I'll be quite honest, I'm tired of the white, male, straight cop. It isn't that I won't read or consider, I'm just bored and I don't want to be bored. Give me the lesbian mother fighting for her child or the POC cop. Give me more women and give me something I haven't seen #MSWL
While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.
Help me through this sinus infection by sending me #mswl I’m desperate to read:
Female code breakers/spies a la BBC’s Bletchley Circle, THE ALICE NETWORK, or VELVET UNDERCOVER. Remarkable women in history who served great purpose in war. Mostly adult, but will take YA!
Nicola Davidson @NicolaMDavidsonHistory truth: women ruled empires, led armies, made important advancements in science, mathematics, medicine, invented things, wrote books, protested, broke rules, loved women, enjoyed kink etc etc ETC.
In NO ERA did they all sit quietly and sew.
Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueAt Hallmark Publishing are closing to unagented submissions after Labor Day, BUT, we will take unagented submissions during the month of Feb. '19! Here's a big thread about what we're looking for. #MSWL #publishing #amwriting #1linewed #romance
For now, we're only looking for full-length novels, 65K - 85K, and we're only looking at sweet (sometimes called "clean and wholesome") romance and cozy mystery. The romance can straddle the line of women's fiction. #MSWL #publishing #amwriting
I desperately need upmarket, literary or women's fiction that takes a close look at the opioid epidemic. Maybe a person dealing with a child, spouse, or other who is addicted? Or a family saga ala Bull Mountain #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95Hey #amquerying authors! Here's what the BookEnds agents are dying to see in their inboxes. #MSWL twitter.com/bookendslit/st…
I was late coming to the thread so I'll add mine in now. I'd like more books like Crazy Rich Asians. I'm in the mood for something funny and light. #diversebooks a plus or women's fiction. #amquerying #MSWL
I'm putting it out into the universe and hoping it will be kind and answer, if there are any Polynesian authors out there who have either a YA, HistFic, WF, Romance, or even mystery, I reeeeeeeeeeally want to see it! #MSWL
