I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

I'm still dying for a Count of Monte Cristo retelling. Genderbend it. LGBTQ it. Make it contemporary. Or fantasy. I'm down for it! #mswl

It's #MSWL day! A lot of my previous mswls still stand, but I'm particularly interested in seeing more contemporary fantasy. I want to see magic in everyday life!

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 26 Feb 2018

BUT I want to see some modern magic realism, and some contemporary fantasy (think portal magic, magical bakeries/flower shops, lighthearted time travel in the vein of the movie About Time). Again, more modern/contemporary and less urban fantasy. #mswl

Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl

Replying to @ThaoLe8

I'm dying for more contemporary YA and middle grade to add to my list (particularly from marginalized voices) #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 8 Feb 2017

Geeky contemporary YA about a group of board gaming friends and the romantic drama that ensues! #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 8 Feb 2017

More middle grade. Fantasy, contemporary, sci-fi, etc... I want to see them all! #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 8 Feb 2017

Contemporary YA: I'm looking for stories about teens w disabilities, teen activists, teen entrepreneurs, smart & passionate teens! #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 13 Sep 2016

Looking for more contemporary YA and MG about family and heritage with all the feels. Especially if it features grandparents! #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 30 Jun 2016

More contemporary MG. It can have a hint of magical realism too. Stories about family, friendship, stories that make me laugh and cry. #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 30 Jun 2016

I would love a YA about famous historical rivals. Something like young Tesla versus young Edison. I also like rivalries in contemp YA #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 25 Apr 2016

I've been looking for more adult romance. Primarily contemporary, historical, and fantasy romance. #mswl
