YA writers, I just want a contemporary that captures the mood, tone, and heart @HayleyKiyoko latest single #Curious.

MUST have a happy ending for the MC: romantically or not! 🌸 #mswl

#MSWL I love the Salem witch trials. I'd be interested in seeing other famous witch trials in history. #YA

Uh there is so much excellent YA Witch Lit coming soon that I can hardly CONTAIN MYSELF. Witches, get on this. And there is even more coming our way that just doesn't have a cover yet. I'm looking at you @christineexists & @IsaSterling #MSWL #witchlitforever #yesplease

a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook

I'm obsessed with #Chopped and #MasterChef. I love the teen/kid competitor episodes. A YA foodie novel would be a ton of fun. #MSWL

What happens to the kids AFTER they win Masterchef or Top Chef Junior and they go back to real life after being on tv for three months? Do they feel pressure to go to culinary school when they are 17 after spending months saying that's their dream at 11? #MSWL

Also putting it out there that I am DYING for a sexy YA ballet book from a boy dancer's POV. My working title: FOUETTES FOR DAYS. #mswl

It's been nearly four years and I'm still dreaming of this project. Someone please write me FOUETTES FOR DAYS. I'd love the teen male POV on ballet with some drama and romance. #MSWL

I love THE MAGICIANS. So I would totally be down to see a #YA magical college setting. #MSWL

I really love Lloyd Alexander. His work is simply beautiful on so many levels. If you can add a #Christian element in a #CSLewis-esque manner - obvious, but not overwhelming, and generally enjoyed regardless of the reader's faith - I would be over the moon. #MSWL #YA, #Fantasy

I'm on the hunt for some YA neo-Westerns. Comps to Die Hard, Fargo, Wind River, etc. #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

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jan 10

I'd like to see a novel that tackles the issue of #autism and police interaction, particularly for a POC on the spectrum, as discussed in this article by @hollyrpeete: huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-a… #autismmom #MSWL #YA #WF

Fantasy retelling of a biblical story - maybe Esther, Jonah, Hagar, or Hosea and his unfaithful wife. Set it somewhere new and magical. Add depth and imagination, but not heresy or gratuitous sex/violence. Lead reader through mud to beauty. #MSWL #Christian #YA #Fantasy
