Not a huge fan of a damsel in distress (unless she eventually changes), so please send me all your strongest heroines! #MSWL #amagenting #YA #MG

Though I do love fantasy, I don't usually go for stories that are heavily focused on action (huge battles, wars, etc). If there is any political upheaval going on, I need excellent character development and voice to balance out any action. #MSWL #YA #MG #amagenting #amreading

Would love to see a reimagining of the modern day royals. Princess submissions are always welcome! #MSWL #YA #MG #amagenting #amreading

Please send me your best #YA manuscripts with some romance! And please don’t make the two characters fall in love right away...I need some tension first. #MSWL #amagenting #amreading

Was rewatching Apocalypto last night and got a huge desire to see a #YA portrayal of Mayan Civilization in my inbox. Is that possible? Someone please send! #MSWL #amagenting #amreading

Would love to see more contemporary #YA in my inbox in general! #MSWL #amagenting #amreading

In the spirit of Halloween, I'd love to get more horror submissions! But I can't stress how important it is to have the overall tone and voice of your manuscript stay creepy throughout the entire story--from start to finish. #MSWL #YA #MG

A YA version of Broken by lovelytheband (the song, not necessarily the music video)! youtu.be/qr1-WpWOUk8 #MSWL

Would love to see more YA romcoms in my inbox! Give me what you've got 🙏 #MSWL

Really kind of sad I never got to go to summer camp as a kid--would love to get some submissions set at a camp so that I can at least pretend I did! #kidlit #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 21 Sep 2018

A YA or MG twist-y game in the vein of CARAVAL, please! #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 13 Sep 2018

Would love to find a compelling YA space opera! The setting, as well as everything that comes with it, has to be well researched. #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 12 Sep 2018

Most importantly, whatever ya or mg story it may be, a unique voice and complex characters will instantly draw me in. Ultimate #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 12 Sep 2018

Creepy #MG and #YA horror! Voice is everything. #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 12 Sep 2018

Is it possible to get a #YA version of Breaking Bad? Best character development by far. #MSWL

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 12 Sep 2018

Though I do like dark, I also like the opposite side of the spectrum. Sassy self-deprecating characters with humor are huge on my #MSWL. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging is gold.

Masha Gunic @masha_gunic · 12 Sep 2018

A solid #YA or #MG mystery is everything. I really don't want to see the ending coming! But even with a good twist, it HAS to be believable. #MSWL
