My Manuscript Wish List

I’d like a some craft books that pop culture themed – think Joss Whedon, OITNB, Boardwalk Empire.  Odd, offbeat, fun.

I’d like a CYOA Graphic Novel (4 yrs in a row of asking for this)

I’d like more extreme sports YA novels for both genders.

More GLBT novels, with diversity, but also a little more light-hearted too.

More geek, all the time, for YA and MG novels and nonfiction

I generally want books that I can emotionally connect with, that go back to the teenage Dawn who was equally eclectic then, and books that have dark, contemporary themes for both fiction and nonfiction.  Nothing didactic, overly sappy, or overly boring.  No memoirs, no vampires, no mermaids, no wolves, you name it. But give me a good robot book, or gamer story and I’ll be turning the pages. And last but not least, a roller derby middle grade novel would made my derby heart really happy.
