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.
Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🔜 BookCon 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterI’d read this! With a spin for genre fiction too, and/or YA! #mswl
Aladdin-inspired/Aladdin retellings are on my #mswl. I’d love to find some! 😍
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
Léonicka @leonickaThese books also date as far back as the 1970s. So clearly the fairytale thing is a perennial fave. Reports of it being “over saturated” might be overblown.
So if you’re a writer of color with an Adult retelling of a fairytale or kids’ fable (including non-European stories) send it to me. #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-…
Cora Harrington @lingerie_addictLate night thoughts. Pride & Prejudice, but with the following cast:
- Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Jane Bennett
- Lupita Nyong’o as Eliza Bennett
- Tessa Thompson as Mary Bennett
- Yara Shahidi as Lydia Bennett pic.twitter.com/KJTclrr4Tf
YASSS GIVE ME THIS.
Also, #MSWL retelling with an all black/POC cast.
Thao Le @ThaoLe8I 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
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'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
