Magical Realism

#MSWL Southern Gothic is high on my list. YA or A; historical fiction/fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy, magical realism. Bonus points for local legend and bayou storylines.

Also would love to see some #upmarket women's fiction w/ a unique hook and/or a hint of magical realism #MSWL #WF #MR

#MSWL a totally delicious YA romantic comedy that is diverse; still trying to find my perfect Paris novel (YA or adult); a historical YA mystery (think Jennifer Donnelly's These Shallow Graves); magical realism 4-ever

I finished another book by Sara Addison Allen this weekend, which means my #MSWL for today is a feel good women's fiction, family story. With or without magical realism. #MSWLMadness

BUT I want to see some modern magic realism, and some contemporary fantasy (think portal magic, magical bakeries/flower shops, lighthearted time travel in the vein of the movie About Time). Again, more modern/contemporary and less urban fantasy. #mswl

I’ve been listening to THE GREATEST SHOWMAN album all night—it’s so good! Now I’m craving some #circus themed submissions in my inbox right w/ a hint of #magicalrealism (& by circus, I don't mean clowns!) #A #WF #YA #MG #MR #MSWL

Writers, please send me your #YA #magicalrealism projects! Was chatting with editors at #alamw18 today and that’s on their lists! #MSWL

Give me a character driven magical realism book with only a bare hint of the magic. #MSWL

I want a literary book that is not contemporary. Give me a literary fantasy, magical realism, historical fiction. #MSWL

I saw @shapeofwater last night, and as I sat in the theater, enraptured, I realized I wanted to read as many books as possible with that kind of incredible storytelling and perfectly executed magical realism. (YA and adult!) #MSWL

On the hunt for wildly original #MG #fantasy, #paranormal, #magicalrealism and #mystery. Think RULES FOR STEALING STARS, THE NIGHT GARDENER, WINTERHOUSE, SERAPHINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK. #MSWL

Okay, folks! I’ve entered my Thirties and I am ready to acquire all of the books! Agents, if you’ve got any magical realism, dark humor, own voices, STEAM-based books, multicultural contemporary stories, or anything rooted in folklore, I’m your gal! #MSWL
