For Mystic Owl (City Owl's new imprint) I will be seeking shorter edge-of-your-seat novels involving magic, shifters, or unique paranormal creatures, and fully developed worlds. #MSWL

A magic school book similar to IN OTHER LANDS. Give me your queer and/or POC protags, your questions of morality, how society should function, fluid gender dynamics, your charming creatures, painful growing up, learning to belong swoony romance, and enduring friendships. #MSWL

Between my new found love for Oumi Janta and binge-watching Betty, I am so ready for some rollerblading/skateboarding YA magic to happen #mswl

I’m also still begging for my King Louis XIV sun king historical court intrigue with maybe a little magic? Historical Fantasy? I could go for just historical too if the writing fits! ❤️ #MSWL

In speculative fiction, I'm looking more for folklore, magical realism, surrealism, cozy fantasy, light fantasy, and atmospheric fantasy with lush world building and gorgeous prose, than traditional high/ epic fantasy. #MSWL

1.) MAGIC REALISM. Give me contemporary stories with magic or historical tales with a mythological/fairy tale emphasis! I’m especially interested in diverse mythologies (or my old favorite, anything Celtic). #MSWL

Right now I really want to see more soft fantasy. Soft characters, soft world, soft magic. If the story had a physical shape, it would be plushie. #MSWL
