Very actively looking for fiction by #actuallyautistic authors with autistic protagonists, especially in middle grade, especially contemporary fiction. #MSWL

A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."

Really craving edgy, messy characters in my YA manuscripts - especially young women who make mistakes and fail and try and succeed. Send me some messy YA contemps, people!

Witness Protection without the suspense/danger angle would still be a really juicy story. A great conflict & roadblock to love when you can't tell your potential love who you really are. Would love to see this for Love Inspired (contemp, insp. romance, 55k words). #MSWL

It's #MSWL time! I'm on the hunt for contemporary middle-grade, and middle-grade with speculative or magical realism elements. Sound like your book? Hit me up.

I would also love a contemporary romance with royals. #MSWL Kate Middleton style.

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · 15 May 2018

In honor of the upcoming royal wedding, I’d love to see a modern day royalty related contemporary YA romance featuring POCs in my inbox!!! #MSWL

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · 15 May 2018

Guys, I’d really love to see some more MG/YA Contemporaries in my inbox. #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · 14 May 2018

Contemporary stories featuring teens with unique jobs! (Still looking for my Renaissance Fair book!) #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · 14 May 2018

Contemporary fantasy or UF where the stakes aren't cosmic (about saving the world) and the setting feels like a character! (I blame @christineexists for this one). #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · 14 May 2018

Contemporary Midwestern or New England gothic novels! #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 11 May 2018

Are there any YA novels about birders?

I would LOVE to read a YA contemporary novel about a teen birder. Anyone out there writing one? Query me. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 9 May 2018

Was telling @BookEndsJessica about my very specific #MSWL for a contemporary YA with a professional mermaid.

I’m into contemporary YA love stories these days, a la SIMON and DIMPLE, so that’s my current #mswl
