I would love to see dystopia or fantasy/sci fi with abandoned theme parks. Think Doctor Who "Nightmare in Silver" episode or Chernobyl playground feels. Points for setting as haven to homeless kids #MSWL
Here are the genres I'm open to: Fantasy (all kinds), Contemporary, Cont. Romance, select Romance, light Sci Fi, Magical Realism, Historical.
Upper MG, YA, and Adult only
I want LGBTQ+ and diverse characters, themes, and worlds. I want mental health and disability rep. #MSWL
#MSWL for MG, I want mature voices. Upper MG storylines. LOVE historical fiction for younger characters, contemporary that makes me like who I'm reading about, urban fantasy/magical realism where the child is strong & proud.
#MSWL I like gritty, I like dark, and I like finding the kernel of light in complicated characters. Especially in Fantasy & Sci Fi. However, not a fan of rape, drug/physical/sexual abuse, or mystery/thriller plots.
#MSWL Southern Gothic is high on my list. YA or A; historical fiction/fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy, magical realism. Bonus points for local legend and bayou storylines.
#MSWL I am DYING for Historical Fiction & Historical Fantasy featuring POC, females in male-dominated industry, LGBTQ+. Also looking for settings other than the overplayed American/European countries
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl pic.twitter.com/LZ06ndP0L0
Always #mswl for this in MG & YA. Historical fic, urban fantasy, and magical realism!
Kelly @YAFantasyFanMaybe a YA fantasy about the lowly shop sweeper or something? Give me a literal "nobody" and make her story remarkable w/o royalty. #MSWL
Yes yes yes yes yes. All the yes's. #MSWL
