Has there been a novel about a kid whose parents accidentally turned him into a meme? Like this kid? #MSWL

I'm also always hunting for thrillers. I tend to go for more traditional, governmental based thrillers than the psychological sort. #MSWL

I am looking for MG adventure that's grounded in reality. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Jun 11

I think it's time to #MSWL.

I want all the YA romance. Swoony and sweet, fun and flirty.

Has anyone written a ride share psychological thriller yet or are we just living in a collective one? #MSWL because it's my job, even though the real life scenario scares me to my bones.

I have recently fallen into the black hole of Wedding Shaming, and holy hell I want this book so bad. #MSWL

Last night at dinner we were discussing the idea of a MG book about a transgender child approaching a bar/bat mitzvah (or another religious gendered ceremony), one million percent #MSWL

Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny

I’ve been seeing lots of interesting requests on the timeline for different types of Jewish stories. I’d love to see all of them. Including maybe a story set in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. Sometimes religion isn’t the reason the fish is out of water. #mswl

I. Want. An. Influencer. Book.

Either NF about the dirty secrets of influencer culture or realistic fiction of the same. #MSWL
