We're always looking for MG/YA in which the protagonist regularly uses pain medication to deal with chronic pain & meds aren't demonized.

Oh, and really good mysteries. Fun capers, or darker, both okay. Full of twists and good characters, stakes, and red herrings! #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

And send me funny! I want to fall off the couch laughing. Send me the next Georgia Nichols, Ilana/Abbi, Knope, any age or genre I rep #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

Send me all the books about food, geek culture, intersectional feminism, and girls kicking butt (both literal and metaphorical) #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

And still looking for the #ownvoices ace/aro deep dive into why our culture is obsessed with sex, love, romance, etc. MG, YA, other #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

I would love to see more queer MG and YA books. Maybe a masc/masc lesbian relationship? Breaking the masc/femme dynamic in queerness #MSWL

Please no rhyming or overly sentimental picture books. Can't wait to see your #PB projects! #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Feb 8

--your hilarious and rollicking, even on the 50th and 500th read. Also NF picture books, esp STEM, arts, bio, and science #MSWL #PB

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Feb 8

For #MSWL day, I'm announcing that I am now open to picture books! Send me diverse voices, cranky mischiefs, cantankerous grouches--

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Dec 21

I want a Game of Thrones-esque book set in a world inspired by 1930s Asia and gang families and magic.

#MSWL for sure, esp #ownvoices

How about a story where the character is obviously gay but no one talks about it. What about the glass closet. That too is a kind of trauma.

I'd love to see this. #MSWL Thank you, @brandonrambles

"[I want] African American characters, who are unapologetically queer & black & are the center of attention."

Yes please! #MSWL

Hey, #PitchWars ! Not sure if you've written magical realism or fantasy? @RivetingRosie has an excellent breakdown:

Yes, and I'm actively looking for magical realism! #MSWL #lemoncake

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL And books set outside of America, with American or not MC. Read @TraceyBaptiste 's THE JUMBIES--fantastic!

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL But diversity not treated as a trend or the sole part of their identity. Intersectionality! Blerds! Girls who fix cars and bake cakes!

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL Diversity of all kinds (race, gender, sexuality, ability, etc) and esp #ownvoices #weneeddiversebooks #WENEEDDIVERSEBOOKS (1/2)

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL Still eager to see unusual narrative structures, and unreliable narrators who think they are reliable
