In young adult:
-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.
- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life
-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7

#MSWL but make it contemporary YA 💖
“I am interested in a variety of YA genres: contemporary, magical realism, horror, mystery, thriller, and light fantasy. I enjoy literary prose combined with a strong voice and high concept.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
⟡ Contemporary fantasy or magical realism like BIPOC ADDIE LARUE or THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY.
⟡ Anything that comps SPACE SWEEPERS, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY, Maniac (Netflix), or Warrior (HBO Max).

Welp, got distracted and forgot to sign up to #PitchWars, but I am open to queries and particularly keen to see graphic novels (all genres) and contemporary MG and YA. All genres and ages (up to YA) accepted from historically marginalised creators. #MSWL
Carlisle Webber @carliebethIt’s #WishlistWednesday, so here are the types of books I’m hoping to sign in 2021 #MSWL #amquerying
In general, I want commercial #fiction for MG, YA, and adult: contemporary, mystery, thriller, suspense, horror

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenESchitt's Creek is a romance novel.
I should be more transparent: I’d kill to see the adult contemporary romance novel version of Schitt’s Creek in my inbox #MSWL
3) High-concept YA contemporary or contemporary-with-a-twist, especially if it comes with an irreverent, self-referentially funny voice. Sarcastic or endearingly self-deprecating humor to the front of the line. I love a protagonist who feels like a co-conspirator.
(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl
For YA & MG contemp., I love fiction where the main character has average, everyday challenges and we see how they overcome them. I love books that are lighthearted and emotionally driven.... #mswl
