#MSWL: YA & Adult Fiction - magical realism, southern Gothic, Gothic, vampires, fantasy of all kinds (especially in need of a contemporary fantasy), retellings, rom coms
Dana Murphy @manadurphyConsidering the fact that I basically swindled NYU’s v serious film department into giving me a degree in rom coms, my greatest joy is that this is a growing space in publishing. Please send them all to me. #MSWL twitter.com/bellcv/status/…
And then from there, have them sold to me. 😁 #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8I (and I know several other people) are very hungry for contemporary fantasy right now. Stories with magic or a hint of it that is grounded in our real world. twitter.com/sloch/status/1…
YES PLEASE #MSWL
#MSWL the next Melina Marchetta; smart, funny fiction featuring diverse main characters & casts (YA or adult); YA graphic novels (sweet romances or coming of age stories) & YA graphic memoir; adult fantasy; epistolary novels (YA or adult).
