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

#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 :)

Can I get Turning Red but make it adult literary? (I love the idea of immigrating with the cultural folk tale/magical realism element) #MSWL

Adult & YA: Lush literary fiction with a speculative twist or a healthy dose of fabulism/magic realism.

I'm not your ideal editor for high fantasy worlds, but I do love grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings, time travel, and speculative twists in both MG & YA

Mystery/adventure such as Da Vinci Code/ National Treasure. The Holiday but make it a book. Fairy tale retelling. Magical realism. 🌟✍️⭐️

A #MSWL mini thread since I'm just dipping a toe into the querying world. 🧵

I love all fiction, with a soft spot for magical realism (think 100 YEARS, of course!). Lit fic, spec fic, and sci-fi are also high on my list. Fantasy like BLACK LEOPARD. Psych fiction that slowly unravels, like RED PILL. And not always, but sometimes, a great love story.
