Hello! I am so excited to welcome you to Manuscript Wish List 3.0!
As you know, the #MSWL board is constantly generating ideas. But for years, so many of the things we wanted—things on our, well, wish lists—weren’t possible without advanced technical know-how (or, you know, venture capital of the variety you get on Shark Tank).
Then—in an incredible stroke of luck—Mike Chen and Sierra Fong, two writers who also specialize in author website design with their company Atmosphere Websites, came onboard. Mike encouraged me to dream big. First on our list? Let everyone update their own profiles, with their own accounts. This would save us time, give agents and editors more control, AND make sure everything is up-to-date. Sierra designed everything visual about the site. Everything that is beautiful, rounded, and color-coordinated is her doing. Both of them—being writers themselves—knew what would best help the writing community find their match. It’s rare for people to have writing skills, emotional intelligence, AND the ability to build beautiful online things—but they do. They also build author sites and are an absolute joy to work with. They’re geniuses* AND nice people. See the Atmosphere Websites page here.
We’ll spend the next few weeks getting everyone set up in their new 3.0 account, and—because we know new technical things can be tricky—we’ll be available as tech support at info [at] manuscriptwishlist [dot] com. Please don’t feel intimidated! The site is designed to be user-friendly. You can do it. Emails to our support team can help.
All agents and editors are welcome to join, so please do share this with your friends and colleagues.
We look forward to hearing your success stories!
