4. Speculative fiction: like our world, but one or two big differences. This is less of a pull for me, but if you’ve got something unputdownable with a massive hook, send it my way!

A sneak peek at my eventual #MSWL —I’d swoon over a Gilmore Girls inspo with a paranormal or speculative element, anything that could comp my favorite song of all time, “Never Surrender” by Cory Hart or a story set in a coastal boating town. #amquerying #WritingCommunity

Hello, a quick #thread blast on about my current #mswl ,

I'm looking out for some commercial genre-bending speculative fic, aka crime, romance, or thriller with a unique uncanny edge.

my #MSWL : stories by queer and trans writers, esp. ones that resist & subvert tropes of trauma, coming out, & transition; novels that make me laugh with their cleverness, wit, & peculiar specificity; grounded speculative fiction with a literary sensibility... (2/7)

As a small sampling of things I love and am on the lookout for:

Genre-benders (think Romantasy, thrillers with a dash of romance, etc)
Speculative with heart (AS King, Adam Silvera, Kacen Callendar)
Thrillers (Isolated settings and beyond)
Sci-Fi (grounded and/or sweeping)

I closed to queries for a while, but I'm baaaack! A quick #MSWL note to celebrate While kidlit will always have my heart, I'm actively trying to build up the adult side of my list—so if you've got thrillers, romcoms, horror, spec and contemp fiction, I wanna see!

5. Speculative/Fantasy/Sci-Fi: I don't really have specifics here, but I'd love anything that completely transports me to a new world and makes me crave the setting/characters once I finish. Books like Matched, Fourth Wing, Babel, Artemis. Bring on the book hangover. (6/8)

My bookshelf is 50% character-driven sff/speculative/spooky, 50% realistic contemporary/historical (coming-of-age romance, mystery/thriller, action-adventure, and verse novels), mostly by BIPOC, queer, or traditionally underrepresented folks, & my taste very much reflects that.

“Seeking upmarket speculative fiction—grounded fantasy, magical realism, and horror—comparable to stories by Angela Carter, Gregory Maguire, Naomi Novik, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, and Helen Oyeyemi."

MG: character-driven fantasy/speculative/spooky; gorgeous verse novels; beautifully written coming-of-gender/gay stories w/ young people just beginning to come into their identity or discovering first love and crushes. Think Chiron in Moonlight when he's still a kid/preteen. 3/6

Something dark. Something speculative. Something testing and scary and creepy and thoughtful and bloody and romantic and ambitious and terrifying and mesmerizing.
