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"

🧞♀️Upmarket speculative fiction with magic realist vibes, comps Alix E. Harrow, Erin Morgenstern.. NO epic fantasy⚔️
🕵️Clever whodunnits with puzzles - comp KNIVES OUT.
- Mythology! Fairytales! Folklore! (Especially from non-European cultures!)
- Magical realism! Witchery! Magic rooted in nature!
- Atmospheric, gentle fantasy a la Studio Ghibli!
- Fantasy & science fiction rooted in inclusive world-building!
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).

Kim Cusack @KJCBooks12@ajones_litagent Hi Ms. Jones - I just checked out your MSWL for middle grade and in the Fiction section you mention being open to Fantasy but not under the MG heading. I'm wondering if you are open to MG fantasy as well? Thanks so much.
