Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinGot a rejection of and offer for the same book, within 5 minutes of each other today. I've said it before, authors, it only takes one. Rejections aren't personal. The game is trying to find the right match.
Whoa. This tweet’s getting a lot of love. Reminder: I’ll only be open to queries until February 15th. Looking for YA & MG ms, especially those written by Black authors & other POC, and LGBTQIA+ folx. Please see my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to query me with.
Alex Petrovnia, bane of TERFs and anti of fa @AlexPetrovniaSo apparently today was the first time a lot of people on my TL learned what a TERF is, so I’m going to educate y’all on some more queer history, since it’s shockingly unknown. For today, let’s talk about the color pink. 🧵
Reminder that I will only be open to queries for 3 more weeks. I'm looking for Young Adult and Middle Grade manuscripts, especially those written by Black authors and other POC, as well as LGBTQIA+ folx. Please check out my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to send me.
I also do adore tropes. Enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, fake dating, slow burn... I’d love to see marginalized voice playing with these tropes in their books, especially YA fantasy (and romance of course)! #MSWL
(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl
For YA and MG genre, I love genre fiction with fast pacing and high stakes. I am generally not preferential to any specific genre as long as the rules of the genre are respected and understood.... #mswl
For YA & MG contemp., I love fiction where the main character has average, everyday challenges and we see how they overcome them. I love books that are lighthearted and emotionally driven.... #mswl
#MSWL update! I'm now accepting thrillers in adult fiction (as well as in YA, which has always been the case). I am NOT looking for anything law-enforcement focused, including FBI/CIA. I am looking for the story to contribute to a larger sociopolitical conversation.
Contemporary WITCHES and covens. #YA and #MG, but keep it grounded in this world—think: The Craft or Practical Magic. I'm also on board with other #magicalrealism in styles of Laura Ruby, Anna-Marie McLemore, Emily X.R. Pan, Katrina Leno, Ibi Zoboi's American Street #MSWL
Detective Pikajew, Esq. @clapifyoulikemeHi I would like to know why I don't already have at least five seasons of this hit romcom series???? them.us/story/usa-cana… pic.twitter.com/b8vXpK1vVh
Rival female hockey team captains fall in love, but WAIT what about the upcoming championship where their teams must play each other!?
Someone please write this YA with tons of humor and love and joy and send it to me as soon as possible!!! Ok, thanks!
I've been an Agatha Christie obsessive since my blessed 6th grade teacher gave me "And Then There Were None," so PLEASE send me all your #YA and #MG Agatha-inspired #whodunnits like #trulydevious and the movie #knivesout. #MSWL
Caitlin White @caitforestellSO EXCITED to announce that I'm now open to queries at @EmeraldCityLit & will represent #YA and #MG fiction projects alongside agents @MandyHubbard and @LindaEpstein. I'm so grateful to them both for being such incredible mentors. #amquerying submit here:
To get an idea of what I'm looking for from #amquerying writers, check out this #MSWL thread I'll be updating throughout the day. #YA & #MG #fiction only. To start, I absolutely would love to see submissions by BIPoC and LGBTQ+ authors and writers with disabilities. #mswl
Last but not least...I don’t normally open for science fiction, but I’m really looking for something in the MG or YA space to knock my socks off. I don’t want anything set in space or with ships. I’ll keep my inbox open to this genre open until the end of February.
