A Quick Update for my Adult #MSWL:
Also full up here on Ad F so my requests will be less.
Still looking for that action driven Ad SF.
Full up on Ad Thrillers and Horror atm, so less requests here too.

PLEASE SEND ME YOUR HISTORICALS be them retellings, new, or ROMANCE.

Wait, I thought I was done, but then my #AuditoryMSWL decided to play some songs.

15. I said it once but I will say it again: TSwift's LOOK WHAT YOU MADE is COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO soooo I would love a gender bent retelling of that. #MSWL

11. I love retellings. So hit me with those, but tell me the ones that are not told that often. And show me something new in your retelling. #MSWL

"Dark, feminist fairy tale retelling. Something like The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter for #YA (a novel though, not short stories)." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

Please please send me an alternative history re-telling, particularly with a sort of fantastical twist. #MSWL

And speaking of, can I get a queer retelling of Far From the Madding Crowd please #mswl

It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…

I still very much love retellings/reimaginings, but I'm looking for fresh and unique ones that aren't Disney, Grimm fairytales, or classics like Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, etc... #mswl

Linda Epstein (is taking a break) @LindaEpstein · 1 Apr 2019

I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL

I would LOVE (I mean REALLY love) a feminist historical Purim re-telling. Extra points if you ship Esther & Vashti. #MSWL

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings
