#mswl 2019: I'm often looking for the thing I didn't realize I wanted, so please, if you have a new MG or YA you're querying, try me! I'd love the opportunity to consider your work. I aim to reply to all queries within 10 weeks of receiving them. (12/13)

#mswl 2019: anything with a "cool" factor. I love big, cinematic stories or stories that have huge emotional range: books with high emotional intensity and those sentences that slam into the reader and take their breath away. (11/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: Smart middle grade mysteries like THE LONDON EYE MYSTERY or WHEN YOU REACH ME, or with a ghostly bent like Karen Strong's upcoming JUST SOUTH OF HOME. (9/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: literary standalone stories, such as THE THING ABOUT LUCK or COUNTING BY SEVENS, or THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH (8/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: A middle grade contemporary series as smart and pitch perfect as Jason Reynold’s Track Team series (6/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: YA Paranormal: I want a big vampire or werewolf book or paranormal series that feels new and different and unlike what we've seen before. And YA SFF unlike anything we've seen before. (5/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: YA thrillers and twisty tales: think ALLEGEDLY, ONE OF US IS LYING, THE DARKEST CORNERS, ALL OF THIS IS TRUE, WE WERE LIARS, etc. (4/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: Sweet, smart YA contemporary love stories: think TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE, WHAT IF IT’S US, SIMON VS., EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU, etc. (3/13)

Here are just SOME of the things on my #mswl in 2019 (but I of course often fall in love with the thing I didn't know I was looking for)... (1/13)

#mswl 2019: Smart, hold-no-punches YA contemporary. One of my favorite titles of 2018 was SADIE by Courtney Summers so if you’ve written something like that, yes please! Other favorite recent contemporary YA: Nina LaCour’s WE ARE OKAY, Angie Thomas’s THE HATE U GIVE. (2/13)
