#MSWL A character dealing with the 5 stages of grief, but as a secondary theme (is not the main story of the book, but plays a major role in the conclusion of the story)

"I’d love to see more revenge stories. It could be a scorned lover, a group of friends avenging someone's death, a sister story, or anything similar. If your character is in their villain era, send it my way!"

I'm getting lots of lovely fantasy submissions in my query inbox, but a reminder to any #amquerying writers that I am looking for very accessible literary books too: think very emotional women in their early twenties.

Anything that feels like a song from GUTS, basically.

More of this tambourine side-eye energy in picture book submissions, please! This closeup is from Mr. S by Monica Arnaldo, which is so funny and memorable. #mswl

20. Please do not email me your query or use the contact form on my website, where it clearly states not to use it to query me. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ If I’ve asked you to email me your query material, that’s ok, but cold queries must come in via Query Manager.

19. My query inbox opens SO SOON! I will announce it here and in other platforms as well as on my website, and I’ll add to this thread the submission link as soon as possible. Here are some guidelines in the meantime:

18. Three very important elements in opening pages for me are voice, tension, & curiosity! These are a MUST if I’m going to potentially request more material. Less backstory and world building, more scene action & character. Surprise me! Give me something I MUST keep reading for.

17. I *DO* want to see diversity in my inbox and in the world. *DO* send me LGBTQIA+ stories, diversity in families, etc.

I’m good with swears in books if it’s appropriately used/not overdone. Swearing for the sake of swearing in a πŸ“– is not my jam. (Even though I’m a swearer!)

16. My stance on AI: Do NOT send me anything generated by AI. That is not art, it’s a copout. AI is ok to do research but in no way, shape, or form should it be used to β€œcreate” a story. Humans do the storytelling; AI steals it. My opinion. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
