Guys fuck hogwarts houses. What from your current WIP could people sort themselves into? #amwriting

And with this in mind, I'd love to see books with sorting systems or the like. It's one of my favorites things. Hunger Game districts, Percy Jackson demi-god parents, Vampire Academy elementals, also ATLA elements, and so many more. #MSWL

I'm going to bug the #WritingCommunity and #romancelandia again. I'm desperately seeking to represent an author who writes happy, funny, heartfelt books in MG, YA, or Adult. #mswl.

I'd love to see LGBTQ+ YA/NA romcoms in my query box. LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT or something like RWRB! I want to laugh, cry, and fall in love. Like anything with the same relationship as David and Patrick. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #mswl

Watching the new Netflix show Blood & Water and I'd love to see more YA contemporaries outside the US in my inbox. #mswl

I love books, movies, and shows with small towns where everyone knows each other. Stories with lots of emotion. (I'm watching My Girl right now and might watch Steel Magnolias next). Would love some YA, MG, or Upmarket adult stories set in small towns. #mswl

SECRET SOCIETIES, SECRET SOCIETIES, SECRET SOCIETIES, SECRET SOCIETIES, SECRET SOCIETIES. #MSWL

I want them all!

...latched onto my neck and I woke up screaming. I've never done that before. I've yelled in my sleep, but never have I screamed bloody murder.

That's what I want. I want a vampire story that's out of the box and keeps me up at night. #MSWL

Replying to @Maria_Tureaud

I'm still waiting for the day for someone to write me a novel where the girl just says "fuck it" and walks away, head held high, and ready to take on the world by herself without a man. Just going to tag #mswl while I'm at it. Lol.

Watching The Host movie. I actually preferred it over twilight. And yeah, it has it's problems. So can someone write me a version of this with queer character and subtract all the misogyny? Bonus points for actual ace or demi rep. #mswl

I also need more graphic novels in my inbox. See my wishlist here for a better idea: storyoracle.wordpress.com/mswl/ #mswl

I'd also love more spooky/horror MG. Give me fantastic monsters, nature-based villains (like a forest or swamp), and something weird and twisty. I'll take it in YA too. #mswl

Also, I think I would be willing to accept high fantasy if it were a RomCom. The closest thing I can think to comp to this is Princess Bride. We need more. #romancelandia? #MSWL

I just finished Rick Riordan's recent Apollo book, and I would love an upper MG or YA or Adult book about Artemis/Diana. If YA or A, I would love this in the vein of Madeline Miller's Circe. MG would be in the vein of a RR Presents novel! #mswl

I'm looking over all of my authors pitches for subs and I comp them all to wither Maggie Stiefvater, Neil Gaiman, or Adam Silvera (or a combo of those three). So, that's my brand as an agent. If you can comp your book to one of these authors, please query me. #MSWL

I really want an adult book like Killing Eve. I don't normally rep suspense or thrillers, but I'd love something in speculative fiction the incorporates similar themes. I love how smart it is and how dark Villanelle is. Please give me more Villanelle characters. #MSWL

I'd love to see something in my inbox that is basically about Cabeswater from The Raven Cycle? #MSWL #TRC "The trees speak Latin."
