Stories with the entrenched characters arcs, cults, unreliable narrators, eeriness, and survival component of Yellowjackets. I am OBSESSED with this show to say the least and would love to see these elements in the YA thriller/horror space or the adult speculative space.
Reminder that I'm always on the lookout for dark academia books in YA & Adult especially by BIPOC authors!
Anything including a speculative element, solving a mystery, challenging the elitism of higher education, and a close knit group of friends are 👌
Some #MSWL things I've been craving in my inbox:
🌈 Queer MG, especially first crushes
💙 Found family dynamics
🌳 Small towns/isolated settings especially with a speculative element
💀 Southern Gothic
♣️ Stories that involve tarot/playing with fate
Megan Manzano 🇵🇷 🌸 ~ Closed to Queries @Megan_ManzanoI'll be closing to queries today at noon EST.
I will reopen in May and will be participating in DVPit.
If you have any of the following in MG or YA, I'd love to see it:
- Queer rep, especially a queer rom com
- Found families (bonus points if it's like Cheer on Netflix)
- Latinx voices
- Contemporary fantasy or spec fic
Something I haven't mentioned but am really on the hunt for: MIDDLE GRADE STORIES. Contemporary, speculative, fantastical - I want it all.
Especially if it's about friendship, odd hobbies, or beginning to figure out who you are.

I'd also like some speculative YA/MG where weird stuff happens and characters are forced together to figure it out.
Think The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman or The Bone Houses by Emily-Lloyd Jones.
