Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_GuanI can’t stop thinking about this.
Someone write me a reverse, PoC Howard Carter #SFF novel where cultural artifacts are repatriated to their rightful inheritors. Give me the fantasy or future tech inverse heist novel. #MSWL twitter.com/_iwakeli_i/sta…
Megan Ilnitzki @megilnitIdk if #MSWLMonday is a thing, but as long as we’re all on lock down, I’ve decided I’m going to throw a few #MSWL items out into the universe every week. I can’t take unagented submissions, but agent friends, here’s a few things I’d love to see in my inbox right now:
A MG with Sandlot vibes. I’m missing baseball so hardcore right now. ⚾️ #mswl
As mentioned at the start of this thread, there are so many amazing female figures in mythology (or history) whose stories have been overlooked/untold. I would love to work on a book like CIRCE or THE LOST QUEEN--but maybe moving east for the source of inspiration #MSWL
I desperately want to go to space right now! I love warm, character-driven adventures a la Becky Chambers, and more sweeping space operas. Give me your ragtag crews and seemingly impossible odds, battles and hijinks (and..ahem...some romance) #MSWL
I am never going to stop loving fairytale-inspired stories like SPINNING SILVER. I want dark woods and woodsy magic, monsters that aren't what they seem, characters who take their destinies into their own hands, romance and danger, and a HEA #MSWL
Ever since I became an editor, I've wanted a GARDEN SPELLS-style project--a story about tangled family ties and old friendships, about how people fracture and mend, steeped in magic and charm and set in a town that could be anywhere, and yet... #MSWL
I'm craving THE CITY OF BRASS-style rich and intricate fantasy, with complicated family dynamics, stark political tension, sweeping romance, and hard loss; stories that (respectfully) wed historical inspiration and folklore with unexpected magic and major stakes #MSWL
@VonBrooklyn forwarded me a very cool email talking about Spring Goddesses Persephone, Flora, and Hara Ke, and honestly, all of them were #MSWL (but we agreed especially Hara Ke and her dragons)! It also made me realize I haven't done a MSWL thread in a long time.
I would love to see a funny, original #UF (urban fantasy) romance. Deets on how to query me here: cityowlpress.com/queries/ Deets on my preferences here: enigmaticeditor.blogspot.com/p/likesdislike… #MSWL #querytip
