All this chatter about a vampire (and werewolf) comeback. I have thoughts...

I like my supernatural, human-but-not characters. But I’d love some new takes—not the resurrecting of classics that worked the last time around. Let’s see new perspectives get a bite at that apple.

After a fantastic chat with @hroot, @tayhaggerty, and the Orbit editorial team this afternoon, I’ve realized that one of my evergreen #MSWL items is “sprawling, deeply messed up, magical families who both love and hate each other, and maybe change the world sometimes.”

Send me your YA or MG GNs that capture the immigrant family feel of Kim’s Convenience! #mswl

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

Has everyone seen the trailer for *Mary Poppins Returns*? If not, it's an absolute must: bit.ly/2D7ARjL. I'd absolutely love a #novel that captures something of the vibrant imagination, color, humor, and family life portrayed here! #MSWL

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

Is it still #MSWL day?

Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”

As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!

Just had a great brainstorming meeting with the gals so, to completely rip-off of @thejumbles: #MSWL stories about death & dying & grief, family, and hope à la THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"

Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · Sep 12

#MSWL A novel--for any age group--about the breaking point in a friendship or family relationship. Tell me about having the strength to end contact with someone who can't be helped/is actively toxic. Relatedly: a book about intentional familial estrangement and its effects.

Thrilled to see 2019 already trying to make witches happen. Multigenerational, feminist, family-heavy witch book for YA or MG? Do want! #mswl

And I'm always looking for stories with perennial themes (love, fears, family) that could pop on holiday promotion, like my darling Dad By My Side #MSWL

Quressa Grave Robber-Son (she/her/queen) @qnrisawesome · Sep 12

Stories about generational wealth in POC families. And stories about moving into a higher socioeconomic status than the rest of ones family. #MSWL
