beth phelan, here sometimes @beth_phelanI wanna troll @petejknapp by slapping my own mswl tag on his wishlist tweets 🤔😜
in seriousness, would love
-larger-than-life narrative voice
-MG fantasy series
-YA after high school about teens not going to college
-something that feels like a bottle episode
anxiety has been making it hard to focus very well, but i will say that in addition to the rest of my #MSWL i am also highly motivated to read more LOL MG fantasy adventure. have a few fantastic mss in my queue and would add some more… :)
Happy 2020! I’m back open to queries!! Send me...
LOL fantasy, contemporary tackling big topics, queer madcap ensemble adventures!
Weird crimes/myths, underdog fantasy, dark paranormal, experimental shit!
#querytip #mswl #subtip #amquerying
when i updated my website, i also updated my wishlist! please bookmark this for the new year, when i finally, at long last, reopen to queries! #mswl #amquerying #querytip
Catching up on subs and i notice i have excellent YA here, but not much MG! #mswl WHEN I REOPEN: I really want to work on more MG! Commercial or literary—give me your big series hooks, magic, light and fun contemporary, hopeful stories touching on tough topics, queer characters!!
if anyone has a MG or YA with a PROTAGONIST who has ADHD, i'd love to see it. in particular, a type that isn't the more commonly associated hyperactive but features the inattentiveness, procrastination, disorganized thoughts, etc. would be open to realistic or fantasy #MSWL
I want urban fantasy in MG too please! Series potential and big friend groups, family-focused, heartfelt—would love to fight some surprise tears reading a fun, sweeping adventure. #MSWL
For my MG, right now I really want magical adventure! Send me something fantastical and fun, with a great hook, and friendships that shine. Especially if there are any non-human magical characters incorporated in a fresh way. #MSWL
ICYMI, I’m open to queries! And last night, I requested my first full manuscript from slush at GZLA. These queries have been INCREDIBLE so far. Please keep them coming! For my #MSWL, check out this: bethphelan.com/wishlist
GIMME YOUR YA & MG!
beth phelan @beth_phelanWhile I wait for this lunch meeting to start: I want all the epic YA fantasy with intersectional diversity and #ownvoices. #MSWL
Also interested in weird urban legend inspired YA and MG. #MSWL
