#MSWL Would love to see some fantasy based on non-western cultures. Adult, YA and MG. I will look at it all but especially like darker elements.

#MSWL “I don’t think people understand how much kids like horror right now.” Quote from my 13yo son. So send me #YA horror pls. #MG horror is going strong now (head nods at @saskwriter). YA needs to make a big shelf—these kids are growing up. I *think* it could be the next trend.

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 isn’t her real dad & the dad doesn’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.

#MSWL alt-reality dark ages YA #F w/kick-butt female protag knight wielding sword & magical powers, but prefers sword. Equally bad-a male seeming antag who end up fighting the same force, one darker than any one imagines. Dark tumultuous rough raw setting & full-tension romance.

#MSWL Far-future YA. Humanity's population is decimated. People separated by vast distances. They know of our glorious past & technological marvels, but can't replicate it. Then a beacon floods the sky in the distance, & 4 teens from different villages are sent to investigate...

#MSWL Utopian YA novel with a dark, dangerous undertone.

#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 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!!!

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

#MSWL I want a YA about a family forced due to unfortunate circumstances to sell everything, buy a camper van, and go on an adventure meant to mask their misfortune, though conflict ensues, but love and faith bloom too.

#MSWL Today, I found myself driving along the original Trail of Tears. As a person of Cherokee descent, I would love to see a #YA (maybe #MG) centered on the Trail of Tears. #POC Any stories built from oral tradition? #NativeAmerican
