Project Savior. I'm a huge fan of SEVENEVES by Neal Stephenson, & I'd love a powerful, weighty fantasy along the same lines. Part 1) Humanity in peril, danger, despair, rushed plans, underground cryo chambers Part 2) Waking up to & surviving a new reality millennium later #MSWL

#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.

#MSWL Far-future YA. Humanity's population is decimated. People separated by vast distances. They know of our glorious past & technological marvels, but can't replicate it. Then a beacon floods the sky in the distance, & 4 teens from different villages are sent to investigate...

#MSWL Utopian YA novel with a dark, dangerous undertone.

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL

I might die if someone sent me something as voicey as ODD THOMAS, with all of its other attributes as well. #MSWL

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

#MSWL Give me a MG novel where a group of middle school friends (guys and girls) get sucked into a #Fortnite game! And ... go!

#MSWL Romace please! Maybe akin to overboard but on the high seas and famous ports. Or maybe more serious. Open to a lot of interpretation! 👉Confessions of a superyacht stewardess @CNN cnn.it/2Pxz7CE👈

#MSWL Looking for a rom-com “Marriage Pact,” where one of the “signers” calls in the pact when both turn 30 without marriages of their own. The other’s not interested, and the hijinks ensue. I want to feel like Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan could play the leads in the movie version!

#MSWL I’d love a Romance featuring a female firefighter 👩‍🚒 AND I’d love a romance series featuring the young residents/new doctors and nurses of a hospital. Mix them up with each other, older doctors, nurses, police and first reponders. Give me settings: ER, surgery, etc.

I want a kitschy play on a future earth protected by Space Force. #mswl. I’m feeling it as a kind of Space Balls meets Star Wars but not as dumb as Idiocracy. Think clever. Wit. OR ... I could be ok with a serious plot too.

#MSWL I want an MS set a DEF CON—the huge hacker convention held in Las Vegas. Crazy stuff must go down. High-energy. Thriller-esque. Contemporary or near-future (give me crazy attire, cool world building), YA or Adult. Save the world. Solve a puzzle. But HIGH stakes!!!

Just went tubing with my family for an end-of-summer blowout in Alpine Helen & now I want a romance (with a series in mind) of adventure outfitters employees finding ♥️: raft, canoe, kayak, whitewater, fishing, horses. Set in tourist town. Montana, Maine? I don’t know! #MSWL
