In my recent addiction to food-focused travel TV, I've learned a bit about Queen of Creole Cuisine Leah Chase and how she literally fed the '60s civil rights movement and wow what a queen indeed. Could be an awesome PB bio subject...👀 #MSWL
I would kill to read a heady literary mystery about a character who slowly loses it in a shoddily disguised replica of the Love Island villa that turns increasingly hellish. Does this exist? Can someone write it? #mswl
Amy Tintera @amytinteraAre there rom coms set in fantasy worlds? YA or adult? Just like, cute funny romances set in a secondary world. Does anyone besides me want this?
God, yes please!!! #MSWL
Jennifer Willis @Jennife58519983@sarahrmccabe @jeanmare_gag Definitely giving off vibes. Erased VHS tapes that don't play but you hear voices through the screen.Creepy doll from the closet that just says momma, momma. Owner rushes downstairs to put the box outdoors. And doll keeps saying momma in a deep demon voice.Closet has more dolls😈
I've mostly been reading adult in my spare time, but I've recently read and loved:
✔️Final Girls Support Group
✔️The Book of Accidents
✔️Tokyo Ever After
✔️Dial A for Aunties
✔️One Last Stop
✔️The Echo Wife
Agent pals! I am hungry for new, exciting acquisitions. I'm actively looking for... #MSWL
✨ horror, horror, HORROR. MG & YA. Campy, psychological, gothic, you name it. Yes I just watched the #FearStreet trilogy and loved it!
✨ Twisty YA thrillers with diverse casts
I'm also acquiring the select picture book! I'm looking for heartfelt stories about marginalized folks' experiences, nonfiction bios, and laugh-out-loud pbs with sneaky adult humor.
- BIPOC rom-coms, friend-coms, and coming-of-age stories not exclusively centered around POC trauma
- Sweeping historical fiction / magical realism, especially stories about non-white history
- Speculative thrillers ala The Thousandth Floor & We Were Liars
- contemporary, joyful, humorous slice-of-life stories about marginalized characters and their middle school problems
- commercial light fantasy adventures with extraordinary heart
- sister stories, competitor-turned-friend narratives, first crushes
Elizabeth Lee @EleeReadsI have some exciting news to share! Today is my last day at FSG because . . . I am so thrilled to be joining Penguin Workshop as Editor!!
I'll be acquiring MG, YA, and the select PB -- look out for my MSWL in a few days. :) pic.twitter.com/1kV3YH5leO
Maybe I’ve been reading too much news lately, but… #MSWL: SF & fantasy where characters’ core political/policy positions evolve over the course of the story, not because they’ve discovered a *conspiracy,* but because they’ve educated themselves about communities and their needs.
jen rofé @jenrofeI'd love to see a Jewish summer camp book in the MG or YA space. Cabin rituals, crushes, boy/girlfriends left back at home, hikes, song and dance sessions, dramas... Query me! #mswl
Please send me a graphic novel about a Jewish summer camp!! I promise I will never love anything more!! #mswl
#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.
