Time for more #MSWL! In terms of categories, I am really hungry for MG. Stand-alone or series, classic-feeling or not, contemporary or historical, mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, adventure - I’d like to see more MG!
Andrea Williams @AndreaWillWriteToday, my first piece for @bustle pubbed. It's about the lack of military-themed historical fiction that centers black women; it touches on the same biases that @mirajacob discusses in her thread. It is important reading.
I want more YA nonfiction! #mswl A deep dive into a really interesting part of history that has modern resonance; an investigation into a recent news event; a cool historical anthology; a topical memoir; books by real inspiring teens; how-to books & guide books. Send to me!

L i v @LivforbooksIt angers me that no one has made a historical-fiction apocalypse book. Do you understand the fookin potential? Why is the apocalypse only set in present time??
You’re telling me ZOMBIES or an epidemic wouldn’t be “”realistic”” in the past?? Open your MIND, BRO. IT’S FICTION
Bridget Smith @bredalotI have been rereading CODE NAME VERITY for the first time since my initial flurry of passion for it, and I still have the same reaction: good Jesus Christ what a VOICE.
My #mswl always includes historical fiction, but I want to have *this* reaction to it. I want a voice that's vibrant and ALIVE, that feels immediately like a person I could know, that makes the quiet parts feel intimate and the stakes feel personal.
As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl
