4. books about the dynamics of friendship groups—I’d love something YA or MG with the feel of NOW & THEN, but more diverse (Celia Pérez’ STRANGE BIRDS does this really well, eg)
2. something like SLIDING DOORS but funny! (or perhaps what i’m wishing for is a YA or MG EEAAO). the two roads/what if thing is usually deployed in the context of loss or tragedy, but I’d devour a story where someone’s universe is split over something absurd
1. girls and nb folx who skate! does anyone else miss BETTY on hbo? I was gutted when it was canceled and keep thinking I’d love a bipoc YA or upper MG BETTY, a book about the challenges of hanging at the skate park as not-a-cis-guy 🛹
It's #MSWL Day! Find mine here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/carl… In short, I like books with black covers, and I like books with pink covers. I rep #YA, #MG, mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, pop fiction & contemporary romance.
T.S. @TeeEssSince it’s a new year and I'm starting to (finally) catch up on fulls, I thought I'd tweet out a list of qualities I’m looking for in the books I take on, with some examples of faves that fit those categories. Unless otherwise stated, all of these apply to YA + MG only. 🧵
Happy #MSWL Day! Here’s mine again:
Hey guys! Seeing as it's #MSWL Day, I thought I'd pop on and share my wish list. I'm currently on the hunt for super-hooky, fresh MG and YA novels! More here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kris…
In MG, still looking for spooky with a series of competitions or games 🧩
Think "Ordinary character in extraordinary circumstances".
Also, tear-jerking novel-in-verse
Happy #MSWL day! You can see my wishlist here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… I'm looking for all MG and YA fiction (except graphic novels), adult romance, and adult anything-under-speculative-umbrella except hardcore horror #mg #ya #sff
I’m also a sucker for anything comped to Studio Ghibli in middle grade!
I’m open to more serious topics in mg if they’re executed in a thoughtful and engaging way. #MSWL
In middle grade, I’m always hungry for action, adventure, magic, and humor. It can be fantasy or contemporary, or a little bit of both. Give me your fresh takes on magical school settings or just fun friendship stories filled with hijinks. #MSWL
It's #MSWL day so I'm sharing all the things I want to see in my inbox! Since there's a character limit, I'll just link to my MSWL page. I'm looking for a broad range of material in the adult, MG, & YA spaces:
#amwriting #amquerying #WritingCommunity
#PBPitch & #MSWL on the same day makes me wish I could nestle here on Twitter and do nothing else!
I’m updating my MSWL page for when I reopen, but my biggest change is that I’m dropping adult fiction.
Brief list (will expound later)
💫Adult NF - CBA & ABA
💫PB, MG, YA - ABA
I updated my #MSWL listing now that I'm looking for adult fiction too. Nutshell: commercial, escapist, fun or thrilling reads in MG, YA and adult. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/elan…
My wheelhouse tends to be middle grade, YA and women's fiction, both ABA and CBA. In women's fiction, I'm looking ONLY for interesting hooks ... like sure divorce revenge, but like with a sailing race & bet involved like in @Talicktweets Beware the Mermaids. #MSWL
It's #MSWL Day, so I'll post a few items on my wish list. I'm still eager to find indigenous authors with authentic stories from PB to adult. I'd like more contemporary MG & YA by diverse voices, including LGBTQ+, but not issue books. #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amagenting
Manuscript Academy @MSWLMA#MSWL DAY! February 16th. All day long! pic.twitter.com/2dUZ57wMt2
I've updated my #MSWL page for their great new platform and look forward to queries - especially if it's a multicultural love story, a
BIPOC perspective on history (fiction or nonfiction), a thriller in an unusual time and place...
Happy #MSWL Day! 👇🤗 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jess…
Categories I love to rep:
Picture Book, Graphic Novel, Middle Grade, Young Adult, Adult Fiction, Essay Collections, Memoir, Poetry, Journalistic Nonfiction
#mswl #mswlday #amagenting
Things I'm craving when I'm open to #queries or subs from events are #YA that feel like a @thisissigrid or @maisiehpeters song - gritty, catchy, & oh-so-relatable, but w/ comic relief too - & a light-hearted, laugh-out-loud funny #MG a la Friday Barnes by @raspratt.
In MG I'm looking for fantasy only! While I love charming, pacey adventure stories, I'd love something steeped in fairytale. I grew up reading a lot of Cornelia Funke & would love something with that tone.
Stuti Telidevara @StutiTelidevaraHi #amquerying writers! Since today is #MSWL day, here's what I'm looking for right now 🧵
A quick overview: I'm at @ParkandFine building a list of select middle grade, YA, and adult genre fiction. You can check out my full MSWL post here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/stut…
