Saturday Evening Thoughts

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16

I would love a modern YA Samson and Delilah, any genre. I'd also love an M/M historical, modern, or fantasy retelling of David and Jonathan #MSWL

Hey! It's Thursday! You know what that means?
Nothing really I guess but plz go write me some wild sci-fi/fantasy with stakes that just skyrocket through the whole book and relationships that make me weep. #MSWL

#Querying? Send me your contemporary #MG, especially if it plays with structure like Jack Cheng's See You in the Cosmos. Send me your historical fantasy #YA, especially if it has a multicultural cast like Heidi Heilig's The Girl From Everywhere. #MSWL

#MSWL Adult fantasy with wild new magical systems/belief structures/world structures. Lace the magic into the world in surprising, original ways. Vivid settings, towering stakes, dynamic voices. Confident, unique perspectives. LGBTQ+/Diverse characters a plus.

I would so love a YA like this, contemp or fantasy. Chloe Kim’s dad texted her before the Olympic halfpipe final that she was about to become a dragon. nbcolympics.com/news/what-chlo… #MSWL

Also! I’d love to see more #ya #ownvoices #fantasy. I seriously can’t get enough YA fantasy 😍 I’d especially like to see projects where the plot isn’t centered around the MC overthrowing an evil ruler. #MSWL

Just to clarify, I'm not AGAINST seeing projects w/ an evil ruler being dethroned. I just receive a high volume of these types of submissions so I'm super picky (I recently received a few emails saying "I hate this, too!" And I'm like nope, nope not what I was saying! 😂) #MSWL

I want a literary book that is not contemporary. Give me a literary fantasy, magical realism, historical fiction. #MSWL

FMA & Brotherhood are back on Netflix, so I'm rewatching, natch. I LOVE this series, you guys. #MSWL for the whole damn thing but especially the beautifully developed ensemble cast & the representation and treatment of disability.

Cont. --when I talk about wanting to see disability in a sf/f setting--where the world informs but does not solve the disability--I am basically pointing with BIG NEON SIGNS at Edward Elric & all the characters with automail. #MSWL

I am looking for a lush fantasy world with morally grey characters. #MSWL

Now that it's out in the world, I can officially say:

Fantasies like THE HAZEL WOOD by @mimi_albert are on my forever and ever #MSWL.
