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

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
(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)
