Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein

Got a rejection of and offer for the same book, within 5 minutes of each other today. I've said it before, authors, it only takes one. Rejections aren't personal. The game is trying to find the right match.

Whoa. This tweet’s getting a lot of love. Reminder: I’ll only be open to queries until February 15th. Looking for YA & MG ms, especially those written by Black authors & other POC, and LGBTQIA+ folx. Please see my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to query me with.

You know what I love? A ticking clock. Think @rlynn_solomon's Today, Tonight, Tomorrow or @loversdiction's Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist or @NicolaYoon's The Sun is Also a Star. Give me 24 high stakes hours! #MSWL

I would LOVE an #ownvoices story featuring a Black Jewish main character. If there's a lot of food involved, even better. And loud relatives. And opinions. #MSWL

Please DO NOT send me pandemic stories or virus stories or stories about illness. I know these might be important but I'm taking care of my mental health and not reading those kind of stories right now so I'd just be the wrong agent for that. #mswl

Please don't send me stories about dead parents or dead children. Those are an automatic rejection for me at the moment. I don't want to read them right now. #mswl

I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl

I am THE WRONG agent for stories about sports, the Holocaust, anything murdery or scary, most talking animals, cults, Christmas, zombies, historical fiction about war, or Jewish stories told by non-Jewish people. #mswl

Send me All the Queer Things™️, but specifically send me #ownvoices stories where the #LGBTQIA representation isn't "the problem." Love stories! Mysteries! Saving the planet! Fighting evil! #mswl

What I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl

I love finding out about cultural/ethnic/racial diversity in Judaism but feel so ripped off I didn’t always know the diversity of my own people. I want to change that for today’s Jewish (& nonJewish) children & teens. Please query me with your diverse Jewish MG & YA novels! #MSWL

Replying to @HoffmanJess

Find me a Black Jewish MG or YA! Please! Maybe a romcom or a mystery or a love story? Preferably not about anti-Semitism and definitely not about the Holocaust or WW2. Something substantive and joyful! (And I’m ok w/not substantive, just pure fun, too!) #MSWL
