Jill Gutowitz @jillboardMore people should be talking about this: 'Gentlemen Jack,' a lesbian period drama series, is out April 22 on HBO. It follows Anne Lister, a real lesbian landowner in the 1800s, in her pursuit of finding a wife when female queerness was simply unheard of. It's must-see gay TV.
1. This is the first time I've heard of this!! Thank you for doing the Lord's work!
2. Make it at least a little bit magical/speculative and shove it in my inbox ASAP, thank you #MSWL

speaking of #MSWL ideas I am wasting away in want of...!
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichen@kurestinarmada YES it's wide open for a perfect intersection of labyrinthine truth & mythological strangeness. Also thinking of how pigment trade & sourcing brought together unexpected empires & cultures. Why is this not a real book in my hands with an embossed cover that looks like impasto.
sdfjhalsdfa you're breaking my heart over here, I want to both work on it endlessly with someone and also shove a cool 35$ into a bookseller's hands to receive my copy immediately 😫🙏 Please, #MSWL gods, hear our plea!
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaI find Kameron’s shyness paired with her jaw-dropping bod and stunning makeup to be so charming?? Every time she wanders around like a big muscled Bambi when I expect her to be strutting I’m like 😭😭💖🙏✨ pic.twitter.com/lwKG4kqH3U
(Spoiler but that’s also a #MSWL bc every time a query talks about a shy typical “prince” character I’m tripping in my rush to get to the request button)
So I may have skipped DVPit today because the idea of requesting more things right now makes me sweat BUT if you can comp your manuscript to In Other Lands by @sarahreesbrenna then please send it to me ASAP bc I am obsessed, thanks so much #MSWL
Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraAs it turns out, a lot of avian species—from parrots and penguins to owls and nightjars—glow in ways we can’t see. trib.al/mXY8zas
I have no idea how the heck a glowing bird would feature in a book BUT I am willing to learn so please, #mswl for all odd, eerie, magical animal traits that are somehow actually legit (or based on a real thing)
Alyza Liu | 无名氏 @muguiyings@kurestinarmada yes!!! i also want to see a princess who takes her political duties seriously & recognises that her personal desire to marry for love might be a smidge less important than the thousands of lives resting on a political marriage #mswl
QT as a not so subtle slide across the table to all you authors out there 👀👀👀👀 #MSWL
I would love to do a book with someone who lives out somewhere gorgeous and moody, raising their own sheep (or other used-for-yarn creature?) and carding, dyeing, spinning, and knitting that wool. Part memoir, part nature, part craft book, with tons of visuals. #MSWL
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaMy morning read today was MEM by @BCMorrow and all I can say is WOW!! 😍 What a beautiful, thoughtful gem of a novel. ✨
Between this & TIN MAN (which I loved so, so much) I’m really feeling the powerful, lovely, literary/specfic novels in small packages. So send your short (but still novel length) & gorgeous work my way? 🙏🙏 #MSWL
(Read those two for reference if you need more clarification 🤗)
Speaking of #MSWL (not here, but elsewhere), I’m going to be specific and say I want all the Latinx and/or Filipino inspired spec fic 🙌🙌 Those are my cultures by birth & adoption, and I want to see them in SFF! (Or a sweet contemporary MG, I’m greedy ☺️)
