlit that kind of comps to A Night at the Museum, only set in the Louvre or the Guggenheim or something? Even better if it's written by/about #BIPOC! #mswl #WritingCommunity #kidlit #scbwi
I would loooove to work on something similar to THE HAUNTED LAKE, which is a really unique, spooky, folktale-feeling picture book. (Except I'd prefer something with a shorter length.) Send those spooky stories my way! #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
Jada Yuan @jadabirdSome truly exciting news: my grandmother, Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu, is going to be on a Forever stamp from the U.S. Postal Service. She was a nuclear physicist who helped disprove a fundamental law of nature and changed a field dominated by men. We’re so grateful for the honor. pic.twitter.com/cIL23tki80
Hi someone write this PB for me! #mswl
“When it comes to cookbooks, I love unique projects from platformed authors that explore topics that are hard to find in the bookstore, or haven't been explored at all.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Terese Mason Pierre @teresempierreWhat I love and want to see is more Canadian writers journeying into speculative literature. Dystopia. Time travel. Ghosts. Alternate realities. Talking animals. Portal fantasies. Witches. Everything is a dream except it's not. Give it to me.
Putting it out into the universe that I’d love more historical romances centering on Black, Indigenous & POC written by BIPOC in my query inbox. Please & thank you 🙏 (bonus points if one of your character inspos is Dev Patel. Kidding... kind of.) #MSWL
