At the moment, I'd say I want to see YA and MG that leads with joy. Falling in love. Doing something exciting. Exploring new worlds. Kids with quirky passions. Humor. Families (of all configurations) that love each other. #MSWL

Happy new year writers! Here are a few #MSWL 's I am really hoping to see in my inbox in 2021. At the top of my list is big, juicy Contemporary Romance. Give me out of this world chemistry, off the charts humor, and escapism for days

Here's my current #MSWL:

In MG fiction: horror, contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure, mystery, and humor.

In children’s fiction: picture books (non-rhyming preferred).

Always looking for own voices, diversity, and LGBTQ+!!!

When I reopen to queries I want to see those friend families of outcasts & weirdos around that terrible cusp of adolescence. The kids who are patently uncool & dealing with tough stuff, but can get through it because they have each other, & lots of humor & heart.

Reading THE SWITCH & goddess, I’d love a queer BIPOC contemporary adult novel (could say women’s fic, but I’d love any marginalized gender) that has similar feels. Light romance, quirky characters, humor, & a heartwarming takeaway that makes you want to live your best life.#MSWL

For mystery, I'm mostly interested in cozy mysteries, particularly those created by & featuring queer, BIPOC, and QBIPOC characters. I want intrigue, humor, & fresh takes on all the fave tropes. Please no cop-centric stories. #MSWL

HBO Max @hbomax

IYKYK, Carol. #Superintelligence premieres November 26 on HBO Max.

I realize the vagueness of this #mswl, but I adore Melissa McCarthy with my whole being and I'd love to see some subs featuring protagonists that live with the same kind of heart, humor, and joy.

HUMOROUS VOICES! A lot of the contemporary I read and acquire has a witty/ funny narrator, and an author with a gift for humor (see: Cece in @SoniaHartl1's HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME). Please, please send me your funny books! #MSWL

Okay 📣 time for the Great Pre-Vacation #MSWL Thread of 2020!

🔥Please note that ALL the Yesses that follow ESPECIALLY include voices beyond white, cishet, able-bodied, middle-upper-class experiences—tons of these find my inbox without needing a hashtag to help! 🔥

#MSWL: SUPER thirsty for juicy, smart, book club fiction like ASK AGAIN YES, THE VANISHING HALF, SUCH A FUN AGE

YES elements: multi-generation, sibling stories, career-oriented women, sense of humor, reinterpreting classic or myth through an unsung character’s POV

I would LOVE to see middle grade contemporary stories about families, friendship, or broken friendships. Bonus points for humor and/or mischievous main characters. #MSWL #LGBTQ+ #BIPOC #amquerying #WritingCommunity
