Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorWhen her sultan husband died, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt hid the news from his aides, signed the orders in his name, rallied the army, shattered the Seventh Crusade, imprisoned the mightiest monarch in the world—Louis IX—and ransomed him back to France.
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguI don't know if I shout about this loud enough: I DO represent Adult SFF and I WANT IT very very badly. I'm looking for fantasy like THE POPPY WAR, SPINNING SILVER, and JADE CITY. Sci-fi like VIGILANCE and THE PREY OF GODS.
YES TO CROSSOVER SFF #mswl
Nina Moreno @Nina_Writesimagine a Latinx anthology of stories that all take place in one changing town through generations and is drenched in magical realism, JUST IMAGINE IT WITH ME
Mara Delgado-Sanchez mostly away 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterWould love an own voices Roma story set in/around Sacromonte, Granada! It would be lovely if it had a touch of fantasy too, but interested in more Roma stories! #mswl
Also would love a story set in/around/inspired by The Alhambra. One of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever been to and so rich with history. There’s a lot of fabric to pull from here for own voices too! #mswl
Mara Delgado-Sanchez mostly away 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterAladdin-inspired/Aladdin retellings are on my #mswl. I’d love to find some! 😍 pic.twitter.com/J6GdXf0JI1

Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🔜 BookCon 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterI’d read this! With a spin for genre fiction too, and/or YA! #mswl
Aladdin-inspired/Aladdin retellings are on my #mswl. I’d love to find some! 😍
L. D. Lewis 🦊 @EllethevillainThe world needs more botanical fiction. More stories about Victorian orchid hunting and the horrors of obsession and forests of explorers entombed in carnivorous trees for treading in places they don't belong.
I also like archaeologists and treasure hunting stories!! Give me something like The Mummy or Indiana Jones in book form. Bonus if this is somehow turned into a romance! I’d love to see a YA too. #MSWL
I’d love to have a YA set in Ancient Egypt. It can be historical, or a YA fantasy with magic, and gods and all the details. This is something I’ve always wanted to read! Send me some! #MSWL
I love YA fantasy and I’m looking for diverse stories and #ownvoices here. Where are the Latinx witches and kingdoms? Take me to places based off of cultures like my own, and not like my own. I like contemp, court intrigue, plot twists and tropes (and spins on tropes too) #MSWL
I love myths, legends and fairytales. I’d love to see some retellings or adaptations. They can be contemporary, historical, fantasy, etc. #MSWL
I’m also looking for romcoms in both, YA and adult! I like them to have an interesting angle, not just stay in the corporate world, or high school (drama club, sports team, etc)! #MSWL
Mara Delgado 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterSince I’m actively acquiring, here’s a bit of my mswl. A couple of things:
1. Diverse and Own Voices stories are always welcome in my inbox
2. Please don’t pitch me on twitter.
3. And of note, I’m only accepting agented submissions at this time!
I’m looking for historical romance that is warm and tropey, high concept and engaging. I also like high concept historical romance that goes dark and explores characters a la Kerrigan Byrne. Where are the diverse and #ownvoices historicals? #MSWL
