Have I mentioned how much I want to represent Graphic Novels? I'm open to MG and YA! Especially diverse voices and stories. #mswl.

A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

Does anyone write YA Historical without magical elements? Because I would LOVE to see more of that in my box. #amwriting #amquerying #MSWL

One of my favorite thrillers is Butterfly Effect (dont @ me!). And I'd love to have a YA with similar themes. Of course, I'd love any YA/NA psychological thrillers. #mswl

Also, does anyone have a YA historical horror MS? Please query me. All the better if it's gothic and queer. #MSWL

SUPER SPECIFIC HORROR IDEA. Has anyone ever seen Thirteen Ghosts? A super cheesy movie about people that get stuck in a house full of 13 serial killer ghosts. I LOVE IT. I want a YA based on it. #mswl

Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE stories that have a group of 4 or more characters going on adventures, figuring out problems, or trying to save the world. MG or YA, but give me stories like STAND BY ME, SANDLOT, STRANGER THINGS. #mswl

Speaking of fantasy. I want a story about a character based off Nico di Angelo from the Percy Jackson universe. I love that little tragic-son-of-hades boy. To be more specific, here is a prompt for you: What if Nico was Arya Stark? YA or MG works for me! #mswl

Asking again, #mswl
I'd love to see something where the two protags are trying to bump up their TV ratings or their popularity rating (in YA or adult) and start fake dating and post cute pictures if themselves on insta. Only to actually fall in love!
Make it queer.

Okay, time for my first #mswl thread. 🎇😍

#amquerying, #writingcommunity, and maybe those looking for inspiration in your writing journey. pic.twitter.com/YmbneI7ThJ

I desperately want a really well done polyamorous YA romance. I would prefer this come from an #ownvoices author because polyamory isn't just an "open relationship" and it's not cheating. #mswl

I will also take poly romance for NA and Adult too. ;-)
