I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.

Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL

Replying to @jldallow

Domestic suspense, filled with twists and turns. I read so much and watch a lot of TV shows that it's hard to shock me. So, surprise me. Keep me guessing until the very end. #MSWL

A MG with the incredible voice, fully-realized characters, and sense of family love of Schitt's Creek. #MSWL

Still dying to find a Lost Boy book about one of them after they escape Neverland and are forced to live in London.

Also still dying to find casts like FireFly or Buffy with banter and sass and adventures. #MSWL

For adult, I'd love a contemporary romance with humor. Maybe not full out Bridget Jones, but something that takes realistic elements and makes us giggle at them. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Definitely always on the lookout for contemporary. I want all the feels, the angst. In YA, I really want mental health focus on LGBTQ+. DEFF want LGBTQ+ middle grade crushes! GIMME! #MSWL

Some general info:
- I’m currently only accepting agented submissions
- I’m very actively seeking adult horror for #Nightfire, so that’s my priority
- BUT I’m open to YA horror, and adult and YA fantasy, scifi, and thrillers as well

I'm truly interested in the intersection of upmarket sentences and scary content, whether that's for MG, YA or adult...I am here for this. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Hell yes if those historicals are feminist, LGBTQ+, POC. Definitely interested in non-American and non-UK settings. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Currently on a HUGE hunt for historical! Any age. I want lesser known historic events and locations. I want MG trusted to become enmeshed in important/involved moments. I want YA and Adult to show rebellion or championing against the common law. #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 24 Sep 2019

I'd love to see a women's fiction/rom com protagonist with the humor of Lilly Singh on A Little Late with Lilly Singh. #MSWL

Perennial #MSWL: the team up between Elle Woods & Gracie Hart

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

I LOVE Fantasy (Urban, Contemporary, Epic, the whole wazoo). Give me lush worlds, fabulous magic systems, diverse and deep cultures. I'd love to see these also grappling with environmental issues or disability/mental health #MSWL

Chelsea Eberly @chelseberly · 24 Sep 2019

A closed room mystery a la TWELVE ANGRY MEN for YA. Would be amazing if this had a social justice angle! And/or the tight list of suspects in and fast-pace read like ONE OF US IS LYING. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Ok, real quick #MSWL thread that I'm squeezing in today.

Basics: Upper MG, YA, Adult.

DO NOT send me PBs, Short Stories, Chapter Books, Nonfiction, Thriller/Mystery/Suspense, or Erotica

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 24 Sep 2019

Middle grade heist novels would be fantastic, too. #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 24 Sep 2019

I realize this is super specific, but that's what #MSWL is for!

I'd love a middle grade that plays with how we can never be 100% sure what others are thinking--and, if it comes with something like an objective social interpretation machine, all the better.

#MSWL Looking for some sassy, sexy historical romances: ruined rogues making good...a Lady not afraid to go after her desires... Vikings and Medieval eras as well. #ownvoices welcome

My Friday #mswl: a story with an "Arrival"-like twist that unfurls across many layers rather than pulls the rug out from under you

Huzzah #MSWL day! I'm still yearning for this speculative, twisty YA, something ambitious in scope and structure that doesn't forsake emotions or characters.
