#MSWL Anyone have an #ownvoices horror that combines Octavia Butler, Lynch and elements of David Robert Mitchell?

Trodayne Northern @TroNorth · 25 Jul 2019

#mswl #mood In the mood 4 a SFF mystery written by a poc or lgbtq+ author(or both) that conjures Baldwin, Carey & Gaiman, includes kaiju & swords & has a Crichton/Aeryn Sun &/or 500 Days of Summer-esque romantic subplot as well.
πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Can that even be a mood? Lmao

#mswl It's 2:30.I need 2 be up in 4 hrs & I'm thinking 'bout #Blockbuster video. Normally, we don't take short fiction unless it's by a current client but I kinda think I want a bunch of stories set in a Blockbuster. Maybe an anthology. #Writers #Editors, who's with me? So sleepy

Currently reading a submission that made me think of the quote below. Gorgeous. It's got this in spades. Wouldn't mind another perhaps somehow centered in genre fiction. #MSWL #amreading

Prentis Literary recently discovered our website submission algorithm incorrectly sorted submission authors designated as 'POC'. Instead, it took POC as part of the word aPOCalyptic as in post-apocalyptic. So begins the search for months of POC/Intersectional fiction in our queue

In lieu of this, any #POC writer, or writer whose work is steeped w/intersectionality who hasn't heard from us but submitted late spring/early summer & on...
Please follow up w/letter 2 #MSWL We'll always be πŸ‘€for #writersofcolor & marginalized voices

Okay kiddies, stepping away for a bit but will be back. Keep 'em coming. Thanks for those who've reached out already & if you've got some POC genre-mashing sci-fi/fantasy YA or otherwise, that reads like funk or jazz, or another regional patiois...bring it! #MSWL #PitMad
