#mswl Monday: Would love a voice-driven and thought-provoking #mg contemporary novel. Do you have what I'm looking for?

#MSWL Wednesday: Looking for an immersive YA high fantasy novel that offers a fresh take on the genre! Any takers? Send your query to @fluxbooks

As I watch all the beautiful snow melt on this odd, 50-degree day, I am craving a #MG novel that focuses on #STEM and environmental issues. Hit me up! #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 11 Dec 2017

Looking for a fantastic #MG story featuring mermaids. Any takers? #MSWL

I may be casting too wide a net, but.... feminist #ya please! #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 8 Feb 2017

#YA coming-of-age story featuring diverse characters and a crisis of faith/identity/concept of self. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Give me a compelling plot wrapped in magical realism that is so beautiful it hurts. Think DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Give me #wf that explores complex characters in far-off places with a voice you cannot get enough of. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Victorian #hf please--but only if your hero/heroine is a badass. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

I will request this until I die: Give me an adult sci fi with romantic elements in the vein of FIREFLY. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Got an adult superhero deconstruction with strong voice that doesn't take itself too seriously? Query me @JollyFishPress #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Give me #wf with a phenomenal voice and story arc that isn't wholly dependent on romance. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Would love something in the vein of THE NIGHT CIRCUS, @LMillerWrites PARALLEL, or @dpeterfreund FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Also, where is all the excellent steampunk? Is that not a thing anymore? I WANT TO GO TO THERE. #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Got a grown-up fairy tale with romance, a new setting, deconstruction, diversity, and/or a thrilling twist? Query me @JollyFishPress #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · 13 Sep 2016

Got any excellent pirate fiction with high stakes and romance and maybe some interesting gender dynamics? Query me at @JollyFishPress #mswl
