One of my weird obsessions is Wicked Tuna, a show about tuna fishermen. I’d love a novel about a career that is essentially a whole community lifestyle. See, eg. farming, fishing, etc. #MSWL

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

was reminded last week of how much I adored THE WINTER PEOPLE so if you have ever used that as a comp #MSWL

#MSWL A YA featuring a teen entrepreneur who runs a business like this one-- a man who allows you to "rent" him to fill a role (IE, fake friend/dad/wedding date/etc).…

Dynasty, but YA #MSWL

YES, someone please send this to me. I'll take Dynasty, Dallas, any of those that focus on wealth, family, and drama, drama, drama. #MSWL

After devouring The Handmaid's Tale, I marathoned #AliasGrace on @netflix. Now kind of obsessed with the idea of finding historical suspense /fiction inspired by true crimes of a bygone era. #MSWL

If your work fits the above, just FYI I am open to queries! This and more of my #MSWL can be found at I’ll also be on HIGH alert at #DVpit for some new stuff. Hope all the #querytip #amquerying followers are listening! Thanks! <3

I would also like to see some heart-achey MG contemporary that doesn’t shy away from big issues. Socially and politically engaged, with humor and joy and hope but also courage and realness and empathy. #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

beth phelan @beth_phelan · Apr 16

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

beth phelan @beth_phelan · Apr 16

Also for YA contemporary realistic: high-concept, epic romances—especially anything with extras like compressed timelines and other ambitious narrative risks. Experiment, innovate! Been on my #MSWL forever. Inclusive and intersectional most of all.

beth phelan @beth_phelan · Apr 16

I love my YA contemporary list and still WANT MORE! Something a little offbeat, surreal, defffffinitely funny. Maybe surrounding a small thing/event that gets blown out of proportion/snowballs... Peculiar communities, histories... Maybe urban legends?? #MSWL
