I am very actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels of all types. I read so many as a teen (and continue to read them) and would love to work on some as an agent! Artists, if you have proposals or ideas query me! #PortfolioDay #MSWL

So, I mention that I like horror of the downright creepy variety. This will give you a sense of what that would be. As soon as I saw the trailer for this game I almost evil laughed 😉 👻💀 supermassivegames.com/games/man-of-m… #MSWL #YAhorror #ghostship #manofmedan @SuperMGames

Hello twitterverse! I am now very selectively looking for adult fantasy. I read a lot of adult high fantasy as a teen and still love it. I often am drawn to unique epic fantasy with a strong heroine as the MC as well as a romance subplot. #MSWL

So in light of my recent October-themed tweets, please do send me all your creepy, eerie, scary and strange YA and MG horror, mystery and thrillers. I am 100% in the mood for a good scare and all thing that go bump in the night! #MSWL

I would love to see a quirky YA love story that give me all the feels with a love interest who isn't possessive/a jerk. Hetero and LGBTQ love stories all welcome! #MSWL

Just learned about Mary G. Ross---one of the first female Native American engineers. She worked on design concepts for interplanetary space travel!! If any Native American writers (she was Cherokee) want to write her story, I'd LOVE to see it! :) #MSWL

I just came across a YA book coming out that used Pan's Labyrinth as a comp. I LOVE that movie and Guillermo del Toro's work in general. Writers, if you use any of his films as comps and I am so in! Delightfully dark, beautiful visuals and fantastical! #MSWL

Inspired by the latest #GodofWar game and #skyinthedeep I am really wanting a dark YA fantasy with the valkyries in it! #MSWL

In light of seeing #AQuietPlacemovie tonight, I'd LOVE to see all the YA and MG horror--smart, creepy, not derivative, with a twist. I'm not as into slasher horror---but genuinely suspenseful and scary. #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 12 Sep 2017

All the #MG (literary, commercial, mystery, horror, adventure, magical realism--dark or light) Almost anything! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 12 Sep 2017

The Magicians-esque contemp. fantasy for #YA or a unique, non-western epic fantasy (dark and romantic is a +). Always loved fantasy! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 12 Sep 2017

As always, I'm still looking for all things creepy and horror! #YA #MG Final Girls for YA #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL I really want a sister story or a friendship story (boy/girl, boy/boy, girl/girl) that focuses on that without a romance. #YA #MG

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 13 Feb 2017

A late #MSWL post, but I'd love to see a Roanoke inspired horror YA. Think last season of American Horror Story.

I'd love to see something with a diverse group of teen activists standing up for others and what they believe in #MSWL #YA

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 13 Sep 2016

All the middle grade #MG !!! Heartfelt, funny, friendship or sister story, mystery, adventure, creepy. Any of these. #MSWL

I've been craving some sci-fi lately. Not so much alien or robot invasions/takeovers. Give me interstellar journies, space opera etc. #MSWL
