I adore Adult Fantasy like THE ROOK and HENCH. Funny, trope twisting, smart, and that shows the mundane side of something fantastic and the fantastic side of something mundane. I’d love to see more of it in my inbox. #mswl

And finally...

5. MG with a Big Hook! I like funny books and magical books and sad books and creepy books. In other words, I'm open to any genre, as long as it has a fun, snappy premise that'll get a kid's attention!

Adult Contemporary/Romance Writers! I would like to sign a project that reads like Bridget Jones/Crazy Rich Asians/The Hating GAme--funny, fast paced, and clued in to social questions. #MSWL

The Mary Sue @TheMarySue

"What We Do In the Shadows" Is Officially Coming to the United States With Series Order at FX themarysue.com/what-we-do-in-… pic.twitter.com/CFi3fqTPz2

I want a vampire book that reads like this show. Funny, sweet, and from the POV of the vampire, *not the victim*--or at least not the victim alone. Another great example is BLOOD SUCKING FIENDS: A LOVE STORY by Christopher Moore. #MSWL

I *need* a funny YA or Adult project. Not a humor book, just something wry, clever, or better yet--hilarious! #MSWL

I’d like to find a YA that shows what it’s like finding love after heartbreak. Bonus points if it’s funny. #MSWL

#MSWL: funny YA set in a Medieval Times-like restaurant. Give me performer hierarchy drama, kitchen secrets, and a love story to swoon over.
