This seems an appropriate IF TRAGIC night to reassert that I am always, always hungry for a YA Broad City, because this friendship? Legendary 💜 #MSWL

Really in the mood for some beautiful middle grade #MSWL

“We really wanted to make the teen film to end all teen films,” Winona Ryder said, of “Heathers.” Instead of putting an end to the genre, though, “Heathers” gave it a new life: nyer.cm/wCvC0hX pic.twitter.com/W4bg0Alszy

I would love to find Heathers in my inbox. I have a thing for bad boyfriends. #MSWL

(In fact, I had a dream last night I was back together with the baddest of my bad boyfriends, and even though I knew better, I still couldn't resist him.)

#MSWL Black Mirror type stories in YA or adult, like the book No One Here is Lonely. Would love some creepy YA mysteries. Mysteries like The Truth Lies here and This is Our Story.

I’m back from maternity leave in a month and I want all the submissions, especially YA contemporary #MSWL

@UweStenderPhD Hi! What's your typical request rate (per 1000 queries received, say)? Are you super selective up front or do you roll the dice a lot?
Thanks!

Replying to @TheComingOfGose

I am very selective, but...good question! I don't keep stats, but my gut feeling....Hmmm, I may request somewhere between 15 to 50 manuscripts per thousand queries.

@UweStenderPhD Why might an agent request a partial instead of a full?

Replying to @21timetraveler

I don't know. You're asking the wrong person. If *I* am interested in something, I request the full. Maybe it comes from the time when there was no email to avoid printing and receiving all the paper?!? It's email, if I like it, I read on, if I don't, I pass, why not the full?!?
