27. UNDEAD GIRL GANG by @ms_lilyanderson
I LOVE this book. It’s funny, it’s witchy, it has teeth—and it’s also about friendship 💜 The vibes are just perfect.
(Ahem #MSWL for anything comped to this book for those reasons)
Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl
Always looking for BIPOC writers!
If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
I'm dying (lols) to get a locked-room mystery #YA. I want high stakes, high energy, and I want to be guessing who did what and why and then be surprised that I was wrong. Send it if you've got it! #MSWL
Right now, I am NOT the right person for books with pregnancy, babies, pregnancy loss -- they would be pretty much automatic "no thank yous." If it's a TINY part of your story and you REALLY think I'll like it otherwise, pls include a content warning. #MSWL
Random things I love that will catch my eye: I'm an aerialist with a soft spot for circus/acrobat stories; amusement parks; beach towns; casinos/card games/Las Vegas; heists (women-led even better); hotels (teen Eloise, pls); Halloween; summer camp; sharks (is that weird?!) #MSWL
Contemporary WITCHES and covens. #YA and #MG, but keep it grounded in this world—think: The Craft or Practical Magic. I'm also on board with other #magicalrealism in styles of Laura Ruby, Anna-Marie McLemore, Emily X.R. Pan, Katrina Leno, Ibi Zoboi's American Street #MSWL
In line with the last tweet, please send your manuscripts about groups of friends, and bonus points if it happens over one night or one weekend. Something like a high school gen's The Big Chill energy. #MSWL
I've been an Agatha Christie obsessive since my blessed 6th grade teacher gave me "And Then There Were None," so PLEASE send me all your #YA and #MG Agatha-inspired #whodunnits like #trulydevious and the movie #knivesout. #MSWL
Caitlin White @caitforestellSO EXCITED to announce that I'm now open to queries at @EmeraldCityLit & will represent #YA and #MG fiction projects alongside agents @MandyHubbard and @LindaEpstein. I'm so grateful to them both for being such incredible mentors. #amquerying submit here:
To get an idea of what I'm looking for from #amquerying writers, check out this #MSWL thread I'll be updating throughout the day. #YA & #MG #fiction only. To start, I absolutely would love to see submissions by BIPoC and LGBTQ+ authors and writers with disabilities. #mswl
