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

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

Literary or fairytale #retellings – but they have to really stand out and bring something new. Bonus for more under-the-radar or lesser-told tales or mashups. #MSWL

Would 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

Carina 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
