I always on the lookout for YA fantasy with dark and complicated family relationships/friendships inspired by non-European cultures! #MSWL

In adult, I'm mainly looking for SFF & historical, especially the kind that's both gripping & intimate. I want a really deep dive into a character's (or community's) emotional journey. #mswl

I know I definitely don't have enough Historical and Historical Fantasy in my box! #MSWL Please and thank you! =) I can't wait to read them!

I’m really looking to beef up the MG part of my list. Please send your heart wrenching contemporary or fun fantasy adventures my way! #mswl

I want urban fantasy in MG too please! Series potential and big friend groups, family-focused, heartfelt—would love to fight some surprise tears reading a fun, sweeping adventure. #MSWL

For my MG, right now I really want magical adventure! Send me something fantastical and fun, with a great hook, and friendships that shine. Especially if there are any non-human magical characters incorporated in a fresh way. #MSWL

I’m still looking for my fresh take on vampires in YA, whether grounded in this world or else reimagined and renamed in a fantasy one. I’d love to see more unexpected urban fantasy in general too, with characters I’d follow anywhere. #MSWL

Gonna drop a few #MSWL tweets as I’ve been going through my queries this weekend (sorry if you’re still waiting on a response—I’m getting there!) and trying to listen to what my gut is craving. I’m focusing on MG and YA, so let’s get started:

I would really love some character-driven YA fantasy that is both dark AND funny. Especially if there is a big eclectic cast and truly unique magic. Voicey characters but still high stakes and a world with details that awe, from city life to wildlife. #MSWL

On my fantasy/scifi #MSWL I often say I like stories to play with time. This doesn't necessarily mean time travel. My FAVORITE movie/short story is Arrival/Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang. The way time is used in that RUINED ME in the best way. Play with big concepts like time.

Breakfast Club, but they are at wizard school.

Bring It On, but they are at wizard school.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but he’s at wizard school.

It’s just that easy to make a new genre of film, fellas.

YES—give me “Bring It On” at wizard (or space) school! #mswl

I want #SFF stories about socioeconomic disparities at academic institutions.

Public school zoning on Mars? Affirmative action at fantasy college? Exploitation of student athletes at interstellar universities? PLEASE.

I am craving a gorgeous revenge fantasy in YA or Adult. #MSWL

#MSWL An epic fantasy that draws on a lesser-known body of historical resarch.

#MSWL I am not the right agent for vampire, werewolf, or fae stories. I am always looking for unique fantasy that brings in new, exciting elements less-commonly-seen, as well as stories that incorporate less-commonly-seen cultures into the worldbuilding!

Ronan Sadler @ronanedits · Apr 12

So thrilled to be faving for @CarinaPress during #DvPit. I'm looking for character-driven romance of any tone/genre, but especially tropey romcoms and gritty, atmospheric PNR/Fantasy #mswl

I don't have very many #adult #fantasy stories in my box at the moment. Want to change that? Send query and 1st 5 pages pasted in the body of the email to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL
