It may be all the Animal Planet I've been watching but I want a meet cute at an animal shelter/zoo or people accidentally meeting cause of their pets.

I would like to see more psychological thrillers in YA #mswl

Yes! Send me stories that bend reality and make me question the stability of the main character.

Or even better, a main character who is hiding information from the reader.

Okay, I think that's everything for now. If you have stories that fit these desires, please query me. #MSWL

Note the following:
I'm ONLY open to MG & YA.
Include both a query and synopsis.

As always, I want and need:

Queer stories
Stories from marginalized authors
Mental health rep
Sex positive rep

This thread keeps getting longer but I want YA with teens that make mistakes. Maybe they're learning. Maybe they did it on purpose. Maybe they have secrets, a fuel for revenge, unrequited feelings they're dealing with. Maybe they did what they needed to survive.

Also putting it out there that I'm 3000% weak for slow burn relationships (romantic and non-romantic) as well as best friends to lovers.

(Yes, I know I'm using a gif from a soul-murdering movie. fight me).

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I want strong villains/antagonists where we can track their turn.

Think Catra from She-Ra, Xifeng from Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, Walter White from Breaking Bad.

Always a sucker for misfit groups in MG or YA. Think ride or die friends, friends who are together because they're all they have, people pushed into situations where they realize, hey, we actually need each other.

#MSWL

If you comp Stranger Things, I may die.

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I want/need/love steampunk, cyberpunk, and virtual reality. Do you have AIs? Technology going wrong? Futuristic cities? A game that gets a little too lifelike?

Think Warcross by Marie Lu, Tarnished are the Stars by Rosiee Thor or Final Fantasy 7.

#MSWL

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I'd love a witch book! Witches in contemporary settings. Witches in their own world. Maybe a witch who doesn't want their powers anymore. A whole clan of witches ready to burn down the world.

#MSWL

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I'd love a survivalist horroresque novel or survivalist dystopian YA. Think Wilder Girls by Rory Power! Give me off the grid islands, plagues, a trip gone gone wrong, the end that begins as a whisper.

#MSWL

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I really NEED a YA alchemy book. Think in the vein of Fullmetal Alchemist. Give me a conflicted MC or a world where the laws of alchemy are being challenged or where magic comes at devastating price.

#MSWL

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I'd really love some speculative contemporary YA or MG. Creepy woods. Elemental powers. Out of body experiences. Alternative worlds.

#MSWL

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

Happy #MSWL day! I'll be posting some highly desired manuscripts in this thread.

The first? Give me Fire Emblem with angst and queerness and high court stakes.

Meg-O'-Lantern 🎃 @Megan_Manzano · Sep 11

I'm really craving friendship stories. The friends that can speak without words. The cheerleader friends. The group who became friends because they were outsiders. The friends who are fixing their relationship.

Give me sweet but also break my heart??
