A little late to #MSWL today but love to see Adult, YA, or MG fantasy based on Filipino mythology and folklore.

#MSWL: adult #SFF where the real enemy isn’t one malicious individual or group—it’s a system, but the toppling of said system would inflict massive collateral damage on unsuspecting innocents. And then, if the revolution succeeds—what happens next?

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!

#MSWL: feminist #SFF

I don’t mean “strong heroine succeeds in a sexist society.” That exists, and much of it isn’t feminist in a way that reflects the intellectual underpinnings of the concept.

I want “strong heroines work together—intersectionally—to dismantle the patriarchy.”

Is it still #MSWL day?

Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”

Please send me sci-fi/fantasy/mystery/thrillers, ya or adult, especially those that are character driven or investigate genre tropes
I’m also a sucker for anything with a strong environment, either literally or figuratively

#MSWL Contemporary fantasy that breaks the mold so hard its like the mold never even existed. No urban bounty-hunters, no small-town detectives, etc. New characters, new settings, new plots, and new perspectives only. Show me something new!
