#MSWL I want a MS that includes a romance, framed around an antihero like Damon from the Vampire Diaries (doesn’t have to be straight romance & I’m not necessarily looking for a vampire). Wounded, bad to the bone (but good too, redeemable), infuriatingly compelling. Give me.
#MSWL a near-future America faces some cataclysm where we are the ones fleeing south to the safety of Mexico (no zombies pls, more real world). Except there’s a wall keeping us out. #POC #ownvoices author pls. Mexican protag dealing w/ US immigrants. Dual POV maybe?
Cat Rambo @CatramboThe man who came up with the idea of the singularity talks about it in a great interview: buff.ly/2zy1EAz
#MSWL This, but in an future human-occupied earth-world where that super-intelligent AI is benevolent, but then maybe another super-intelligent AI shows up from another system, one who's not so nice.
Ok this ones courtesy of my best friend, Hanna & an ancestry DNA talk on Thanksgiving. #MSWL a contemporary YA that explores the ramifications of a teen finding out through a genealogy DNA test (think school project) that her dad isn’t her real dad & the dad doesn’t know either.
I remember this movie that ends with a boy & girl from Earth being dropped off on a planet somewhere in the cosmos to start over/2nd chance, this while I think Earth's being destroyed/punished for our failures. Riff on this w/YA or MG. What happened/happens to these kids #MSWL.
Vicky Who Reads 🌸 @VickyCBooksit has been dropped~
check out my post on ✨ HOW YA ISOLATES TEENS (by me, a teen) to find out how YA can ignore it's primary intended audience! whether you're an author, publisher, or another reader, please keep in mind how teens NEED this space. 💕
My favorite comment and ask from this blog is more books written for 12-14 year olds. #MSWL because the blogger tells us, “all the books in the YA category are intimidating and seemingly for adults.”
#MSWL alt-reality dark ages YA #F w/kick-butt female protag knight wielding sword & magical powers, but prefers sword. Equally bad-a male seeming antag who end up fighting the same force, one darker than any one imagines. Dark tumultuous rough raw setting & full-tension romance.
Project Savior. I'm a huge fan of SEVENEVES by Neal Stephenson, & I'd love a powerful, weighty fantasy along the same lines. Part 1) Humanity in peril, danger, despair, rushed plans, underground cryo chambers Part 2) Waking up to & surviving a new reality millennium later #MSWL
#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.
#MSWL Far-future YA. Humanity's population is decimated. People separated by vast distances. They know of our glorious past & technological marvels, but can't replicate it. Then a beacon floods the sky in the distance, & 4 teens from different villages are sent to investigate...
Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmellI'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
I wholeheartedly DITTO this #MSWL. Juicy inspy contemporary romance and all the suspense.
#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).
