I listen to too much music and read too many books, and I get to do both at work as an editor at Amberjack Publishing (my opinions, of course, are my own!).
Cassandra Farrin 🐥 @CassaCassaCassaLike, I'd love a funny novel about ancient Japan's poetry contests full of clever wordplay and whining by the teams afterward to the judge about how the other guys cheated
Or a quiet story about post-Fukushima, post-tsunami Japan.
Or plenty of other unwritten moments.
That would be amazeballs! #mswl fr
Thao Le @ThaoLe8I'm not crying, you are! 😭❤😭❤ this feels even more special to me because they are Vietnamese. #MSWL twitter.com/SylvanCreekmor…
Someone please write this for the entire chain of us who would kill just to read it, let alone work on it. #mswl
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa@Cherrita_Lee I have that one on my list, too!! Cannot wait!
Oh, it is everything. The author drops hints of slavic folk lore (Dziwożona, Rusulka, oh my! 😍), and I died of happiness. You'd love the religious themes, too. Remember my #mswl for slavic retellings and folklore? This soothes that itch nicely. @glitzandshadows is marvelous.
EE Ottoman @acosmistmachineI've said it before and I will say it again, I think academic rivals to lovers is a chronically underused trope.
#mswl ... I've heard from a professor friend some crazy tales about academia. I want it in book form, too!
Real talk #MSWL: Black women with other races and genders. I want a book that reflects my reality and family.
I still get surprise from older family members who learn my husband isn't Black, or that I dated a Mexican girl in middle school. We can do better than this. We must.
#MSWL Underrepresented minority and/or interracial romance, gene hacking, modernized Slavic heroic quest, characters with identities that span communities & their struggles, characters with East Asian, Slavic, and African heritage, & dark fairy tale retellings. MG, YA, Adult.
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI will be posting a thread of #MSWL items for @amberjackpub later today. -Agents- may direct subs to firstname.lastname@example.org (include SUBMISSIONS in subject line). Gentle reminder to writers that this is not a pitching contest.
Here's our official #MSWL! I'm particularly into diverse YA/Adult books, being a biracial/Black woman in an interracial relationship, so send lots our way! I'll post a few of my own personal wish list items later tonight!
