More QPOC books and authors please! Contemporary, historical and/or fantasy! #mswl

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · 26 Sep 2018

And while on the topic of my nostalgia, I'd love a SF/F reminiscent of things like Cowboy Bebop, FMA:Brotherhood, or even Magic the Gathering. Let your geek flag fly! #MSWL

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · 26 Sep 2018

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 26 Sep 2018

While we’re getting to know each other, how about some #mswl? Today I’ll talk about YA:

- Contemporary with earnest, engaging voices (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, TO ALL THE BOYS, DUMPLIN’)
- Lush fantasy (CARAVAL, Grisha series)
- Sassy girl detective a la Veronica Mars
(1/2)

I'd love to see some edgy New Adult romance with SFF or thriller type flair #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

@hannahnpbowman @maxgladstone don't forget how centaurs and merfolk aren't classified as people and everyone's like oh that's fine

Re: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL

If you have received rejections lately, you absolutely should keep querying. But if this thread made you think "Well there was that one scene..." or "well I did decide to trim that to be like Writer McFamousDude..." GO FIX IT FIRST. Send me something mindblowing. You CAN do this.

And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please.

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · 23 Sep 2018

It's late on Saturday and I'm thinking about sci fi, fantasy and YA fantasy after reading an epic ton of queries this last week. I'm going to kick your butt a bit here, okay? If you don't want that, scroll on. A thread #MSWL

ZR/Za-BOO Ellor💀👻🕷🕸🧛🏼‍♂️ @ZREllor · 21 Sep 2018

#MSWL Fantasy and historical fiction about female characters engaging in traditionally-feminine pastimes. Give me seamstresses breaking curses, wetnurses playing politics, noblewomen arranging marriages for their kids

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe

I *need* a YA adaptation of this (times a billion).

YES except also as adult fantasy about the rash decisions you made as an impetuous youth & an impetuous witch but now you're falling in love in your grumpy 30s over a magical contract you didn't think though w/lots of resigned sighs & awkward eye contact & netflix #mswl

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · 19 Sep 2018

#MSWL: secondary world SFF political systems based on historical governments that weren’t quasi-absolute monarchies—e.g. the Japanese shogunate, the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ancient Greek polis, the elected Khans of the Mongol Empire, the city-states of the Aztec Triple Alliance

Jordy Albert @bluedragonfly81 · 13 Sep 2018

Hey! #mswl I’m looking for YA sci fi and fantasy, myth or traditional folk tale retelling-especially a Hades and Persephone retelling. Romance is definitely a plus!
