Putting it out into the twitter universe that I am looking for more clients creating beautifully illustrated books! Graphic novels, graphic memoirs, graphic nonfiction—anything and everything you're working on, for any age group. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

Random topics & things I’m into (idk it might help???): animal rights / boy bands / comics / crows / design / the environment / friendship / ghosts / LGBTQ+ characters / mental health / pop music / teen dramas / Zelda / the 90s. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

Nonfiction that merges pop culture, history, & feminism — like my client @sammaggs’ books: THE FANGIRL’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, WONDER WOMEN, & GIRL SQUADS. #MSWL

I’m always on the hunt for amazing illustrated graphic novels, especially for teens and young readers. #MSWL

Right now is the perfect time of year to send me your YA or MG Horror manuscript… #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

YA romantic comedies featuring LGBTQ+ characters. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

I’m still looking for a YA macabre fairy tale retelling. A story that combines luxurious fantasy and horror. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

More Middle Grade books, please! Anything with magic. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

A vegan cookbook, so I can taste test all the food. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

I would love to add a craft book to my list. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

Super fun Contemporary YA. You know all your favourite swoon-worthy fanfic stories? I want YA fiction that reads like that. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

Inventive chapter books! Something unusual with series potential. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

I really, really want illustrated nonfiction. Ex: WHAT WE SEE IN THE STARS, LITERARY WITCHES. Or maybe something prescriptive and workbook-ish like THE CURATED CLOSET. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 12

I love #MSWL day! I’m going to throw some new wish list items out into the universe today (and probably repeat some older ones I’m still hoping to find), but you can always find even more + extra submissions information on my website. mariavicente.com/representation/

I made the mistake of starting The Vampire Diaries on Netflix (it's my first time watching the series) and now all I can think about is vampire lore. I am ready for a vampire resurgence.

To be more specific when it comes to books, my Young Adult vampire-themed #MSWL would look something like this: new twists on classic tropes; more interested in a badass character than "vamp with a soul"; the Pink Ladies or T-Birds... but vampires!

Reminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.

I so badly want these “fluffy” YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities). #MSWL
