And of course I am always, ALWAYS looking for diverse voices, authors, and characters. #mswl

#mswl I'm also looking for #graphicnovels, especially #fantasy. No real specifics I'm looking for here, just surprise me!

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

#mswl I adore romances complicated by secret identities: love triangles or quadrangles with only two actual humans involved, like MIRACULOUS LADYBUG or MR & MRS SMITH! There are so many ways to play this: IRL rivals and unwitting teammates? Lovers unaware they are secret enemies?

#lgbt #mswl I'd like to see more adult or #YA stories featuring polyamorous relationships (any genre as long as it's in my wheelhouse)

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

#mswl Some #fantasy court intrigue like THE CITY OF BRASS or GAME OF THRONES (but hard pass on all the sexual assault in the latter)

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

#mswl Something with the fun #DnD vibe of #CriticalRole or The Adventure Zone. Could be straight fantasy or a mix of game narrative and "IRL" plot about the group of gamers.

#mswl Lesbian pirates, either historical or fantasy. I've seen a number of queries like this, but none have quite clicked with me so far. Still hoping!

#mswl Character/relationship-focused spaceship or space station #SF--I'd love something with a Deep Space 9 feel

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

#mswl Contained/closed-room mysteries or thrillers with an SFF or historical setting

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

#mswl A found-family heist team with great worldbuilding a la THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA with a more female-heavy cast

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · Sep 24

A thread of more specific #mswl items I'd love to see:

A #YA about lady knights with the feel of SONG OF THE LIONESS/Alanna of Trebond

Happy #MSWL day! I recently updated my #mswl on my website so I probably won't have that many new ones to add today, but you can check out my full list here: literallycait.tumblr.com/tagged/mswl

I know we all love medieval fantasy but I am hugely into ancient civilizations and in love with @Fall_of_Civ_Pod by @PaulMMCooper. I would LOVE stories set in or inspired by these civilizations--historical or fantasy, either is fine! Would also love nonfic on the subject! #mswl

Jessica James @literarilyjess

Favorite romance tropes that AREN’T hate-to-love, go!

rivals to lovers (not the same thing!), friends to lovers, fake dating, secret identity shenanigans, there's only one bed #mswl

Just updated my website with an extensive #mswl post for when I open to queries next week. If you're thinking of querying me, please be sure to check it out! #askagent #querytip

tooootally unrelated #mswl....

all types of wlw stories are Good and I am loving all the soft lesbians I'm seeing, but also someone please send me something where the MC is just thirsty as hell for a girl who can benchpress her
