Are there YA novels about the kids of anti-vaxxers? #MSWL

I'd love to see more thrillers from BIPOC authors. #MSWL

Ok fine I’d be into a new sexy vampire. I was super into True Blood. No shame in my game. #MSWL

Why aren't there more rom-com-y books set at summer shares? #MSWL

I'm craving things in my submissions that are joyful. Hard is everywhere. I want some light. #MSWL

I'd love a fun, punchy new procedural #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Jan 1

I’d love some more contemporary romance for the new year that celebrates odd duck leads. Characters for whom the lid and the pot are unusual sizes and shapes— that it really took serendipity to match them up. #MSWL

IT COULD BE WORSE is a rom-com title that should exist #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 15 Oct 2019

I’d love a rom-com about conversion or something similar a la Charlotte York Goldenblatt #mswl

A PB about envy or jealousy or wanting what someone else has #MSWL

I'd love more chapter book and MG nonfiction that is informative but mostly FUN #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 24 Sep 2019

I’d love to see some children’s books that play with form and function, especially for the wee ones. Something outside the box. #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 24 Sep 2019

There’s been discussion on this delightful medium about MG and periods, so write it and let it flow my way (the pun is there) #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 24 Sep 2019

The kind of light romantic women’s fiction that deserves the illustrated cover #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 22 Aug 2019

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

Here I stand, speaking my truest desire into the universe:


(don't forget the com, the com is important)
