So let's talk graphic novel #MSWL ahead of me opening on 6/1. Below are just a small sample of some of my talented clients and their work.

For graphic novels, art is such a big part of it for me. pic.twitter.com/nePULFddzM

But you don't have to be an illustrator to give me graphic novels. I also love script only graphic novels #MSWL.

One thing I have noticed about my taste is I read for escape. I lean towards fantasy, or contemporary-elevated (which is not my regular every day).

So #MSWL ahead of reopening on Monday 6/1: contemporary Romances and rom-coms! I have been thinking about the manuscripts I have read lately and loved or the books I have read lately and loved, and this was what they all had in common: they were all romantic books. So gimme!!

Adding new #MSWL #VisualMSWL to my Pinterest board that reflect some of the contemporary vibes I want:

And finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.

And Ren Faire contemporary.

And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.

16. Also "We Are Never Getting Back Together" and "Love You Like Love Song" are totally two songs that should be played back to back over and over for inspiration on a contemporary about a couple who just can't seem to get their timing right. #MSWL

10. Also, reminder from my most epic Ren Faire trip: I kind of want a contemporary about working at a Ren Faire and the behind the drama. @angelinearly tweeted about feuds the other day, and I was curious about the hook-ups. So I feel like it could be a good mashup #MSWL.

In the spirit of @jamerrson doing an MSWL, I'm going to chime with one, too!

I am really into the song BURY A FRIEND and would love a YA that has that atmospheric, psychological feeling in contemporary #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 16 Oct 2018

I will also put out in the universe that I want a great contemporary romance #MSWL #YA

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 17 Aug 2018

Contemporary fiction is something I am always looking for. But hooky contemporary fiction. #MSWL

Since I am feeling sleep deprived, let's do a #MSWL thread

So my list priorities are as follows:

-YA/MG Historical Fiction
-YA Fantasy
- YA Romance
-YA and MG Graphic Novels
-MG Narrative Non-fiction
-YA and MG Contemporary Fiction

#MSWL

I definitely need more contemporary YA, but I am looking for contemporary that is not the every day setting. Elevate it and allow me to escape for my every day. #MSWL
