I would truly love an SFF, YA or Adult, with queerness so baked into the world à la She-Ra that nobody even blinks. There’s danger and end-of-the-world stakes and messy relationships galore, but that particular threat is non-existant. This has been today’s #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodosSo I guess I should listen to Folklore?
If somebody wants to send me a Women’s Fiction that hits like The Last Great American Dynasty, for which the tagline “she had a marvelous time ruining everything” would be appropriate... I’ll be here #MSWL
eugeие ✩ @kaspbraksssauthor: so here we have this cocky male character who's kind of a womanizer
me: ok got it he's bi
author: what? no. his whole thing is he loves ladies
me: yeah i heard you. raging bisexual
author: he is AGGRESSIVELY straight
me: yeah yeah bi guy love him already
#MSWL but he’d better be bi in the end
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoI would read the fuck out of competing Nazi hunters who fall in love while they chase down Nazis and drag them back to stand trial. Just saying. JUST SAYING. IF ANYONE WANTS TO WRITE THIS. The Nazis could get "accidentally stabbed" in transit.
I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL
(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)
Look, I don’t know how you could turn the The Svalbard Global Seed Vault into a YA novel about a teenager living at the edge of the world while helping to caretake seeds that are the literal fruits of many cultures, but if anyone’s got an idea... #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos#MSWL A YA book that fits on the shelf with PRACTICAL MAGIC, THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE or THE ENCHANTED CHOCOLATE POT. But gay.
FYI this #MSWL is evergreen, but now I'll take your adult versions, too 🙏🏼
Since my call for poisoned pastry shop stories has let to fantastic results, another #MSWL: please send me your adult/YA/crossover books starring a grownup Kristy Thomas from The Babysitters Club. You know, bossy, badass, wears baseball tees, detail-oriented, clearly queer...
Becca Podato Latkes @RebeccaPodosSomebody send me an adult romcom with a Fleabag-esque MC. I would like a legitimate hot mess of a protagonist, please! #MSWL
