And for the wild card: hipster noir! #mswl

If you can describe your novel as having a commercial premise with a literary execution, send it my way. #mswl

I love fantasy, but please nothing Tolkien-esque. SorryNotSorry, but I’m not a fan. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

I love near-future sci-fi like Ex Machina and Looper. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

I love horror, but not overly-supernatural. I prefer reality-based scares. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

Also, food. Anything that deals with food in a really fun (maybe magical) way. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

Anything set in the arts/theater (drama/dance/symphony/opera) will bring my inner drama club kid such joy. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

Still on the hunt for a really original novel/opera/ballet/myth retelling. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

Also, mystery MG. Give me all the precocious kid sleuths. #mswl

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 30 Dec 2017

Specifically, I’d love to see more historical YA in a variety of time periods (especially the Roaring 20s). #mswl

I’m reopening to queries starting 1/2/18, so in anticipation I’m going to tweet out my #mswl...

Over all, I’d love to see more:
-high concept MG and YA
-commercial adult fiction
-#ownvoices stories
-MCs with strong, distinct voices
-comedy across the board
-stories that break my heart and then put it back together

Forever + Always #MSWL: moody and romantic modernized mythology. Or, my aesthetic in an album: open.spotify.com/album/4E34mVDB…

This is still my favorite SYTYCD choreo, and if I could get this in a YA novel, I would be very very happy. #MSWL

Fell down the Parts Unknown rabbit hole, and now I want a YA with a teen travel show host. #MSWL

If you're not listening to Flash Forward podcast, you should. And if you have a MS with a twisted, science-based future, query me. #MSWL

#MSWL: I'd love a noir told from the femme fatale POV, rather than the PI.
