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
In nonfiction, I’m looking for cookbooks and gift books. I’m particularly interested cookbooks of traditional recipes with a modern flair. In gift books I’d love to see something fun and geeky, or that explore unique and odd topics. #MSWL
I'd also love to see fantasy worlds that draw on time periods and cultures that we don't traditionally see. I love stories about royalty, like any fantasy geek, but I'd be super interested in fantasy that explores other forms of government as well. #MSWL
