Feeling a little down about the idea of working from home, and from the realization that I likely won't travel to Chicago next month and see my family. Agents, now would be a GREAT time to slide into my inbox with a heartwarming and cutesy picture book! #MSWL

Another #MSWL for 2020, off of a recent email from @JuniperJazzz, who comped her second book to an anime. Agents, if a book you represent feels tonally like an anime, I want to see it!

Thinking on my 2020 #MSWL and what I'd really like to see in my inbox are monstrous girls (maybe literally!) and the cinnamon rolls that love them

My dudes (because it is always the dude writers), it does not give a female main character β€œstrength” to be sexually assaulted for the sake of β€œcharacter building” in her first chapter. It just shows that you’re a hack. Consider this my anti-#MSWL.

I’m not much of a horror fan, but it just struck me that I’d love to see a YA along the lines of IT FOLLOWS. Something scary as hell that addresses teen sexuality (but is sex-positive, not moralizing) #mswl

Recently finished watching Love Alarm on Netlix and boooo hissss that ending but also #MSWL, I want a YA in that vein!

β€œThat vein” = exploring the way technology impacts our lives in an interesting new way. If your YA novel could be described as β€œlike Black Mirror but fluffy,” I want to see it.

Finally saw ABOUT TIME this weekend and so loved it. Agents, just a reminder that lightly speculative projects grounded in our world are EXTREMELY my jam. #MSWL

A #mswl for a future day: angry girls. Give me your righteous, angry girls, and let’s have them burn the world to the ground.

Olympics means Olympian-inspired #MSWL...I want a book about a teenage girl whose mom is her coach a la Mikaela Shiffrin and her mother. Fascinated by that dynamic.

A YA about a weird, immersive summer job & all the relationships that come out of it. Adventureland for teens. #MSWL

I just watched Little Witch Academia & it was my favorite. Badass lil witches learning about magic & how to be friends. MG, I think. #MSWL

A YA about a teen's devotion to a craft (a sport, an instrument, etc) and what that means for the other aspects of their life. #MSWL
