#MSWL. The post that was retweeted is outdated. I am looking for rom coms, historical romance, romantic suspense; women’s fiction, especially stories related to relationships; thrillers; Southern Gothics; Middle Grade and narrative nonfiction.
S Mitchell-Stokes @TCWriterSMS@RosalieCJonker Rosie, what are you looking for, currently?
A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.
Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.
Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl
All ages: Female friendship, gender subversion, Southern Gothics, wordplay and puns, under-explored chapters in history, Jewish characters beyond WWII/shtetl, economic #diversity, genre blends, stories set in the deep South, rural America, and the Southwest. That's my #MSWL.
Send me your great Southern voice in MG and YA! Specificity of setting with clear stakes and hook, please. I loved WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, great Southern voice and a murder mystery/courtroom drama to boot! How to do this younger? #MSWL
Happy #MSWL Day! I am ABOUT to close to queries but in #YA I’d love to see fun historical (think A Gentleman’s Guide), or historical with dashes of magic, contemporary fantasy, southern gothic, projects featuring WITCHES, rom-coms w/ strong hooks (1/)
I'm breaking my Twitter hiatus for #MSWL Southern Gothic, Romance that goes beyond the I Do, Complicated Friendships with a Judy Blume feel, UF that isn't following a formula, and Military Scifi/Dystopian @VictressLit
Oh, and I have a soft spot for Southern Gothic. Especially from/about POC. And I don’t mean just tossing a side character who practices hoodoo/voodoo into a mostly white story. *side eyes Hollywood* #MSWL YA/MG
#MSWL. Looking for romantic comedies and women's fiction that is Up Lit and deals with female relationships and family secrets. I also enjoy historical fiction. Would also love to find some Middle Grade. And I love stories set in the South and Southern Gothics.
