Amber Sparks🪓 @ambernoelleI have discovered that in the 90s there were young people who Sega hired to just wander around sororities and fraternities parties and plug in a Sega and start playing
A modern equivalent of this is a great setup for a YA-crossover or adult romcom. Send me your books about gamers falling in love. #mswl
Steven Salpeter @StiSalI can also stan the very realistic “they’d be perfect together if one of them were less of an idiot,” but only for so long* before I throw the book out the window.
(*”So long” is apparently more than two books in a series?)
I guess for the search engines I should add “I love any variety of a slow burn romance” in YA Contemporary, YA Fantasy, MG, Adult Contemporary, Adult, NA, GN, WF, #MSWL
I’m looking for more plot-driven contemporary fiction (realistic, magical realism, or fantasy) for adults, YA or MG or a graphic novel set in New York, Florida, California, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Maddison, San Juan, Seattle or Vancouver #mswl
In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl
I’d love to learn more about the Latinx experience and hope to see more literary or commercial fiction submissions of heartfelt contemporary novels for adults featuring Latinx characters, Latinx family stories or thrillers, adventures, fantasy, and magical realism #mswl
(And for the search engines: that’s, yes; please send me adult or YA second-world fantasy with Jewish elements, or YA Jewish magical realism, Jewish Speculative fiction, literary Jewish fantasy novels, et cetera #mswl)
Sam B. Farkas @SamBFarkasI hope we'll see more Jewish second-world fantasy. Jewish culture is full of myths and magic that would be fresh and breathtaking in a fantasy setting.
Hi, yes, please send these directly to my inbox. I’m here for your Ruth or Esther retelling, your golems, your genderbent Solomon, your modern Samson with an Ariana-length pony. Break my heart and take me to sit Shiva in a lush enchanted forest. Teach me about ru’ach magic. #MSWL
