VERY hungry for some new middle grade projects right now - send me your #MG mysteries, heartfelt contemporary, #ownvoices projects #amquerying writers! #MSWL Oh, and some dark stuff too. #horror #darkfantasy

What a week. Gods of #MSWL: send me YA & MG that burns down white supremacy, misogyny, homophobia. Books to beat back the racists. Send me what terrifies them the most: your heart & humanity. More empathy today. Less intolerance tomorrow.

In my query inbox today, looking for projects that spark joy. I'm in the mood for voice-driven #mg and #ya stories that break my heart while making me laugh out loud. #MSWL #amreadingqueries #amagenting

I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! 🎂 #MSWL

I've been reading THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT and realized how few kids' books there are about chess. Then today I read that on this day in history in 1994 "Peter Leko became the world's youngest-ever grand master in chess." Wouldn't this be a fascinating MG novel! #MSWL #WednesdayWishes

It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

I 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

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…

Just watched the second episode of The Passage and man, I would give anything for an MG with heroine like Amy. Or pretty much anything that could star @SaniyyaSidney. #MSWL youtube.com/watch?v=m--WB1…

#MSWL In MG, I want something timeless, yet quirky in the writing. The voice has to be dead center middle grade for me.
