When it comes to graphic novels (for all ages—MG, YA, or Adult), most of the submissions I receive are fantasy. I would love to work on more realistic stories. Maybe even some horror! #MSWL
Maria Vicente @msmariavicenteI made the mistake of starting The Vampire Diaries on Netflix (it's my first time watching the series) and now all I can think about is vampire lore. I am ready for a vampire resurgence.
To be more specific when it comes to books, my Young Adult vampire-themed #MSWL would look something like this: new twists on classic tropes; more interested in a badass character than "vamp with a soul"; the Pink Ladies or T-Birds... but vampires!
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteOverall, for YA, I'm looking for something ~FUN~. Not issue-driven. High concept. #MSWL
Nonfiction (for adult or children): geeky things, pop culture obsessions, science, history of a thing, lifestyle for millennials. #MSWL
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicente98. Adult Horror. Not something I’m looking for. #100Queries
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteI basically want to find my own version of Klaine (because I have absolutely no control over what I fangirl). #MSWL pic.twitter.com/OUGi4JVtqz
(Adult) Fiction with a touch of genre or magical realism. Books like Of Bees & Mist, Night Circus, Golem & the Jinni, & Night Film. #MSWL
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteFor me, MG & YA submissions truly need to be based on a concept I've never heard before & I'm not a fan of stereotypical characters. #MSWL
I'd love to find a super CREEPY fairytale retelling for Young Adult or Middle Grade. #MSWL
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteEmail inbox, we meet again. I can't say I missed you.
