πŸ’” Stories that center on complicated history, trickery and deceit, and a full cast of characters just trying to get by (and slay some baddies). Think INUYASHA. If you know, you know. 😭😭😭 YA. #MSWL

πŸ’ž Family means everything to me and I'm a sucker for stories that feature big, multigenerational, immigrant families. 🎁 Have a story that has a treasure trove of family history? πŸ’« Bonus points for multilingual households and prose that keeps me up at night. YA or MG. #MSWL

πŸ’ Nowruz mubarak everyone πŸ’
In these times, it's important to find the things that bring you joy. And nothing brings me more joy than getting lost in a new story. #MSWL thread πŸ‘‡πŸ½

πŸ’« Nowruz/Sale Now πŸ’« has always felt so magical to me. It reminds me of new beginnings, of spring overcoming darkness, of the feeling of change just beyond the horizon.
Have something that captures this feeling? I want it. πŸ‘€ Bonus points for humor and romance. YA or MG.

I rewatched the movie The Covenant & decided that the Sons of Ipswich storylines would make a great YA series. Is that a thing already? If not, someone write it & send it to me! I’m a junior agent so, I’m not sure I’m allowed to #MSWL but oh well, I’m going rogue!

I’d love to find a high concept contemporary YA with a surprising narrative device/structure. Think Fleishman Is In Trouble for a young adult/crossover audience. #MSWL

YA / crossover is the big one, and there I'm looking for new takes on big commercial / genre, as well as funny, uplifting, voice-led novels, and (always) teen books full of sex, politics and content that teenagers actually want to read but that gatekeepers are sh*t scared of...
