Some fun specific #MSWL things I'm looking for in YA:
A teen birder.
Teens really into snorkeling and diving.
Kids interning in national parks.
Teens really into rock climbing.
Give me niche, specific stories about passion projects, with all the unique terminology and language.
To get a better idea of the kind of projects I've worked on, visit my website and check out the books I've sold: bit.ly/2lqFs8v
And then, check out my whole wishlist, which I've written out here: bit.ly/2GG1M7r
Happy querying! Good luck! You've got this! #MSWL
I'm dying to find more accessible adult sci-fi and fantasy novels, along the lines of @ChuckWendig @pengshepherd @DelilahSDawson and @KatWithSword.
I've read everything they've written, and would love to find a SFF novel that makes me feel like The Book of M. #MSWL
I'm looking for genre-blending literary fiction, stories that give us something magical or speculative alongside prose that stirs up FEELINGS.
Perfect examples: The Night Circus by @erinmorgenstern, Here & Now & Then by @mikechenwriter, Station Eleven by @EmilyMandel. #MSWL
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaIf you love college-kid YA as much as I do, you’re gonna wanna check out these new/upcoming titles! barnesandnoble.com/blog/teen/5-ne… via @BNTeens
Floating a little wishlist item out to the universe, but I really want to see more kid-lit non-fiction in my inbox.
Young Adult and Middle Grade non-fiction, specifically. #MSWL
I’m so proud of the work @IamGMJohnson and @robin_stevenson are doing, and I’d love to see more.
A friend of mine told me how the folks at @GOGcom will travel far and wide to save source codes for old games, to make them available via their service and-
Someone send me a novel about a passionate gamer who travels the world to save a game that means something to them. #MSWL
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary"I'm dying to find a great book about a cult or a survivalist or a plague... maybe all of them in one?" @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksThere's always something so fun about genre novels that explore the regular people who live alongside the supernatural. Their frustrations.
IE: Patrick Ness' brilliant The Rest Of Us Just Live Here.
Like, there's a familiar in What We Do In the Shadows who is like 80+ years old, and is still saying "any day now."
Imagine a father figure in a YA novel who is a familiar, and his wildly frustrated family. Does the teen become a slayer?
Anyhow, send this to me someone. #MSWL
