Chandra Rooney @sakuralovestea@leonicka I'm so hopeful that your inbox gets flooded with sweet, witchy cottagecore romance and then I get to read them all when they get published.
But also hear me out: “sweet witchy cottagecore” retelling of Hansel & Gretel about found family and who society casts off. #mswl
I LOVE retellings of stories but not so keen on a classic or fairy tale or Shakespeare or Bible story or whatever being retold in a contemporary setting. I know that's a thing. It's just not MY thing. #MSWL
🤩 This week, #MeetAPL starts with the newest addition to the APL team, @foldandgathers!
Selena is the star behind the scenes at @pandelectures. For her #MSWL, she is looking for dark, strange retellings that break genres. 👀 Selena will be open to queries in May!
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeCan I get a sapphic YA rom that is essentially an ANNE OF GREEN GABLES retelling but with Anne and Diana admitting they’re totally gone for each other please and thank you. 👩🏼🦰👩🏻🌈💜 #MSWL
for REAL #mswl
Mainlined all of Lupin last night & this afternoon, and it is SO EXTREMELY MY SHIT! A kind-of retelling where the source material exists in-universe and the characters are consciously riffing on it? Meta af, sign me up. Also an eternal #mswl
Big Edition @BigEditionWould you recognize Julius Caesar or Cleopatra in modern clothes?
I'm mesmerized by this. And it feels like there is a good book concept/retelling hidden in one of these renderings. Authors, go! #MSWL
Deborah Nemeth @DebNemethCarina Press is holding a pitch event on Nov. 30 for our Adores line of LGBTQ+ contemporaries. For this line, we don't require the full manuscript to submit, nor do we require you to have an agent. And we're providing feedback on requested submissions! twitter.com/Write4Harlequi…
For Carina Adores, some of the tropes that will grab my eye include attraction of opposites, cross class, fake relationship, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers, secret agenda, second chance, road trip, forced proximity, fairy tale retelling. Low angst stories only. #MSWL
Lauren Knowles @knowles_editor😭😭 I love this. My Christmas and birthday wish is to receive an f/f Labyrinth retelling. Thank you. #MSWL twitter.com/tashadrinkstea…
I would LOVE this, too! #mswl
Tasha Suri @tashadrinksteaI.... uh, omg. You've all seen this sapphic Labyrinth themed wedding shoot, right? I'm just extremely late to the party?
😭😭 I love this. My Christmas and birthday wish is to receive an f/f Labyrinth retelling. Thank you. #MSWL
