Writers watching #MSWL: When in doubt, just query. That's you saying "hey, interested in my book?" No need to @ agents w/clarifying Qs.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

YA that is unapologetically commercial. Big hooks, fast plot, etc. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

MG Or YA-- survival stories. Lost at sea, snowed in, etc. Think real world, not apocalyptic. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

Would love a YA dealing with spiraling depression. Maybe a destructive relationship as a catalyst. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

For Contemporary Romance: both blue collar, rugged guys, and billionaire alpha heroes. Think high heat, not sweet. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

how about a YA that NAILS crushing on someone from afar who doesn't know you exist? That invisible, yearning thing of our teen years? #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

In MG, I enjoy tween girl stories-- fun and breezy with a great voice. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

Would also love a YA with a non-linear timeline. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

I would love a super intense LGBTQ romance for YA, as well. Not necessarily a coming out story, just an enjoyable love story! #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

I will also absolutely consider fresh paranormal YA. It's gotta be amazing, but I think the door is slowly opening, so BRING IT. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 10 Mar 2016

I'd love a YA beach read. Breezy, Fun, romantic. Something to make me smile and swoon. #MSWL

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 11 Feb 2016

#MSWL: YA where teens fake being adults, a la DON'T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 11 Feb 2016

#MSWL- YA with an absurdly ridiculous premise (like KILL THE BOY BAND, or the movie THE HANGOVER.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 11 Feb 2016

#MSWL: ROMANCE. Contemporary/Historical for adults, ANYTHING for YA where the romance drives the plot. Funny or dark.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 11 Feb 2016

#MSWL: MG that includes solving puzzles or clues, turns into grand adventure.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 11 Feb 2016

#MSWL: YA w/an anti-hero, a la BREAKING BAD.

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbard · 5 Jan 2016

#MSWL- dying for a dark/gritty/disturbing/SOMETHING YA. Give me a revolution or a tragedy or an addiction!
