Putting out the #MSWL for good horror - haven't gotten too many horror queries as of late and would love to see that remedied.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 27 Apr 2017

To all the folks in the #ESPNLayoffs club...if any of you decide to try your hand at writing a book, hope you'll send it my way. #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 25 Apr 2017

I'm going to miss much of #DVPit, so feel free to send any MG/YA that's horror, mystery/thriller, historical, sports, contemporary. #MSWL

History In Pictures @HistoryInPix

Tattoo parlor in the 1920's

Not sure if there's a book in this or not...but I'm sure the American tattoo parlor has a pretty cool history. #MSWL

I know there's a lot of stuff out there already...but I'd love to represent the definitive work on Laurel & Hardy. #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 10 Mar 2017

I wonder if there's a book somewhere amid all of this Buffy the Vampire Slayer madness. Maybe Buffy and the rise of the female badass? #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 9 Mar 2017

I also bet there's a really fun MG novel revolving around some kind of Girl Scout cookie heist out there somewhere. #MSWL

#MSWL A book about the men commissioned as flame throwers during WWII.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 3 Feb 2017

Is there a biography of Fred Gwynne out there anywhere? #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 3 Feb 2017

I hope it doesn't come across as insensitive to put out a #MSWL for what really happened in Yemen recently - but that story needs to be told

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 15 Dec 2016

And since it's the holidays...may as well send out another #MSWL for a nonfiction book on the history of human sacrifce.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 26 Nov 2016

#MSWL Naval battles, shipwrecks, survival at sea, anything badass that happens on the ocean

A Lounge Singer would make a great main character for a gritty mystery. #MSWL
