Over at @tubooks I talked abt part of my #MSWL : Native American/indigenous & Muslim #ownvoices MG/YA novels & graphic novels.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Feb 9

Yesterday was #MSWL day and I missed it, so I'm going to tweet a few things I'm looking for now.

My current #MSWL on the @tubooks account.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Oct 26

And we've got so many excellent books from years past. And more amazing books coming out next year (5 on next year's list!).

If YOU would like to become a @tubooks author, qualifying mss have less than a week to enter #NewVisionsAward #MSWL

If you are an American Indian author & have never been published before, please enter #NewVisionsAward .

Related to that REALLY small number: we are actively seeking more stories about Native American characters BY Native authors.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · May 18 2016

On my #MSWL right now: graphic novels. I'm actively looking in my submissions pile them in the next few days. Must be diverse, MG or YA.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Apr 5 2016

Alternate history writers: write me that book: a YA in which MLK & RFK live & the Poor People's Campaign succeeds. #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Mar 15 2016

So the #sciencefiction I want to see in my #MSWL ? Smart SF that takes a diverse future as a given.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Mar 15 2016

And I don't mean sidekicks either. I mean heroes. And full on casts. #sciencefiction #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Mar 15 2016

And then look at demographic predictions for the next 50 or 100 years. If you're writing #sciencefiction you need a diverse cast! #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Mar 15 2016

Late-night #MSWL in reaction to reading yet another SF set in a nearly all-white future: SF is extrapolation! LOOK at current demographics.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Mar 14 2016

If you're wondering what I'm looking for editorially, I'm tweeting #MSWL needs on @tubooks this afternoon.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Jan 18 2016

Hell, I'm still waiting for the YA novel about *Belle* two years after the movie. Imagine having a book like that at age 13 or 15...


Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Jan 18 2016

You could have an amazing, Belle-like YA novel about Emily D. West, a woman of color who inspired the song "The Yellow Rose of Texas."

Writers, send me this YA! (when I open for subs again in Feb, or think about it for a #NewVisions entry). #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Dec 9 2015

Kind of Alvin Maker today, but from Native perspective. And YA. And after I re-open for subs next year--closed right now. #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Dec 9 2015

I'd love to see alternate-present novel by Native author w/ Native Americans on more equal footing (population & power) w/ white ppl. #mswl
