K.A. Holt 🏳️🌈 @karianneholtMy son's teacher got booted from their class Zoom, and a kid in class was randomly made the host. The kid immediately muted everyone, starting played Juice Wrld, and a dance party ensued.
I mean... give that kid credit for being prepared.
Jolene Haley @JoleneHaleyThere are not nearly enough YA mysteries in my inbox. I want stories full of secrets and intricately woven storylines with friendship/enemies/romance at the core.
Think: Pretty Little Liars, One of Us is Lying, Revenge, Twisted, The Lying Game

Dean Lines @deanlinesWhen I was like 14, me and a few mates would “wag” French class and hide out in the soundproof drum room until lunch time. This went on for a few weeks when one day we discovered a “trap door” beneath the carpet tiled floor under the drum kit. We of course opened the trap door.. twitter.com/spur_of/status…
The tone, the humor, the shenanigans. I love it.

Lane @lanewriteswordsSo what if we took that Sarah Dessen/Jenny Han fluffy cheerful aesthetic and made the characters Black and just had a whole genre that was joyful Black kids? Black teen beach reads. Something for the summer, something to dance to.
Woukd love to read these in my query inbox! #mswl
I love books that force us to have an internal debate about a subject, especially when it makes us see the villainous tidbits of our personalities and helps us change into a better version of ourselves.
Look at these amazing graphic novel ARCs the amazing @WhitLeopard just gave me! I don’t know which one to dive into first!
#MSWL graphic novels from ages 4-19 please!

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheimI love this podcast episode with @HeatherCashman. You likely know her from PitchWars. Now, hear her talk about writing, agenting, and her view from both sides of the desk. Stream here: soundcloud.com/user-965795498… 🎧 @MSWLMA
I'm wondering why I almost never get queried with contemporary manuscripts. Perhaps it's the 'all genres' that's making people shy away...
Is anyone out there writing rom-coms or contemporary with fresh twists?
I love contemporary too. :)
