Lisa Rodgers @_LisaRodgers#mswl I'd love to see a wildfire story. I'm equal opportunity on the setting -- campers/hikers? Surburanites? I want to see survival and moving on. Also, I'm from CA, so wildfires affecting urban settings is something I'm used to seeing (alas).
#mswl I'm still looking for my Donner Party retelling! I think would YA would be kick-ass, but adult Donner Party retellings are also 💯.
#MSWL for YA:
~ a FAUST retelling
~ a plot that brings to mind Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
~ Grumpy antiheroes who can't seem to be evil (despite how they try) / humor is a plus!

I love retelling (except for Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and King Arthur) so give me fresh new spins. Bonus points if they are not the same ones we always see. #MSWL (psst: you can also use them as a spring board like how ACOTAR was a Beauty and the Beast one)

Fantasy retelling of a biblical story - maybe Esther, Jonah, Hagar, or Hosea and his unfaithful wife. Set it somewhere new and magical. Add depth and imagination, but not heresy or gratuitous sex/violence. Lead reader through mud to beauty. #MSWL #Christian #YA #Fantasy
