An engaging adult nonfiction project about a historical figure(s) whose story hasn't been told. (Same goes for a picture book bio.) My dream would be an adult bio with a science component, like The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. #MSWL
Retellings - Give me your obscure or different retellings where the princess saves the prince (or the other princess 😉) where it's clear it's a retelling but at the same time completely unique (like Cinder) #MSWL
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansHi Universe,
It's me. I know I ask for a lot of things, but could you be kind enough to send me a ms about black women who are witches that isn't steeped in black pain but is about a community coming together or a woman falling in love or something full of joy.
K, thnx #mswl
Because it's a perennial #mswl
#MSWL. Looking for romantic comedies and women's fiction that is Up Lit and deals with female relationships and family secrets. I also enjoy historical fiction. Would also love to find some Middle Grade. And I love stories set in the South and Southern Gothics.
Dark fantasy or magical realism à la Pan’s Labryinth is another love of mine. I’ve been reading the novelization by Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke, and it has that creepy, ethereal feel of magical realism and folklore mixed with a dash of horror. #MSWL Again YA/MG ONLY.
This is going to seem totally random - But I'd love a crime fighting grannies book. Like by day they are the needlepoint club of Shady Oaks retirement, but at night they hunt down criminals and deliver them to the local police station #MSWL
You know what’s amazing? Tweeting out your #MSWL and realizing that it basically resembles the list you already represent. #livingthedream so, if you want to know what kind of books I like, see this: publishersmarketplace.com/members/renaro…
Always a sucker for misfit groups in MG or YA. Think ride or die friends, friends who are together because they're all they have, people pushed into situations where they realize, hey, we actually need each other.
If you comp Stranger Things, I may die.
But not just ghost stories, but anything dark and creepy. I just watched We Have Always Lived in the Castle (which is fantastic, btw), so creepy/gothic with an unreliable narrator is a plus. #MSWL YA/MG only.
I'm still building my MG list. Send me your MG projects!!! I'm also looking for YA contemporary, especially #OwnVoices and/or #diversity. And I really, really want more adult thrillers, horror, rom-coms, and contemporary romances. #MSWL 2/2 #writingcommunity #amquerying
