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

Current #MSWL: raunchy fairytales. Can we make it happen?

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

FOLKLORE, MYTH, and FAIRYTALE-inspired stories that tell the old tales from new perspectives, deify new gods, and give the monster their say. Would particularly love to see non-european inspirations here (but also yrs of Latin say I am a SUCKER for the greco-roman canon🏺)#mswl

Literary or fairytale #retellings – but they have to really stand out and bring something new. Bonus for more under-the-radar or lesser-told tales or mashups. #MSWL

I call my taste "timeless meets timely" meaning I like books that lean into a genre or trope but spin it for a modern reader. Fairytales? Princesses? Magical creatures? Sci-fi adventures? Great! Update it. #MSWL

Carina Press is holding a pitch event on Nov. 30 for our Adores line of LGBTQ+ contemporaries. For this line, we don't require the full manuscript to submit, nor do we require you to have an agent. And we're providing feedback on requested submissions! twitter.com/Write4Harlequi…

For Carina Adores, some of the tropes that will grab my eye include attraction of opposites, cross class, fake relationship, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers, secret agenda, second chance, road trip, forced proximity, fairy tale retelling. Low angst stories only. #MSWL

Current mood: MAJOR Halloween vibes.👻🎃🪦 I want all things spooky, eerie, haunted. My favorite type of read at the moment is Emily Carroll's fairytale-esque horror graphic novels and Mexican Gothic. I devoured Netflix's Haunting of Hill House and can't wait for the next. #mswl

okay, you’ve got a book deal to retell a story that ISNT king arthur, robin hood, shakespeare anything, or jane austen anything. what story are you writing?

This is my favorite prompt. If you’re writing a retelling that is queer, unexpected, just plain ol’ weird, or using an obscure fairytale from literally any culture but especially non-western, I totally want it in my inbox. #MSWL

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

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/
