- Mythology! Fairytales! Folklore! (Especially from non-European cultures!)
- Magical realism! Witchery! Magic rooted in nature!
- Atmospheric, gentle fantasy a la Studio Ghibli!
- Fantasy & science fiction rooted in inclusive world-building!

I want to read more horror with this surreal, dark fairytale vibe. The kind of horror that entrances you as much as it terrifies you. #MSWL

#MSWL while I absolutely love middle grade horror and dark fantasy, I'm seeing A LOT of it in queries. Would love to see some variety! Sci-fi, fairytale retellings, contemporary, something tragic, joyful stories, series oriented, adventure, etc

Mystery/adventure such as Da Vinci Code/ National Treasure. The Holiday but make it a book. Fairy tale retelling. Magical realism. 🌟✍️⭐️

Finally, I adore reading retellings of classics and fairytales, and I would love to rep them, too! Bring me your takes on Jane Austen, Hans Christian Andersen, Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and (need I say it) Wonderland. Anything you can think of! #MSWL

a quick FYI for my #mswl:

i love retellings (fairytale, mythology, etc.) and am always happy to see them in my box!

HOWEVER, i *do not* like super obvious retellings. they HAVE to be subtle for me to like them - think ACOTAR and ACOMAF, CINDER, or FOR THE WOLF

#mswl I'd also love a twist on mythology, gods, curses, legends, fairy tales... Put a spin on the stories we already know.

I’m fascinated with folklore, fables, fairy-tales, mythology – anything which works these elements into its narrative will definitely grab my attention, whether that’s in the crime/thriller, historical or literary space #mswl

I'd like a fairytale gender swap. Let's have a helpless male prince who needs saving by the female knight. If it's sexy, adult, and 50-75K send it here: QueryManager.com/LisaGreenQueri… #MSWL
