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 still very much love retellings/reimaginings, but I'm looking for fresh and unique ones that aren't Disney, Grimm fairytales, or classics like Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, etc... #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).
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerWriters, I have a few kidlit #mswl items I'd love to see in 2019!
-funny, contemp YA a la WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, HOT DOG GIRL, HERETICS ANONYMOUS
-LatinX characters! Please!
-Grounded dark fantasy, a la SAWKILL GIRLS, THE DEVOURING GRAY, THE RAVEN BOYS
Victoria Marini @LitAgentMariniI love magicians / alchemy of the obsessive, dark tradition rather than the quaint and plucky. THE PRESTIGE more than WIZARD OF OZ #MSWL
Same. YA or adult. #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickFirstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerThis is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Yes, please. #MSWL
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween#MSWL an incredibly lush, romantic YA fantasy; novels with "evil boyfriends" (think Damon Salvatore); romantic comedies; millennial focused non-fiction, ripped from the headlines historicals
#MSWL would like to amend to "evil loves who are sometimes redemptive" :D
