In the same vein...someone please send me queer Midsommar. As my brilliant coworker @jruoxichen pointed out, the plot SHOULD have been: "Florence Pugh rejects mediocre man and joins Scandinavian lesbian collective to sing crop rites and do craft." I need it. #mswl
SEND ME QUEER HORROR PROJECTS. I've got a personal soft spot for bi protagonists (because...hi), but I'm looking for horror characters/stories from every part of the LGBTQ+ community. Give me characters grappling with sexuality/gender and ALSO monsters #mswl
Countdown #MSWL Day 2:
Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.
I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.
In the YA realm, I’m really only looking for queer stories, whatever genre right now. Gimme your witches, sisters, weird families, romances, & intersectional feminists kicking ass mkay thanks.
I’m on the hunt for an MG contemporary, that, well, just makes me want to snuggle the book in a huge hug. I want feels, vulnerability, small towns, queer identities, feminism, first crushes, unique families, & kids of color, girls, and non-binary kids taking on the world.
As always with this time of year, send me all your witches. I’d love an adult or gothic, adult horror, and/or adult light fantasy with an unforgettable & unique setting, a fresh take or system of magic, and gorgeous writing. Queer always a plus.
The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.
Katie Zhao 💛 THE FALLEN HERO out 10/13 ✨ @ktzhaoauthorOne thing I'd love to see publishing do is buy more quiet stories by marginalized creators. Whenever I pitch a new project, I feel like I have to use ‼️BIG FLASHY COMPS‼️
Marginalized authors deserve to tell quiet stories, too. Happy stories. Stories where we can just...exist.
Sometimes the quiet stories can be more powerful than the flashy ones. Contemporary, historical, upmarket, literary, or women's fiction by BIPOC, LGBTQ+ authors #MSWL
I'm closed to submissions, UNLESS you have a grounded YA novel inspired by BTS about relationships within a longstanding group, about language, and about the business and artistry behind pop music. Especially if it's LGBTQIA+. Please send! Link: QueryManager.com/LaraPerkins/BT… #mswl
Julia P. McCarthy @thejumblesAll I want in this hellish timeline is a BIPOC-centered cottagecore YA novel. Give me cozy woods and mushrooms and nettle tea and mysteries and gentle queer romances!
Well, hello, #MSWL
SelineSigil @SelineSigil9Studies into healing revealed that full moon amplified the electrical charge in living cells. A sensitive voltmeter,attached to a tree picked up a faint electrical force. However, at the time of the full moon, this force soared upward on the scale. equinoxastrology.com/LunarLore.htm pic.twitter.com/70e4zE9bWr
