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

#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.

#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

@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

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

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 11

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

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Feb 11

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

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jan 23 2016

A MG or YA project (fiction or non) that focuses on the experiences of undocumented immigrants in America. #mswl

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jan 7 2016

I would love love LOVE to find a YA manuscript that makes me feel like DOPE did. #mswl https://t.co/BALjJw2cSe

Happy holidays from the #TBA team! Check out our last wishlist of the year: https://t.co/Im9XlHYqEg #mswl

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Nov 4 2015

I want a YA novel where Muslim and brown teens deal with the fallout post-9/11. Like, the first few days.

Oh, yes. So do I. #mswl https://t.co/HlhQ1pP6DC

#MSWL Halloween Edition: Send me your ghosts & goblins, your witches & werewolves, your bogeymen, and—yes—even your vampires. Scare me.

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jul 16 2015

Basically, I go for thrillers w/ high concepts or strong speculative elements, e.g., THE ROOK by @DenimAlley or @jeffreysomers clones. #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · Jul 16 2015

I love thrillers, but I'm not the right agent for stories about grizzled ex-CIA/military types—unless they're also, say, vampires. #MSWL
