Sam Gentry @Sam_Gentry24Wednesday morning #MSWL! I’d love to see a YA version of @netflix’s “You”...creepy stalker love interest and the exploration of the people we become on social media. And a little murder couldn’t hurt. 😬
Ditto 👀 #mswl
alanna bennett @AlannaBennettFull-stop My Best Friend’s Wedding is one of my favorite romantic comedies because the villain is the MAIN CHARACTER and straight up a legendary anti-hero and it’s still so rare to get a rom-com where the main character LOSES.
It has the best rom-com chase scene for that reason pic.twitter.com/PEMPSJTuqb
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
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.
Omg someone please write this and send it to me. PLEASE. #mswl
Tara Tsai @TaraTsaiWritesMy mother-in-law was telling stories of how she had to accompany her sister on match-making dates in Hong Kong when she was a kid. Dim sum with the couple and all the females in the family. Is there a historical romance like this, especially own voices? I would love to read this!
Omg please someone write this for me #mswl
I just listened to a story about The Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Circle, and now I desperately want to read a SFF that features an intergalactic version of this amazing place. Maybe it’s a heist book?! #mswl
Jennifer Wright @JenAshleyWrightI’m waiting for a reverse Hallmark Christmas Movie about a small town girl who realizes her community’s politics are terrible, moves to Manhattan, gets a high pressure office job, meets a businessman, and they host a non-denominational holiday party at their penthouse.
#mswl but make it gay af
Charlie Stross @cstrossFantasy worldbuilding props if there's a quasi-illegal alternate currency made out of very small persistent spells created in bulk in sweatshops by apprentice sorcerers, that is causing an inflationary bubble as it gradually depletes the global mana supply all magic relies on. twitter.com/redtwitdown/st…
Rachel Diebel 🌬 @diebelraThis is your yearly reminder not to force your child of any age or gender to hug someone, stranger or otherwise, this holiday season because it’s really weird to teach your child that they owe anyone hugs when they are not comfortable!!!!!!
THIS IS THE PICTURE BOOK I WANT. #mswl
Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenEHas vax been covered in MG? Might make for an interesting conflict. #MSWL (Just for the record, I am and always will be pro-vaccines. Vaccines save lives.) twitter.com/laurenspieller…
THIS IS SO INTERESTING. #mswl
