How many times have I watched this video?
So many times.
Can someone please write me a YA with this level of friendship and support between teammates?
Please?

15) Light Adult fantasy. Show that thinks don’t get less magical after childhood. Comps like Practical Magic, Garden Spells, and The Night Circus. #MSWL

14) Romcoms about athletes competing at the Olympic level. I want the next Cutting Edge! #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

12) I’m dying for a YA set during the 1920s. Something sharp like gin or bubbly like champagne. #MSWL

11) I’m still desperate for a good YA horror. Something dark and disturbing. More eerie than gory, and grounded in reality (no supernatural killers needed). #MSWL

10) I want more YA stories where the dynamic friend duo is front and center (and any romantic relationships take a backseat) #MSWL

9) I am forever and always a theater kid at heart. Backstage was my second home growing up. Bring me your stories about or inspired by the Arts! #MSWL

8) I still have my fingers crossed for a clever retelling, a genre-crossing tale with familiar faces, but not unnecessarily faithful to the source material. It should stand independent and quite unique. #MSWL

7) Send me the hungry ones, the MCs who want something so badly, it rattles their bones. Who encourage their ambition. (YA) #MSWL

6) Send me your jagged girls, the ones who broke and put themselves back together. The ones who don’t hide what they are (YA). #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

5) Send me your quiet, lyrical magic. Your tales of discovery and wonder. Give me a MG bedtime story that paints my dreams. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

4) I love Harriett The Spy, Artemis Fowl, and Encyclopedia Brown. I always want more clever, observant kids. (Working moral compass not required) #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

3) Send me your intelligent absurdists, your Monty Pythons and Terry Pratchetts for MG. Make my brain giggle. Fart jokes need not apply. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

2) I have two different laughs: the snort and the guffaw. The snort is easy. I want an MG that makes me guffaw. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

1) I always want to see more writers with #ownvoices stories, across all genres and ages. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

Surprise! I am now reopen to queries! #MSWL thread forthcoming for what I’d love to see in my inbox.
