Really happy to see my MIDDLE GRADE HORROR list growing with @saskwriter and @Lora013's debuts. I'm always looking for horror across the board from MG to YA to Adult, though not of the gross-out variety, but do give me eerie, tension-filled, scary with heart! #MSWL #MG #horror

Would love a YA I Dream of Genie meets Weird Science #MSWL. Think two high school boys end up with magic lantern, hijinks ensue. Awkward male coming of age but more heartfelt emotions, not sexed up fantasy. But super fun and funny.

You have a YA or Adult ensemble class in late teens-early to mid-twenties that could be comp'd to Betty? That's for me! For a project like this VOICE should be strong and character(s) has/have to really drive the narrative forward or have a strong plot. #mswl

It’s been a while since I updated my #MSWL: I’m on the hunt for hooky & commercial YA and MG, original worldbuilding & plot driven narratives - & would particularly like to see diverse protagonists across race, sexuality and gender. For more details see: petersfraserdunlop.com/agent/lucy-irv…

Got a rejection of and offer for the same book, within 5 minutes of each other today. I've said it before, authors, it only takes one. Rejections aren't personal. The game is trying to find the right match.

Whoa. This tweet’s getting a lot of love. Reminder: I’ll only be open to queries until February 15th. Looking for YA & MG ms, especially those written by Black authors & other POC, and LGBTQIA+ folx. Please see my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to query me with.

I also do adore tropes. Enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, fake dating, slow burn... I’d love to see marginalized voice playing with these tropes in their books, especially YA fantasy (and romance of course)! #MSWL

(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl

For YA and MG genre, I love genre fiction with fast pacing and high stakes. I am generally not preferential to any specific genre as long as the rules of the genre are respected and understood.... #mswl

#MSWL update! I'm now accepting thrillers in adult fiction (as well as in YA, which has always been the case). I am NOT looking for anything law-enforcement focused, including FBI/CIA. I am looking for the story to contribute to a larger sociopolitical conversation.
