and for my final YA wish (for now):
TRANS & NONBINARY CHARACTERS IN ANYTHING PLEASE
that's it
that's the tweet
#MSWL

YA paranormal:
I like brooding too-hot-for-their-own-good YA heroes in paranormal and I'm not apologizing
if you can make this m/m I would die for you
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · Sep 24

still on YA and also something I've asked for in the past and still have not seen it:
**a mermaid book that feels like a new concept and bonus points if it's queer, would also like some kind of new and inventive world-building with this, just WOW me please
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · Sep 24

still on YA and this is something I've been asking for repeatedly and still haven't gotten it...
**Sherlock Holmes, some kind of fresh take, any genre - but I would love a "young Sherlock" historical told from Irene Adler's POV and they fall in love while solving crimes
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · Sep 24

still on YA - contemporary YA--again, I'll look at ANYTHING here, but more specifically...
**rom-com - even better if it's gay
**something serious at its heart but with a witty, accessible voice like *cough*SickKidsinLovebyHannahMoskowitz*cough*

It's HERE! Find out what our editors are wishing for this October. #amwriting bit.ly/2pA9rtb pic.twitter.com/YzDn2SFB3o

My #mswl is so short this month that you might miss it, so I'll repeat it here:
"I really want to see more YA submissions with nonbinary lead characters. Any genre or type."
That's it. *grabby hands* Now give it to me.

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

still on YA:
a new take on a teen Sherlock Holmes
I would really like a book told through Irene Adler's POV
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

still on YA:
I want a queer mermaid book
I want a queer pirate book
both of those in one? yes that too
better yet - make it sci-fi - space pirates and space mermaids and they're all queer
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

still on YA:
*mystery/thrillers w/ atypical narrative structure and/or mixed media formats
*paranormal that feels fresh
*adventure-driven stories
*anything with a high-stakes plot
*fairytale retellings that feel fresh
*smart contemporary that makes me laugh and cry

Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lydi…
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 16 Feb 2018

here is my current #mswl:
YA romance - all genres
single title romance - all genres (see yesterday's tweets for what "single title" means)
category/series romance - contemp or historical
womens fiction with romance
NA romance - contemp or sci-fi
LGBTQ romance in any of the above

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 12 Jan 2018

a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 21 Jun 2017

a reminder, I still want this: a new twist on a YA Sherlock, any genre
must also have romance
#mswl

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 17 Jun 2017

also still seeking a romance with characters who are ballet dancers in YA or NA, doesn't have to be contemporary but contemp is ok #mswl

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 17 Jun 2017

I've seen some good YA dragon mss lately but they've all been "close but not quite" - still looking for that perfect one! #mswl 🔥🐉📚
