#MSWL Something I'll be looking for when I reopen are ✨cozy New Adult fantasies✨ that blend fun, speculative elements, & romance w/spice.

I'll be looking for lots of variations including genre mixing, romcoms at magical colleges, contemporaries w/protagonists who have magic...

MG/YA #MSWL :
☑️ Horror
☑️ SFF (especially afro-futurism & magical realism variety)
☑️ Mysteries/Thrillers (would love some chilling psychological thrillers)
☑️ Historicals with a twist (spec, queer, mystery, etc.)

6) What I call speculative romance: e.g. romance in our world that also has a bit of magic. Think Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches.

7) Fantasy romance where the story is equal parts both, and the world and fantasy plot enhances the romance and vice versa.

4) Magic systems based in something really cool! Like...law, or wave theory, or color theory. I don't know, surprise me!

5) Historical romance with anachronistic voice/elements. Think A Knight's Tale, or Bridgerton. Or Alexis Hall.

#MSWL - Music Magic! Open to any form (#MG or #YA , this world or fantasy), I just need to see music magic in my inbox… I want to see characters playing instruments to channel & utilise their powers - magic pouring out of pianos, etc, people entranced by melodies…
NEED.

- magical realism
- literary fiction that feels *playful* and *joyful* about the genre, rather than snobbish and gatekeep-y. I have no fear of the weird or wacky, so long as it has something intelligent and important to say.
- fiction about unconventional relationships

- speculative fiction
(I prefer grounded, literary sci-fi + fantasy. few secondary worlds, but rather our world steeped in liminal magic and/or technology. anything creepy, toothy, gritty, strange, something that sends a shiver down your spine.)
- steampunk everything

MG Fantasy: I honestly really love it all, but am really wanting a magic school with diverse cast and magical creatures (esp dragons!!)

MG Horror: Again I love it all, but would love a summer camp setting, haunted house/school, monster hunters and sentient natural settings 4/

Dystopian: I prefer stories that have social critique, magic, or both (BLOOD LIKE MAGIC by Liselle Sambury, INTERNMENT by Samira Ahmed.)

I'm NOT a fit for apocalypse or post-apocalyptic stories.

YA and MG contemporary fantasy: My second love! I’m interested in the same topics, and will look foremost for lyrical writing and character focus, with unique but very grounded magic systems. Comp: THE NATURE OF WITCHES by Rachel Griffin.

…returning to nature & to ourselves.

I will always be drawn to international stories and settings - what is unfamiliar (& uncomfortable!) to a Western reader.

I don’t tend to rep high fantasy, but love magic & a speculative hook.

Every kind of love, please.
