For YA, I'm more turning to Historical, Contemporary, and Contemporary Romance. Super selective on Fantasy and Paranormal right now, though would still love to see concepts on witches or ghosts (and vamps if unique!)

Paranormal? Give me non-US creatures/legends. I love mermaids, but creepy/dark over Disney. I'm not a huge werewolf fan, and I'm only looking at vamps at the moment if they're unique or an awesome POC perspective. Nothing even remotely Twilight, please!
rachel strolle @recitrachelSince I’ve been rewatching Buffy, I realized I would love a YA anthology that features stories of characters who come into contact with the same vampire over hundreds of years.
One who hunts them, one who nearly dies because of them, one who loves them, one who kills them
Ummm yes please! Multi pov for the win! #mswl
I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.
Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL
Isabel Ibañez @IsabelWriter09Guys. An idea just hit me.
Starring Latinx vampires. Family obligations. Honor. Respect and upholding tradition before anything else.
and The Matriarch.
Who everyone calls Abuela.
This sounds AMAZING #MSWL
Sarah Guan @Sarah_GuanAll this chatter about a vampire (and werewolf) comeback. I have thoughts...
I like my supernatural, human-but-not characters. But I’d love some new takes—not the resurrecting of classics that worked the last time around. Let’s see new perspectives get a bite at that apple.
Okay, writers! THIS is what we mean when we say we're open to creatures with a new twist. New styles and storylines of vamps? I'm down for that #MSWL
