“I read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Thinking about how I really want an MG that could comp to THE IRON GIANT.

And I especially want a character like Dean. #mswl

Annoyingly specific #mswl: anyone have an interesting Persuasion retelling they want to throw my way? I've been working on an Austen puzzle and remembering how great and underrated that one is--exes reconnecting years later with hurt feelings and figuring out how to reconcile!

I tend to love longer graphic novels for MG and YA #MSWL. Some recent faves have been LILY THE THIEF, GO WITH THE FLOW, PRINCE & THE DRESSMAKER, FEATHER, CITY ON THE OTHER SIDE, GHOSTED IN LA, WITCHY.

So let's talk graphic novel #MSWL ahead of me opening on 6/1. Below are just a small sample of some of my talented clients and their work.

For graphic novels, art is such a big part of it for me. pic.twitter.com/nePULFddzM

But you don't have to be an illustrator to give me graphic novels. I also love script only graphic novels #MSWL.

One thing I have noticed about my taste is I read for escape. I lean towards fantasy, or contemporary-elevated (which is not my regular every day).

I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl

Like many of us in these strange times, I’ve been taking comfort in books. And it’s made me think of the kinds of stories I want to champion.

Most of this won’t be a surprise, but for what it’s worth, here’s my current #MSWL:

YOUNG ADULT

- high-concept, darkly comic modern fables with literary writing and crossover appeal like THE PISCES or GEEK LOVE
- eerie and atmospheric fantasies inspired by non-Western mythology
- sweet contemporary rom-coms about QPOC main characters

YOUNG ADULT

- contemporary stories that take a tongue-in-cheek approach to deconstructing toxic gender norms
- ripped-from-the headlines contemporary novels with literary writing and whipsmart sociopolitical commentary

“In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles: Period pieces with women breaking into lively professions (think TV or comedy a la I Love Lucy) and Women in S.T.E.M.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Oh my word. I love Mark Rober videos in general, but this one is over-the-top amazing. I know there’s a #pb or #mg in here somewhere and I need it #mswl #squirrelsareawesome #STEM youtu.be/hFZFjoX2cGg
