When I re-open to queries, I’d love books that celebrate existing Black folklore. #mswl

I would ESPECIALLY LOVE a middle grade book series based on BOUKI ET MALICE. I'd accept this query NOW, even while closed. #MSWL #haitian (If you don't know what this means, don't @ me and don't try to write it.)

I'd love to find a MG featuring a boy who has interests stereotypically associated with girls. Dancing, cooking, singing, etc. #mswl

Current #MSWL: Feel-good MG/YA. Any genre. Literally don't care. I'll take anything that puts a smile on the faces of readers.

#MSWL I would REALLY love a quirky chapter book series with geeky kids, weird monsters, or strange animals (real or mythical). I would prefer this in CB, but I’m open to author/illustrator graphic novels, and MG too. Similar to THE BAD GUYS, or CATSTRONAUTS.

So in light of my recent October-themed tweets, please do send me all your creepy, eerie, scary and strange YA and MG horror, mystery and thrillers. I am 100% in the mood for a good scare and all thing that go bump in the night! #MSWL

Male POV for #mg & #ya, especially in contemporary stories! #mswl

Dear #MSWL universe, I want MG as good and heartfelt and eye opening as FRONT DESK.

this is the moment i look for in my middle grade—the moment you grow up and realize it but don't feel quite ready for it yet. #mswl

(ps: read INSIDE OUT AND BACK AGAIN by thannha lai, it's *lovely*)
