What am I hungry to find in my queries, you ask? Creepy, psychological (not gory) horror, MG or YA. Give me something strange with a gradual, gripping sense of unease -- make my spine shiver! #MSWL

Howdy, writers! Here's your reminder of our upcoming #AskUpstart session, 11/7 at Noon EST. And, in preparation for that, a note about the kind of manuscripts I'm hungry to see. First, MG and YA is where my head is these days. #MSWL

It’s just a week until Halloween and I’m in the mood to read something spooooky! If you’re writing a heart-stopping horror story for MG or YA, I’d love to see it. #MSWL

So, time for another #MSWL, in the run-up to tomorrow's #askUpstart session. HUMOR, people! I love books that make me laugh, in every category; PB, CB, MG, YA. Here's a couple reasons why:

It's also time for more #MSWL! Generally, I rep all categories of children's and YA books, both fiction and nonfiction. At the moment I'm most hungry for MG and YA fiction.

I'm looking for fiction for kids and teens that relates to issues happening in our world right now: the refugee crisis, the opioid epidemic, the Flint, MI water crisis. #MSWL

In advance of our #AskUpstart session 8/7, I promised a few new #MSWL notes. I’m looking for “Activist Non-Fiction” (shout-out to @_GinaGagliano!), NF that explores a current issue, engages readers deeply, and calls them to action. YA, MG & Graphic Novels like this – all welcome!

Last week I tweeted a couple things I'm looking for. A refresher: a dark, creepy Fantasy for older MG readers – I love Joan Aiken, Franny Billingsley, Holly Black, Francis Hardinge, Laini Taylor. If you’re writing like this, I want to read! #MSWL

As I said yesterday, I'm opening to queries next Mon & tweeting my wishlist this week. First up: a dark, creepy Fantasy for older MG readers – I love Joan Aiken, Franny Billingsley, Holly Black, Francis Hardinge, Laini Taylor. If you’re writing like this, I want to read! #MSWL

I want to be surprised! Something that feels fresh, in YA, MG, and PB. #MSWL

Replying to @susanhawk

Writing that is clean and true, elegant and emotional. YA, MG and PBs that are bound to be the new classics. #MSWL

PB, MG or YA books that make a difference in a child or teen’s life; that make you stop and SEE the world. #MSWL
