#MSWL weird, maybe magical / speculative but also maybe not amazing YA a la BONE GAP or THE WALLS AROUND US or MORE HAPPY THAN NOT

Since Victoria is ripping off my best #MSWL tweets, I figure hers are fair game. Send these projects to me, not he… https://t.co/8kJC5B05ra

@byobrooks Question for you! The website says you are closed to unsolicited queries, just checking to see if MSWL is the exception?

I am still closed to submissions (although not for much longer). But #MSWL is an exception to this rule! https://t.co/BYNQMHXB6h

Lastly, I'm still very much looking for a damn good speculative thriller: Think THE ROOK, NIGHT FILM, and THE FIREMAN. #mswl

Brooks Sherman 🇺🇸 @byobrooks · 2w

I'd also love more YA & adult fantasy w/ intricate world-building: Think SIX OF CROWS, A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING, or THE MAGICIANS! #mswl

My fave recent middle-grade read was @AdamGidwitz 's THE INQUISITOR'S TALE: fascinating historical setting, innovative narrative voice! #mswl

#MSWL For MG, I'm a sucker for fantasy and fantasy adventure: HOOK'S REVENGE, LOCKWOOD & CO., and anything reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones!

Still very much at the top of my #mswl , guys! I love middle-grade fantasy, and I'm dying for some more on my list! https://t.co/pNzr3m1Rkz

My 1st #mswl tweet of the day. Book that fits this description: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, #ShePersisted .”

Absolutely on my #mswl as well! https://t.co/V1NZh8jsDP

This fascinating article on Regency London has me excited about the show Taboo, but also for my #MSWL . (Hint, hint) https://t.co/ONrnzWSkxX

@byobrooks Heard you rep adults now, too. Are you still taking MG novels?

@badwolfgirl2768 For #MSWL ? Yep!

@byobrooks Your website indicates you are closed to unsolicited queries. Some agents consider a response to an #MSWL as solicited. Do you?

I do! I welcome #MSWL queries. (But please indicate which #MSWL tweet you are responding to.) https://t.co/NJHOyVt7eT

#MSWL On the realistic end of MG, stories with heart and humor, à la OKAY FOR NOW by Gary D. Schmidt and (of course) ORIGAMI YODA.

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jun 30

#MSWL Speculative/fantasy/horror thrillers along the lines of THE ROOK by Daniel O'Malley or NOS4A2 by @joe_hill .

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jun 30

Still totally up for a YA version of GAME OF THRONES -- epic world building and political/cultural shadow-boxing. #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jun 30

Finally watched the film DOPE last night and yo, easy favorite. (And the soundtrack was A+) I want a book that reads like that movie.

Ahem. At the top of my #MSWL ... https://t.co/kTgwCPljjv

@byobrooks I thought, according to your blog, you were closed for queries?

@n_howl I am, but (according to my blog) I’ll make exceptions for "conferences, #MSWL tweets, or pitch contests in which I’m participating."

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 17 2016

@byobrooks Open only for cupid's work on #PitMatch , or you also up for anyone fitting your recent #MSWL ?

@HeidiKneale Send me a query with #MSWL in the subject line, specifically refer to *which* thing I was looking for, and I’ll consider it! :)

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 11 2016

Seeking #fantasy in ALL age categories w/ vivid world-building. Think Chronicles of Prydain, Lockwood & Co., Jonathan Strange… #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 11 2016

A #MG or #YA project that touches on the experience of undocumented immigration in the USA. #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 11 2016

A #YA project that makes me feel like DOPE did. https://t.co/BALjJw2cSe #MSWL
