Retelling

Kate Brauning @KateBrauning · Feb 15

I would love a modern YA Samson and Delilah, any genre. I'd also love an M/M historical, modern, or fantasy retelling of David and Jonathan #MSWL

I love retelling (except for Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and King Arthur) so give me fresh new spins. Bonus points if they are not the same ones we always see. #MSWL (psst: you can also use them as a spring board like how ACOTAR was a Beauty and the Beast one)

All this talk of Austen vs Bronte makes me want some retellings! FYI: I am a PERSUASION fan and I am partial to Anne Bronte, but I could any of the Brontes. #MSWL #YA

Fantasy retelling of a biblical story - maybe Esther, Jonah, Hagar, or Hosea and his unfaithful wife. Set it somewhere new and magical. Add depth and imagination, but not heresy or gratuitous sex/violence. Lead reader through mud to beauty. #MSWL #Christian #YA #Fantasy

Still looking for a bunch of YA things: a story about female best friends; a macabre fairy tale retelling; a great mystery; a cute gay or lesbian love story. #MSWL

Still on the hunt for a really original novel/opera/ballet/myth retelling. #mswl

My kingdom for an #ownvoices South Asian retelling of P&P. #mswl

"Retellings of fairy-tales & myths, w/ a twist. Different ending? Gender swapped? You tell me!" @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

STILL wanting that YA Anastasia retelling / reimagining (historical AUs, fairytale-esque fantasies, and beyond). Bonus points for a romance that charms even half as much as Anya/Dimitri. #MSWL

#MSWL I love Cyrano de Bergerac with the passion of a thousand tiny suns. I'd love to see a modern retelling of Cyrano for either MG or adult (romance) readers (after 1.1.18).
