#mswl: A funny, modern middle-grade voice that reminds me of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. If you're out there, email me! ebewley@sll.com.

Lastly, as a PB writer... PBs! I have a stupid sense of humor so anything funny like Elise Parsley or Jason Carter Eaton. One of my favorites is RL Stine’s LITTLE SHOP OF MONSTERS. #MSWL

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

Funny contemporary middle grade with a high concept twist #MSWL

#MSWL YR/MG/YA graphic novels! Great art is the priority: by great I mean clean, expressive, well--and cleverly!--laid-out. You can do a lot with a little, but if you do a lot, those details better suck my face into the page. That+adorable, funny, heartbreaking characters.

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

I typically go for pretty dark & gritty, but craving some good FUNNY & voice-driven rom com ala TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR in YA #mswl

For picture books: I want something funny, great to read out loud, and perhaps a bit surreal--like Dragons Love Tacos meets Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. #MSWL

MG that's funny, charming, and full of heart. Oh! And with just a touch of magic. #MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 12

Funny books, for readers of all ages. I’m not super into corny jokes/poop humor, but everything else? Bring it. #mswl

Superstitious Graham 👻 @staceyigraham · Sep 12

I'm always looking for clever/funny MG with a spooky twist and depth of character. Villians must be well developed (a true threat and not just a pest). #mswl

Margaret Bail @MKDB · Sep 12

Still looking for the next mystery I can't put down. Something with a smart, funny voice and hooky concept. #MSWL

Tahra Seplowin @calixofcoffee · Sep 10

Still a-waitin' for a funny, sweet, sexy, romantic, lighthearted, happy, gloriously emotional romance featuring a bisexual heroine. Agents, help a girl out! #mswl #enemiestoloversismyweakness #orbosssecretary #etcetcetcwantitall #beenaskingfortwoyearsnowhaaaalp

This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...

I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:

--high concept
--romantic
--funny
--diverse!
--contemporary
--family B plots
--HEA

Let's do this!

The last thing I should be doing on my day off, with a full query inbox, is tweet out my #MSWL, but it's August and rules don't apply 😂 #thread

I'm still seeking a book that brings me into another culture/country/world I'm unfamiliar with. NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA & CRAZY RICH ASIANS both come to mind #MSWL Could be serious, could be romantic, could be funny.

Would do backflips for a smart, funny, dark historical fiction centered on a 1950s or ‘60s beauty pageant #MSWL
