Writers: I want all your quirky coming of age (adult) novels. If itโ€™s slipstream, speculative, weird, dreamy, send it my way. I want witches. I would like to see anything that gets weird in similar ways to Daisy Johnson. If it feels like a punch to my face, great! #mswl

(3) inspired by Far From the Madding Crowd, I really want THE LOVE SQUARE to become a thing! When there are 4 not 3 involved in a tangle of romance and drama, with whatever mix of genders. There is so much mayhem to be had! Such higher stakes than the triangle of yore! #MSWL #YA

Attention #YA writers! A few things Iโ€™d love to see in my inbox:
1) Millennial nuns (Iโ€™ll always be waiting for this one)
2) 20th cent. historical set during one of the dictatorships in either Chile or Argentina
And one more that deserves its own tweet....#MSWL #wishlistwednesday

Just want to make #mswl twitter aware that I love astrology, occult, spiritual, self help books & went to namaste bookshop pretty much every week pre-covid (not to ~brag~)- hereโ€™s pics of my beloved tarot of the gnomes set for fun:

overall: I represent mostly-adult, mostly-fiction across the literary-commercial spectrum from weirdo short stories to "book club" novels to historical fiction to trade romance. I *rarely* read thrillers or hard SFF. You can query me right here: aevitascreative.com/contact/ #MSWL

prose-forward crossover speculative fiction that traffics in "what-if"s, wonder, & what the inimitable @clarebeams calls "the living strangeness of the world" #MSWL
