Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_GuanI can’t stop thinking about this.
Someone write me a reverse, PoC Howard Carter #SFF novel where cultural artifacts are repatriated to their rightful inheritors. Give me the fantasy or future tech inverse heist novel. #MSWL twitter.com/_iwakeli_i/sta…
I desperately want to go to space right now! I love warm, character-driven adventures a la Becky Chambers, and more sweeping space operas. Give me your ragtag crews and seemingly impossible odds, battles and hijinks (and..ahem...some romance) #MSWL
WeronikaJanczuk @WeronikaJanczukFor any of you who are looking to explore + wrap your minds around reflections on the structure of reality, + the way Reality informs imagination, I encourage so deeply the captivating world in @maxgladstone's THREE PARTS DEAD, the first of his Craft Sequence. (4/4)
(As I plan to re-open to queries on 05/01--#MSWL--I'll definitely be looking for fantasy & sci-fi with super distinct voices that draws on, reflects on/contemplates, and comments on reality; fiction manifests our lives, our imaginations, + I love encountering people through it.)
Three things right now:
1. Clinical books about how we can heal ourselves during this difficult time.
2. Books that offer a world of escapism such as fantasy and science fiction, etc.
3. Lighthearted and humorous books to lighten the mood.
#mswl request: #sff that's fun and light and voice-driven, with great characters, and maybe a little romance, and a really creative setting and plot. Send it on, folks; I'm getting caught up on my #query inbox. Bonus points if your characters get to leave their houses.
And @a_cochran says: I’m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesn’t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS
I’d 🖤 a scifi novel about all the aliens who’ve been quietly monitoring us for years who suddenly show up all at the same time when they start getting satellite images back of our planet after it went “quiet” due to coronavirus #MSWL so I want worried mothering alien overlords!
Lucy Irvine @lucyirvine93Hello friends! I am day 3 of #workingfromhome and still adjusting to this new normal. But will hopefully have lots of time to get through my submissions next week if you're waiting for a response - excited to have the time to properly dig in!
Have a look at my #mswl pinned tweet if you're thinking of submitting - I'm actively looking to build my list and welcome submissions in a whole range of genres, from picture books to SFF 👋
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichento everyone who's writing epic feelings-laden adult SF/F that's thinly veiled untamed fic rn, remember me when you go on sub. have your agent play wangxian.mp3 and I'll do the editorial equivalent of grabbing your manuscript's wrist with Great Feeling and 13-16 Years of Pining
Rehema Njambi @RemyNjambi@tadethompson @Gambit589 @jeannette_ng @Shakes_P Does this make me an apprentice witch?! I'll take it! @writingandcoe I feel this is your wheelhouse.
Also, there has to be a book somewhere about this right?
#mswl I REALLY want an #ownvoices diverse sci-fi or fantasy YA or adult series. We Hunt the Flame? Children of Blood and Bone? Why are manuscripts like this not in my inbox? If you have something like this I would LOVE your proposal in my inbox firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alaina Leary Lavoie @alainaskeysMy first for @BitchMedia is about the importance of having disabled authors reimagine the fairy tale canon and write our own SFF and magic stories. @DisabledWriters #CripLit #DisabledWriters bitchmedia.org/article/review…
Oh, hello! At long last, my #MSWL page is up! I will try to keep this as up to date as possible. (I also regularly tweet things I'm looking for here.) Check it out:
