this means love stories ♥️, horror 👻, contemporary, scifi 🤖, speculative, & more!!

RRP is known for mythology & magic, & while those remain the pillars this imprint is built on, id love to see stories that explore culture & identity in new & unexpected ways (3/6)

FOLKLORE, MYTH, and FAIRYTALE-inspired stories that tell the old tales from new perspectives, deify new gods, and give the monster their say. Would particularly love to see non-european inspirations here (but also yrs of Latin say I am a SUCKER for the greco-roman canon🏺)#mswl

Okay 📣 time for the Great Pre-Vacation #MSWL Thread of 2020!

🔥Please note that ALL the Yesses that follow ESPECIALLY include voices beyond white, cishet, able-bodied, middle-upper-class experiences—tons of these find my inbox without needing a hashtag to help! 🔥

#MSWL: SUPER thirsty for juicy, smart, book club fiction like ASK AGAIN YES, THE VANISHING HALF, SUCH A FUN AGE

YES elements: multi-generation, sibling stories, career-oriented women, sense of humor, reinterpreting classic or myth through an unsung character’s POV
