See previous tweet for #MSWL re: southern fiction. Also eager for commercial-lit fiction. Upmarket, high concept with elegant voice.

High-concept YA of any genre, though there's a special place in my heart for contemporary #MSWL

#MSWL I need high concept submissions for our Teen/Crush/Crave lines. The premise itself needs to stand out. Strong romantic conflict.

#MSWL fantasy YA with an epic romance and a very high-concept. Preferably slow burn. Nothing set contemporary.
#MSWL LGBTQA always welcome. I’d love some YA f/f retellings or a great, high concept contemporary YA.

For YA, I'm really into sci-fi and survival thrillers right now. High concept with appealing, unique hooks #MSWL

Tip: I have more room on my list for MG than YA right now. Diverse, plot-driven, imaginative, high-concept, heartfelt. Hit me. #MSWL
Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8
#MSWL MG/YA fiction high-conceptl but w/fully-dimensional characters, ie intersection of literary/commercial. Twisty plots no horror or SF
For MG/YA, I’m looking for high-concept or commercial-leaning fiction. Good plots and good twists. Not picky on genre (but NO horror). #MSWL
