6: Wholesome but quirky. This has been in my wheelhouse a LONG time, and I want more of it. You know slice of life anime? You know @_wholesomegames? That. In book form, or graphic novel. Adult only, please. Bonus for cottagecore aesthetics.

2: An evergreen desire: Books by Newfoundland authors that engage our culture, from ALL I ASK to FEBRUARY to OUR HOMESICK SONGS to NEW GIRL IN LITTLE COVE. Giv’er here, b’y!

A guest on the episode of @WestWingWeekly that I listened to this morning described the show as β€œaddictive, formative, and nostalgic.” That’s pretty much the exact formula I look for in my #MSWL #WritingCommunity

Relatedly, I would love a book on CTE and traumatic brain injury, contact sports, capitalism, identity, and culture from an expert on the subject and/or a contact sport athlete (I'm looking at you, #DerbyTwitter). #MSWL

#WritingCommunity: When folks wonder what kind of true crime I'm looking for, Killer Inside on Netflix is exactly it. This story weaves together questions about social norms, capitalism, culture, and deviation thoughtfully and with nuance. #MSWL

I was, frankly, horrified to encounter this book on Edelweiss+ this week, yet NYU Press is planning to print 15K of these babies next year. If you are writing the counterpoint to this anti-sex work fake news, I want it ASAP. #MSWL

Since I've been posting a lot about queries lately, I thought I'd thread a few of my #MSWL from over my time as an agent that are still relevant and make me excited to think about! As always, all my details can be found at...

I feel it warrants mentioning, since my partner and I are doing a West Wing re-watch and accompanying @WestWingWeekly listen, that I am a MASSIVE fan of Aaron Sorkin’s work. Do you write like him? If you do, I want to read it, regardless of what your project is. #MSWL

Watching @netflix Trial By Media, and would LOVE a @yourewrongabout-style deep dive about 1990s talk shows - the good, the bad, the political. #MSWL

11: Southern Gothic, and/or other regional twists on the genre. Comps: SING UNBURIED SING and the forthcoming SUMMER SONS. Neo-Gothic, like WHITE IS FOR WITCHING.

10: Feminist and/or queer romcoms, especially non-idealized depictions of polyamory and t4t romance. I don’t have comps for these! The closest I’ve come is the work of Xan West, parts of the TRANSCENDENT anthologies, and the gender diverse pronoun ed. of CAPRICIOUS.
