When I reopen my query inbox in January, can someone please send me a fantasy where a cat is the McGuffin? #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

Adult Rom-Coms. Something fun and funny would make me really ridiculously happy. #MSWL

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL

YA Horror where the thing to fear is more than just a dude with a machete. Something chilling and lurking, like It Follows or The Babadook. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

I’d love a big YA fantasy set in a dazzling world I can get lost in. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

MG stories about family, in all shapes and sizes! #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

I love quiet magic, MG fantasy that showcases small wonders rather than earth-shaking feats. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

Send me all the creepy MG! Something eerie and spooky, but not too gory (more Coraline than It). Make me worry about the things that go bump in the night. #MSWL

Some things I will forever have a soft spot for:
-cinnamon roll protagonists who try SO HARD 😭
-quiet moments of heartbreak that sneak up on you
-found families
-fake dating
-strange, eerie magic
-beautiful, haunting writing

I just had a dream that I was reading a book about a heist at a high school reunion, like Breakfast Club meets Usual Suspects, and now I want it. #MSWL

Hey, remember how in the 90s we had a wealth of MG novels about haunted dollhouses reenacting murders? I miss those. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Jul 19

I still really want a retelling of Persuasion. #MSWL

(This is my sneaky way of getting more people to read this under appreciated classic and getting on the Wentworth ship 😉)

I know I tweet this every time I do a Miss Fisher rewatch, but I’d kill for an “opposites attract” romantic duo that sizzles like Phryne and Jack. THOSE LOOKS! #MSWL
