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

Good Morning! I am OPEN to queries for 2020, which means it's time to do a #MSWL thread!

For 2020, I am mostly looking for Middle Grade (Upper) and Adult stories! This includes MG Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, and Historical or any mix of the above! It also includes Adult Contemporary Romance and Adult Fantasy and any mix of the two! #MSWL

I am heavily looking for MG and YA thrillers and paranormal horrors for the fall/Halloween season...and probably beyond that too. WHERE ARE ALL THE GHOSTS, DEMONS, MONSTERS, and humans who act like they're one of the above? #MSWL

I'm definitely looking to add to my MG list! I love some contemp. MG that deals with tough issues, MG fantasy, and MG sci-fi (yes, sometimes even the space kind here). I'm SUPER picky about MG voice though, so just send it in and see what happens! =) Maybe I'll love it! #MSWL

So I found my witch writer, my pirates writer, and my ballet writer this year! WOOO!!! What am I looking for next?...

...Sci-Fi, gaming, and dystopian/futuristic sci-fi. I'm not a space opera person though! Sorry! #MSWL This goes for MG and YA! =)

For whatever reason, Iโ€™m really craving some historical MG, YA, and Adult right now. Scotland history and mythology in the Jacobites time, Louis the XIV court intrigue, French Revolution YA, Spanish Civil War, House of Savoy unification of Italy, Russian Revolution, etc.. #MSWL

Also, video game competitions and maybe even cons in MG! Dungeons and Dragons too? Something nerdy and feisty and showcasing kids who arenโ€™t afraid to be who they are and ROCK. THE. WORLD. With their nerdiness. #MSWL

Iโ€™m not a cooking manuscript person, but I AM a sports person. Baseball. Dirt bikes. Paintball. Dance. Gymnastics. Girls playing in boys sports. Anyone have a female quarterback in MG? Maybe The Sandlot but for a girl? #mswl

I had asked for a MG wolf story a while ago and am still searching for it. Shapeshifters welcome, or Direwolves like in GOT! Companion. Tribal animal. Wolf anything and everything. I want it. #MSWL

In MG, Iโ€™m really looking for heartwarming stories! One in particular, if anyone has a MG about a girl at space camp, Iโ€™m all about it! #MSWL

I have a lot of YA in my box. You know what Iโ€™d love to have more of? MG (fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary) and Adult Romance! So a few #MSWL for these two age ranges are to follow! โค๏ธ

Also, I just saw the trailer for Bird Box with Sandra Bullock and I will totally be all about that comp title for any incoming YA or MG manuscripts. #MSWL

Was talking to an editor today and we both agreed that we desperately want some hilarious girl books for MG, like Diary of A Wimpy Kid for girls instead of boys. #MSWL because this would be boss and thereโ€™s a need for it.

Just had a talk with one of my beloved editor friends and weโ€™re both dying for some WOLVES. Not werewolves, but like Game of Thrones wolves in YA or MG. WHO HAS THIS? Because we need it. Desperately. #MSWL

#MSWL I had a MG Wolf shapeshifter story slip through my fingers and I was slightly devastated. If you have one (and they're not actually called werewolves), I want it. I'm still hesitant on the vampires unless done differently, but wolves... Wolves are a must!
