After Trump’s bizarre statement about exchanging love letters w/ Kim Jong Un, I can’t help thinking it‘d be an interesting SFF novel idea: 2 unstable dictators w/ huge egos inherit world-ending arsenals & a fraught standoff, begin a diplomatic correspondence, & fall in love

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL

#MSWL High-concept, diverse, fantasy THREE MUSKETEERS retelling

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 27 Sep 2018

How about some middle grade #MSWL today?

- Classic feel + animal POV (ONE AND ONLY IVAN, PAX)
- Fantasy, both lighthearted and dark (Thickety series, UNICORN QUEST)
- Quirky + puzzles + complex plots (Mysterious Benedict Society, YORK)
- Historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE)

More QPOC books and authors please! Contemporary, historical and/or fantasy! #mswl

And while on the topic of my nostalgia, I'd love a SF/F reminiscent of things like Cowboy Bebop, FMA:Brotherhood, or even Magic the Gathering. Let your geek flag fly! #MSWL

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · 26 Sep 2018

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 26 Sep 2018

While we’re getting to know each other, how about some #mswl? Today I’ll talk about YA:

- Contemporary with earnest, engaging voices (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, TO ALL THE BOYS, DUMPLIN’)
- Lush fantasy (CARAVAL, Grisha series)
- Sassy girl detective a la Veronica Mars
(1/2)

I'd love to see some edgy New Adult romance with SFF or thriller type flair #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

@hannahnpbowman @maxgladstone don't forget how centaurs and merfolk aren't classified as people and everyone's like oh that's fine

Re: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL

It's late on Saturday and I'm thinking about sci fi, fantasy and YA fantasy after reading an epic ton of queries this last week. I'm going to kick your butt a bit here, okay? If you don't want that, scroll on. A thread #MSWL
