YA/Adult Assistant Agent at DMLA. Proud Hufflepuff. She/her. I smile a lot & make inappropriate jokes🦄💜 Half-hour pilot rec’d on Liz Alper’s staffing grid.
Jeremiah Tolbert @jeremiahtolbertI want more fantasy where the stakes are not the entire world, but just, like, this one street corner or house. One friendship. You don't have the shake the pillars of the earth to get my attention.
Personal character stakes are my JAM and what I die for in books. Forever #mswl
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguJust look at these two! This scene broke me, completely. pic.twitter.com/vnuSuoIk8V
Seriously y’all I’m a romantic and I know I rant and rave about thrillers and horrors on here. But I’m absolute shit at dating and the only romance I’m getting is in books. So send me happy queer ones, please! #mswl
Taylor Boo Barton 👻🦴 @taysalionHear me out, more slice of life books but like... scifi and fantasy. Spaceship families foraging in different systems to start a multi-planet inspired garden or an orc couple struggling to make peace with the one mean cow on their farm.
YES #mswl 😍👇🏽
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguYou ever notice they only killed the genuinely all-around nice kids in Skins? Why did Grace have to die when Matty’s lame ass was right there??
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguAnd another #mswl in the thriller space: I am horribly obsessed with true crime about cults, and family secrets that lead to deadly outcomes, and wild stuff like this. In Adult, especially, and in YA!
Adding to the #mswl because I think I botched a previous ask in this thread! I LOVE small town stories, (ESPECIALLY Adult romance!!) I just want them diverse and from a different voice! I also think of suburbs and small towns as completely different settings, sorry for confusion!
Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintemple@JordanPeele I'd sell my soul for a post-apocalyptic thriller/horror novel where the protagonist (or a POV character) breaks their glasses and has to survive without them #MSWL
OMG YES! HOW WOULD I SURVIVE!!! #mswl (I wouldn’t)
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursWhereas I love the suburbs (& small towns) so send to me. Maybe cause I grew up in the south in suburbs + country, but SO MUCH goes down in the suburbs and small towns.
Yes, I'm trash for stuff like Big Little Lies.
YA + Adult #mswl twitter.com/kianangu/statu…
Do not get me wrong, y’all, I LOVE small town stories as I’m from a poor one in upstate NY (Binghamton). Def send me those! #mswl
Kelly Quindlen @kellyquindlen@kianangu I’ll do my best because you ABSOLUTELY need that manuscript!! Like. Give us a clumsy, awkward black girl trying to flirt with another girl for the first time, à la Booksmart. PLEASE.
Kelly’s firgured out exactly the right wording for WHAT I AM DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR IN YA #mswl 👇🏽
Also, for the love of everything that’s holy, do not send me interracial friendship/romance narratives that overcome racism. That shit is played out and wack. Stories with characters and worlds navigating racism, homophobia, etc yes. The Help type shit? NO. Anti #mswl
Before I forget! I love historical romance, historical fantasies, alternate historical fantasies etc etc in YA and Adult. I’d LOVE an f/f in a period story! Like duchess debauchery or some shit. With WOC!!! Bc racism is a recent phenomenon. #mswl
