Happy #MSWL day! I'll be posting some highly desired manuscripts in this thread.

The first? Give me Fire Emblem with angst and queerness and high court stakes.

#MSWL - In MG, I will say I'd love, love to find a big middle grade series, something with heart & adventure. I'd love a sweeping MG fantasy-adventure, a new take on magical schools, or something high concept, high stakes, and FUN.

Tonight’s high-stakes thriller in an enclosed space (Six Degrees of Freedom) is exactly what I’m looking for. #MSWL

PS-It’s extra fun if you have the context of the old series.

3. I really want to see more #romanticsuspense. Heart-pounding thrillers with high stakes. I want to see strong women partnering up with strong men to save the day together. No damsels in distress. #MSWL

#MSWL Epic fantasy that asks big picture questions about relevant issues we are facing today, or will face in the near future. W/fully explored settings I've never seen before, women w/unique skills/roles & powerful personalities, and big, high stakes plots.

Happy Friday, I have very particular #MSWL's today—Twitter, please deliver 🙏🏼

1. I'd KILL for a San Junipero-ish YA: queer sci-fi with high emotional stakes and a sweet ending
2. Hear me out, a YA Red Tent (midwifery and ancient rituals of womanhood) set IN SPACE

8/ #MSWL: High-stakes MG and YA contemp that feature breakers of tradition and characters who forge their own paths, as well as novels about identity and overcoming adversity. Wonderful books like I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, Dear Martin, and The Stars Beneath Our Feet

5/ #MSWL: Fast-paced, high-stakes YA fantasy, specifically with unique magic systems and fresh worldbuilding. I'm particularly attracted to lyrical prose, and recent YA favorites include Leigh Bardugo's King of Scars and Laini Taylor's Muse of Nightmares.

I am ALWAYS looking for YA fantasy or sci-fi. It’s not even out yet, but Swati Teerdhala’s stunner, The Tiger at Midnight is EXACTLY the kind of high-stakes, thrilling novel that I tumble head over heels for. #MSWL

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Wild, different adult fantasy. Vivid worlds I've never imagined. Dramatic politics, high stakes in everything from making tea to blowing up the world. (Or perhaps making tea AS A MEANS TO blow up the world, mwuhuhuhuhuhhhh)
