Is there a way to do an updated EMPIRE RECORDS style YA? Teenage co-worker drama? #MSWL

I'm feeling really into MG/ YA with specific settings these days. Transport me! #MSWL

Honestly, I want all the queries. If you've got a commercial book living inside your fingertips, send it my way. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · May 24

Oh and some edge of your seat, heart attack causing thrillers? OK thx bye. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · May 24

This is not to say I'm not also into YA. Send me some romantic, swoon-worthy, crackling, cackle-inducing YA, please! #MSWL

Was just thinking about Now and Then, which has stuck w/ me for over 20 years (gasp). Something that sticks to kids in the same way. #MSWL

I'd love to see fiction set in the communities highlighted in HILLBILLY ELEGY. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Mar 15

I'd love to see some more socioeconomic diversity in MG + YA, especially from the lens of healthcare. #MSWL

#MSWL Fixer Upper for kids? (feel free to mock me.)

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Mar 8

What about YA or adult commercial fiction involving some sort of treasure map? and clues? National Treasure but less Nic Cage? #MSWL

More retellings from the perspective of the damsel, k? #MSWL

Today I started #Riverdale and it's like Dawson's Creek, PLL, and Vampire Diaries had a massive comic-based love child.

Oh also, #mswl for sexy teenage mystery where everyone is a suspect!
