So I visited Bamburgh Castle today and heard the ballad of The Laidly Worm of Spindleston Heugh and now I want a feminist retelling of Princess Margaret who got turned into a wyrm.… #mswl

I still very much love retellings/reimaginings, but I'm looking for fresh and unique ones that aren't Disney, Grimm fairytales, or classics like Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, etc... #mswl

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

YA retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo (genderbend it, modernize it, set it in space, etc...) #mswl #ILoveRevengeStories
