I am just now finding out about the bug heist and I am equally horrified and fascinated. And I kinda want to put this on my #mswl

Remember @beatonna's Hark, A Vagrant! strips about crime solving teens? That's perpetually #mswl for me.

I'm still closed to queries, but just so you know for when I open back up, I'm on a serious conartist kick. Give me your liars, your card sharks, your stolen identities, your heists, your thieves, your most persuasive criminals. YA and maybe MG. #mswl

Still look for a great upper MG page-turning adventure that makes me laugh #mswl

Replying to @bookishchick

I still really really want a YA Orphan Black. Sci-if in a near future, complicated girls and women, great character arcs, found family #mswl

My whole #mswl is now just the video for Dua Lipa's New Rules.

Lately I've got a thing for antagonistic girls in fiction.

This whole thread is now urgent #mswl. Send me all your brilliant, confident, manipulative, scheming, ruthless, vulnerable, bad ass girls.

I am still on the hunt for my ideal YA contemporary. Something with humor and heart, a great voice, and deeply personal stakes. #mswl

Kelly Van Sant @bookishchick · 13 Apr 2017

Also, YA Orphan Black is still very much on my #mswl so if you've got girls + science + suspense + queer romance + found family: gimme

Kelly Van Sant @bookishchick · 8 Feb 2017

I really love heist stories. I want YA w/ an all-girl team. Ocean's 11, Bringing Down the House, Six of Crows w/ diverse girls #MSWL

Kelly Van Sant @bookishchick · 8 Feb 2017

Upper MG with a whimsical, high-concept premise, lots of adventure and action, and smart, capable, diverse characters. #MSWL
