Kristin Daly Rens @kristin_rens@rosiesrambles Rosie, I have been telling people for ages that I am dying for a high fantasy rom com!!! It’s at the top of my #MSWL.
#MSWL I will rep it! High-fantasy Rom-Com! Pleasssseee...
Also give me some contemporary fantasy rooted in myth, lore and legends 1- #MSWL. I also specifically would love a Korean author to send me a YA contemporary fantasy w/the story of Jacheongbi as foundation! 2- #MSWL.
#MSWL Looking for very commercial, highly aspirational YA with own-voices, diverse characters, especially contemporary YA, or contemporary fantasy YA. Please put in referral line of Query manager link: "#MSWL: some combo of the above language."
#AntiMSWL & #MSWL I prefer contemporary over historical romance unless the historical has some REALLY nifty hook, though I dig fantasy in a feudal setting. I don’t rep picture books and rarely chapter books, but I’m all about middle grade (with upper MG my sweet spot!)
Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaqueAlso, surely there is a fantasy novel featuring Grand Central as a wild nexus of portals to magical worlds? If not, I would love for an author of color to write that & send it to me. #MSWL
#MSWL. I would love this so much, especially from an author who has spent time in Grand Central and understands its nuances. Ever lost a key on the train? The lost and found has so many keys! Maybe he’s the key master to each gateway!
#MSWL alt-reality dark ages YA #F w/kick-butt female protag knight wielding sword & magical powers, but prefers sword. Equally bad-a male seeming antag who end up fighting the same force, one darker than any one imagines. Dark tumultuous rough raw setting & full-tension romance.
Project Savior. I'm a huge fan of SEVENEVES by Neal Stephenson, & I'd love a powerful, weighty fantasy along the same lines. Part 1) Humanity in peril, danger, despair, rushed plans, underground cryo chambers Part 2) Waking up to & surviving a new reality millennium later #MSWL
#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).
Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL
