Danielle Burby @DanielleBurbyWhat I absolutely love about this trend of Tidying Up, Queer Eye, and Great British Bake Off is that it moves us away from cynicism and cutting people down into a mode of kindness, support, and lifting each other up. So so much more of this moving forward please.
This is a big #MSWL mood for me in 2019! Let’s have some warmth, hope, and good genuine fun.
🦌Elle🎄Grittymas Is Coming🎄Gato🦌 @ellle_emI want more small stories in epic settings
What I mean: fantasy worlds, galaxy-spanning space confederacies, magical kingdoms, living cities, etc. etc. etc. as settings but a focus on small stories within those settings
Eternal #MSWL! I love a different genre’s story in an SFF setting—especially if the author has cleverly teased out some smart interactions between the two.
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinOooh, #MSWL day! I don’t have a ton of time to pop in today, but check out past tweets or my (up-to-date!) post on the site, linked in my profile. But while I’m here...
Bring me a YA romance that reads like your favorite fanfic. High-concept premise (fake relationship? Austen retelling? Whatever!), slow burn, Big OTP Energy. #mswl
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaPublishers, please consider buying more queer Harry Potter-ish books because wow do I get a lot of requests for them on the LGBTQReads Tumblr.
Also, you really need Sapphic YA vampires. Pretty sure @whimsicallyours will write them for you if you ask nicely.
I am MORE THAN WILLING to consider buying ALL OF THESE #mswl *stares at inbox*
rachel syme @rachsymelunchtime thought: lately been getting some young writers asking for advice and i don't feel totally equipped to dispense it but i will say one area that is wide open should you choose to make it your milieu is hidden or forgotten or undertold stories of women of the past
I wants them, my preciouses. Fiction or nonfiction! (And teen or middle grade, as always!) #mswl
Penny Moore @precociouspennyIn honor of the upcoming royal wedding, I’d love to see a modern day royalty related contemporary YA romance featuring POCs in my inbox!!! #MSWL
*shouts from the rooftop* ME TOO FOR THE RECORD #mswl
Penny Moore @precociouspennyWhat I'm currently looking for:
1) Culturally rich MG contemporary that will make me ugly cry.
2) Culturally rich YA fantasy or contemporary with unapologetic female protagonists who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. #MSWL
Eternal #mswl !!!
