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

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · Apr 22

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!…

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!

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · Jan 29

It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot:

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · 15 May 2018

Guys, I’d really love to see some more MG/YA Contemporaries in my inbox. #MSWL

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · 27 Apr 2018

Honestly if you have a YA LGBT contemporary book and you can comp it to RuPaul's Drag Race, I'm wondering why it's not already in my inbox. #MSWL

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · 25 Apr 2018

I have tons of client work today, so I'm going to be ducking in and out of #DVpit. If I <3 it, send me the first 50 pages:

Am always looking for diverse voices, so if I don't fave, still query me!! (and if you have an LGBT book in the 80s SEND ME! #MSWL)

BookEnders @NaomisLitPix @wensday95 @jamerrson @inthesestones and I are all debating vampires. And I am all about these creepy mermaids. I love vampires, but I want a creepy mermaid book more.

To be fair…My debate is me continually posting Buffy twirling a stake gifs. BUT if someone had a VERY unique take on vampires (I’m looking at you, Librarians with your descendants of Judas) I might be tempted. #MSWL

If anyone has a book about emoji use and the evolution/devolution of language back to cuneiform/hieroglyphs — I’d be interested in a proposal! #NonFiction #MSWL…
