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. Iโ€™m tired of petticoats. #MSWL

Kelly is OPEN to Queries @LitAgentKelly

I 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, hereโ€™s the thing: Iโ€™m good with romance being messy and not always ending well, but the only contemporary stories I find that arenโ€™t HEA YA romance are usually about suicide. Where are the middle ground manuscripts which this movie SO EXCELLENTLY defined?! #MSWL

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

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

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! =)

*screams from rooftop*

Because I donโ€™t have enough: I rep ADULT ROMANCE, HISTORICAL, SCI-FI, FANTASY. I rep MG CONTEMPORARY, HISTORICAL, SCI-FI, FANTASY. In addition to the YA Fantasy I have, I also rep YA CONTEMPORARY, SCI-FI, HISTORICAL, THRILLER/PARANORMAL! #MSWL please.

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

You know what Iโ€™m missing right now? A high fantasy (either YA or Adult) with a brilliant new world to get lost in and a fully developed, ingenious magic system. Anyone have one for me? #MSWL

#MSWL YA friendship breakups. Those were always worse than romantic breakups. Whereโ€™s my tearful BFF breaks?!

P.S. This movie gets me in the feels every time.

YA Horror ghost stories are life. If it doesnโ€™t make your skin crawl while writing it, I donโ€™t want it. #MSWL #paranormalactivity

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

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 YA futuristic Sci-Fi, much like Westworld, or maybe something like Pacific Rim! :)

#MSWL I'm still looking for this gem: Maybe a YA fantasy about the lowly shop sweeper or something? Give me a literal "nobody" and make her story remarkable w/o royalty.
