Kelly Says PREORDER TIDES OF MUTINY NOW!
Katie @Katiew552Once a month, my high school boyfriend calls. I’ve shared this before. And I’m sure I’ll share it a million times. But once a month he calls.
This needs to be a story. It needs to be a book with a happy ending. Someone write it, and then we can revel more in the “what if’s” and “if only’s” of all of our pasts, and make them come to life…if only in our minds…#MSWL
I’ve also, unfortunately, had my fill of witches for now, so I’m sorry friends, but no more witches for me unless it’s some super high fantasy with something other than elemental magic. 💔 #mswl
I know I’ve been dubbed the Pirate Queen of YA Fantasy, but really...i dont want pirates anymore unless it’s in adult fantasy/historical. Sorry to break some hearts. 💔🏴☠️#mswl
Adult Romance where she falls in love with the completely WRONG person first, and then falls in love with the RIGHT person, as they patiently win their heart over because they’ve loved them for years, and the MC realizes exactly how manipulative their last relationship was! #mswl
Starting up a new #mswl Thread since I’m opening my box on Monday! I’ll be adding to this over the next few days as I think of more things I’m DYING for!
Of course the one night I get out of work at 9, I finish watching Bly Manor and UGLY CRY. God, that was just the most beautiful and horrific and sad and UGHHHHH OMG. I’ll take it in book form, thanks. If it’s in my box already, let me know. #mswl
Platonic friendship stories, a la The Half of It. Even if one side kind of likes the other, the friendship here is what really drove this story home, and the sacrifices and compromises they made in order to keep it and do right by each other. MORE please. ❤️ #MSWL
Ghost stories. Don’t know why. Don’t know if they will even sell. But I want all the ghost stories that will literally scare me out of bed at night. Thanks in advance for the lack of sleep. If you can honestly scare me, you’re hired. 👻 #MSWL
Also really looking for some amazing African mythology and cultural beliefs/customs via contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, or just plain fantasy. #MSWL Saw one in my box and am saving it to circle back. I’d love more!!!
I’m also still begging for my King Louis XIV sun king historical court intrigue with maybe a little magic? Historical Fantasy? I could go for just historical too if the writing fits! ❤️ #MSWL
Spoke to an editor this morning and reminded myself how much I want a historical in MG, YA, or Adult about a gun-toting, foul mouthed, self-sufficient woman like Ruby from Cold Mountain. Any country or continent or sexuality or skin color. I’m tired of petticoats. #MSWL
Agent V @VeroniKaboom#MSWL this, so much, so SO much twitter.com/Ceee_Teee/stat…
If anyone sends this to V, y’all better send to me too and expect the most epic of dance battles to happen. #mswl
Kelly is OPEN to Queries @LitAgentKellyI just spent the last few hours watching The Half Of It, and then spent a lot of time and energy realizing the absolute brilliance of the emotional depth and reality of this movie. If anyone has this as a comp title...I really, really would love it right now. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/h652JbvTnY
And listen, here’s the thing: I’m good with romance being messy and not always ending well, but the only contemporary stories I find that aren’t HEA YA romance are usually about suicide. Where are the middle ground manuscripts which this movie SO EXCELLENTLY defined?! #MSWL

So, with all of that said, I'm really looking for some well written Adult Contemporary Romance. I'm super into Tinder date fails rn, enemies to lovers tropes, BFFs to Lovers tropes, and boss a$$ women who don't sacrifice their work for any man. #MSWL Slow Burns favored! 😉
I will still be open to YA stories, but will be much more selective about them (or I will TRY to be! I keep picking them up, gosh darn it! I've been trying!) However, I currently have 6 mostly YA authors on my roster, and I need more adult and MG authors! #MSWL
