Vee Signorelli 🏳️⚧️📖 @findmereadingwait now I’m inspired. 😤 Would any Queer YA authors (or creators of any queer media in general) be interested in writing a short, affirming piece for queer fans that might be reeling from the end of Supernatural? Esp the teens? We could feature them in a round-up on YA Pride.
If anyone feels inspired . . . or wants to make this into a book . . . and maybe uh #MSWL 🙃
Sizwe sikaMusi @SizweLoGary Webb was an American investigative journalist who reported how the CIA flooded the small Black neighbourhood of South Central, LA with crack cocaine in order to finance a coup in Nicaragua. He was found dead with 2 bullets in the head. His death was ruled a suicide
Today's #MSWL is a heist story. Young adult (like SIX OF CROWS) or adult (like MONEY HEIST), or even MG (for which I can't think of an example)—I want to see the mastermind behind the planning, the action, the drama, the romance that blossoms with danger around every turn!
Catherine Cho’s memoir about her time with postpartum psychosis is achingly beautiful. It delves into the intricacies of motherhood and mental health and deals beautifully and empathetically with an incredibly difficult topic. Please send me books like this! #MSWL
And in other news: stay tuned for more SUPER exciting news about my authors Jon and Emily Jordan's THE WAR QUEENS about extraordinary women who led their nations in combat! #calltheelection #certifyTheVote #quotes #mswl #literaryagent #history #books #COVID19 #Covid_19
Brenna “ACAB” English✨Loeb @benglishhhHello sweet writers! I will be closing to queries at the end of the month, so if you were planning on submitting to me (via query manager, I delete things that come into my inbox unrequested) this is your metaphorical five minute warning!
I'll be updating this thread over the next few days with #mswl thoughts and ideas as they occur to me, and I'll start with saying that if you have a western, especially a historical one featuring queer and/or BIPOC characters, please hit me up!
HBO Max @hbomaxIYKYK, Carol. #Superintelligence premieres November 26 on HBO Max.
I realize the vagueness of this #mswl, but I adore Melissa McCarthy with my whole being and I'd love to see some subs featuring protagonists that live with the same kind of heart, humor, and joy.
Laura (Closed to Queries) Zats @LZatsMy little treat to myself today is rewriting my #mswl. I think you’re all in for some fun surprises 😉
MC: *frantically looking for something in their room*
Alex: *sends message that MC left it in the kitchen*
MC: *grateful but refuses to show it* ALEX! Aren’t you supposed to NOT interfere???
Alex: What’s the point of watching you struggle??😭
Humor all around #MSWL
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiOkay hear me out....YA novel w/ MC who somehow meets the FBI agent (or whatever group) assigned to monitor/watch MC (like how we all have one) and hilarity ensues. Agent is just trying to be helpful (like whenever MC is looking for something) and MC just so annoyed? #MSWL
MC talking to themself or someone else: I’d really love to get ____
Agent: *helpfully sends links to sites that sell it*
MC: LEAVE. ME. ALONE. ALEX. Or I’ll expose you!
Agent: I’m just trying to help 🥺🥺
Genuine friendship eventually ensues. They meet in person someday #MSWL

Still looking for book proposals from published romance authors for a cute G-rated gay Hallmark romance.
*not a coming-out story
*supportive families, friends
*clear conflict: rivals to romance, second chance?
*being gay is not the conflict
Kayla Ruble @RubleKBI can confirm from texts shown to me that Wayne County Republican canvasser says she‘s received threats post-meeting.
She says they’ve come from both sides, the right & the left, specifically Antifa from Grosse Pointe.
Yes, Michiganders, you read that last part correctly
GROSSE POINTE ANTIFA!!
ardo is writing @ArdoOmerGreat panel. I love Souvankham so much. When asked how you should end a story, she said it should devastate the reader and this is the energy I admire.
Jack: "Sou is stone cold" re: her endings
"Books that are devastating to put down" is literally in my #MSWL. Souvankham doesn't know me, nor that she so often speaks the words that are in my heart. 💜
I am VERY INTO the upcoming Kristen Stewart LGBTQIA+ Christmas movie and want to just drown myself in it. But I also want to read about bff Dan Levy finding love too; someone please give me a Dan Levy romcom. #MSWL
