#MSWL Remember the movie Warm Bodies? Well I want that but with Vampires instead of Zombies. Not pining Edward and submissive Bella, give me funny, regretful but also okay with himself vamp meets kick-butt heroine who's his match because she outmatches him.
GN: absurd, funny MG; fantasy/spec like This Was Our Pact; YA like The Prince and the Dressmaker, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up..., Genderqueer, Go with the Flow, The Magic Fish, beautiful coming-of-age like This One Summer that lingers w/you but make it all gay gay gay. 5/6
Kristie Choi @minjipattersonDuring my time off, I finished drawing a piece I've been working on for a few years now. I wanted to experience a bit of the process my graphic novelists go through (inking, coloring, etc). Conclusion: I like drawing, but I much prefer *editing* comics to making them! #MSWL below https://twitter.com/minjipatterson/status/1683962446590144515/photo/1
GN #MSWL : If any creators/agents have a project w/a similar vibe as this, I'd love to see it! I'm also on the lookout for coming-of-gender stories; queer romance; contemporary like Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up.., This One Summer, Go with the Flow; absurdly funny MG/early readers
I downloaded Threads like everyone else but am not so sure what to do about it professionally since my Threads name is my personal Instagram account lol
Anyway, a new #MSWL for you! Young YA. Protagonists ages 13-15. Bonus points if illustrated and funny!
Ali Herring @HerringAli#MSWL YA fantasy that isn't "dark". Dare I say fun, maybe funny? Something that feels bright? Still has to have a solid hook and story problem to solve.
Agents: So what’re you looking for these days?
Stefanie Rossitto #MSWL: voice (romcoms/ romance/ women's fiction): looking for commercial, love sarcastic, funny and literary references. Strong female characters are always welcome - Ann and I love them both!
I tend toward upper MG, and love fantasy and contemporary narratives, but voice is the most important element for me in this age category. I want funny/quirky/snarky MG voices, something really strong that hooks you in immediately.
All types, ages, and subgenres of horror. Looking for the whole spectrum: quiet atmospheric stories, darkly funny horror comedies, and big, over the top slashers. This is the main genre I’m looking for in MG!
A funny, heart-warming, layered family drama with an ensemble cast that clash socially, politically, or culturally etc. and has an interesting setting - like a Pakistani Muslim husband and an English Catholic wife who own a fish & chip shop in Salford with their seven children...
Query Manager is live again!
Good time as any that I am looking for YA and Adult fiction, with an emphasis on Contemporary, Romance (but not necessarily rom-coms), and Horror! #mswl I want funny, sharp, and dark wit the most :)
A thread of recent faves in next tweet!
I’m late to #MSWL day but: still desperately seeking a rom-com to sweep me off my feet (& onto a cushioned window seat, where I will read all day!). If your take on the genre is fresh & funny & swoony enough to make me forget everything on my calendar, then please submit to me!
2. something like SLIDING DOORS but funny! (or perhaps what i’m wishing for is a YA or MG EEAAO). the two roads/what if thing is usually deployed in the context of loss or tragedy, but I’d devour a story where someone’s universe is split over something absurd
In honor of #MSWL day! I'd especially love to see more:
🌟Literary Speculative fiction with grit + heart
🌟Funny + incisive Book Club Fiction
🌟Deeply reported Narrative Nonfiction
🌟Gen-Z oriented Practical Nonfiction (about work, wellness, or money)
Several of my YA romance writers are pivoting to adult and I am having a great time with it, so I'm opening to adult rom-coms for the first time! Still not the best fit for genre romance, but send me your funny, layered, high-concept mainstream rom-coms.
