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.

Would love a YA I Dream of Genie meets Weird Science #MSWL. Think two high school boys end up with magic lantern, hijinks ensue. Awkward male coming of age but more heartfelt emotions, not sexed up fantasy. But super fun and funny.

#MSWL would love a Christmas romance filled with magic realism. Give me Santa, hidden secrets, wishes coming true, North Pole, lots of snow, whatever it is, let me feel the magic!

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL
