1) Heard fellow Hoosier Buttigieg say something today that I completely relate to: “I didn’t realize how Midwestern I was until I left the Midwest.” First moving South at 18 And then I didn’t realize how very American I was til I saved every dollar I earned to go to Paris at 21.

2) It got me thinking about why I love travel stories or fish out of water stories or stories of cultures different from my own, particularly in the young adult space. Travel stretches you in ways you can’t anticipate. #MSWL But at heart, still a midwestern girl here in NYC 😉

I just watched that netflix show about pirates... entertaining, but my point is... WHY have I never read a book about Ching Shih before?? I've seen nonfic, but this is begging to be a novel in a talented author's hands. This woman's story is incredible! #MSWL #HistoricalFiction

I'd love a novel of the female code breakers of WWII. I've seen non-fic, but I haven't yet found it in upmarket #WomensFiction and I can't help but devour new WWII stories--I'm automatically picking up that book 📚 #MSWL #historical

I'm eagerly looking for an #ownvoices immigration story. #MSWL

I've been seeing a lot of queries with sophisticated tinges of horror (both YA and adult) and I am Loving it right now! Especially the Gothic horror. Perfect fall reading... #MSWL

I can't wait to meet the talented Southern writers at #MoonlightandMagnolias #MMConference19 this weekend in ATL, my old stomping grounds. I'll be looking for mystery, historical, women's fic, and of course a lil romance! I love a determined character full of grit & grace #MSWL

#MSWL Transitioning from high school to early college years with a lot of girl friendships, awkwardness, and tons of humor. I want to feel like I'm reading a YA Pitch Perfect with Anna Kendrick's voice in my head.

High on my #MSWL right now: Sophisticated, twisty (adult) thrillers and suspense! I want secrets galore! I want to be surprised. Bonus points for a strong sense of place.

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · 2 Aug 2019

I just got pitched a novel with a hidden trunk in the attic and family secrets galore! Somebody knows my #MSWL 😄😉

#MSWL I’m very interested in projects from active duty military, veterans, and their family members. I want to hear your unique story! My brother suffers PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan and I have a soft spot for this underrepresented group of brave men and women.

The holiday weekend meant I finally got to dive into Becoming Mrs. Lewis by @pcalhenry Her writing is so lovely and the story has me glued to the page 📖 #inboxgoals 😉 #mswl

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · 23 May 2019

Every time I hear @kanebrown "What Ifs" I think how much I want this song in book form. I'm obsessed. All that swoony angst brings out my inner 17-year-old. #MSWL 😍

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · 31 Jan 2019

YA Friendship stories. Girls supporting girls without competition, judgement, or stereotypical high school jealousy (I'm tired of seeing the cliche mean cheerleaders). I'm still buds with all my high school girlfriends. I'd love to see more of this in YA #mswl #YAlit

I’m watching the Ted Bundy documentary and whoa—am I a total creep for loving hearing what’s inside the mind of a killer? #MSWL 🤯💀

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · 24 Jan 2019

Recently finished this. Her characters are always so well drawn, so complex and full. #MSWL I want more Tana French in my inbox 😉
