I was just thinking about the scene in Goonies where they knock over the water cooler and find the hidden door in the fireplace. I would love to find a book that has that same level of adventure. +Booby traps! +Voice! +Diverse rep -Problematic jokes and stereotypes. #MSWL

I would love to find a teen girl super spy/action adventure. Something that can be pitched as Kim Possible meets Kingsman. Or in the vein of Kiki Strike (which I haven’t read, admittedly). #MSWL

I like to call this list the T. S. Ferguson Is Good at His Job list: bookriot.com/2019/02/13/div… @TeeEss @InkyardPress

LOL! I try. But yes, go read my books (PULP and ALL OUT) and the others on this list! Also, would love to find more POC and intersectional #OwnVoices historical fiction. #mswl

I found this old-ass copy of TRUE GRIT on the takeshelf at work a while ago and finally started reading it. Now I kinda want to acquire a YA western! It'd be a tough sell prob, but might be cool. #MSWL

This story just CONSUMED me! I couldn't stop reading! I needed to know about Emil and Xaver! I'm sobbing! I would love to publish a story like this some day, but probably fictional inspired by real people! Code Name Verity with gay men and WWI! I'm a wreck right now! #MSWL!

A story (metaphorical or realistic) about the problems inherent in stan culture and tying your entire identity to art or an artist you love to the point where you'll blindly defend it/them w/o rational thought. #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 27 Sep 2018

More QPOC books and authors please! Contemporary, historical and/or fantasy! #mswl

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 28 Jul 2018

I'd love to find some sort of story about feuding families. More Hatfields & McCoys though, not so much Romeo & Juliet. #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 19 Jul 2018

If somebody wanted to write an Utena-style pseudo-contemporary diverse fantasy with sword-fighting, butch and femme queer girls, and colorful, floral imagery, and then have their agent sub it to me, I wouldn't be upset. I'm just sayin'. #MSWL

Actually, this whole vague #MSWL is fun. Let's do more. twitter.com/LZats/status/8…

Replying to @LZats

A horror that makes you shiver and panic like you did when your siblings locked you in the basement as a kid. #MSWL

Reading/editing ALL OUT is making me realize how desperately I need more gay boy YA in my life. Esp w/ lusty parts #MSWL @SaundraMitchell

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 23 Feb 2017

Somebody posted this on a friend's FB page and now I want it written as a YA novel! #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 23 Feb 2017

Today seems a good day to re-emphasize that I'd love to acquire #OwnVoices trans stories across any of the genres I'm acquiring in. #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 13 Sep 2016

My #MSWL hasn't changed, but what I want most of all is time to read what's already on my plate. I'll have more for the next #MSWL Day tho.
