Specific #MSWL request: I want a #YA ft. three brothers. An exploration of masculinity that isn't toxic. And adventure.
This is a very thinly veiled way of asking for "The Tale of the Three Brothers" but. Different.
Ok, cool, glad we're all on the same page.
I have a visceral, intense need for the most indulgently romantic book you can find. I want to watch people fall in love with a splash of "Someone Great" #MSWL
(This stems from a really vivid dream I had about Tom Holland & I falling in love, but that's neither here nor there)
My #MSWL tends to trend v contemporary bc those ideas are most immediate to me, so here are some non-contemp topics I enjoy in both #YA & #MG:
• Pirates (sea- & space-faring)
• Worlds & relationships as lush as Critical Role
• Faeries faeries faeries
• Mythological lore
I need a fake dating rom-com à la TATBILB but... just make it as gay as possible.
I need misunderstandings & people assuming someone is straight when they're actually bi w that "oh shit, were you flirting w me this whole time?" moment.
& brown. Make it v brown. #MSWL #YA #LGBT
Circling back to the Area 51 Raid: if anyone happens to have a fictionalized account of the whole night for #YA that may or may not actually end with aliens I am all about that. Weird & irreverent narratives featuring tin-hat-conspiracy kids w deep, meaningful relationships #MSWL
I am just a girl, standing in front of the internet, begging for a young #YA / upper #MG about a #Latinx girl who has to choose between a quinceañera and a sweet sixteen because Americanization™️ and all the cultural / generational drama that ensues #MSWL
Since the summer is winding down and I know you're all getting ready to go back out on sub, please consider: I have updated my #MSWL! (And pretty much everything else on my site.)
Additionally: Seeking a Friend for Coffee (aka, HMU!!! Let's HANG!!!)
Back to Work Day is here! Happy January 2, 2019!
Agents: let’s hang out 👀
A new year reminder that I’m looking for diverse #MG, #YA, and #graphicnovels - you can learn more at my #MSWL below 👇🏼
