#MSWL I would love a YA contemporary following an 18 year old who’s recruited into military service. Something that explores the complex socioeconomic issues pushing teens to enlist

A few things that are on my mind today for #MSWL. I'd love a YA adaptation of Empire Records. Maaaaybe set in an indie bookstore instead of a record store? I would also love a "happy" memoir. Not sure what that would look like... but eager to hear what y'all have for me! :)

I kind of want a YA about a Claudia Conway figure? Her dad is part of the Lincoln Project and her mom works for the White House. She is whistle blowing. Throw in a love interest from the opposite side of the aisle and it's a novel. #mswl

Queer YA or adult horror by an author of color, I need it. Maybe it’s because it’s October, but I’m craving a queer MEXICAN GOTHIC or THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING, or something like in the vein of WILDER GIRLS by an author of color. #MSWL

I am a voracious fantasy reader. I’m looking for BIPOC fantasies in both, YA and crossover. Give me intrigue, emotional nuance and astounding character arcs. I have always made my home in this genre. Send me some!

And I’m still looking for that Latinx fantasy! #MSWL

I’m really looking forward to #KidLitGN! I’ll be looking for MG + YA graphic novels from authors and author/illustrators. I love realism and magic and science and horror—I love it all! I’m also particularly keen to find projects from diverse creators! #mswl

Also, more graphic novel authors and illustrators! I'm open to all categories, but especially love MG and YA. Mostly looking for inclusive, diverse stories from underrepresented communities. #MSWL #GraphicNovel #illustrator

I've been seeing a lot of fantasy in queries and I'd love contemporary in the YA & Adult space! Also, looking for more Women's Fiction, Domestic Suspense (think Dark Places), and Romance! Though less rom-com and more steamy - really, anything that's not too sweet! #mswl
