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 WANT YA ROM-COMs. #MSWL.

I really want a GREAT YA rom-com. Query me! #MSWL YES, YOU HEARD ME! I'd REALLY love a fantabulous YA rom-com. ❤😎🙂

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 · 27 Feb 2019

#MSWL: Currently, I am specifically looking for YA rom-coms, funny MG, adult suspense, and high concept Women's Fiction.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 19 Feb 2019

On the children's fiction side, I would love to see more contemporary YA fiction (the funnier the better), as well as graphic novels. No PBs for the time being. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 30 Oct 2018

These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 30 Aug 2018

I am still, and always, looking for smart, fun YA. I like it all: Rom coms, friendship stories, siblings stories. Well written and smart, make me laugh and cry. #MSWL.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 9 Jul 2018

I'm 27 pages in, & let me tell you: I've only known @laurenspieller as a FANTASTIC agent. Now, I get to know her as a writer, & she's got me hook, line, & sinker. My new #MSWL: Query me the kind of YA novel that Lauren would write. Go buy #YourDestinationIsOnTheLeft & learn how.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 23 May 2018

A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 16 Aug 2017

Recently, I have become obsessed with graphic novels. I would love to receive queries for YA, and MG, graphic novels! #MSWL
