Still high on my #MSWL is (you guessed it!) middle grade. I'd especially love a really sweeping, high-stakes & action-packed fantasy/contemporary fantasy, and/or something with cozy-magic. And I'm always on the hunt for MG contemporary!

#MSWL - In MG, I will say I'd love, love to find a big middle grade series, something with heart & adventure. I'd love a sweeping MG fantasy-adventure, a new take on magical schools, or something high concept, high stakes, and FUN.

#MSWL - Middle Grade! I'd love to find more: contemporary, fantasy, adventure, series, standalone, you name it!

#MSWL -- I'm still on the hunt for middle grade, and would particularly love a fun middle grade series with action, adventure, and perhaps some magic or a dash (or heaping cupful) of the paranormal!

Continuing to put this out in the universe: my hope is to find a big MG series in the next few months: MG fantasy, adventure, paranormal, scifi, etc...something exciting & brimful of imagination and heart, with characters who are at once brave and vulnerable. #MSWL

I'm also searching for a MG series: something big & fun! It could be set in our world or a secondary world fantasy. I'd love it to be fun & perhaps funny. Ideally it has a high concept, but most important to me is that it has that page-turning quality & irresistible voice. #mswl

#mswl 2019: YA Paranormal: I want a big vampire or werewolf book or paranormal series that feels new and different and unlike what we've seen before. And YA SFF unlike anything we've seen before. (5/13)

#tenqueries takeaways: 1) I'm getting a lot of YA fantasy, but I still like it. 2) though these particular thrillers weren't right for me, I'm interested in character driven adult and YA suspense/thrillers and would be eager to find a big, irresistible one. #mswl

#MSWL - standout YA fantasy. I'm looking for jaw-dropping, cool world building and a new, exciting hook. petejknapp.com/post/155645279…

#MSWL - I want grounded fantasy a la SCORPIO RACES and THE DISAPPEARANCES by @EBain

#MSWL -- I still like to draw imagined cities & maps and always love fantasy that has cool, fresh & fully-realized worlds & magic systems.

#MSWL - #ownvoices YA & MG fantasy and science fiction that combine a killer concept with a ton of heart.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL - #ownvoices YA & MG-- both realistic & contemporary, but also eager to find more #ownvoices fantasy & speculative fiction.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 9 Jan 2017

(Very high on my) #MSWL - #ownvoices YA and MG fantasy, adventure, sci-fi, humor.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 30 Nov 2016

As always, MG is on my #mswl these days & all days. Everything from standalone contemporary and magical realism to big fantasy series.
