5.) Sibling relationships in fantasy or magic realism!!! Good or bad, I love them! #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

Let's try that again! Writers! During this quagmire of a time, maybe you want to check out my #MSWL ? I'd love a story to sweep me off my feet, away from (gestures) all of this manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/magg…

Agent friends, For what it's worth, I'm still reviewing submissions from my couch if you're still submitting! On the lookout esp for heartwarming, literary MG novels, particularly contemporary realistic, fantasy, and magical realism. Stay safe and healthy! #mswl

Weekly PSA that I want more kidlit stories in my query box by Latinx authors.

Especially if they're magical realism.

It's been a while since I've done a #MSWL and I try not to b/c honestly, sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it - but I know some of y'all find these useful so here goes...

In Adult SFF #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Fresh twists & unique concepts
- I love all kinds: dystopia, post apoc, space opera, high fantasy, low, magical realism, urban, etc - but it HAS to be different than what's already out there.
- Mash ups and new takes most welcome
