If you send me the next When You Reach Me you can have my first born. Same goes for Serpent King. #MSWL #MG #YA

Absolutely #ownvoices , but looking for stories of ALL kinds from marginalized writers. #MSWL #YA #MG

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

Give me a sense of place, a definite local culture and attitude. Don't see enough stories in Alaska, Florida, Hawaii, Maine. #MSWL #YA #MG

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

Give me a mysterious middle-grade that unfolds like a puzzle box. Think Westing Game meets Nail Gaiman. Westing Gaiman? #MSWL

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

Always always: I want ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND for #YA . #MSWL

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

Send me the books kids will sneak / steal / borrow in secret. Those personal, dangerous, life-saving stories. #MSWL #YA #MG

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

Said it before, but I'm looking for moments that make me look up and say “Wow, yes. I’ve felt that.” #MSWL #YA #MG

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

In YA, I'm always eager for fantasy and high-concept stories. Give me a world we've never seen before. #MSWL

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · 2w

I am on a serious hunt for middle-grade. Fantasy, contemporary, character-driven, action-packed. You name it. #MSWL

Had lunch with the brilliant @Tiff_Liao today, who posited a young adult GET OUT. And now I want that so bad I can't see straight. #MSWL

#MSWL Academy participants, be prepared to meet my cat, who is very interested in Skype. And my keyboard.

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · Apr 18

Especially #MG that will make me laugh AND cry. #MSWL

John M. Cusick @johnmcusick · Apr 18

Authors! I'm searching hard for #MG . Fantasy, contemporary, coming-of-age, you name it. #MSWL
