I have been flying (pun intended🚀) through episodes of For All Mankind and would love to see a book in a similar vein - speculative/alternate history about the widespread societal ramifications of one small change to the timeline #mswl

Reminder that I'm always on the lookout for dark academia books in YA & Adult especially by BIPOC authors!

Anything including a speculative element, solving a mystery, challenging the elitism of higher education, and a close knit group of friends are 👌

In YA, i still love most genres and everything from light to dark. I love hope and depth and humor and stories that can change lives, whether from joy or empathy and validation. More specifically:

1. Super high concept contemporary and speculative contemporary

Horror / Speculative:
Grounded horror or speculative fiction that is creepy and unsettling, but rooted in the real world.

Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:

My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.

I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.

1: High-concept contemporary is what’s making my heart sing right now. I recently read SHINE by Jessica Jung and devoured it. That said, hints at the speculative are always special for me. (Focus on hints.)

I finished line editing a client’s gorgeous MS that’s a family saga with a speculative twist, & I feel like I know generations of a whole town’s worth of people so intimately. Please send me more family sagas with speculative twists. I would so love more books like this. #MSWL
