Magic

If you like your contemporaries mixed with a little bit of magic--well, I love that too! Especially if you have some kind of F/F witch book up your sleeve. #MSWL

And magic! I love magic. I especially love magic if you've got a new, fun magic system with cool rules, powers, and limitations. I love exploring what magic can do, and how characters have to learn to work around the limitations of it. #MSWL

It's #MSWL time! I'm on the hunt for contemporary middle-grade, and middle-grade with speculative or magical realism elements. Sound like your book? Hit me up.

Unusual pitches? I got ‘em! I had a discussion once about the legality and technical aspects of handmade books, bound in donated human skin & had a full out-of-body experience, just to stop screaming.

On the other hand... #mswl - I love a dark villainous magician!

I really just want to work on a graphic novel about magic and friendship and #LatinX culture and identity and laughs for days #MSWL

Our interests are listed there @ Prentisliterary.com But wave a wand @ my inbox 2day? I'd want some POC, magical funk realism-w/lush, succulent prose that dribble down your chin. Prose like @halleluyang,@chrisabani or Kai Ashanti Wilson. Could list more but not with 140 #MSWL

I'll be tweeting out my "Most Wanted" for Day 1 of #DVPit shortly. If you have something that fits bill, please don't hesitate to @ me your pitch! twitter.com/whitleyabell/s…

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

I'm still on the hunt for a middle grade that just makes me sob and fills my heart with FEELINGS with maybe a touch of magical realism? #MSWL

For my MG, right now I really want magical adventure! Send me something fantastical and fun, with a great hook, and friendships that shine. Especially if there are any non-human magical characters incorporated in a fresh way. #MSWL

Gonna drop a few #MSWL tweets as I’ve been going through my queries this weekend (sorry if you’re still waiting on a response—I’m getting there!) and trying to listen to what my gut is craving. I’m focusing on MG and YA, so let’s get started:

I would really love some character-driven YA fantasy that is both dark AND funny. Especially if there is a big eclectic cast and truly unique magic. Voicey characters but still high stakes and a world with details that awe, from city life to wildlife. #MSWL

Would love to see some magical realism in my inbox #mswl for all those who are #amwriting
