“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I’m dying to find an adult novel (submission) that chains me to my computer until I’m done reading. Specifically a dark, twisty, suspenseful novel. (Recent favorites: The Push, Blacktop Wasteland, Attica Locke, Leave the World Behind) #MSWL

book recommendation twitter—

anyone have recommendations for some ✨suburban✨ fantasy? like urban fantasy, except no detectives/cops, inner city, gritty stuff.

What are some books like that like...Desperate Housewives with magic?

Can I have this in kidlit with POC? I was convinced when I was a kid that nothing magical or even INTERESTING could ever happen for a Mexican kid in suburban TX like me, and I would have LOVED to have a fantasy novel prove me wrong #mswl

Tropes are tropes for a reason: people love them. And they love seeing their comfort content through different lenses. These worlds are universal; we should show that! I am here all day—truly willing to wait in the QueryManager lobby for hours—for these stories. #MSWL

THIS!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 If a trope and/or trend has "already been done” but it's never been done by BIPOC authors, I want to read it 💜 This is forever on my #MSWL

Competitions! I looooove books with competitions, especially when they're speculative: The Hunger Games, A Gathering of Shadows, Caraval, The Selection. I'm a big fan. #mswl

I see so many things comped to Naomi Novik that those comps have kind of lost meaning for me, but nevertheless I love romantic and literary fantasy that draws from folklore, especially if it's interrogating heavier topics, as SPINNING SILVER interrogates antisemitism. #mswl

Horror! Things that keep me awake at night! If it can comp to MEXICAN GOTHIC or Hill House/Bly Manor (or Pan's Labyrinth, my perennial fave), I want to see it! #mswl

Historical with fabulist elements. Think Alice Hoffman — literary prose, a sharply defined setting, just a hint of magic. #MSWL

I think it's time to start a 2021 #MSWL thread. I'll add to this as I think of things, but for now, here is what I would love to see in my inbox.

Picture books! I've had a blast working on picture book texts recently and I'd love to see more of them.

I like fresh concepts with strong illustration potential and language that pops. #MSWL

I am obsessed with houses born bad. I'd love to see more ghost stories (MG and adult) with a house as a major character! #mswl
