These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Sep 12

I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL

I am still, and always, looking for smart, fun YA. I like it all: Rom coms, friendship stories, siblings stories. Well written and smart, make me laugh and cry. #MSWL.

I'm 27 pages in, & let me tell you: I've only known @laurenspieller as a FANTASTIC agent. Now, I get to know her as a writer, & she's got me hook, line, & sinker. My new #MSWL: Query me the kind of YA novel that Lauren would write. Go buy #YourDestinationIsOnTheLeft & learn how.

#MSWL: I am still starving for contemporary YA...

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Jun 12

#MSWL: Adult Fiction: I would love to read a novel with twists on classic noirs that play with genre conventions. OR an edge of your seat psychological thriller. OR a thriller that is set in 1950s NYC.

A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."

Starting to teach my course on Indo- European Folktales next week at Pitt. Reminder: I 'd love retellings of all cultures' folktales. #MSWL

After seeing the preview at @RowHouseCinema, I now want a Graphic Novel like "The Girl Without Hands" movie. #MSWL youtu.be/ANbYvxpqx8A

For Middle Grade I would love a series like "Die Schule der magischen Tiere" for the US market. #MSWL @carlsen_verlag

Recently, I have become obsessed with graphic novels. I would love to receive queries for YA, and MG, graphic novels! #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 18 Jul 2017

Picture Books: I have been obsessed with Love Is by Diane Adams. I like to cry uncontrollably... Or laugh uncontrollably #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 18 Jul 2017

In nonfiction : Popular Science, as well as Pop Culture. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 18 Jul 2017

OK, here are some updates for my, #MSWL: Adult Psychological Suspense (think Patricia Highsmith)

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 11 Jun 2017

If anyone can pull off a GENIUS psychological thriller like this one, I will want to represent it. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 18 May 2017

I want my own Caraval-like fantasy. An enchanting world, shocking plot twists, and an engaging sibling relationship. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 14 Mar 2017

I could really use some great nonfiction. I don't care if it's for YA, MG, PB, or Adult. #MSWL
