I want a middle grade humor book. My favorite is THE MORTIFICATION OF FOVEA MUNSON. Give me something quirky and offbeat, but still kid friendly. #MSWL

I absolutely love quirky #MG. Really looking for a special project that addresses a serious issue but with incredible humor and heart. I love stories that make me smile through my tears! #MSWL

I'd also like #Contemporary #Christian/#Inspy #YA featuring homeschooled students in an honest, ultimately positive light. Showcase the weird and wonderful side of this diverse community with humor and love. #MSWL

Okay, folks! I’ve entered my Thirties and I am ready to acquire all of the books! Agents, if you’ve got any magical realism, dark humor, own voices, STEAM-based books, multicultural contemporary stories, or anything rooted in folklore, I’m your gal! #MSWL

My #mswl: humor, an element of the absurd, magic, space, robots, mystery. On the serious side: characters & stories that help children explore concepts too often discussed in whispers. Especially want stories w/ diverse characters, authors, & illustrators. bit.ly/2Co7G79

#MSWL I recently started the Dahlia Moss Mystery series, and I'd love to see something similar in my inbox in 2018. A geeky, humor filled mystery, which is FUN. Series potential is preferred. While I'm closed for queries, if you have something comparable please do send ASAP.

I’m eager to acquire humorous manuscripts that are tightly written with snappy dialogue. A lighthearted cozy mystery series featuring a bantering duo. Romantic comedy or sexy romps, whether contemporary or set in the Regency/Victorian periods or the future. #MSWL

A few things we'd love to see in contemporary romance:
a fun sense of humor;
Christmas, obviously;
summer weddings;
heroes who are genuinely good men;
series ideas about friends or siblings;
subplots about family members reconciling;
rescue dogs and/or cats.

#MSWL MG with female MC who goes to space camp and kicks all the boys butts because she wants to be an astronaut and her idol is Sally Ride. So she learns to read the stars, understand horoscopes, and uses it all to navigate friendships.

Replying to @YAFantasyFan

#MSWL A hilarious haunting! A ghost with a sense of humor, waking people up, making weird sculptures with random objects around the house, telling the living people that they should GET IT, etc. 😂 Make me die laughing.

Binged most of AMERICAN VANDAL last night. #whodrewthedicks
The blend of humor, character/world building, intrigue is on fire.
