Dear #MSWL universe, I want MG as good and heartfelt and eye opening as FRONT DESK.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 2 Oct 2018

#MSWL for commercial romance in start up culture. Or really any genre book based in start up culture.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

MG or YA about a kid with an unusual hobby or interest. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

What about a YA novel involving enmeshment and helicopter parenting? The good and the bad. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

I’m in the market for some LGBTQ MG with an honest and true voice. #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

I want hooky adult commercial romance so, so much (THE HATING GAME, THE WEDDING DATE, etc.) If it’s body inclusive, even better! #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 22 Aug 2018

Hi friends, I am in need of some LGBTQ+ MG. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 10 Aug 2018

I want a high concept, approachable rom-com so bad I can hardly stand it. #MSWL

I love rom-com women's fiction for my personal reading, so I'd love some on my list. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 1 Jun 2018

I don't often say this, but I'm in the mood for a big, fresh, lush, overwhelming fantasy. I want to be swept off my goddamn feet. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 17 May 2018

I'd love to see some MG/YA set in Israel. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 17 May 2018

#MSWL for a PB that deals with consent to touch at the 3-5 year old level

One of my weird obsessions is Wicked Tuna, a show about tuna fishermen. I’d love a novel about a career that is essentially a whole community lifestyle. See, eg. farming, fishing, etc. #MSWL
