Dana Murphy @manadurphymy only evermore take atm is that I would very much like someone to write me a 'tis the damn season novel about a celebrity returning to her small hometown during the liminal week between xmas and new years and making out with her townie ex. Big Sweet Home Alabama energy. #mswl
ok so I’ve come to the realization that this is the plot of the 2005 masterpiece Just Friends so I guess... #mswl: Just Friends, without the fatphobia and ideally, queer

Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaPublishing, *please* get some queer YA winter holiday novels ASAP. I am overrun by requests and my answers are sad!

please scare the shit out of me! #mswl
Dana Murphy @manadurphyif we've talked about books in the last five years, I have likely screamed about how much I love THE ROYAL WE. Now, you get to hear me scream about my rabid love for its sequel - a perfect, warm hug of a book that you absolutely must buy and read and talk to me about immediately. twitter.com/fuggirls/statu…
Diana M. Pho 📚 @writersyndromeI have some #MSWL asks floating that I'd love to see:
For young adult:
M. T. Anderson's Feed for the post-Instagram, post-TikTok generation
a YA version of The Wire (but with more funny bits and maybe an explosion or two).
a modern queer version of Ten Things I Hate about You
A MODERN QUEER VERSION OF TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU PLEASE GOD MY CROPS ARE DYING #mswl
Dana Chidiac @chidiaqianDoes there exist a YA heist/cozy mystery entitled Be Gay Do Crimes? If not, dibs.
(also every idea i have these days is actually just a meme #mswl)
rather than scream more, this is a good opportunity to say that I'd love to work on a book of deeply researched cultural criticism about taste, the value of art, and how both are historically and intrinsically wrapped up in the erasure of disenfranchised voices. #MSWL
Dana Murphy @manadurphysome #mswl hopes after losing a book I loved dearly (but ended up at a wonderful home!): give me your big hearted rom coms, give me your novels that feel like the best fan fiction, give me your F/F love stories!!!!, give me your happy endings with just enough angst in the middle.
refreshing a relevant thread on this beautiful #MSWL day:
Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobsonI am dying to find the next big speculative novel. Where is the next STATION ELEVEN? The next NEVER LET ME GO? 99% of editors I lunch with beg me to send them this! Authors, please send my way because my sub list is already ready to go!! 🙏 #mswl
Molly Cusick @molly_cusick#MSWL: #ownvoices #MG or #YA protagonists with chronic illness, pain, and/or a disability in a story not focused on that, and where no one dies--it's just a part of life. This kind of rep is important to me & I rarely see it in subs or published books.
YA only for me, but please yes this. If I had read more representations of chronic pain when I was younger I probably wouldn't have believed my pediatrician when he said "you're too young to have back problems". #MSWL
#mswl: give me your characters who don't usually get their love stories told, give me your most charming banter, give me your ideal OTP that you never got to see on screen, give me characters that look like you and your and me and my friends.
#mswl: give me your early/mid/late twenties coming of age, give me your 'how do I pay bills' and 'what do I do now', give me your friend families, give me your friendship is it's own type of glorious romance, give me your 'how can we grow up together'.
