I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl
1.) MAGIC REALISM. Give me contemporary stories with magic or historical tales with a mythological/fairy tale emphasis! I’m especially interested in diverse mythologies (or my old favorite, anything Celtic). #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 3/

Lorraine M.L.M🍃 @authorlorraineMI'm a huge fan of fairy tales but I've not come across a lot of these featuring marginalised characters. Are fairy tale retellings that feature diverse characters marketable in the current climate? #askDVpit
Alaina Leary Lavoie @alainaskeysMy first for @BitchMedia is about the importance of having disabled authors reimagine the fairy tale canon and write our own SFF and magic stories. @DisabledWriters #CripLit #DisabledWriters bitchmedia.org/article/review…
The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.
Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.
My favorite themes & tropes: monsters (werewolves, sirens, witches, vampires), hauntings, cults, fairytales, toxic relationships turned fatal, family dynamics, class & power imbalances, revenge, meta horror, body horror, psychological terror... #mswl
In the House in the Dark of the Woods (@LairdHunt), The Changeling (@victorlavalle), The Merry Spinster (@daniel_m_lavery): Creatively reinvented and nightmarish fairytales & folklore -- from all cultures please, not just Western! #mswl
I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL
