sibiz.eu/en/2015/07/16/… I’m a first generation Slovenian. My father emigrated when he was a child. Would love to see some YA stories around Slovenian myths and legends. #mswl #amquerying

#MSWL a bunch of teens who discover they have super powers but just use them to do normal every day stuff. Controlling the weather for optimum spring break rays. Flying to school to save on gas.

#MSWL. In all areas, I am always drawn to strong voices and distinct settings functioning like an additional character, and unique plotting and twists.

#MSWL. Just finished MAID and would love to find some narrative nonfiction that celebrates underrepresented voices, especially women, triumphing over tremendous odds be they physical, financial and/or mental.

#MSWL. Always looking for great adult fiction, e.g. Southern Gothic, medical romance, romantic comedies, Up Lit, domestic thrillers, historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries and cozy mysteries. You can email me at atuttle@dystel.com.

#MSWL. Also love Middle Grade stories addressing need for kindness, showing characters overcoming physical and mental obstacles and showing inclusion. Love messages against bullying, being courageous and taking risks.
Welcome stories set in school, magic worlds and at home.

#MSWL. Just finished Louisiana’s Way Home, and it typifies some of what I’m seeking in Middle Grade. I love the voice, Southern setting, eccentric characters, secrets & a fearless girl finding her way.

Authors! I LOVE music in MSs, I do, but if you’re sending me your music based MS, think more loud/booming/rock/guitar/drums/concerts/upbeat and less classical/violin/orchestra/opera/quiet/instrumental. I’m not AGAINST the latter, I’m just not a great fit for it. #MSWL

Starting 2019 with this #MSWL: I will drop everything to read a fresh, inclusive Urban Fantasy! Give me a city with magic woven into each building and street!

If you are a writer who ever worked on the Ellen DeGeneres show and would like to write a DEVIL WEARS PRADA-style roman à clef about a wideawake nightmare, please email me. #MSWL

Replying to @bookendslit

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl

12/ #MSWL: Agents, authors, librarians, teachers, and booksellers: I look forward to meeting more of you in 2019! Here’s to making more book magic this year.

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

11/ #MSWL: Finally, I promise I’m not ALL about darker books, as much as I love them. Send me some books with humor too! I’m looking for sarcastic and witty rather than goofy and silly. I promise I’m not uptight, but potty humor just isn’t my thing!

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

10/ #MSWL: No matter the genre, morally-complex characters and antiheroines/antiheroes always intrigue me!

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

9/ #MSWL: Middle-grade and YA graphic novels about identity, particularly coming-of-age stories that explore relationships and friendships with emotional depth. Books like This One Summer, Real Friends, and American Born Chinese.

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

8/ #MSWL: High-stakes MG and YA contemp that feature breakers of tradition and characters who forge their own paths, as well as novels about identity and overcoming adversity. Wonderful books like I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, Dear Martin, and The Stars Beneath Our Feet

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

7/ #MSWL: Deep contemporary YA! The gritty and dark variety as well as quirky and poignant novels. Books that deal with challenging subjects, mental health, and other important questions and ideas that affect teens, but ultimately offer hope. I.e. Jandy Nelson & Nina Lacour.
