Sangu Mandanna @SanguMandanna@DelilahSDawson I’d love to see more brown people! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a South Asian person on screen or page in Star Wars, other than Riz Ahmed! So a brown girl would be so cool! More mental illness rep would be great too.
This is also eternally on my #MSWL for YA and adult sci-fi and fantasy, please. Brown kids in space.
Amanda Sinatra @Amanda_Sinatra@Lynnette_Novak @JulieShattuck Are you looking for specific genre to read?
Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mysteries, historical, & contemporary. MG: Sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, horror, & humor. #diversity #MSWL
Moving on to adult, I also rep adult SFF -- and I'm looking for the same things there that I am in YA. The only difference, I'd love an adult space opera. I've been looking for one for ages and I haven't found it yet! #MSWL
"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Samantha Wekstein @SWeksteinI'm so excited!!!! I want a book that makes me feel like this trailer does #MSWL twitter.com/Stranger_Thing…
I want to be more specific about this #MSWL. I want something that gives me the nostalgia and friendship of The Sandlot (like this does) while also bringing in the awesome sci-fi adventure we see in Stranger Things. Don't comp if it's just sci-fi without the other elements.
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinHere's the deal: I'll be open to queries from April 1st - June 30th. If I've specifically told you to send me something sooner, then send it sooner (for example the #highlightsjewishkidlit peeps). I'll do a #mswl thread within the next few days. Please RT & let your friends know!
When I open in April, I am looking for MG & YA stories featuring Jewish main characters, by Jewish authors, including realistic contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, LGBTQ+, romcoms, secular stories, spiritual stories, & especially stories from Jewish people of color. #MSWL
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinTwo things I decided/learned from listening at the #highlightsjewishkidlit weekend: writers don’t need to define if it’s “a Jewish book,” just write what’s there. And we’re all Jewish enough (or not too Jewish) exactly however we are. Also, YES please to Jewish fantasy & sci-fi!
Jewish fantasy or sci-fi!! #mswl
As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl
bao ngo @srirachadrinkerlol i lose my shit every time i remember that k-pop was created by the south korean government in the late 90s as an export in order to pay back a $57 billion IMF loan
Someone write me the science fiction or fantasy take on this. #mswl
Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL
Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.
It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.
