#MSWL I'm in the mood for some quirky scifi. I'm still sad over the quirky scifi project that got away! I want some rebound quirky scifi please.

#MSWL Middle Grade kid chefs. Lots of unique fun-for-kids recipes the character make themselves that kid readers can try to make.

I'd love a YA Thriller centered around the theme, "Looks can be deceiving." Ensemble cast. #MSWL

#MSLW I've seen queries before w/ worlds where water is scarce. Would love to see something like this in the YA or even MG space when I reopen to queries. You can always put something like "#MSWL For YA drought-world book" or whatever the MSWL is in the referral space.

Gender-flipped contemporary Cinderella retelling, except I want “Cin” to be damaged, the bad boy, who needs rescuing in true enemies-to-lovers fashion by his “princess.” Make him sympathetic & redeemable at first. Make us only really like him as the plot develops. #MSWL

Ok I want an (off world) book in which a civilized technological (maybe emerging technological) society uncovers the remnants of a lost world, a different species, who once occupied their world, even achieved greater than them before their ruin. Literary or upmarket SFF?? #MSWL

Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

Does anyone have this???

🚀WAKANDA IN SPACE👽

... not actually Wakanda (copyrights you know?) but highly-technical, gloriously deeply cultural, #ownvoices only please. Wakanda x Star Trek.

Reply here if you query me this!

This GIANT SPACE rocket falling to 🌏 is making me think about people living on a far-future grimdark earth, high tech, but space junk is always falling, destroying, changing lives & fortunes, & of course there're the elite who live up above & make the mess down below. #MSWL

TBH, I was just thinking about A DOG's PURPOSE, and then I was all like, "oh yeah but make it YA, and smoochie, and like darkly romantic, and not about dogs, but people, and maybe the world has magic already ..." So, that's my brain.

#MSWL I think it'd be really cool to get a YA fantasy (probs with a heavy romance subplot) with reincarnation as the crux upon which the pendulum swings. Doesn't have to be set on a realistic earth. Could be a fantasy world to make the world building deeper. Either way.

#MSWL Middle Grade Mystery w/a girl protag! Think THE INHERITANCE GAMES but for middle grade (not that exact concept; I’m just giving an example of 🔥-high-concept mystery). Fast plotting. Short chapters. Chapter cliff hangers, pls. Commercial but some emotional nuance too pls!
