Fantasy

Like many fantasy readers, I love a good boarding school novel. I want one that tackles the Anglo-American boarding school as a tool by which socioeconomic class stratification, western imperialism, and patriarchy are taught and reinforced among impressionable children. #MSWL

#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center

“I read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

So let's talk graphic novel #MSWL ahead of me opening on 6/1. Below are just a small sample of some of my talented clients and their work.

For graphic novels, art is such a big part of it for me. pic.twitter.com/nePULFddzM

But you don't have to be an illustrator to give me graphic novels. I also love script only graphic novels #MSWL.

One thing I have noticed about my taste is I read for escape. I lean towards fantasy, or contemporary-elevated (which is not my regular every day).

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

6.) Women’s empowerment themes, especially in fantasy. Do you want to turn over old, outdated fantasy tropes from a female perspective? PLEASE DO. #MSWL

5.) Sibling relationships in fantasy or magic realism!!! Good or bad, I love them! #MSWL

3.) Fantasy with a realistic historical basis (high fantasy isn’t my thing) and/or a complex political system like the one in The Queen’s Thief series. Palace intrigue anyone? YES PLEASE. #MSWL

2.) Mental health representative fantasy. Come on people, it’s time. #MSWL

I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

Are there any SFF stories/novels about a pandemic that mostly kills white people (e.g. the reverse of the one we're living now) & its effects on society? If not, & a BIPOC writer wants to write it for YA: #MSWL
