Yes, yes, heists are AMAZING. But what about a thief who steals from the ACTUAL thieves and then sneaks into the museums or homes or whatever to return the items, but doesn't want notoriety? Then is caught and must help police to clear her own name. Maaaaybe? #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Oo! And what about a YA (Or adult, really) where it's f/f and they're forced to work on a painting together to win scholarship money or startup money. But they hate each other and then end up having a paint fight šŸ˜ enemies to lovers! #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Anyone thought of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, but from the woman he left behind's perspective? And she's the badass getting into sword fights and proving his innocence? #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Also really craving a beautiful Historical Fantasy with worldbuilding as solid as Carnival Row (but without Fae). Gotta have that captivating voice and I'd love to see some court intrigue thrown in there #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Disclaimer: I'm not a great fit for Fae/Fairie, Elves, or Werewolves. Just not my cup of tea (probably odd ogres or trolls in there, too). #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

And again, I'm calling for mermaids! Creepy, creature mermaids and sirens. Darkness. I'm not talking Disney here. I wanna see the grit and the turmoil from the beings sailors once feared #MSWL

Still looking for an Adult contemporary with a therapy group for those who fake being kidnapped by aliens... only to have one member disappear and spark conspiracies šŸ˜‰ if y'all don't write it, I might have to myself #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Can I please have modern witches? I mean, witches who are living their lives, drinking tea, wearing certain gemstones for certain qualities, hanging herbs in the kitchen, concocting healing spells and ones that help you not fall asleep in exams. Modernize! #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

I want Urban Fantasy with myths and legends based far out of the usual commercial scope. Give me South American creatures, the Philippines, Eastern Island, New Zealand. What's the boogeyman there? I want to know! #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.

Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Still dying to find a Lost Boy book about one of them after they escape Neverland and are forced to live in London.

Also still dying to find casts like FireFly or Buffy with banter and sass and adventures. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

For adult, I'd love a contemporary romance with humor. Maybe not full out Bridget Jones, but something that takes realistic elements and makes us giggle at them. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Definitely always on the lookout for contemporary. I want all the feels, the angst. In YA, I really want mental health focus on LGBTQ+. DEFF want LGBTQ+ middle grade crushes! GIMME! #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Hell yes if those historicals are feminist, LGBTQ+, POC. Definitely interested in non-American and non-UK settings. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Currently on a HUGE hunt for historical! Any age. I want lesser known historic events and locations. I want MG trusted to become enmeshed in important/involved moments. I want YA and Adult to show rebellion or championing against the common law. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

I LOVE Fantasy (Urban, Contemporary, Epic, the whole wazoo). Give me lush worlds, fabulous magic systems, diverse and deep cultures. I'd love to see these also grappling with environmental issues or disability/mental health #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

Ok, real quick #MSWL thread that I'm squeezing in today.

Basics: Upper MG, YA, Adult.

DO NOT send me PBs, Short Stories, Chapter Books, Nonfiction, Thriller/Mystery/Suspense, or Erotica
