#MSWL time. Does anyone remember Cybersix? It was a comic, I watched the television series. I'd love to see another gender-bending story (graphic novel or fiction) in my inbox. Also think Nikita with Maggie Q.
Rounding off my #MSWL tweets today, in NF I’m looking for the following topical themes:
-cultural criticism (e.g. gender, race, sexuality)
-YA books about the +/- effects of the beauty industry
-parenting, reproductive health, physical wellness
#MSWL In adult fiction I'm looking for:
-LIFE IN PIECES in book form (& ensemble casts)
-something commercial with delicious vacation drama
-characters with an entrepreneurial spirit (again and always)
-clever arc structures and use of form
#MSWL Within romcoms, I’m looking for:
-characters with clear entrepreneurial goals
-STEM components and smart characters
-small cozy towns or international travel
#MSWL GNs that:
-play with myths, magic, the elements
-have strong female characters
-feature heartwarming story arcs
-have a strong use of color
In short, if you have a GN, pitch me!
#MSWL I would love to read more YA non-fiction graphic novels that:
-showcase proactive groups of people (think GIRLS WHO RUN THE WORLD)
-deal with serious topics (reproductive rights, loss, mental illness, etc.) in a positive way (can be fiction too)
-are inspiring memoirs
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieWith #DVpit just around the corner, I want to share a few more #MSWL asks over the next week.
A thread. 🔖
#MSWL I want to grow my list of comic creators. I’d love to see protagonists/characters who are:
-have various body types
-come from marginalized communities
-struggle with mental illness
-defy gendered stereotypes + representation
Brit Brooks-Perilli @Britny_PerilliIllustrated/graphic novel style non-fiction is something that I really want to see more of in my inbox!
Cookbooks and food are great, but I would love to see author/illustrator teams work on other topics as well like film, books, nature, science, pop culture, etc. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/tFCywHcKIF
This #MSWL is a big ask for me as well! You don't see enough of these.
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieWriters! If you had to describe your first chapter in gif form, which gif would you use?

#BellLetsTalk is a great way to generate awareness. My #MSWL includes diverse representation of mental health issues both in fiction and non-fiction. Send me those queries. Let's end the stigma in as many ways as possible! 🙂
