"I'd love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included)."

I'm super into Stardew Valley at the moment and would love a book with that gentle fantasy, people going about their lives, kind of vibe. I think YA but I would stretch into adult, and particularly keen to see something from marginalised creators! #mswl
Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡
I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!

Juli IS AGENTED @ConduitOfMagic@KeirAlekseii BIPOC elves 🥲
This ole fogey grew up reading Forgotten Realms novels, okay? Evermeet was like, one of my fav books of ALL TIME (it's okay if #TeamBaby doesn't know what that is 😋)
Seriously. All-BIPOC Forgotten Realms-like work, or ALL BIPOC LOTR kinda vibes? #MSWL
Keir Alekseii @KeirAlekseiiI've passed on several manuscripts recently (one with BIPOC elves that made me cry to say no to, in particular) ALL because the word counts were 180k and over.
Thank you, Ann, for explaining WHY we end up doing this. twitter.com/annmrose/statu…
In other news though... BIPOC Elves are on my #MSWL
"I'm hungry for horror that leans on eerie, atmospheric, and unsettling. MEXICAN GOTHIC by Silvia Moreno-Garcia will forever be a favorite in this space. I don't mind gore, but I'm typically not drawn to it."
My #MSWL for PB: true rhyme w/ perfect meter; 99% of the time prefer text-only
Tip 1: You know where you expect the beats, so have others read it out loud. Listen for where they place the emphasis.
Tip 2: Don’t force the rhyme. 🤦🏼♀️
This fall I really really really want some cozy stories in my inbox. I never get enough!! Recently I discovered @naokosstoop 's beautiful work and those are the vibes I'm looking for 🍃pleeease send me cozy things, witches, breezes, leaves and hot drinks ☕️ #MSWL
a.b. @AlannaBennettI also literally wrote a You've Got Mail-toned romcom about abuse survivors so clearly I have a lot to say about how people who've been through trauma don't just live in gray-tinged sad worlds all the time and don't deserve portrayals about how that's all their lives boil down to
Please note that I am not the right person to represent works of non-fiction, literary fiction, short stories, erotica, screenplays, poetry, hard SFF (speculative is fine though) or anything younger than middle grade children’s fiction.
