Is it still #MSWL day?
Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”
As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!
It's #mswl day! Ok, so...
- queer girl contemp realistic graphic novels in YA
- & lgbtq+ characters and stories in any format and genre for any age, but especially MG
- found/chosen family narratives in YA
- sex-positive YA
- Own Voices stories w/ South & Central America settings
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13Still looking for an Atlantis retelling! Would love it to have the humor and visual awesomeness of the movie (a steampunk alchemy Atlantis would be SO COOL) #MSWL pic.twitter.com/5S9xJvfxwP
Just had a great brainstorming meeting with the gals so, to completely rip-off of @thejumbles: #MSWL stories about death & dying & grief, family, and hope à la THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"
Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette#MSWL A novel--for any age group--about the breaking point in a friendship or family relationship. Tell me about having the strength to end contact with someone who can't be helped/is actively toxic. Relatedly: a book about intentional familial estrangement and its effects.
#MSWL By the way, the person doing the ending can be decisive AND devastated. It happens all the time! The agony comes before and after the decision is made, but that doesn't mean the decision isn't a clear one.

I'd love a world like Fullmetal Alchemist. Alchemy is a HUGE hook for me! #MSWL I also love the family aspect and struggle the characters go through. It's not all happiness but it's not straight success either. Great confusion in morals here
#MSWL historical fiction from all around the world (I love my western-front WWII but there's more to life than that!); campus novels, especially about first-gen students; high-concept/speculative lit fiction like Age of Miracles or Station 11; family dramas always and forever
Plot & character driven stories of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, MODERN LOVERS, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING etc #mswl
