So it's 2020 and I need more books so #MSWL pic.twitter.com/ZjqixMORcp

These are some of my top needs (from the graphic):
-MG and YA graphic novels
-Mermaids. *I know what I want so I will know when I see it*
-Elegant Horror. (what does this mean, Natascha? Think THE GRACE YEAR, THE HAZELWOOD, WILDER GIRLS) #MSWL

If your project connects with any of these topics, I hope your agent will consider submitting it to me this year! And yes, I’m only open to agented submissions, or submissions from attendees of conferences that I’m visiting.)

YA
-***THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING WE MUST CHANGE OURSELVES***
-juicy love story across power/privilege axes (which interrogates that power)
-again, joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center teens from marginalized backgrounds
-plot-heavy, pace-y historical fiction

(4/7)

Grace Kendall @GraceKendallLit · Jan 10

MG
-**we can fight climate change y’all**
-queer MC on an adventure, heist, terrible sports team etc (tho plot not necessarily about their queerness)
-STEM/STEAM threads
-joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center kids from marginalized backgrounds
-dogs, horses & sassycats (3/7)

Grace Kendall @GraceKendallLit · Jan 10

PB
-climate change exists! (a gentle introduction)

HAPPY 2020 Y’ALL!

For agents and conference attendees I will meet with this year (@kwelijournal @scbwisf), I put together my rough #MSWL for the year. These aren’t the only things I want, just projects I’m particularly hungry for....

We’re sharing our 2020 Must Haves graphics over at @bookendslit. Here’s mine. I’d love to see a query from you! #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 10

As mentioned yesterday, I also really want a fun cocktail book, books connected to #MeToo, books on diversity, and books set in other countries. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 10

I'm looking mostly for mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket and literary fiction. I'd also love more women's fiction. I want more stories like Whisper Network, My Sister the Serial Killer, and Bright River to name a few. #MSWL
