Oh, and witches. Forever and always, witches. #mswl

Also, give me diversity/inclusion, and #ownvoices , in any of the above, please! #mswl

Back to YA, I'd love to see more Good Girls Gone Bad vibes. Think @lynnweingarten 's SUICIDE NOTES or @AmandaKMorgan 's SUCH A GOOD GIRL #mswl

Also in MG, it might be cool to see something from the POV of the Chosen One's not-so-chosen sibling. #mswl

In MG, I'd love to see a dual POV adventure fantasy! In a series! #mswl

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · 2w

epic fantasy + horror is something I've always been interested in, so that's something I'd love to see in my inbox for YA! #mswl

I'd also love to revive urban fantasy in YA, though not necessarily with the paranormal vibes we saw before. Give me new things! #mswl

I'd love to see some YA that takes a normally safe/boring place and twists it with darkness...turns it on its head. #mswl

buddos, if you're writing a multi-racial couple it doesn't have to be 1 nonwhite person & 1 white person. Like. It can be 2 nonwhite ppl.

Honestly, this is probably #1 on my #mswl right now. Agents, please send this! Whatever you've got! https://t.co/yhxr2z7oJK

#MSWL more YA about mental health, or health in general. #ownvoices especially.

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Sep 13

Not a usual #MSWL for me, but I'd love to have something from someone with a BIG platform or LOTS of visibility. Fiction, nonfic, whatever!

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Jul 13 2016

#MSWL : commercial YA fiction w/ darkness or edge; unpredictable spec fic/genre; complex romance; and especially #OwnVoices lit, of any kind!

I'm still looking for an LGBT fantasy or sci-fi with a POC protag! #MSWL

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Mar 10 2016

#mswl Still looking for a LGBT+ POC protagonist in a SFF novel (by an author of color).

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Feb 11 2016

#mswl a realistic contemp YA with an asexual (but maybe not aromantic) protagonist, please.

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Feb 11 2016

#mswl a YA non-European fantasy with a male protagonist

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Oct 28 2015

Also, where are my LGBTQA+ POC characters in realistic fiction? I'd like to see that as well. Or in spec fic. Either works. #mswl

Andy (aka Michael) @cupcakeandy · Oct 28 2015

#mswl I'd love a YA set in West Africa. I don't really have a story in mind, just that location. Something speculative would be AMAZING.
