I really do need a Anne and Gilbert level chemistry in a romcom #MSWL

Pop punk and emo bands that could easily be the title of a Young Adult novel:

🏃‍♂️ The Get Up Kids
⏳ A Day to Remember
❄️ Further Seems Forever
🚀 The Rocket Summer
✨ Straylight Run
🍂 Hidden In Plain View
💫 Count the Stars
😭 Dashboard Confessional
👑 We the Kings

Or their songs. Good grief #MSWL: “The Moon Is Down,” “New Year’s Project,” “Just Until Sundown,” “Again I Go Unnoticed,” “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most”!!!!!

(Maybe they’re YA - or maybe they’re for us 30-something punk kids who wore Mary Janes & too much eyeliner.)

2020 is when Persona 4 finally got released for PC, so 2020's the perfect time to remix that nostalgic, small-town Japan, crime-solving-teens feeling except w/o the homophobia and pointless sexism, right? #mswl

#MSWL for immigration and first gen books. Give me happiness. Give me joy. Give me the culture clash.

My #mswl profile is up on the MSWL website! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mara… I’ve put the link up in my profile, but I’m adding it to the thread here! Check it out!

It just occurred to me that I have not mentioned it here, but the focus of my list has always been the stories from marginalized voices where the characters are just living their lives. Pain is part of our stories, but I want to give space to the joyful stories. Send to me #mswl

Spoke to an editor this morning and reminded myself how much I want a historical in MG, YA, or Adult about a gun-toting, foul mouthed, self-sufficient woman like Ruby from Cold Mountain. Any country or continent or sexuality or skin color. I’m tired of petticoats. #MSWL

3. I want to hear from marginalized authors who have a story to tell that isn't just considered an "issue book". Give me culture and family and love.
4. Give me characters I want to root for and in the end, there's a HEA.

What am I missing in my inbox?
1. I want smushy sweet romance that makes me tear up when I read--like LOVE, VICTOR or LOVE, SIMON or RED WHITE and ROYAL BLUE.
2. I want relationships that are full of friendship and happiness, especially written with a cast of diverse characters.

#MSWL I'm now open to adult contemporary fiction, both commercial and upmarket. I want witty beach reads, elements of suspense/thriller, family secrets, and books about rich people behaving badly

I think I've said this before, but I'd love to get a proposal for a sweet, G-rated Asian-American romance (#ownvoices) for Hallmark. Christmas or not-Christmas! #MSWL #publishing #WritingCommunity

Reading this was like reading a hurricane. The best memoir on mental health I’ve ever read. PLEASE send me more! #MSWL
