I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019

In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy

I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL

Yesterday I read BURN FOR ME by @ilona_andrews and I think I have found a new favorite romance series. It is also exactly what I mean when I say I want paranormal or contemporary fantasy that feels new and different. I want more like this! #mswl

I just listened to a story about The Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Circle, and now I desperately want to read a SFF that features an intergalactic version of this amazing place. Maybe it’s a heist book?! #mswl

Day 4 of #25DaysofMSWL: I want Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix in a dark thriller-esque kind of fantasy. Less alien involvement, more character driven reasons for the change. #MSWL

I'm hungry for a fantasy that incorporate American folklore: Appalachian, Mississippi Delta, Gullah, etc. Our stories are rich and vibrant and we don't see enough of them in the speculative space. #mswl

Red Dead Redemption 2 is life changing. That is all. If anyone has written a fantasy novel with a Western feel/setting/influence. Please send it to me, I’d love to read it #RDR2 #MSWL

now that i’m officially done with FMA:B i just want to say that at the tippy-top of my #mswl are lawful neutral female characters like general olivier armstrong and postcolonial SFF that breaks my heart and puts it back together again

My #mswl now includes a fantasy set in a riding school, from the POV of one of the teachers, with at least one of the horses named Applesauce.

And I am so not kidding. @awfulagent hosted editors from a major sf imprint for lunch today. This is the synthesis.
