Day 8 of #25DaysofMSWL part 1: I want a strong writer in the vein of Kit Frick, Laura Weymouth, Claire Legrand, Laura Taylor Namey. What is stand out about them is they have a eloquence in their writing and a high concept story. #MSWL
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerThis is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Same TBH #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI am looking for YA fantasy. I have 3 dedicated fantasy authors: @alexandraovery (because damn, lady can write an unreliable character and amazing concepts) @StefanieSuzaya (because lady wrote a dark Asian fantasy that drew me in), and @KariTrogen (who spoke to kid me) .
So with my #MSWL in fantasy I am looking for these elements:
-fantastic world building
-complex, rounded characters
-high concept plots or explorations of tropes froma new angle
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeNow let's talk contemporaries and what I am drawn to in those so when you see my #MSWL, you'll know.
First off, I need high concept. I am not often drawn to the contemporary that could be my everyday life. I need to escape so even if it is a real world setting, it is not my REAL WORLD.
