For those #amquerying I updated my #MSWL. And #pubtip, if you're wondering if your manuscript is too long--it probably is. 65k-95k is average imho. Thank you wonderful writers--it's hard out there but we're looking for you! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lori…
Looking for stories of joy where identity isn't the focus; rich, atmospheric writing w/ culture & magic; rom coms; novels w/ incredible hooks that can be pitched in one sentence; highly engaging reads w/ an unforgettable voice or unforgettable plot (ideally both!) #mswl
I'm prioritizing projects by and about BIPOC and underrepresented voices. Within that, particularly interested in projects with intersectionality, trans and disability rep, and ANYTHING by Native, First Nations and Indigenous authors. #mswl
“Unique, genre-blending romance novels. For example, I wish I had worked on The Plus One by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom-com in space, or with magic.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

"He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world..." - #MSWL

Elizabeth Law @elawreadsYou know what we're seeing now that's positive? Rather than a picture book bio per se, picture books about a portion of someone's life, about a new art movement, the invention of something, a [fill in the blank] or moment that changed history. #Kidlitchat
