My list is getting a bit YA fantasy heavy. I would love to see more MG fantasy/horror, YA contemporary, and MG and YA graphic novels. #MSWL.

Having sold the MG graphic novel SORT OF SUPER by #Teamtriada's @ericgapstur with Brent in a six-figure pre-empt has definitely whet my whistle. I would love to see more author/illustrator MG and YA #graphicnovels in my Inbox. #MSWL

#MSWL: Gothic. Give me YA, Adult, anything that speaks to the atmosphere of du Maurier, Jackson, Hill, Purcell, or Waters. Looking for the perfect cross between feminine and terrifying.

Brian Wask @BrianWask

@UweStenderPhD Do you want to know how the story ends?
Replying to @BrianWask

In a query, no. In a synopsis, yes. But I never request a synopsis so please take my advice with a grain, or several grains, of salt.

Teresa @TeresaTraver1

@UweStenderPhD Is getting the query letter perfect as important as people say, or do first pages matter more?
Replying to @TeresaTraver1

It depends on the agent. If you wrote a lousy query letter to me, I would likely pass instantly, & not look further. If I love your query, I will ask for the full. & then, I need to love whatever I am reading to keep reading. Other agents, incl. at Triada US, do it differently.

Kristi Tragethon IS in FULL teacher mode! @KristiTragethon

@UweStenderPhD #askagent How long do you (on average) take to review a full manuscript? And if you’re on the fence about it...do you put it aside of awhile?
Replying to @KristiTragethon

That depends. Sadly, these days it can take me months, and other times, days. It depends on how busy/distracted/focused I am both professionally and personally. My average is probably 7 or 8 weeks. Sometimes I wonder if I should offer or request an R&R. That could delay things.

In the last couple of months, I struck out twice when offering on fun contemporaries. One a YA rom-com, the other an adorable, witty, MG. So, #MSWL want: fun contemporaries with a great hook, super strong writing, & loveable protagonists, even when they are a bit complicated.

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.
