Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothI feel like every single query I read tonight had a car crash and dead people in it. Is everyone okay? Do we need to talk?
So jumping off last night’s tweet…my threshold for suffering is pretty low. I’d love to see less punishing stuff in my inbox. More escapist. Fanciful. Fantastical. Inventive. Romantic. Just loads less…death? MG/YA. #mswl
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
After what seems like an eternity of editing, tweaking & rearranging, my website is FINALLY finished!! Check it out for my up to date #mswl, recent #writingtips blog posts, & to see what about my authors' writing made me fall in love with their stories! kortneyprice.com
Seeking FRESH YA & MG novels with HEART & SOUL & BELLY LAUGHS & TEARS & DEPTH & LEVITY & VOICE VOICE VOICE VOICE & SETTING & SENSE OF PLACE &

That’s all. :)

Finally updated my profile on the official #MSWL website. You can see the genres I'm acquiring including a few new ones including horror, suspense/thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, and I'm expanding into YA, MG and some nonfiction. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sari…
The New York Times @nytimes“Everyone freaked out. Nothing like this had ever happened in my work before." A mysterious painting was discovered behind a wall at a new Oscar de la Renta boutique in Paris. nyti.ms/2FQoecw
I LOVE hidden in plain sight discoveries like this. #MSWL a story with a jumping-off point like this, s’il vous plait, but turn it into middle grade & perhaps add some ✨magic✨!
Kat Enright @katenrightSo it’s been a while since I did a #MSWL thread, and I’m stuck in the car, so now seems as good a time as any! pic.twitter.com/xf6B32GAhT
Just as a reminder, I am open to MG and YA of all categories, Adult SFF, Adult Romance, and select nonfiction. For my static #MSWL and sub guidelines, please check out my website. Link in bio!
And I'm also really craving some MG or YA narrative nonfiction. Something a middle grader or teen can really relate to--a true story that has resonance in their modern lives. A commercial story with curriculum appeal (not other way around). The 57 Bus was a recent fave #mswl
I am so eager to rep some really delicious middle grade. Open to pretty much anything though not a huge speculative fan, and I've already done time travel books so not into that at this time. I want lots of heart, I want to be surprised, I want to laugh or cry or both! #mswl
“I’d love a super feminine adventure story for Middle Grade. Think mystery, high stakes, and difficult situations mixed with bright colors, glitter, and gemstones.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/
