Beating @BethanyRobison to it but YA in RL (Christian Pulisic is 18, y'all). #USMNT

Also #MSWL

A YA that takes place in the world of competition cheerleading! This was me in high school. 😉 #MSWL

Southern gothic—salt marshes and sweet tea, porch swings and haunted plantations. Would esp love to find an #ownvoices hoodoo book. #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · 16 May 2017

Paranormal that doesn’t feel like 2010s demons/ vamps. Give me the creatures of non-western cultures. Esp looking for #ownvoices here. #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · 16 May 2017

A sweeping, epic LQBTQIA+ fantasy with world building that moves beyond heteronormativity and gender binaries. #MSWL

Historical retellings or AU history. Biblical retellings. Maybe a gender-swapped Alexandra the Great or a YA Esther. #MSWL

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Would love to find a YA in the vein of WGN’s Underground—but only if this is your story to tell. No white saviors. No master/slaves. #MSWL

But some things I'm specifically on the lookout for...

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Contemp stories of teens accomplishing amazing things, like competing in the Olympics, Youtube sensations, social justice advocates. #MSWL
