#MSWL Would love to see a great New Adult novel similar to BEFORE SUNRISE. No, I am not looking for stories simply about college level kids having sex in Europe. I want the relationship storytelling.

I get a lot of great queries from marginalized voices (thank you, keep them coming!!), and one gap I've noticed is characters with disabilities. Define that however you choose, but I want to see more of this kind of representation in kidlit, and on my list specifically. #MSWL

I do a lot of fantasy, but I also do a ton of contemporary, and I'd love to see more big-hook stories set in our world. If you want a great example of hooky, high-concept contemporary YA I love that we rep here @FolioJr: DUMPLIN' and TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE. #MSWL

Hellooo #amwriting friends, I am looking to sign new authors, so here's a #MSWL thread. (And for new followers, please note I'm only seeking books for the kidlit market at present).

As a colleague pointed out to me, you can find truth in tragedy, but you can also find truth in joy. I'd love to see YA and MG that find truth in joy. Give me your funny books, effervescent love stories, your joyous and triumphant journeys, adventures, relationships. #MSWL

Hey, #amquerying authors! I'm open to queries again would love to read your work! I'm looking for YA SFF, contemporary, you name it. I love complex ideas, strong conflict, LGBTQIA characters, and more! Email query and first ten pages with QUERY in the subject line! #MSWL

To list some some very specific things I love: posthuman anything, morally grey heroes, animal familiars, characters who have to make sacrifices, unique fantasy worlds, people grappling with their own monstrosity, angry girls seeking revenge, and more! #MSWL

I'm very much a fan of characters who make the wrong decisions and fuck up and are flawed. I would ALSO like to see stories about people who do all the "right" things, but stuff falls apart anyway because it's impossible to control the world! That's real too. #MSWL

#MSWL Looking for some great women's fiction stories. Would love to see mother/daughter, father/daughter or sister/sister stories!
NO EXTRA DRAMA, just show a great relationship between the characters.

#MSWL a sweet coming of age teen romance, potentially in graphic novel form (think Bloom)

I would love more modern European history that is post WWII #MSWL

James McGowan @jamerrson · Feb 27

There have been a ton of picture books in my inbox lately and I am loving it. #MSWL

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · Feb 27

I’m going to put it out there again. I’d really love to see younger YA contemporary that focuses on young teens starting high school for the first time with all of the mixed up feelings that come along with them!

And as always, send me great MG of all genres! #mswl
