#MSWL - #YA: Either set in the 1950s or the 1970s/1980s: a historical YA that deals with being queer in a time period where it wasn't safe to be out of the closet. Deal with the tough subjects and please break me before I get to the end.

#MSWL - #YA: I'd love a great mystery or something set in one location a la CLUE or MURDER BY DEATH (contemporary or unique period, please! Not SFF). A whodunit where everyone is the suspect and bonus points for smart humor!

#MSWL - #NF: yes, you heard me. Non-Fiction. :^) I'm looking for musical theatre analysis or biographies. Honestly, I'd love to collaborate with someone who works on Broadway in some manner on a project!

#MSWL - #YA: I am STILL waiting for my contemporary re-telling of COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO.

#MSWL - #YA: I've become so much pickier in terms of genre fiction because I want to see something new. Give me a new twist on court intrigue or "chosen" ones. More contemporary fantasies/magical realism. Retellings of new/different stories.

#MSWL - #YA: I can never have too many queer rom-coms on my list. Ever. I want more than just boy-meets-boy or girl-meets-girl, however. The ones I am drawn to are when there's so much heart and subplots with more than just the core romance.

#MSWL - #MG: I'm still on the hunt for a MG that's like 'In a Heartbeat'. I want that queer first-crush book. Figuring out who your MC is as a person, be it who they "like" or if their birth gender isn't what they truly are. Your challenge: make me cry.

#MSWL - #MG: I will always want more creepy AF middle grade. Always and forever. Give me lyrical voices and atmosphere for *days* and I will love you. Ghost stories with a twist. Creepy carnivals. Alternate worlds a la Coraline. GIMME GIMME PLZ.

#MSWL - #PB: Looking for irresistible voice and books that either make me laugh out loud (no potty humor though!) or tug at the heart strings. Always want to see diverse perspectives, too!

Hey Authors in the Query-Trenches! You know what I want to see more of in my inbox? LGBT rom-coms set in boarding schools. And... go. #MSWL

It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…

Where are my dark and creepy MG novels in my inbox? Come on guys. I need them all. Comp it to CORALINE and I’ll be a happy camper. Dream worlds, carnivals. Make it dark and make it lyrical. #mswl

I know I'm SO behind the times falling in love with this show -- but after getting to do a production of #NextToNormal last week, I'd kill for a YA version of the book dealing with mental health issues. #MSWL

Honestly, as a former costumer and a cosplayer— I’d read the hell out of this. Bonus points if it’s a YA. #MSWL

@inthesestones I see you're open to picture books. Yay! Do you have PB preferences you can share? Your MSWL is detailed for MG and YA, but not PBs. Thanks so much.

This is hard—I'm still figuring out what really trips my trigger. #AntiMSWL, no rhyming books. On the #MSWL side: I love message-centric that don't come across as preachy. Laugh-out-loud funny is always a want. I'd kill for my own JACK (NOT JACKIE) or something with LGBT-themes!
