Kate Brauning @KateBrauningIf you want to DEAL with this sexism in your romance, go for it! Shed light on it, show it as the abuse it is.
And if you want to write monsters falling in love, subvert it. Give us new "good monsters," not abusive jerks. #subtips
Monsters, but versed in loving consent culture. #MSWL
Kat Enright @katenrightI am always looking for YA fantasy and science fiction. I’d love something fresh and new from traditionally underrepresented voices! #MSWL
Now, please note that I’m not a good fit for the following: dystopians, westerns, and stories that focus on sexual assault.
(Thoughtful stories about sexual assault are important, but it’s just not something I am comfortable working with in this capacity) #MSWL
Kat Enright @katenrightSo it’s been a while since I did a #MSWL thread, and I’m stuck in the car, so now seems as good a time as any! pic.twitter.com/xf6B32GAhT
Just as a reminder, I am open to MG and YA of all categories, Adult SFF, Adult Romance, and select nonfiction. For my static #MSWL and sub guidelines, please check out my website. Link in bio!
Kat Enright @katenrightHello all! I will be closed to queries from Thursday December 20th through Wednesday January 2nd, reopening on January 3rd with an UPDATED MSWL. All queries sent in that time will be deleted unread. Thank you so much for your understanding, and Happy Holidays!
Hey all, I'm still closed till tomorrow, but I've posted my updated #MSWL on the MSWL website and on my website (link in bio). If you'd like to see what I'm looking for, please check it out. But what I'm most excited about -- I'M OPENING TO MIDDLE GRADE!
Catherine Slavova @CSlavovaI remember after the success of Twilight, the deluge of love interests in YA that clearly took after Edward, but with everything heightened.
I hope that with all the YA authors screaming about Dragon Age on twitter, we see a deluge of Alistairs, Dorians, Cullens, Zevrans & more.
Akemi Dawn Bowman @akemidawnBoys in YA: is a criminal mastermind/murders people/cuts people’s eyes out/betrays literally everyone
Everyone: this beloved character is so complicated and misunderstood we must protect him at all costs
Girls in YA: rolls eyes
Everyone: SO UNLIKEABLE UGH I CAN’T RELATE AT ALL
This reminds me. Female Kaz Brekker is my forever #MSWL.
