Contemporary WITCHES and covens. #YA and #MG, but keep it grounded in this worldโ€”think: The Craft or Practical Magic. I'm also on board with other #magicalrealism in styles of Laura Ruby, Anna-Marie McLemore, Emily X.R. Pan, Katrina Leno, Ibi Zoboi's American Street #MSWL

New add to my #MSWL. I'm looking for rom-coms with magical elements or paranormal: witches or nerdy werewolves/shifters come to mind... IOW, something different from what we've seen in paranormal romance in the past + funny & lighthearted. #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amwriting

For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL

Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL

I don't know whether it's the season, or just 2020 in general, but I am craving a warm and wise and magical witchy story right now, brimming with sisterhood and secrets (historical or contemporary). Bonus points if it has a compelling romance! #MSWL

Until I find them, I desperately want BIPOC witches and/or psychics!! Each culture has its own mythology that deserves to be showcased. Letโ€™s dive deep!

Since I'm opening back up for queries tomorrow, I thought I'd share some--not all--of my #MSWL must-haves.

1st up, I want a pair of witchy sisters or witchy friends with ancestral magic wrestling angry restless spirits in a dark setting, like a swampy, marshy woodland.

Still here for witches. Please & thanks.

Especially modern witches. Crystals. Herbs hanging from kitchen ceiling and running a clinic in town with remedies that don't poison you with chemicals.
Maybe solving a murder or two along the way ๐Ÿ˜‰
