Teen quits Walmart job over the store’s intercom: ‘Attention all shoppers ... nobody should work here — ever’ chicagotribune.com/business/ct-bi…
This just reaffirms my desire for a YA Superstorw-esque contemporary 😍 #MSWL
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansI'm hungry for a fantasy that incorporate American folklore: Appalachian, Mississippi Delta, Gullah, etc. Our stories are rich and vibrant and we don't see enough of them in the speculative space. #mswl
Lauren Spieller @ NCTE @laurenspiellerI want a book about a character like Ambrose Spellman--kind, gifted, tortured, and definitely queer af. #mswl pic.twitter.com/osCH2n4ICu
He is the only good thing about that show and there is nowhere near enough of him #MSWL
Tiffany Shelton 🕯️⛤🌙 @TiffanyDiahannI'm going to keep shouting this out into the ether until I get it: GIVE ME CONTEMPORARY WITCHES! #MSWL #YA #Adult
I’m still begging for this!! #MSWL (please no satan-worship)
Erin Eliza👻Booth Grimoire 💕🎃🏳️🌈💀 @kitsune_ramblesCan we start a YA trope called "ridiculously powerful girls and the sweet yet deadly boys who gladly walk through fire to kneel at their feet" because that's what we need in 2018 thank you for coming to my TEDTalk.
Sara Megibow @SaraMegibowI’m currently the only #KTLit agent who represents romance novels. But I’m hoping to convince @HannahFergesen to join me.
Romance novels FTW!
If something with the wit, characters, and swoon factor of THE HATING GAME crossed my desk... ;) #MSWL
MIDDLE GRADE. Gimme allll the middle grade! Contemporary middle grade, magical realism, fairy tales, fantasy. Anything that can described as for fans of Dianna Wynn Jones or Miyazaki will have me salivating #MSWL
Upmarket speculative fiction for adults will always be on my #MSWL. Anything that can be comped to things like Station Eleven, Night Circus, Golem and the Jinni, etc. Spec fic with gorgeous writing and human themes front and center.
I want horror, mystery, and suspense across all categories. Give me serial killers. Give me unreliable narrators. Give me the Satanic Panic. Give me the weird shit. I love dark stories that are challenging and unexpected. #MSWL
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenIt's #MSWL day! Here are some specific things I'd love to get. I'm closed to queries currently but reopen in October, so tuck these in your back pocket for that day. Here we go!
Forever on my #MSWL: stories about women/girls/feminine folx in history. I'm personally tired of WWII, Vikings, the sixties - but there are SO MANY stories from all across history to choose from. I do a podcast about them for this very reason.
