Brandon @blgtylrMe: I don't understand how people write historical novels. How do you even get an idea for one.
Me, on a random Tuesday morning: Lol, wouldn't it be cool to write a novel about the last castrato singer and what it must be like to realize you're a relic of a vanishing time.
ummmm yes and #MSWL 😍
Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
Yes, yes, heists are AMAZING. But what about a thief who steals from the ACTUAL thieves and then sneaks into the museums or homes or whatever to return the items, but doesn't want notoriety? Then is caught and must help police to clear her own name. Maaaaybe? #MSWL
Oo! And what about a YA (Or adult, really) where it's f/f and they're forced to work on a painting together to win scholarship money or startup money. But they hate each other and then end up having a paint fight 😍 enemies to lovers! #MSWL
Still looking for an Adult contemporary with a therapy group for those who fake being kidnapped by aliens... only to have one member disappear and spark conspiracies 😉 if y'all don't write it, I might have to myself #MSWL
Can I please have modern witches? I mean, witches who are living their lives, drinking tea, wearing certain gemstones for certain qualities, hanging herbs in the kitchen, concocting healing spells and ones that help you not fall asleep in exams. Modernize! #MSWL
I want Urban Fantasy with myths and legends based far out of the usual commercial scope. Give me South American creatures, the Philippines, Eastern Island, New Zealand. What's the boogeyman there? I want to know! #MSWL
I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.
Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL
Currently on a HUGE hunt for historical! Any age. I want lesser known historic events and locations. I want MG trusted to become enmeshed in important/involved moments. I want YA and Adult to show rebellion or championing against the common law. #MSWL
I LOVE Fantasy (Urban, Contemporary, Epic, the whole wazoo). Give me lush worlds, fabulous magic systems, diverse and deep cultures. I'd love to see these also grappling with environmental issues or disability/mental health #MSWL
