It's Adult day for #dvpit and it's my birthday🎈! So here's my birthday #dvpit wish-list: a lesbian detective series, diverse sci-fi (I ❤️ Becky Chambers), diverse historical and I'd love to find a high-concept with a darker side (think Black Mirror in a novel) #MSWL

For today's #DVPit #MSWL, I'm especially seeking:
- Novels in Verse
- Magical realism
- Diverse ensemble casts
- Psychological Suspense
- WITCHES, but not just fantasy
- Historical or Historical AU (think AND I DARKEN)
- INTERSECTIONALITY bc damn, we need to get better about that

Putting this out into the universe: actively looking for nonfiction proposals in the areas of historical narrative nonfiction, pop science/psychology, work that targets a millennial audience, & work that engages in discussions happening in the feminist & political spheres. #mswl

In adult, I'm mainly looking for SFF & historical, especially the kind that's both gripping & intimate. I want a really deep dive into a character's (or community's) emotional journey. #mswl

After devouring The Handmaid's Tale, I marathoned #AliasGrace on @netflix. Now kind of obsessed with the idea of finding historical suspense /fiction inspired by true crimes of a bygone era. #MSWL

#MSWL An epic fantasy that draws on a lesser-known body of historical resarch.
