I have a soft spot for witches - gothic or cosy, historical or contemporary, I don’t mind. Bonus points for fresh interpretations and anything outside Western tradition #MSWL

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I wanna, I wanna steaming hot, can't put down PNR/UF with witches that's no longer than 75,000 words. Come on, people, rescue me from queriers who send me what I clearly state I DON'T take. #MSWL

From the coalface of publishing: all editors are saying no more witches please or retellings of myths.

I'll always want witches & myth retellings! Just give me a strong voice, layered characterization, & beautiful textured writing with them. Would especially love to see witches from underrepresented backgrounds - like, can I get a witch living in a hanok in the woods? #mswl twitter.com/KarolinaSutton…

Ok, let’s talk #fantasy. I’m a fan of #romantasy, and am a sucker for a good love-triangle. I tend to be more urban fantasy rather than high-fantasy. Give me faeries, witches, and vampires any day of the week and I will be happy!

More #MSWL: Historical fiction centered on witches (and/or including magical elements), featuring well-researched, authentic period detail. I'd love a story in this space that borrows from actual events and re-imagines them in an original way

#MSWL Witch bottles! The video on opening the bottle was a lot of fun to watch plus great inspiration for characters from the "cunning folk" who would use these as treatments. bornfreepress.substack.com/p/issue-19-wit…

So shoutout to @mishma on this: give me fake dating fun but like in magical bookshop; or best friend's road trip before witch college starts.

Why does fantasy always have to be so end of the world serious? Give Ted Lasso/What We Do in the Shadows vibes #MSWL
