I’ve been hungry for some specific things lately, so as I’m reading through the wonderful fulls I’ve got, I’m going to temporarily open to queries for some very specific #MSWL items. 🧵WITH INSTRUCTIONS BELOW 👇

I plan to reopen by the end of summer, and once I do I'll probably stay open for a few months and then close again for a few months to get caught back up on subs. And then open again for the same. That tends to be my pattern.

And might as well note when I reopen I'll also be looking for fun, bonkers, glitzy, exciting New Adult contemporary & rom-com w/out speculative elements too!

I'd love to see some really unexpected, out-of-the-box stuff! Nice mashups of the weird and the fun with romance. #MSWL

And I'm also #MSWL looking for other New Adult settings that can have speculative elements thrown in: NA spy stories w/speculative, NA vacation stories with the same, NA movie set stories w/speculative.

Make it cozy, rompy, bonkers, 🔥unexpected🔥, glitzy!! I'm hungry for this.

#MSWL Something I'll be looking for when I reopen are ✨cozy New Adult fantasies✨ that blend fun, speculative elements, & romance w/spice.

I'll be looking for lots of variations including genre mixing, romcoms at magical colleges, contemporaries w/protagonists who have magic...

And for folks wondering what I mean when I say I want "New Adult", I'm specifically looking for projects with a YA-ish tone, protagonists aged ≈20-23, & room for spice. These are your upper college aged protagonists & new grads experiencing adulthood for the first time! #MSWL

Behold! Here's my highly attractive handwriting illustrating the ✨new categories✨ I'll be open to when I reopen to queries!

I'll soon also be looking for New Adult Contemporary, New Adult Thrillers/Mysteries, & New Adult Horror/Horrormance (not too gruesome though!) #MSWL

#MSWL Definitely in my nostalgia era: would love to see fun teen spy/heist/secret society books like I read ten years ago! I *adored* Ally Carter's lively plotlines and would love to see new takes with similar levels of fun/adventure, especially from BIPOC and queer authors!

#MSWL In response to the characters-in-college discourse, I'm *definitely* looking for projects w/characters in college (trade school, etc.)!

Give me college romance, college adventure, college heists, fantasy colleges, colleges in space!! Looking for both upper YA & New Adult!

#MSWL Remember those YA romantic dystopian books from 10-15 years ago? LEGEND, SHATTER ME - I even count HUNGER GAMES here. I'd LOVE to see some new, fresh romantic dystopian!

(No plague-based books or books where the world is dystopian because it's misogynist, though, please.)

#MSWL I’m also always on the look out for:
✨genre mixing projects!
✨gap area projects!

These are books that do fun things w/genre boundaries and/or hit "gap" areas of the market: voice-y lower MG, adventurous (or romantic) upper MG/lower YA, upper YA & New Adult.

#MSWL I’d love some fun, voice-y school dramas both MG and YA. Kids scheming things, kids getting away with things, kids having adventures on fieldtrips gone awry!

And I'm happy to look at projects with unusual formats like The Tapper Twins series.

#MSWL Looking for something that gives Jennifer A. Nielsen's THE FALSE PRINCE vibes, though this doesn’t have to be fantasy.

I'm more thinking of something with an interesting, tightly bounded setting, easy to read but emotionally charged prose, and a twist.

#MSWL I’d love to see some YA, NA, or Adult projects set on the set of a non-U.S. TV show/movie!

Probably not reality show based (unless the show has a an all BIPOC cast) so more that the set is just the setting w/the heart of the story elsewhere.

#MSWL Would love some nouveau riche casts in material too! Probably most interested in international settings for Adult work, though happy to see U.S. settings too especially in YA.

MG, YA, NA/Adult welcome. Genre mixing or SFF w/same vibes welcome! Would love BIPOC casts!

#MSWL Just binged Arsenal Military Academy (the C-drama) & I'd LOVE to see stories w/similar weird-but-they-REALLY-work, squad goal friendships!

Happy to see romance/fantasy/historical or other genres here! Would love boarding school settings, big friendships/staked adventure!
