as a gal with many straight, strictly platonic, male best friends, I would love to see more of that in both YA and Adult #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 24 Sep 2019

I'd also like some upmarket fiction that revolves around an event that changes a group of people. #MSWL

#mswl Something with the fun #DnD vibe of #CriticalRole or The Adventure Zone. Could be straight fantasy or a mix of game narrative and "IRL" plot about the group of gamers.

Thing I’ve noticed: my YA list skews more girl, and my MG list more boy. I’d like to balance that, but still maintaining my overarching tastes: high concept, good plots, not-issue-books, joy and exploration and fantasy (both literal and just escapism). #MSWL

On this #MSWL day I'm hoping for an adult female coming of age. Growing up as a girl is so much more complicated than as a boy, let's explore that!!

#mswl Lesbian pirates, either historical or fantasy. I've seen a number of queries like this, but none have quite clicked with me so far. Still hoping!

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 24 Sep 2019

If the title of your book is SO AND SO AND THE SOMETHING SOMETHING, it probably isn't right for me. Why? Because most of those books are MG, which I don't rep. Some people will mis-categorize these books as YA, but when I read it, it's usually a younger voice. #MSWL

YA contemporary: I don’t want good girls, nice girls, nice kids. I want kids with buried secrets and selfish truths. Ones that try their best to be good but falter and make the wrong choices. Dark tone, snarky but not the shitty kind of egotistical wittiness. #mswl

Jess Dallow @jldallow · 24 Sep 2019

Replying to @jldallow

YA mystery/thriller in the vein of ONE OF US IS LYING, TWO CAN KEEP A SECRET, or THE CHEERLEADERS. #MSWL

Brooks Sherman @byobrooks · 24 Sep 2019

Oh, SNAP. @JessCluess with the one-two #mswl K.O. combo! 💥

Ariana Philips @ArianaPhilips · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL Smart and sexy rom-coms (I want to laugh and fall in love!), epic family dramas, gritty and contemporary YA, true crime that reads like a suspense novel, anything food related (f and nf), pop science and history

#mswl Character/relationship-focused spaceship or space station #SF--I'd love something with a Deep Space 9 feel

Stacy Cantor Abrams @StacyAbramsEdit · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL We are aggressively looking for #Amish romance for our Amara mass market paperback line! Contemporary romance or suspense, full length, authors with print tracks preferred.

Happy #MSWL Day!

I would love to a funny and uplifting friendship break-up / make-up story, or a fraught and complicated friend break-up story (perhaps a thriller?). #MG, #YA, #Adult Surprise me! #MSWL

For my wish list + more about me, see:

I'd love to see more true crime books that speak to a broader social issue, with a strong platform. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald [social media hiatus] @literallycait · 24 Sep 2019

#mswl Contained/closed-room mysteries or thrillers with an SFF or historical setting

Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllor · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL HORROR. Especially if you can comp The Luminous Dead
