Would love to read something dark and gothic and black and witchy that feels like Prudence Blackwood x Ambrose Spellman meets Only Lovers Left Alive #mswl

Really in the mood for something gothic as hell, full of rot and ruin, a slow-burn romance, twists and turns, and BIPOC protagonists. #MSWL

If someone out there is writing an adult fantasy inspired by the epic tale Isis and Osiris that is romantic, angst-ridden and full of tense politics...I'm your editor.

History-inspired epic fantasy with intricate, detailed worldbuilding. I'm talking Hannibal's march on Rome, the rise of Shaka Zulu, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt, etc.

Look to history and give me some new epics! #mswl

I'd love to see high-concept, character-driven, accessible SF. #mswl

Hi Universe,

It's me. I know I ask for a lot of things, but could you be kind enough to send me a ms about black women who are witches that isn't steeped in black pain but is about a community coming together or a woman falling in love or something full of joy.

K, thnx #mswl

Seriously, all I want is space opera that gives me the same emotional highs and lows as Farscape. #mswl

Family sagas infused with magic, like @WriterLouisa's A Secret History of Witches or @EdenRoyce's "Every Good-Bye Ain't Gone" #mswl

I'm hungry for a fantasy that incorporate American folklore: Appalachian, Mississippi Delta, Gullah, etc. Our stories are rich and vibrant and we don't see enough of them in the speculative space. #mswl

Currently in the mood for lost histories, fallen gods, magic-infused cities, and dark, gothic woods...not necessarily in the same book. #mswl

I started watching The Rise of Phoenixes last night and I'm in love, which means I now want a intricate political fantasy with siblings vying for dominace, revenge, false smiles, and a love burdened by past decisions. #mswl
