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

I might die if someone sent me something as voicey as ODD THOMAS, with all of its other attributes as well. #MSWL

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

#MSWL Give me a MG novel where a group of middle school friends (guys and girls) get sucked into a #Fortnite game! And ... go!

#MSWL Romace please! Maybe akin to overboard but on the high seas and famous ports. Or maybe more serious. Open to a lot of interpretation! 👉Confessions of a superyacht stewardess @CNN cnn.it/2Pxz7CE👈

#MSWL Looking for a rom-com “Marriage Pact,” where one of the “signers” calls in the pact when both turn 30 without marriages of their own. The other’s not interested, and the hijinks ensue. I want to feel like Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan could play the leads in the movie version!

#MSWL I’d love a Romance featuring a female firefighter 👩‍🚒 AND I’d love a romance series featuring the young residents/new doctors and nurses of a hospital. Mix them up with each other, older doctors, nurses, police and first reponders. Give me settings: ER, surgery, etc.

I want a kitschy play on a future earth protected by Space Force. #mswl. I’m feeling it as a kind of Space Balls meets Star Wars but not as dumb as Idiocracy. Think clever. Wit. OR ... I could be ok with a serious plot too.

#MSWL I want an MS set a DEF CON—the huge hacker convention held in Las Vegas. Crazy stuff must go down. High-energy. Thriller-esque. Contemporary or near-future (give me crazy attire, cool world building), YA or Adult. Save the world. Solve a puzzle. But HIGH stakes!!!

Just went tubing with my family for an end-of-summer blowout in Alpine Helen & now I want a romance (with a series in mind) of adventure outfitters employees finding ♥️: raft, canoe, kayak, whitewater, fishing, horses. Set in tourist town. Montana, Maine? I don’t know! #MSWL

#MSWL Thinking about the dichotomy of things & I want a near-future DYSTOPIAN where nothing is cleaned up & pretty. Want the horror (w/out major gore) of floods, earthquakes, death etc w/the thread of hope. Both pain & beauty. Give it to me...would love this with a literary feel.

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 17 May 2018

I'm in the market for some fun, tropey romance. #MSWL

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 4 May 2018

Hey did I mention I am looking for inspirational and mainstream category romance? Would love to see things that fit Love Inspired, Hallmark, Harlequin Heartwarming, etc. More sweet than salty. #MSWL Query me: querymanager.com/query/1032

If you want to know something about me, it’s that I love baseball. I’m a “travel” baseball mom. Little league. Big League. Braves. Give me a baseball book. MG, YA, Romance, who knows... but baseball. #MSWL
