#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

After Trump’s bizarre statement about exchanging love letters w/ Kim Jong Un, I can’t help thinking it‘d be an interesting SFF novel idea: 2 unstable dictators w/ huge egos inherit world-ending arsenals & a fraught standoff, begin a diplomatic correspondence, & fall in love

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL

How about some middle grade #MSWL today?

- Classic feel + animal POV (ONE AND ONLY IVAN, PAX)
- Fantasy, both lighthearted and dark (Thickety series, UNICORN QUEST)
- Quirky + puzzles + complex plots (Mysterious Benedict Society, YORK)
- Historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE)

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

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

#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.

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

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

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Sep 25

#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 · Sep 25

#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
