Alyssa Jennette Is Closed To Queries!
Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
Still yes!!! (Since we're in the vein of forgery and heists...) #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennetteLast night I spoke with a friend who recently judged a Mrs. pageant. I'd like a (funny, thoughtful, maybe even scary--surprise me) novel about a pageant like that, please. #MSWL
More people, look at this #MSWL!
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennetteHow many times have I asked for this? Give me my friendship breakup book—it hurts at every age. #MSWL twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I'll request this until I get it or I die. #MSWL
Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintempleIt’s #MSWL Day! I’ll be putting a handful of MSWL tweets in this thread for easy finding. My ManuscriptWishList.com profile isn’t set up just yet, but it’s in progress and I’ll drop a link into this thread when it’s up 😁
tbh allllll of Kristin's #MSWL totally resonates for me, so check them out here!
Dana Murphy @manadurphyas a gal with many straight, strictly platonic, male best friends, I would love to see more of that in both YA and Adult #MSWL
Wholeheartedly agreed. #MSWL
Sara Schonfeld @SaraSchonThe pitch: a modern day ghost-hunter, but instead of locating spirits, they're a detective who tracks down exes who have cut off communication.
This is a genuine--and impossible IRL--dream job, so I'd at least like to rep a book about it. #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennette#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true. twitter.com/rachsyme/statu…
When you're writing YA, consider how teens ACTUALLY communicate and use technology! Please! #MSWL
#MSWL Anything about a procedure-based art form/career. The scene in Toy Story 2 where Woody is getting restored is like porn to me.
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennette#MSWL You know how ghosts are often described in Victorian-era clothes? I'd love a creepy book that links all the Victorian ghosts back to death-centric rituals/obsessions of that era--the hair rings, eating ashes, etc.
And, by extension, the death-centric rituals we perform throughout time and culture in order to hold onto a person's memory/essence. #MSWL

Nicole Cliffe @Nicole_CliffeAnd he has, like, literally 25 hot nieces so there were a LOT of dinners in which a niece got a free meal with a nice young man and the opportunity to woo him away from contemplating a life of celibacy. They were not offended that he chose the latter, God’s calling is strong.

danielle chuatico @ SPX @danichuaticoNow we just need an Asian retelling please of a whole bunch of sisters and their parents are like you need to get married or become a lawyer/nurse
Destiny Rae Smith ✍🏻🏳️🌈📚 @DestinyRaeSmithIt makes me so sad when I type in “plus-sized” or “fat” into #MSWL, I get hardly any results.

Yes, hello! #mswl
I finished Stranger Things 3 and the most important takeaway—the thing that brought me the most joy—was the children loving, trusting, and working with each other. A close second? The adults listening to and trusting the children. #MSWL
Karen Chaplin @CapChapReads#mswl MG I’d love to see a manuscript about the drama, the friendships, etc., that happen in an after-school aftercare program that’s part of a middle school but not really. A Breakfast-Club-esque kind of group.
