Sasstral Projection @CarolinePerny@jruoxichen Elder banshee aunties teaching fledgling banshees how to perfect their ethereal shrieks! A chapter where everyone contracts the same cold and all the banshees temporarily loose their voices and must chug honeyed tea! MOAR VENGEFUL YELLING!
this has now fixed in my head as an actual #MSWL
BANSHEE PALACE: soap opera energy, palace intrigue, queer banshee romances, dialogue worthy of a Chinese period drama. misandry in the time of vengeance. I want it.

I've loved John Knowles since middle school. If you could call your MS "A Separate Peace" for Christian teens, I want to read it. I'm not sure how you'd make it "Christian," but I work for a Christian press, so I have to have some faith element. Just don't be cheesy :). #MSWL
One specific #MSWL for Christian #YA: I live in a small southern town, and I'd love a narrator with that undercurrent of commentary on everyone else and their "kin" who learns the hard way that the crazies around her are HER PEOPLE. Be sure to include a covered dish scene.
For #contemporary #YA, smart, humorous, introspective first person is more likely to draw me in, but I can fall in love with a sweet, dreamy voice, too. My tolerance for sap and cliche is pretty low, so be very careful with those. #MSWL
I love Lloyd Alexander's simple, beautiful characters and the grace with which he treats even his villains, but most of all, I love his themes of honor being found among the lowly. I would love to work on a MS that makes me feel like I've found a new Prydain. #MSWL
Lisa Dunn @AuthorLisaDunnWith #FaithPitch coming up in a few weeks, I want to share a few #MSWL items... twitter.com/Faith_Pitch/st…
I'm just not into angels. Same goes for demons, werewolves, vampires, witches, and memoir, especially when pronounced meh-MWAH. anti-#MSWL
Sarah Olson 📚🔬 @ReadMoreScienceIf I'm learning anything about the religion vs. science debate, it's that men seem to be the only ones involved in the conversation.
We need more books by women on this subject. We need a new voices, a fresh perspective, a modern-day feminist lens.
...big time #MSWL. Women, nonbinary, and POC scientists and religious leaders discussing compatibility of sciand religion.
Autostraddle @autostraddleNatasha Lyonne’s #RussianDoll is the darkest, funniest, most comforting show of 2019 so far. bit.ly/2RMqNi7 pic.twitter.com/w7z05HLpC3
YES! THIS! Also, I really want to work on some speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl
Lydia Sharp ☕❄💙 @lydia_sharpone of my lesbian friends just told me about how she was at a Cher concert last night and called it a Cherventure bc a fight broke out but it was ok bc a gay dude stopped it and she's like "I was being watched over by my fairy god gay"
what I'm saying is I have the best friends
and now I want someone to write a YA about a lesbian at a Cher concert who meets her fairy god gay, please and thank you much
Rowenna Miller @RowennaMHow did the bookseller in Beauty and the Beast stay in business? The whole town’s like “reading huh weird” and he just lends and gives books away to his only customer.
This is prob adult and not YA but I still totally want Beauty and the Beast from the bookseller’s POV! #mswl 👇
