Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI won't say just because this is my professional Twitter but I will say I was younger than expected and my German mother had already been telling me about periods for years.

I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL

First of all, how dare you, second of all I have been #MSWL-ing this forever, and someday my dream will come true!
Because I was talking about it today and still haven't seen any in my #queries. I'm still looking for #fantasy in adult and young adult inspired by Mesoamerican folklore. #MSWL realmofhistory.com/2018/08/01/12-… via @RealmofHistory
Rick Wayne @RickWayneWritesI wrote last summer about a genre of fantastic art that emerged a few years ago (and has since exploded) and what that might say about our era. I dubbed it “Encountering the Old Gods.” The original gallery was quite large. Here are a few more.
This is Precisely My Jam. #mswl
So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?
So, I mention that I like horror of the downright creepy variety. This will give you a sense of what that would be. As soon as I saw the trailer for this game I almost evil laughed 😉 👻💀 supermassivegames.com/games/man-of-m… #MSWL #YAhorror #ghostship #manofmedan @SuperMGames
