Check out my past #MSWL for more specific plot points in case I miss anything.

I definitely need a strong psychological YA or thriller. Y'all know by know that Mindy McGinnis is my gold standard. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jul 30

I want well-rounded characters and strong character development. I want to be able to know they are real and to relate to them so well. I should know them better than they want to admit. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jul 30

I definitely need more contemporary YA, but I am looking for contemporary that is not the every day setting. Elevate it and allow me to escape for my every day. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jul 30

In both YA and MG, I need more fantasy. Fair warning: I will be picky. I am looking for lush worlds, complex characters, and writing that sweeps me away. #MSWL

So now that I am ready to re-open let's talk #MSWL and what I am looking for in manuscripts for the rest of 2018. Let's do this!

I am looking for writers that are in the vein of some of my absolute favorites. @kitfrick's writing is stunning. @lauraeweymouth's writing was so beautiful. Too many to tag, but I am looking for that literary beauty in a commercial hook feel. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jul 27

#MSWL about a sibling with a disability and the responsibility their sibling might have, but fun, light-hearted plot. Not looking for savior plot, but more what considerations do kids think about.

So if you are submitting a Graphic Novel to me, let's talk what I want to see:
#amquerying #MSWL

-Script that is more "Hollywood". I am not a fan of the panel by panel art direction.
-2-3 pages of sample pages if you are the illustrator and character designs
-Synopsis

I am currently obsessed with Graphic Novels. Putting out a #MSWL for YA or MG graphic novels. And here are some examples of ones that I love or am excited to see:
THE PRINCE AND THE DRESSMAKER by @alooghobi
FAKE BLOOD by @HeyWhitney
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

#MSWL PB NF about either the guy who does the Macy's fireworks or about how firworks werw invented.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jun 28

So to clarify since people misunderstood what Disney's the thirteenth year is: I want a contemporary MG about a young kid going through puberty and become a mermaid. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jun 25

Can I get a Disney memoir about being a character? #MSWL

At the end of the day, I am looking strong writers who can tell engaging KID friendly stories. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jun 15

I'd like to find a solid author-illustrator. Feel free to check out my pinterest to see my illustration tastes! I am super picky on this one. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Jun 15

I want a really strong NF PB biographies. Going too obscure makes the book too nice, but I want books telling us things we never know.

I also want hidden history NF. #MSWL
