#MSWL I am always looking for a strong Cozy Mystery with a female protagonist, 70-90K words with a strong hook. I am also looking for Amish Romances, Romantic Suspense, Women's Fiction, Psychological Suspense, Middle Reader Mysteries, Historical Romances, Historical Mysteries.
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
#MSWL My Adult Romance loves are enemies to lovers tropes, as well as best friend to lovers tropes, and I really fall for some wounded military heroes and alpha males with a strong softness, as well as women who can hold their own but realize they don't necessarily need to.
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊
I will not be able to spend a lot of time in #PitMad, but I am open to queries and hungry. #MSWL: mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary adult fiction. Query me here: querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs a woman in business, I read business books & listen to podcasts & seek out those by women. But I’m discouraged that most are still written by white men. Is there a belief that the audience for these books will only read white men?
I’d like to see more books by POC & women that are written for ALL business owners & entrepreneurs. #mswl just because a book is written by a woman why do we target only women in the subject?
For PBs: author/illustrators only. (I know that stings a little. Sorry?) I like modern art styles, whimsical-with-heart stories, light humor, honest kid emotions, and simple prose. +100 for women and POC author/illustrators. #mswl
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.
