Right now is the perfect time of year to send me your YA or MG Horror manuscript… #MSWL

MARIA @msmariavicente · Sep 12

YA romantic comedies featuring LGBTQ+ characters. #MSWL

I’m still looking for a YA macabre fairy tale retelling. A story that combines luxurious fantasy and horror. #MSWL

Super fun Contemporary YA. You know all your favourite swoon-worthy fanfic stories? I want YA fiction that reads like that. #MSWL

I made the mistake of starting The Vampire Diaries on Netflix (it's my first time watching the series) and now all I can think about is vampire lore. I am ready for a vampire resurgence.

To be more specific when it comes to books, my Young Adult vampire-themed #MSWL would look something like this: new twists on classic tropes; more interested in a badass character than "vamp with a soul"; the Pink Ladies or T-Birds... but vampires!

Reminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.

I so badly want these “fluffy” YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities). #MSWL

Still looking for a bunch of YA things: a story about female best friends; a macabre fairy tale retelling; a great mystery; a cute gay or lesbian love story. #MSWL

@msmariavicente Thanks for hosting this! Top of your wish list for YA? Any special genres? #askagent

Replying to @ktstanley2500

I'd really love some genre fiction in YA. SFF or horror with an unusual premise and diverse characters. Also, LGBTQ+ Contemporary. #MSWL

I’m also looking for nonfiction for kids! Both YA and MG. Any topic goes—surprise me! #MSWL
