Agent friends! The news out there is bleak and I’m looking for projects that will make me smile and give me all the feels. Send me all your most beautiful and optimistic YA! 👀#mswl

Little know fact about me: I bake! I’d love a project that has a baking element to it. #MSWL

Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but make it literary #MSWL

As someone who cries just about every day, and these days more than ever, #MSWL: the book on crying. Cultural history, scientific breakdown, sociological study, the works.

Okay, it’s officially fall and last week was a lot so:

Agents, send me your proposals, your novels, your stories of badass women yearning to breathe free. My body, brain, and inbox are ready. #MSWL #MondayMood

I *need* a YA adaptation of this (times a billion).

All the #mswl I throw out are specific purely because writers have told me they find them good inspiration. So please don't take these literally/down to the letter. Maybe your book has just an element, or is similarly twisty.

Super voicey, dramatic, fun, sexy (or not!) stories that feature a big, nosy, means-well-but-talks-candid Latinx family. If you grinned at that, you know just what kind of family I'm talking about. #mswl

Would love to see romances/WF books featuring protagonists who aren't in their 20s/early 30s. Fixing marriages/rekindling the spark, reunited after divorce, second (or third!) chance at love with someone else, etc. Doesn't have to be dark AT ALL. #mswl

Women making waves in a male-dominated industry. #mswl
