#MSWL adult fantasy (epic/high) in world inspired by less-seen-in-SFF cultures. No vamps, weres, witch/wiz, god/Angel, fae/elf, elemental/spellcasting etc tropes - instead show me NEW magic, NEW creatures, or wild twisty fantasy world/political structures.

Show me something bizarre and outside the normal, with a dynamic fantasy structure, journeys and trickery and twists. Show me how cunning, courage, and wit can make any character's magic win - or save - the world. Show me dialogue that sparks with character and voice. #mswl

#MSWL high stakes, character driven fantasy w/intricately realized worlds, unique fantasy/magical systems&new creatures. Fun, original political systems, visually dynamic settings, characters with emotions that rip me from my life and plunge me into the pages.

So show me a chef, a medicine woman, a food runner, a hairdresser, a shoemaker, an assistant who has the potential to outshine their superior but has yet to discover/reveal it. Let their magic be small but let them find a way to make it ignite in their favor. #mswl

My kids told story this AM of random household objects having a party while I slept (the chapstick, the glasses, the cookie jar etc - the vitamins were NOT invited) and I thought this would make a cute PB! #mswl

-And a shoutout to siblings, family members, & support people of non-NT people. I know how much you care, how deeply you love, how powerfully you advocate and support.

And #MSWL: #ownvoices middle grade stories about non-neurotypical life in middle school, because I can only imagine what navigating those halls is like for my oldest child, and wish his peers had more empathy than judgment when witnessing his distress.

I am absolutely ELATED at the cute and funny MG stories in my inbox.
Next: more adult fantasy please!!! #MSWL

#MSWL I am in need of more Middle Grade MG queries in my QueryManager! Send me ridiculous, send me adventure, send me fantasy, send me LGBTQ+ protags and family dynamics, BFFs and boisterous ensembles, stories with purpose, depth, and humor! #querytip #amquerying #amwriting

#MSWL adult or YA fantasy that makes me feel like I'm in one of Lindsey Stirling's music videos.

#MSWL Kids deserve female role models who take charge and male role models who are comfortable with that.

#MSWL Reverse the courting in a prince/princess story. Make HER show HIM the world, and make HIM get all prettied up for her! Give the innocence to the prince, and the expertise to the princess. Let his naivety be his appeal, and her worldliness be hers. #kidlit

On my fantasy/scifi #MSWL I often say I like stories to play with time. This doesn't necessarily mean time travel. My FAVORITE movie/short story is Arrival/Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang. The way time is used in that RUINED ME in the best way. Play with big concepts like time.
