#MSWL someone write me a paranormal legal thriller, with a series in mind, with a hotshot young attorney who gets help from the ghost of former detective who canโ€™t let his work go even in death (or something along those lines).

To take it a step further, Iโ€™m thinking like a goddess daughter born in modern times. #MSWL

I would very much like a middle grade novel about the (unknown) daughter of Hades and Persephone. #MSWL (something humorous like Percy Jackson please, but obvi not set in that same world).

I've noticed a trend in some of my personal reading, Tau Zero, Spin, Seveneves. They all have something in common. The stories take place over millions of years. Some humans live for eons. Some as a people evolve over time. I'm totally up to represent something like this. #MSWL

Okay, things are about to get weird, but can someone please send me a super masculine viking who gets portaled to the future, but a future in the midst of an apocalypse, and of course there's love and adventure and he's uniquely qualified to save the day #ReverseOutlander #MSWL

#MSWL LATINX VAMPIRES! (would be great if the author used latinx cultural connection to death as an element of the story). #POC.

#MSWL Inspy/Christian thriller like Cara Putnamโ€™s HIDDEN JUSTICE series except with a religious yet ultra strong, savvy & compassionate lead female detective. This MSWL inspired by Dateline Secrets Uncovered Good & Evil episodeโ€™s real-life Detectice Trapp. Sheโ€™s the lead I want.

Also, surely there is a fantasy novel featuring Grand Central as a wild nexus of portals to magical worlds? If not, I would love for an author of color to write that & send it to me. #MSWL

#MSWL. I would love this so much, especially from an author who has spent time in Grand Central and understands its nuances. Ever lost a key on the train? The lost and found has so many keys! Maybe heโ€™s the key master to each gateway!

#MSWL I know a certain someone, say this very nice editor person, who would love to get their hands on a Christian GONE GIRL. Can it be done? Did you do it? This MS must be a lion, not a kitten. Query me via the Query Manager link in bio. Referral line: #MSWL Inspy Gone Girl

#MSWL I want a MS that includes a romance, framed around an antihero like Damon from the Vampire Diaries (doesnโ€™t have to be straight romance & Iโ€™m not necessarily looking for a vampire). Wounded, bad to the bone (but good too, redeemable), infuriatingly compelling. Give me.

The man who came up with the idea of the singularity talks about it in a great interview: buff.ly/2zy1EAz

#MSWL This, but in an future human-occupied earth-world where that super-intelligent AI is benevolent, but then maybe another super-intelligent AI shows up from another system, one who's not so nice.

Ok this ones courtesy of my best friend, Hanna & an ancestry DNA talk on Thanksgiving. #MSWL a contemporary YA that explores the ramifications of a teen finding out through a genealogy DNA test (think school project) that her dad isnโ€™t her real dad & the dad doesnโ€™t know either.

I remember this movie that ends with a boy & girl from Earth being dropped off on a planet somewhere in the cosmos to start over/2nd chance, this while I think Earth's being destroyed/punished for our failures. Riff on this w/YA or MG. What happened/happens to these kids #MSWL.
