Peter Knapp @petejknappHard to understand how it'll be August on the other side of the weekend, but nonetheless! I am excited to catch up on all the reading in August and am on the hunt for some exciting projects to sell this fall. A #MSWL thread...
It is now the other side of the weekend and therefore now August. Here's my #MSWL thread as we head into the end of summer (?) and fall!
“Realistic middle-grade stories featuring characters with compelling interests, like in The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez and The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin.” @agentvicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
I am very excited to announce that I am officially open for queries! I’m mainly hunting for whimsical MGs, transporting YAs, and select NF. There are some specific things I’d love to see so check out my #mswl for more details

Amanda Rutter @ALRutterWhen I was younger, I read Freya North's Cat, which was about a journalist covering the Tour de France. And Jilly Cooper's Riders featured the Olympic show jumping. Fiona Walker's French Relations/Well Groomed shows Badminton Horse Trials.
Give me more recs like this!
Plus, if you can bear the thought of partnering with an agent who would have to start contacts from nothing, then #MSWL on sporting bonkbusters. Extra credit if they're a) an unusual sport and b) queer!
RN, I'm craving a YA/Adult romance with a male love interest who OOZES charm and charisma. Nothing else, just those vibes of being irresistible af and leaning into it. Please give me your Henry Montagues, Ian Flannerys, Jesper Faheys, and yes, even Jace Waylands. #MSWL
In my recent addiction to food-focused travel TV, I've learned a bit about Queen of Creole Cuisine Leah Chase and how she literally fed the '60s civil rights movement and wow what a queen indeed. Could be an awesome PB bio subject...👀 #MSWL
