#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 some SCARY #MG in my inbox.

#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

#MSWL Thinking about the dichotomy of things & I want a near-future DYSTOPIAN where nothing is cleaned up & pretty. Want the horror (w/out major gore) of floods, earthquakes, death etc w/the thread of hope. Both pain & beauty. Give it to me...would love this with a literary feel.

Hey did I mention I am looking for inspirational and mainstream category romance? Would love to see things that fit Love Inspired, Hallmark, Harlequin Heartwarming, etc. More sweet than salty. #MSWL Query me: querymanager.com/query/1032

If you want to know something about me, it’s that I love baseball. I’m a “travel” baseball mom. Little league. Big League. Braves. Give me a baseball book. MG, YA, Romance, who knows... but baseball. #MSWL

#MSWL This is highly fascinating and I’d love a novel that takes this premise and runs with it. #future #speculativeworld #SFF technologyreview.com/s/610456/a-sta…

You guys—my nine-year-old totally wants a book where Cinderella’s Fairy godmother turns her into Big Foot but she still tries to dance with the prince anyway... #MSWL PLEASE. #kidlit

#MSWL (children's ch books ages 7-9 cont...) Maybe the boy doesn't shrink, the bugs get bigger? Also, MYTHICAL MONSTER series: boys adventuring w/creatures like big foot, Lochness, Yeti, Whatever the angle, commercial concept: stories w/animals, underwater adv, princesses, etc.

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Mar 1

#MSWL children's chapter books ages 7-9 (with a series in mind), very boy- or girl-centric. For Boys: Maybe something about a boy who considers himself a "Bugologist" & shrinks down to bug size to go on adventures. For girls: A story about a magical doll house that comes to life?

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL
