#MSWL: I'd love a YA in the vein of #SeeYouYesterday. Set in the hot center of a contemporary American city. Give me the sounds, sights, flavors of the place, all in the middle of the summer. Make the stakes as high as THUG. Make it shine with magic/fantasy. Blend the genres.
4. I want a cinematic, high concept fantasy unlike anything I have seen before. I love unlikable ladies (but they must still be relatable), and I would love a single POV. Character driven is the BEST for me. With literary-esque writing. #MSWL
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaPublishing, on behalf of the LGBTQReads Tumblr, please publish more:
1. Harry Potter, but gay, especially wlw
2. "Something mlm like the Raven Boys," because then they read THE WICKER KING and love it and then I'm stuck
3. ownvoices m/m fantasy
4. Lady knights
Hello please consider this whole thread a #mswl for me personally
Amy Fitzgerald @Amy_Ariel_Fitz2 for 2 so far: Emilia Clarke noting "She's not mad, she's traumatized" is an equally pointed departure from how the dudes insist on framing things.
I don't get to acquire much fantasy BUT WHEN I DO it's got female characters with nuance as well as grit, trauma fallout and mental health issues depicted realistically, and no dudes getting away with killing their girlfriends #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaTake all your frustration with S8 of #GoT and channel it into writing a beautiful and detailed epic fantasy full of people of color and female complexity that doesn’t hinge on sexual violence. Then send it to me. #mswl
Because I was talking about it today and still haven't seen any in my #queries. I'm still looking for #fantasy in adult and young adult inspired by Mesoamerican folklore. #MSWL realmofhistory.com/2018/08/01/12-… via @RealmofHistory
So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?
Ayana Gray @AyanaGrayHonestly:
1) This is a MOOD.
2) I really want a YA fantasy with girls of color training to be badasses inspired by this.
TLDR: I WILL ALWAYS STAN GIRLS WITH WEAPONS. #BlackGirlMagic #amwriting pic.twitter.com/4kPrupWTwa
