I adore Adult Fantasy like THE ROOK and HENCH. Funny, trope twisting, smart, and that shows the mundane side of something fantastic and the fantastic side of something mundane. I’d love to see more of it in my inbox. #mswl

If you have written a swashbuckling, rip roaring, madcap romp of a MG Fantasy, I want to read it. #mswl

Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)

1. Adult Horror: I want books that have something to SAY--about our present, our past, our future. Feminist/anti-colonialist stories are close to my heart, but I'm open to anything that can be described as "smart + terrifying." I'm also open to grounded fantasy w/ horror elements

I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl

I would really like to find a 30-40k MG Fantasy. Something short and sweet and magical. #mswl

I'm also hungry for unique historical fantasy in YA. I loved A TREASON OF THORNS by Laura Weymouth, AND I DARKEN by Kiersten White, and JACABY by William Ritter. #mswl

Please send me your contemporary fantasy (all ages!), especially if it has scary elements. Hauntings, body horror, dark magic, whatever! I wants it. #mswl

"Sci fi that tears me apart and Fantasy that puts me back together."

I would love to read a lighthearted fantasy. I still want conflict and stakes, but it would be nice to read something that is fun and upbeat! #mswl
