Browsing and hearting at #PBPitch today! So much loveliness! Specifically looking at #POC, #own, #BVM, and #illustrator. (But as always, my inbox is open, so check my pinned #MSWL for tastes and please query if you think we'd be a good match!)💚📚

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

#MSWL A contemporary YA with a male protagonist that represents a positive view of both masculinity & femininity. A story that gives teen guy readers both someone to relate to and an example to live up to. Something that shows what GOOD masculinity should really look like.

#MSWL Take me on vacation! I’d love a MG or YA with a fun contemporary setting. Exotic or cosmopolitan or international. Tropical or mountainous. Or...Surprise me!

#MSWL My profile on MSWL is up to date, but more specifically I’d love to see some contemporary YA written for the younger side of the audience. Lighter themes that librarians and educators wouldn’t have any trouble recommending to 8th and 9th graders.

@dadavis3 😉 not sure! I’d like to phone a friend...hey, @MelissaRicheson what was the “it factor” for you on my query?
Replying to @BrianGehrlein

Hi Dedra! You're right, the MS is always the key! But I also really liked the snappy sense of story and upbeat tone in Brian's query. I wrote a post about it for #MSWL if you're interested. Brian's query is copied at the end. :) manuscriptwishlist.com/2019/03/the-ma…
