Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinAlso, I know this is very specific, but I'm dying for a YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've literally been thinking about this for years...If it's a love story, even better! #ownvoices #MSWL
I’ve been looking for this for years (MG or YA)! This is my grandma’s story and a mainstay on my #MSWL.
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinI updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com
Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL
Specific #ownvoices #MSWL I’d love to see: a YA historical retelling of SOME LIKE IT HOT about a teen trans girl discovering her identity when she joins an all-girls musical group to escape vengeful mobsters
John Cusick @johnmcusickFirstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL
- Adult Gothic Horror (think Crimson Peak)
- Adult High Fantasy featuring women as leaders
- Retellings of fairytales by #OwnVoices authors!!
- Spooky MG ghost stories
- MG stories with witches and elaborate settings
In summary, my #MSWL incl. #diverse & #ownvoices works:
- #SFF, space opera, cyberpunk & UF
- #WomensFic feat. WOC esp. Latina MC
- #Horror, #suspensethriller w/ unique take on classic or gothic horror
-All #Romance esp. #LGBTQIA
John Cusick @johnmcusickSo before it gets too late, let's do some #MSWL tweets!
My eclectic YA/MG #mswl:
-space opera in the vein of FIREFLY/GoT
-MC who writes sketch comedy/performs improv
-#ownvoices, esp. immigration/refugee experiences
-supernatural/fantasy w/ emphasis on non-western cultures
-#STEM w/ female MC
-sex-positive, feminist YA
Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennetteHappy #MSWL day! Just a blanket note that I'd love to see #ownvoices subs and POC authors for every wishlist item I post today--not just the ones I specify--and in my inbox in general.
I second this for #MSWL !!!!
24/7/365 I welcome #ownvoices. I welcome all and would especially love stories by&about people of color, with disabilities (esp invisible), who have mental illness, who are LGBTQ, or who are economically disadvantaged #MSWL #wndb
