An epic MG or YA fantasy with lush world building and high stakes. Think WE HUNT THE FLAME. #mswl

I'm craving THE CITY OF BRASS-style rich and intricate fantasy, with complicated family dynamics, stark political tension, sweeping romance, and hard loss; stories that (respectfully) wed historical inspiration and folklore with unexpected magic and major stakes #MSWL

#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
• YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.

Agents! I’m on the hunt for a #YA #fantasy with a kickass heroine, brilliant worldbuilding, a high stakes plot and a touch of romance. Think SERPENT & DOVE by Shelby Mahurin, SHATTER THE SKY by Rebecca Kim Wells, and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. #MSWL

Lush, high-stakes MG/ YA fantasy with series potential featuring unlikely heroes you can’t help but root for and writing that knocks your socks off. #mswl

YA contemporary! I’m dying for a queer story revolving, especially one revolving around mental health. I want unique concepts and HIGH STAKES and lots of conflict. I tend to be drawn to more melancholy tones in contemporary—but adore humor and light sprinkled throughout!

Still high on my #MSWL is (you guessed it!) middle grade. I'd especially love a really sweeping, high-stakes & action-packed fantasy/contemporary fantasy, and/or something with cozy-magic. And I'm always on the hunt for MG contemporary!

Tiffany Liao @Tiff_Liao · 24 Sep 2019

More #MSWL: YA with "high stakes" low stakes a la Sally Rooney with a relationship that is so emotionally charged that one text or e-mail might just mean the end of the world. Across all genres, not just contemporary!

Chelsea Eberly @chelseberly · 24 Sep 2019

I love a closed set. Think MAZE RUNNER and WILDER GIRLS. Stories with with an exciting, creepy, high-stakes setting that drives plot. (And I know the perfect editor to send this to...LOL) #MSWL

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 24 Sep 2019

I am dying for romances in YA & Adult. Queer preferred. Commercial, high stakes concepts with a fun angle. Interracial couples w/non-white partners. Light-hearted but not cutesy. 2011 Tumblr-angst. #mswl
