This City of Lies is another of the many "CIty" books that have been attracting attention lately, and I am rebelling against this by seeking books that have "Unincorporated Township" in the title. Like "Unincorporated Township of Applesauce" - great title for my new #mswl book
My #mswl now includes a fantasy set in a riding school, from the POV of one of the teachers, with at least one of the horses named Applesauce.
And I am so not kidding. @awfulagent hosted editors from a major sf imprint for lunch today. This is the synthesis.
Henrietta Rose-Innes🎲 @HenriettaRISealed flask containing a witch, c 1850. Obtained from old woman in village near Hove, Sussex, around 1915. She remarked: "They do say there be a witch trapped in it, and if you let un out there'll be a peck 'o trouble."

Lauren Spieller wants you to VOTE @laurenspiellerI want a book about a character like Ambrose Spellman--kind, gifted, tortured, and definitely queer af. #mswl pic.twitter.com/osCH2n4ICu
He's also a person of color--I shouldn't leave that out, b/c it's important to understanding his character.
Not that the show seems to understand that. #mswl

Authors! I am still looking for that dark YA contemporary, thriller, suspense, or mystery. I'm DYING to find something in one of these genres. Which is why I'm desperate enough to say if you've written ANYTHING in these genres please SEND IT OVER ... before December 1st 🙂#mswl

Vanessa Lanang is procrastinating. @VanessaLanang@Donovanesque Do you have a preference between 1st person and close 3rd? I can write both but I feel I get so much more into the voice in 1st person.
Hi Vanessa! I have a slight preference for close 3rd because I find I usually fall in love with the hero when I'm in his POV. But if a 1st person manuscript can still give me moments where I understand his thoughts & feelings and scenes that make me melt, that's great. 🙂 #MSWL
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinI know this is very specific, but I'd like a MG or YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've been thinking about this for years... #MSWL
