#MSWL - Anything that feels high concept and cinematic in YA, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary with a speculative twist. Stories with big “what if” premises.

#MSWL - Smart, commercial YA thrillers & mysteries! Think Tiffany Jackson, Karen McManus, E. Lockhart. Also, YA horror! I’d love something like MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, with a good speculative twist.

I also love speculative, especially for MG & would love to find something for fans of the AMULET series or something like THE WITCH BOY. And a recent fav was FAKE BLOOD. #mswl

Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.

#MSWL - in YA, I'd love something really fun and soapy, maybe with a speculative twist, maybe not.

I’d also LOVE a cool, cinematic spec novel or contained sci-fi. Something catchy, like “TITANIC but in a newly opened underwater resort” or FAST & FURIOUS meets I don’t know what... Basically, I love when the concept has a *wow* factor. #mswl

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

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL - YA novels that are realistic -- and not; grounded YA with some fantastic or speculative element. petejknapp.com/post/155723172… #amquerying

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 18 Mar 2016

Always at the top of my #mswl - lyrical and literary novels with magical or speculative twists. Stories that are original and haunting.

I'm excited to find some commercial adult fiction this year, especially speculative suspense and thrillers. petejknapp.com/post/128934360… #mswl
