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.

#MSWL I have LITERALLY been begging for YA Fantasy rooted in a Native American tribe's mythology. If any native writers feel confident enough to send me their work, I'd be so happy to read it!

#MSWL As always, I'm so in love with YA. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, Historical, etc.. The things I'm not all that into are actually time travel (in any age range) and alternate dimensions (as of right now...little tired of them...).
