Here's a wonderful #MSWL from @PinaRamona:

"I want some magical realism and/or fabulism! YA/Crossover Adult like Like Water for Chocolate, The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina, & The Water Dancer, or MG stories in the vein of anime Spirited Away & Princess Mononoke"

Another #MSWL from @EmilyKaitlinnn!

"I'm looking for heists, competitions, and assassin novels in MG/YA/Crossover Adult. With the vibes of Uncharted, The Mummy, or The Inheritance Games. This could be magical realism or fabulism, fantasy, or even really interesting contemp"

I'm very intrigued by tea magic! I'd love to see YA along the lines of A MAGIC STEEPED IN POISON. #MSWL

I'd love to see MG books about growing up along the lines of Turning Red, or a layered family story like Encanto — contemporary or with a magical element! #MSWL

More in fiction: joyous LGBTQ+ characters. Contemporary, literary takes on the Western that critique genre tropes. Speculative/magical realism elements that are grounded in the “real” world (think Nothing To See Here, The Pisces)

This one could be because I want tacos, but give me food #MSWL. Either a magic system based on food, or a enemies to lovers about rival taco trucks. Heck it doesn't even have to be about tacos. (I just want to eat this taco image).

In YA I’m looking for contemporary from underrepresented voices, grounded fantasy/horror/magical realism – always stories that have an engaging commercial plot, and deeper themes #MSWL #YA

I am trying out Query Manager! Please submit to me at QueryManager.com/PamGruberIGLA

I’m particularly eager for MG – contemporary stories, stories with a dash of magic, and more literary fantasy (the sort of books that are magical for kids and their adults) #MSWL #MG

#MSWL if you have a story set in alternate Victorian/modern England that has elements of secret societies, magical realism, dark academia, or crime, please send it to me. England is preferable, but I'm open to other locations :)
