Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖
Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl
YA contemporary: Geek girls having adventures/life experiences #MSWL
*No taking off glasses and suddenly pretty, I love 'She's All That' as much as the last millennial, but let's throw that trope back into the 90s. GEEK GIRL PRIDE
I'd really love for some quirky, geeky nonfiction in the vein of "Of Dice and Men" or "The Lady from the Black Lagoon" but about video games, manga (CLAMP anyone?), or that explores pop culture through the lense of an influencial creator or medium or unique perspective. #MSWL
In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles:
> Period pieces with women breaking into lively professions (think TV or comedy a la I Love Lucy).
> Women in S.T.E.M
> Anything geeky but accessible
> Gender fluid, masc. of centre, and non-binary protagonists. #MSWL
Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplingerGeeky YA or adult nonfiction pop culture. #MSWL I'm talking geeky like cosplay, Star Trek, a take on manga or anime (HUGE Sailor Moon fan over here) video/board games, etc.
Looking for smart, funny & unabashedly geeky queer romcoms. Falling in love mid-RP? Theme park princesses finding each other? A heel and a face pretending to be rivals on the mat and lovers behind closed doors? Cosplayed Cap and Bucky searching for each other post-con? #MSWL
#MSWL I would REALLY love a quirky chapter book series with geeky kids, weird monsters, or strange animals (real or mythical). I would prefer this in CB, but I’m open to author/illustrator graphic novels, and MG too. Similar to THE BAD GUYS, or CATSTRONAUTS.
I'm also looking for more nonfiction--particularly smart, accessible books about feminism, science, history, or travel; and prescriptive or art/gift books with a geeky subject. Author platform preferred! #mswl
