Had a great chat today while recording the podcast, about the lack of POC in YA novels centered around astrology.
I really love those books (ie: Summer of Supernovas), and would love to see that.
I'm closed for queries, but if you're writing a story like this, pitch me. #MSWL
Reading @AshWrites’ new book, and remembering @WriteinBK’s talk yesterday at the festival, I’m reminded how badly I want to read more YA friendship books.
If you’re writing one, query me next year when I’m open again. ❤️ #MSWL
I'm so hungry for a good YA sci-fi novel that gives me Mass Effect vibes. Where the character arcs and relationships are just as in-depth as the world building.
I feel like @RantingOwl @rhodabee and @SanguMandanna NAIL this with their books.
Send me something like that. #MSWL
Justina Ireland is Bad at Hiatus @justinairelandThesis: the reason Vampires haven’t made a reappearance in YA since Twilight is because the category sanitized them and removed the nuanced queerness that was the hallmark of vampire novels. And for vampires to rise again they will have to be queer.
Send. This. To. Me. #MSWL
Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersIf I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA
Someone send this to me RIGHT NOW. #MSWL
I'm not saying I have a brand, but @TheAdamSass' debut is the second book I'm pitching around that I'm comping to Last Seen Leaving by @MikalebRoehrig. The first was @tomryanauthor's (out next year!).
So. Hi yes, send me your inclusive YA thrillers. #MSWL
