Watching Shrill just reminds how desperately I need some POC plus sized protags in my YA and MG #mswl

TV has a new kind of heroine: The Latina genius. Here's why it matters…

1000% seeking MG (& YA & GN) w/ similarly strong, memorable Latinx leads (genius is not a specifically-required trait, but they *do* need to have agency, fresh/compelling story arcs, & be buoyed by masterful writing from creators who share the main character’s identity). #MSWL

The 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder

It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers

I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.

I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—

The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!

This Mother’s Day… RUN. Watch the official trailer for #RunFilm - In theaters on May 8.

I will always want a twisted mom book. Switched at birth. Who's your "real" mom? What does it matter? I've also been seeing some speculative robo/AI-mom stories out there with comment on guardianship, biological and not. Yes to that, too. Give me something truly sinister. #MSWL

Also, some one please write me the DERRY GIRLS in YA #MSWL

This is fascinating. What if, like tomorrow, Earth captured a new moon that was even larger than a car? Then what might happen? Could we go to it? Could we build on it? #YA #mswl…

I'm open to queries and currently very caught up. (Hint, hint) I'm hungry for ya romance, queer romance for YA and adult space. Queer fiction in general. Chick lit/romcom. Women's fiction. I'd love a beach read in winter. #mswl
