Watched #ThePerfectDate yesterday and now I want a YA romcom based on a relationship where one person is paid for platonic lessons on how to not be awkward/how to talk on a date but then THEY fall in love. Like Hitch, but Will Smith and Kevin James fall in love instead #mswl

#MSWL Please send me stories about learning how to lose (or handle rejection) with grace.

#MG especially, but also #PB and #YA.

Just an evening reminder that jewelry was a traditional gift demanded by women not because we’re frivolous magpies but because we weren’t permitted to have bank accounts in many times and places and needed shit we could sell for cash in a pinch.

Mind blown. Can someone please write a historical YA about a girl at the height of society who has, like, the BEST jewelry collection ever but is actually secretly hoarding jewelry so she can make her escape from the patriarchy?? #MSWL

You guys I am at the 90% mark of The Huntress and next I'm reading We Rule the Night to feed my Night Witches obsession. But what I'd really love to find #MSWL is adult and YA ft other female pilots - hello Bessie Coleman - whether historical or fantasy

I’d also love to find some hooky YA contemporary! In addition to my dream of finding a Jewish rom-com, I’ve also loved reads like Fangirl, Geekerella, and Simon Vs. with fully realized characters and fun hooks (themes of nerd/pop/fandom culture always interests me, too!). #MSWL

And in YA fantasy, I’m always looking for a lush, fully realized world that feels fresh and new somehow—but also for compelling characters who will root the reader in the story. I’m always game for a really inventive, smart magic system, too. #MSWL

Fantasy was my first love as a reader, so I'm always seeking that in MG & YA, too! On the MG side, I'd love to find "modern-feeling classics" that evoke the spirit of Ella Enchanted, or humorous, wry voices in the Dealing with Dragons vein. #MSWL

Firstly, I'm really eager to find more Jewish voices, across categories & genres. I have a stronger interest in contemporary (for YA, rom-coms included!) or sci-fi/fantasy stories that features Jewish characters. I've found I'm not usually the right person for historical. #MSWL

Hey agents! I'm raring to acquire lots of new and exciting projects at the moment (PB through YA), so I'm going to post my latest #MSWL today.(authors, as a heads up, I don't accepted unsolicited subs at this time!)
