Reminder: @sandstonepress submissions reopen this Friday! I'm hoping to see exciting speculative fiction and quirky #narrative #Nonfiction. Female protagonists especially welcome 😊 Guidelines here: bit.ly/2J2f7HV #amwriting #publishing #mswl #amediting #WriterWednesday
I'm looking for a smart and sleek thriller. Slightly speculative, maybe five minutes into the future, there's just a little something different about this world. Think BEHIND HER EYES by @SarahPinborough or JURASSIC PARK.
E. Latimer is sort of on hiatus I guess @ELatimerWritesI want to see girls with anxiety disorders flying spaceships. I want bipolar witches. I want characters that battle both fire-spitting dragons and depression all at once. Let's address mental health more in speculative fiction.
I want to see this too #MSWL
And if you're like "I'm not 100% sure this sci-fi/fantasy works for the genre because it's more about the sibling/BFF relationship as they navigate the speculative world..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL
Slush Thurman @Sam_ThurmanOk, so remember that scene in Liar Liar when Jim Carey asks to be excused from court to pee, and the judge asks why, and he struggles in pain, unable to lie, until screaming that holding your pee can cause incontinence? Thread:
#MSWL Give me this level of deep-dive on your speculative "found powers" premise. (Also Sam is hysterical and talented and you should follow him.)
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaMy morning read today was MEM by @BCMorrow and all I can say is WOW!! 😍 What a beautiful, thoughtful gem of a novel. ✨
Between this & TIN MAN (which I loved so, so much) I’m really feeling the powerful, lovely, literary/specfic novels in small packages. So send your short (but still novel length) & gorgeous work my way? 🙏🙏 #MSWL
(Read those two for reference if you need more clarification 🤗)
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI'd like to read a mystery or a thriller set in a SFF world. Anyone have any recommendations?
Writers, this is my forever #MSWL--I love genre-bending spec fic!
