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*
Rose🌹 @rosechoninetflix movie idea: 2 girls are competing against each other for a guy & they end up falling in love with each other instead...haters to lovers story that all the sapphics want
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
Forbidden Art Hacks(tm) @CryptoCrystalshot take but you write gay relationships the same way you write straight ones. You don't HAVE to get into the "facing the hardships of being a same-gender couple" aspect in your fiction. I would encourage you not to anyway bc im tired of gay tragedy i want happy lesbians, Harold
Today's #MSWL, happy lesbians
Martha Mihalick @MarthaMihalickWhy are there not more YA novels about teen Olympians, I ask you? pic.twitter.com/7MavGmwKRQ
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI love fairytales, the darker and more dangerous the better.
I love stories about girls with troubled pasts.
Stories about magic, and its cost.
Take me on a journey that makes me never want to come home.
Magic that has a price, and situations that make it worth the risk. So much yes. #mswl
