As I said, open to all genres, but some I particularly love are fantasy and mystery. Humor is frequently a key element of the books I fall in love with. #MSWL

I love YA fantasy, and want to see worlds and characters that are fresh. #MSWL

Last week I tweeted a couple things I'm looking for. A refresher: a dark, creepy Fantasy for older MG readers – I love Joan Aiken, Franny Billingsley, Holly Black, Francis Hardinge, Laini Taylor. If you’re writing like this, I want to read! #MSWL

YA, MG and PB projects that are feminist in nature. #MSWL

Fantasy that uses American folklore – Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan etc – as part of its DNA. #MSWL

In terms of genre, my favorites (in no particular order) are: mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, hist-fic. I love a genre mash-up. #MSWL

I LOVE historical fantasy. Am most interested in non-Western settings, but open to all. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 30 Jun 2016

I'd love a fantasy that's based on American tall tales and folklore. YA or MG. #MSWL

I'm always looking for YA or MG fantasy. Want it to feel NEW, and to really sweep me away. #MSWL

I'm particularly interested in YA that's about the nature of female friendships. Contemporary, but other genres too - fantasy esp. #MSWL
