rebecca mix says drink water @rebeccarmixI’ve never been much of a rereader, but I’m rereading the Gregor The Overlander books for the first time. I was completely obsessed with in elementary school, and omg, this feels like coming home. 😭
#MSWL I’d LOVE a MG adventure story comped to Gregor The Overlander
Watching Maleficent and goodness do I want a flawed and broken main character like her!!! Omg, I love this movie so much. Having a BA woman like her in a manuscript is totally down my alley! #MSWL
Magdalyn Ann Is Revising @MagdalynAnn@literallycait And this is the part where I wish I were closer to the end of revisions on my wlw siren pirate fantasy 😭
Where are my super buff lady protagonists? I'm not talking rogue-buff, I'm talking barbarian-buff. I adore Catra and Beau and I'm delighted to see queries with women like them, but also where are my protags built like She-Ra and Yasha? #mswl
Here's a #mswl: I love all the stealthy, crafty, swift, creative, highly trained and skilled ladies I see in queries fighting with all manner of imaginative weapons. But there's still a lack of female characters wielding weapons that require brute strength.
Caitlin McDonald @literallycaitI will be reopening to queries on Monday, July 29th. Polish those pitches! In the meantime, I'll be tweeting some updates on what I am (and am not) looking for. #askagent #querytip
#MSWL: Novels that would fit right alongside works by Deborah Harkness, Jennifer Donnelly, Leigh Bardugo, Erin Morgenstern, Sandhya Menon, Libba Bray, Alexander Chee, Maggie Stiefvater, Nicola Yoon, & Jandy Nelson
#MSWL: Adult Fiction: family sagas, complex juicy historical (think The Crimson Petal & the White, Queen of the Night), female friendship stories, Millennial fiction (think Sally Rooney or Casey McQuiston)
#MSWL: YA & Adult Fiction - magical realism, southern Gothic, Gothic, vampires, fantasy of all kinds (especially in need of a contemporary fantasy), retellings, rom coms
So happy to be featured in @scbwi's July newsletter! I'm actively taking on new clients--check out the interview to see what's high on my #mswl and learn more about me as an agent: scbwi.org/scbwi-exclusiv… #amagenting #querytip
My friends daughter drew this beautiful unicorn princess for me. She knows me so well. I think there is a #mswl In here somewhere.
