Every time I type “bbs” instead of “babies” I’m reminded how badly I want an early 90’s YA novel with a teen running a bulletin board system (BBS) on their computer.
“Who is the audience for dawn of the Internet niche YA-“
Shush! Gimme. #MSWL
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaIf you happen to be looking for YAs set in college, here’s a post I did last year with a bunch that also links to another post with a bunch, for a total of 16: barnesandnoble.com/blog/teen/10-n…
Ryan Ramkelawan @ryanramkelawanHave you ever accepted a query of an MS that wasn't in your wishlist or do you always preferred MS within your Wishlist only? #askLitAOC
Definitely. Agents use #MSWL for our specific requests and wishes (ie: I'm dying for a survivalist, plague-filled YA but... I want other stuff too), and always welcome surprises that are still within our interests. #askLitAOC
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksMy wife is watching her reality shows (right now Temptation Island is on), and I so want to read a literary novel with reality TV in it.
Like a novel that feels like the show UnReal, or reminds me of THE LAST ONE by Alexandra Oliva. Oof that was a perfect book. #MSWL
Oh! @BeautyBritches is watching @Andy Cohen’s show and he has my favorite YA novel of all time on his bookshelf!
Goodness I want to read a YA that makes me feel the way HERO did. What an amazing novel. #MSWL
Sangu Mandanna @SanguMandanna@DelilahSDawson I’d love to see more brown people! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a South Asian person on screen or page in Star Wars, other than Riz Ahmed! So a brown girl would be so cool! More mental illness rep would be great too.
This is also eternally on my #MSWL for YA and adult sci-fi and fantasy, please. Brown kids in space.
Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL
Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.
It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.
I'm on the lookout for more diverse and inclusive voices in YA across all genres.
My favorite books last year were by authors like @RantingOwl @justinaireland @theames and @AshWrites.
And I'm DESPERATE to find a sci-fi genre blending masterpiece like @erin_bowman's Contagion.
Good morning! It's March 1st and I'm officially open to queries again at @PSLiterary!
Here's my #MSWL on my website, and I'm going to tweet a little bit about what I'm looking for... let's go. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/01/3…
Pst. This Friday I open up to queries at @PSLiterary again.
I really want to find more genre-blending literary fiction, diverse + inclusive YA, quirky non-fiction, and lots more.
The full #MSWL is here! bit.ly/2GG1M7r
Hey writer friends!
I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!
Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…
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
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
