Atlas Obscura @atlasobscura

As it turns out, a lot of avian speciesโ€”from parrots and penguins to owls and nightjarsโ€”glow in ways we canโ€™t see. trib.al/mXY8zas

I have no idea how the heck a glowing bird would feature in a book BUT I am willing to learn so please, #mswl for all odd, eerie, magical animal traits that are somehow actually legit (or based on a real thing)

I would love to do a book with someone who lives out somewhere gorgeous and moody, raising their own sheep (or other used-for-yarn creature?) and carding, dyeing, spinning, and knitting that wool. Part memoir, part nature, part craft book, with tons of visuals. #MSWL

My morning read today was MEM by @BCMorrow and all I can say is WOW!! ๐Ÿ˜ What a beautiful, thoughtful gem of a novel. โœจ

Between this & TIN MAN (which I loved so, so much) Iโ€™m really feeling the powerful, lovely, literary/specfic novels in small packages. So send your short (but still novel length) & gorgeous work my way? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ #MSWL

(Read those two for reference if you need more clarification ๐Ÿค—)

Speaking of #MSWL (not here, but elsewhere), Iโ€™m going to be specific and say I want all the Latinx and/or Filipino inspired spec fic ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Those are my cultures by birth & adoption, and I want to see them in SFF! (Or a sweet contemporary MG, Iโ€™m greedy โ˜บ๏ธ)

#MSWL YA historical fiction (both w/fantastic elements and w/o) with a fresh, fun modern voice. Think MY LADY JANE and GENTLEMEN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE!

Haggard Hawks @HaggardHawks

A TWO-FOR-HIS-HEELS is a roguish, knavish gentleman.

Wait can I sign and/or buy a book w/this title though? Throw in some magic on top (Iโ€™m always hungry for more domestic style magic!) #MSWL

My number one #MSWL right now: big, ambitious books that pack a punch. Tied w/fun books that keep you up late&make you laugh on the train!
