I live for LOTS of exercise, dogs, music, books, bingeworthy TV, Fussball, conversations with smart people, the surf, and a good Gin and Tonic.

I really want a GREAT YA rom-com. Query me! #MSWL YES, YOU HEARD ME! I'd REALLY love a fantabulous YA rom-com. β€πŸ˜ŽπŸ™‚

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Apr 9

The last five days of my life were mostly drama and fear, but things are looking up. I still need cheering up, nonetheless, so my #MSWL for now is: YA friendship stories, YA romance, YA rom coms, YA boarding school books, YA hijinks, YA "All American" show TV like soap opera.

Deliver me LGBT+ YA stories that leave the reader joyful. Plots that are fun, invigorating, and clever. I'd love to read an LGBT love or friendship story that's incredibly well written and makes me feel HAPPY afterward. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 24 Sep 2019

I'd love to see supernatural & ghost stories, adult or YA. Bring on the eery, haunting, or Gothic. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 16 May 2019

If I distilled my research properly, then teens want contemporary YA with friendship stories and diverse protagonists, but de-emphazing "issue books." #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 15 May 2019

College YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 15 May 2019

Looking for authentic k-pop inspired fiction. To my shame that would not have occurred to me at all, but it makes complete sense. K-pop is HUGELY popular ALL over the world, so logically teens want to read authentic k-pop inspired fiction. Send it to me. #MSWL.

@UweStenderPhD Hi! What's your typical request rate (per 1000 queries received, say)? Are you super selective up front or do you roll the dice a lot?
Thanks!

Replying to @TheComingOfGose

I am very selective, but...good question! I don't keep stats, but my gut feeling....Hmmm, I may request somewhere between 15 to 50 manuscripts per thousand queries.

@UweStenderPhD Why might an agent request a partial instead of a full?

Replying to @21timetraveler

I don't know. You're asking the wrong person. If *I* am interested in something, I request the full. Maybe it comes from the time when there was no email to avoid printing and receiving all the paper?!? It's email, if I like it, I read on, if I don't, I pass, why not the full?!?
