actually let's make that a graphic novel with dinosaurs, please!! #mswl

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · Sep 12

I keep reassuring people that it's okay to send me queries without dinosaurs but... what if you actually sent me queries with dinosaurs? #mswl

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · Sep 12

I'm also looking for more nonfiction--particularly smart, accessible books about feminism, science, history, or travel; and prescriptive or art/gift books with a geeky subject. Author platform preferred! #mswl

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · Sep 12

It's #MSWL day! I would love to find a great graphic novel that fits my list. I get very few GN queries. Especially if an artist is already attached--please send it my way!

I hope this was clear in my earlier thread but hey I REALLY want to see more stories about queer women by queer women! #mswl

It's hard to think of #MSWL items when my feed is filled with disheartening news. One certainty: I'm looking for diverse #ownvoices.

Do you know what identity porn is? Hint: it has nothing to do with actual porn. fanlore.org/wiki/Identity_…

Replying to @literallycait

It's the name for the narrative trope "secret identities causing relationship drama," and I LOVE IT. Send me stories w/ identity porn! #MSWL

Story idea: Ouran High School Heist Club. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

I'm tired of broody or aggressive love interests. Give me a LI who is a huge loser puppy like Alistair in Dragon Age: Origins. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

Getting more specific on #MSWL: I'm a huge foodie/cook & would love a YA involving food or cooking competitions in some way.

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

Also always looking for SFF stories that address important real-world topics/themes in thoughtful ways a la Ursula LeGuin, #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

Also when you're sending me diverse queries, I love to know if they are #ownvoices! That is always a plus in my book. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

As always, stories about women and female friendships, rivalries, & relationships (platonic or otherwise) are always high on my #MSWL
