Bold, big, bonkers books for younger readers – I’d particularly love to see graphic novels and illustrated books for the 7-9 readership but any big funny stories here are also brilliant #MSWL

MG/YA: Fantasy is another first love! Everything from contemporary fantasy to high fantasy & epic fantasy. I LOVE unique world-building!
I'd also like lighter, even funny fantasy where the stakes aren't about saving the world, but adventure & characters. More Hobbit than LOTR.

YA: I'd love more light, funny YA featuring diverse characters, including rom-coms. (Note though that a rom-com would need deeper threads, more to the plot than romance.) We'd also love more on the edges of YA--younger characters just entering HS, or older ones starting college.

MG: I'm VERY open here, from contemporary to any genre you could think of, and the whole range from lower MG to upper! From light, funny, and whimsical, to darker and more serious. I'd also love an MG mystery or horror!

On my #MSWL: I like funny and dark at the same time. If you have a HOT PNR or UF with an HEA or HFN that twists a trope, send it. Bonus points if it's 75K or under. QueryManager.com/LisaGreenQueri…

DIAL A FOR AUNTIES @thewritinghippo is my latest #MSWL obsession! It's the romcom I'd like to rep: dark AND funny; accessible AND intelligent. I also 💜 how it's the story of a dysfunctional family & a trad b-meets-g love story. Please query me if your work is a comp!

I adore Adult Fantasy like THE ROOK and HENCH. Funny, trope twisting, smart, and that shows the mundane side of something fantastic and the fantastic side of something mundane. I’d love to see more of it in my inbox. #mswl

7. Funny contemporary YA—I know I tend toward dark stuff, but I also adore comedy, & I would love some super-voicy YA that makes me laugh out loud. Rom-coms included. Ditto adult for fresh & funny book club/contemporary fiction.

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)

#mswl I’m really wanting to find a great YA where one of the MCs is transgender. If it’s cute or funny or lighthearted, all the better. Although it can also have its serious parts too. #WritingCommnunity #amwriting #amquerying #amediting

#MSWL #A #WomFic: In this genre, I need to you tomake me gasp, cry, or LOL in your opening pages. MAKE me want to turn the page. Make me impatient for your full submission. I love sibling relationships, family secrets, and quirky characters w/funny or serious storylines.
