13. Magical Realism meets THE THIRTEENTH YEAR. My love of mermaids is not a well kept secret. I would love to see something that taps into it. Something that speaks to this image, and is atmospheric and romantic. #MSWL

Magical realism and an atmospheric read round out today's #MSWL.

Also still looking for my THIRTEENTH YEAR comp and my Southern Gothic book.

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

Middle Grade.

Contemporary, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Magical Realism, Horror, Historical, and everything in between.

I want it all.

In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl

I’d love to learn more about the Latinx experience and hope to see more literary or commercial fiction submissions of heartfelt contemporary novels for adults featuring Latinx characters, Latinx family stories or thrillers, adventures, fantasy, and magical realism #mswl

I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL
