Contemporary

On my #MSWL, contemporary middle grade books about boys and friendship. Boys care and worry about and love their friends, but there aren’t enough books that tackle those emotions and experiences.

#MSWL I want witches (bayou, earthy, crystals) in contemporary or hist fic/fantasy. AHS without stereotyping or f/f hate.

#MSWL for MG, I want mature voices. Upper MG storylines. LOVE historical fiction for younger characters, contemporary that makes me like who I'm reading about, urban fantasy/magical realism where the child is strong & proud.

#MSWL Southern Gothic is high on my list. YA or A; historical fiction/fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy, magical realism. Bonus points for local legend and bayou storylines.

Super specific #MSWL: I'd love to find a fun, high-stakes contemporary #MG or #YA that takes place before or during a hackathon! Less specific: If you have a #kidlit story with witty & tech-savvy characters, please query me. 🤓

Whether allegorical fantasy or contemporary #Christian #YA, if your manuscript feels like @NeedtoBreathe - raw, honest, mud-longing for beauty- I'd love to see your query. #mswl

Because I have insomnia again, and why not, I’m looking for contemporary YA where the MC is an environmental activist. Specific, I know. Tag your friends. #MSWL
