Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
My goodness. I'm closed to queries, but if you've written this book, ignore that and send this to me immediately. #MSWL
Melissa @melissasee@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?
When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL
Goodness do jukebox musicals bring me so much joy.
Where's my YA novel about one? Teen decides to put on a jukebox musical to get the attention of estranged rockstar parent? Hijinx and music ensue.
Written in the voice of @SarahNSmetana? Thanks. #MSWL
Miranda Kenneally 📚🏋️♀️🍹🏈🐕🐈😘 @MirandaKennealyJust reading about #WalkOutToVote and I'm suddenly desperate to read a YA novel about characters who ditch school to go vote. And then maybe end up on life changing road trip and fall in love? bit.ly/walkout116
Send this to me. #MSWL
60 Second Docs @60SecDocsHumans weren't meant to fly, but @Crooked_Feather has other ideas. pic.twitter.com/Vh7CncMGq1
Send me the YA novel about a robotics-loving teen who makes wings on Etsy... and she accidentally makes a set that can fly.
Hijinks ensue. #MSWL
Where is the non-fiction writer / relationships expert working on a book about making friends as an adult when you're over 30?
Send me your manuscript proposal. For personal and literary agent reasons. I'm both lonely AND see the value in a book like this! #MSWL
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
