fran @galacticidiotsDisappointed by the lack of love stories about an angel of death who falls in love with the mortal they’re supposed to collect and keeps saving them from certain death despite the fact that the universe seems intent on killing them
I grew up in the paranormal romance era, this is def a YA #mswl for me!
"I want weird and wonderful tales for YA like WILDER GIRLS by Rory Power, THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END by Adam Silvera, and THE STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL SORROWS OF AVA LAVENDER by Leslye Walton"
"I'd really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don't want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don't want answers to."
#MSWL I’m reopening to queries in Dec. & am acquiring everything listed on my website, but would really like to see:

Alex Slater @abuckslaterI’ll only say this once (but I’ll retweet it as much as I can) my Insta is: @AlexSlaterAgent! Find us! pic.twitter.com/CyGnh5PXUF
#MSWL #YA with an Elite (or very close) level gymnast making the very difficult decision to leave the sport, either due to injury or burnout.
If you have this while I’m closed to queries, DM me for a link.
Surprise! I’m opening to queries November 1st-18th! While I love picture books, I have a lot of them on sub so I’m hoping to find:
-YA fantasy, paranormal, or horror (no gore!)
-Adult fantasy or thrillers
Really looking for some great #PsychologicalThriller or #horror stories right now! Either adult or ya! Also, I’m on the lookout for some great romcoms! So in other words, I want you to spook me, but then I’ll laugh about it. 😉 #mswl
YA will be a hard sell for me. Although, I still love any game element or competition. Mystery in the vein of TRULY DEVIOUS and INHERITANCE GAMES is high on my list. Also, historical fantasy such as AND I DARKEN. #MSWL
Cat Winters / C.E. Winters @catwintersThis proposed national bill is sickening. To deem LGBTQ people as inappropriate for children, many of whom are young LGBTQ people themselves, is to call for the erasure of an entire population of people. We're already seeing this devastating quest for erasure with the book bans. twitter.com/Esqueer_/statu…
Have a pile of submissions to get to but a #mswl that's been on my heart ever since my trans/NB partner told me they've never seen themself reflected in lit: more books (PB, MG, YA, GN) featuring genderqueer main characters pls. There's power in lit, and the fascists know it.
Alison Weiss @alioop7I think there is a desperate need to fill the upper middle grade/young YA space.
I also think there's a desperate need for young middle grade that is much shorter to transition readers from chapter books to MG. I so rarely see subs in that space. We need to fix that.
