"Quirky cookbooks that explore topics that are hard to find in the bookstore, or haven't been explored at all. Odd, single subject books tend to grab me quickly. If you think your project is too niche, I might be right for you." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I'd love to see something where the two protags are trying to bump up their TV ratings or their popularity rating (in YA or adult) and start fake dating and post cute pictures if themselves on insta. Only to actually fall in love!
Make it queer.
See What's Next @seewhatsnext.@ChristinaMilian & Adam Demos star in "Falling Inn Love," a new movie about a city girl who unintentionally wins a money pit located in a picturesque New Zealand town — so she decides to renovate with the help of a (gorgeous) local contractor.

I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)
Savannah is. @slbrooks91#MSWL would love a YA about the gymnastics world that contains this level of reader-friendly information and explanation. twitter.com/sf_boswell/sta…
I also would totally take a #MSWL that does this meet the snarky fun of the movie STICK IT.
Suzanne F. Boswell @sf_boswellLast night, Simone Biles successfully performed a triple double, and the entire world is (correctly) freaking out.
For those interested in the background, here is a short thread explaining *why* the triple double is so difficult. pic.twitter.com/R4UC2jAlnm

I was discussing what a 2019 comedy of manners would look like with @maddestofburts this morning. Firstly, #MSWL, and secondly, how do you think that would look? (Let's not default to rom-com tropes, which aren't the same thing--think about society and what's "appropriate.")
Finished Barbara Bourland's FAKE LIKE ME this weekend and can't stop thinking about how much I'd love to find something like this to represent! Anything having to do with art, obsession, and conspiracy is very much up my alley (NIGHT FILM is also one of my all-time favs)! #MSWL
S. Jae-Jones (JJ) @sjaejonesFriends, please recommend me YA romances with dorky, awkward, and/or dim male love interests like Soren from The Dragon Prince or Ron Stoppable from Kim Possible or Jason Mendoza from The Good Place.
Where oh where are our dumb hot jocks with hearts of gold?! #mswl
Claire Draper 🏳️🌈 at Flame Con @draper_claireWhen you're shopping for some more masc clothing on Old Navy's website and then you think the two models in the photos would be perfect for a rom-com pic.twitter.com/UaMGqjr3u1

So I watched the Batman: Hush animated movie last night... I preferred the comics, but it did immediately rekindle my love for Selina/Bruce. So if your book has a Selina/Bruce type of romance/dynamic... I'd love to see it when I reopen to submissions #mswl
