Magical realism and an atmospheric read round out today's #MSWL.

Also still looking for my THIRTEENTH YEAR comp and my Southern Gothic book.

#MSWL also thinking I want a magical realism book.

Honestly one of the best novels I’ve ever read. Pick up @pengshepherd’s book! twitter.com/pengshepherd/s…

I talk a lot about how my favorite kind of literary fiction blends genres, pulling the speculative or a bit of magic into it.

And this one is a perfect, stunning example of that.

More books like @pengshepherd’s in my query box, please. #MSWL

Okay, this will be my last #mswl for a little while, but man I love multi gen family drama. If there's a nice mystery in there, or even some well placed magic - I'm in! xoxo #writingcommmunity

#MSWL Adventurous contemporary MG's with heart. A little magical realism is always welcome too!!

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · Apr 22

I am opening to YA fantasy and contemporary queries! On my YA #MSWL: fantasies that are entirely new worlds,new fairytales. No generic regency-style fantasy worlds. Bring me new applications of/restrictions on new magic, uncommonly featured stars of the story, relevant parallels.

It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…

I have a vague idea of a millennial Practical Magic-esque book I'd love to read - friends/roommates working, dating, paying off their debt, saging their apartment & charging their crystals. (Or maybe I've just lived in LA too long? 🤷‍♀️)

Hali Baumstein @halibaumstein · Apr 12

And in YA fantasy, I’m always looking for a lush, fully realized world that feels fresh and new somehow—but also for compelling characters who will root the reader in the story. I’m always game for a really inventive, smart magic system, too. #MSWL

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I am almost completely caught up on queries. This means I'm HUNGRY. So even though it's not an official #MSWL day, in this thread I'm going to link to old wishlist items I still want and add some new ones!

Overall I'm craving unique takes on magic and worldbuilding, protagonists who struggle to acquire their ultimately hard-won skillsets, gorgeous prose, and narratives that ask topical questions or reframe old ones - especially from under-repped voices. #MSWL
