Jessica Reino @JNRlitauthor#WritingCommunity thank you all so much for your well wishes. Here is a link to @MetamorphLitAg submissions page metamorphosisliteraryagency.com/submissions. I’ll also tweet my #mswl in a thread below:
Brooklyn White @brooklynrwhiteI wrote about the co-optation of Hot Girl Summer. "If you don’t support Black women, give them access, and make them feel seen in the products you’re peddling, then you shouldn’t adopt their intraracial phrases to line your pockets." bitchmedia.org/article/brands…
Which is why in my previous call for women's fiction or romance manuscripts that are inspired by Hot Girl Summer, I specifically asked to see work by Black women writers.👇🏽 #MSWL
Okay, it's time for a work-related tweet: I'm open for queries! I'm an omnivore agent actively seeking fiction clients 📚
More #MSWL tweets soon, in the mean time here are a few guidelines/thoughts 🤓
(queries by email only, and plz follow directions: bookcaseagency.com/literary-repre…)
"Doppelgangers in dramatic women's fiction. Send me something interesting, give me characters with depth, with something to lose, and with something to fight for. Send me something I've never seen before." @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Overall, I want complex relationships, nuanced characters, & smartly plotted novels. A huge plus: a strong sense of place that adds complexity to the story - I don't want just another NYC book! #MSWL #Mystery #Thriller #FamilySaga #WomensFiction #WomenWriters #Speculative
Sami Isman @SamiIsmanNote the title change... 😊😉🎉 pic.twitter.com/YwZZnBXpg9
I read a ton of mystery/thriller/suspense submissions as well as women's fiction & I find that I've become increasingly disappointed when the love interest pops in and it's not a LGBTQ character. Where are my LGBTQ characters? #MSWL
"I'm always in the mood for smart women's fiction that reinvents the wheel on Jane Austen. Historical like LONGBOURN or modern like THE LIZZIE BENNET DIARIES." @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
#MSWL Would love to find women's fiction, thrillers and Middle Grade submissions that incorporate popular science and STEM themes. Love richly evocative stories that have a strong sense of the natural world.
The other day I was asked to promise that when a friend got in her 90s I would make sure she got a glass of wine every day. This book #MSWL -- #WF or #S about a woman who makes a promise & now she must keep it.
I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉
#amquerying authors, I am all caught up on queries except for 6 I'm still mulling over and hungry for new works. Send me all the contemporary MG, fresh YA (no more fantasy revolving around a monarchy i beg you), and HEA women's fiction / romance. #MSWL
Met @kristywharvey today at my library and she signed all three of my books! Agents can be fangirls too 😉
Y’all, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love contemporary women’s fiction. If you can write sisters like Kristy, send it my way! #mswl
So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?
