If I missed your #Pitmad for #a #ya #cr #r #rs, rom-coms too, and you match my #MSWL, feel free to check my post this morning on how to query. Welcome #POC and #BVM. Also dystopian, or post-apoc. 😊

#mswl: I'm not a fan of dystopias where the heroes know they're in a dystopia. I do like dystopias that look like utopias, especially high-tech ones (Brazil, Upload).

Worldbuilding that gets creepier the more you think about it is one of my favorites.

I'd love a hopeful near future project, an optimistic dystopian tale, something that imagines a world where everything might be broken, but there is a best of humanity that survives (I can't imagine why I want this) #MSWL 5/

It's been a while since I've done a #MSWL and I try not to b/c honestly, sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it - but I know some of y'all find these useful so here goes...

In Adult SFF #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Fresh twists & unique concepts
- I love all kinds: dystopia, post apoc, space opera, high fantasy, low, magical realism, urban, etc - but it HAS to be different than what's already out there.
- Mash ups and new takes most welcome

Speculative fiction and with a lightly dystopian angle like WILDER GIRLS and WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE. Give me something so weird here it's impossible to fit in one category. #MSWL

#MSWL for the new year pt 8: survival stories or a new take on dystopian worlds. Would love something with Last of Us of Wilder Girls vibes.

#overheard two 20 somethings talking about #books yesterday. Readers still want more of the same - just different? I wonder what a #dystopian, #postapocalyptic #domestic #thriller might look like? #bookslike #mswl

My #MSWL: ALL the romance. Give me love triangles and quadrilaterals. Give me hate to love and slow burn, and firsts. Contemporary & historical & dystopian & speculative. Stories from marginalized voices and new perspectives.

Since everyone is tweeting their #MSWL, I will join in!

I would LOVE a YA dystopia with a new twist. The Hunger Games is my fave, just FYI.

Some MG with bags of heart and tons of humour, across all genres.

Graphic novels for MG/YA, any genre.

I'd love a survivalist horroresque novel or survivalist dystopian YA. Think Wilder Girls by Rory Power! Give me off the grid islands, plagues, a trip gone gone wrong, the end that begins as a whisper.

So I found my witch writer, my pirates writer, and my ballet writer this year! WOOO!!! What am I looking for next?...

...Sci-Fi, gaming, and dystopian/futuristic sci-fi. I'm not a space opera person though! Sorry! #MSWL This goes for MG and YA! =)

Thoughts: would anyone read a dystopian that takes on what might happen when - world ends - and people no longer have government barrier to raid Area 51?

Could be horror. Sci fi. But... I’m curious lol #amagenting #mswl
