Now let's talk contemporaries and what I am drawn to in those so when you see my #MSWL, you'll know.

First off, I need high concept. I am not often drawn to the contemporary that could be my everyday life. I need to escape so even if it is a real world setting, it is not my REAL WORLD.

"Illustrated picture books (by professional illustrators) that are high concept and character-driven or nonfiction-based.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

I'd really love to find a high concept, literary middle grade novel, be it realistic or otherwise. Please, universe? #mswl

a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook

High-concept romance that sparks an intense emotional response with big issues that transcend normal romance #MSWL

I'd really love a high-concept, aspirational romance. Think To All the Boys I've Loved Before and 13 Little Blue Envelopes #MSWL

Kimberley Atkins @kimberleyatkins · 5 Oct 2017

#MSWL A contemporary high-concept love story like #OneDay or #MissYou or #MeBeforeYou by an Australian author. Ideally it will make me cry.
