I'm marathoning every (good) Cinderella movie ever made with my baby girl today and it really, really makes me want a Cinderella retelling. Ever After's my fave & I'd especially vibe something realistic & historical like that but will look at anything you send me! #MSWL

#MSWL while I absolutely love middle grade horror and dark fantasy, I'm seeing A LOT of it in queries. Would love to see some variety! Sci-fi, fairytale retellings, contemporary, something tragic, joyful stories, series oriented, adventure, etc

Gender-flipped contemporary Cinderella retelling, except I want β€œCin” to be damaged, the bad boy, who needs rescuing in true enemies-to-lovers fashion by his β€œprincess.” Make him sympathetic & redeemable at first. Make us only really like him as the plot develops. #MSWL

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL
