I have been a Love Island UK evangelist for several years. Winter season is no less, BUT if you’re writing a book about reality tv, set on a reality show, or girl friendships of the toxic or not variety (YA, Adult) I want to read it!
Amanda Jain @wensday95#mswl for my nonfiction writing friends:
*I'm currently devouring Patrick Radden Keefe's SAY NOTHING & would love to find a book in this vein. History or history / true crime that reads like a thriller.
*PopScience that takes a deep dive into a subject. Think SPYING ON WHALES.
The YA version for me please #MSWL
Fantasy is a tough one right now for me. I think I'm more game for fantastical elements in MG/YA rather than "capital F Fantasy." Weave something speculative into something ordinary. Riff. Innovate. Iterate. #MSWL
I'd be interested in seeing MG or YA that explores step-families in an interesting, nuanced way. I have step-parents, step-siblings, a former step-parent, former step-siblings, a new "step-mom" i.e. dad's third wife. It's rich. #MSWL
Time for a 2020 #MSWL refresh!
Would love to see:
*more, generally by Korean authors in both YA & adult
*strong literary/upmarket fiction from a diverse POV (think Celeste Ng, Jean Kwok, Kamila Shamsie, etc.)
*YA thriller in the vein of SADIE
Inbox status: I've responded to all queries sent before today and all submissions sent before December 1st. I'm HUNGRY people! Especially for #ownvoices, romcoms (YA and adult), and women's fiction. #amagenting #mswl
Kat Cho 🦊🇰🇷📚 @KatChoI NEED a YA novel with competitive teens that also have a fierce, tough, complex adult character like Monica from CHEER to support and push them! #cheeronnetflix pic.twitter.com/1EkcidfK6P
#MSWL I adore YA and MG with well-rendered adult characters no matter how peripheral they are to the story.
Good morning! I added a few more genres to my #MSWL through the StringerLit query form. Would love some humor/satire/offbeat/quirky (we need that in the world!) and I added thrillers, upmarket. Send me your funny PB and more MG/YA. stringerlit.com
ellen @ellencormierMG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl
Yes. This. #MSWL
Jessica Khoury @jkbibliophileOne day I’ll write about a pragmatic, ordinary small-town girl who accidentally ends up as manager/den mother to a group of emotionally defunct superheroes who can barely save anyone, and how her earthy determination, relentless optimism, and pecan pies save them (and the world).
This but a MG/YA graphic novel!!! Make my year and land it in my inbox please? 😍 #MSWL
Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.
I am still thinking about how THE PERFECTION & BLACK SWAN so creepily captured what it's like to take a passion too seriously. (I was a ballet dancer for 18 years, & BLACK SWAN was shockingly familiar.) I'd love a YA/adult horror novel about a dark obsession with the arts. #MSWL
