My kingdom for a picture book about rats trying to prove they’re as cute as mice. Positive rat PR would truly make my list complete #mswl
#MSWL: I’m usually not open to picture books I don’t solicit, but I’d love to see something celebrating holidays we don’t have many picture books about. Ones that aren’t currently served in publishing written by #own authors. So if you’ve got it, send it my way.
Been slowly making my way through the Rick Riordan presents lineup, and sweet peaches (see what I did there?), these books are so good. I’m very much so looking for an MG action/adventure global mythology standalone or series. VERY MUCH SO. #MSWL
Lauren Spieller 📖 @laurenspiellerOKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.
I know mythology tends to skew MG, but I’d LOVE to see more global mythology and folklore—especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know y’all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL
There’s something I want to chat about that relates to my #MSWL but also has to do with my own life experience and those of others. The aughts, when I was in high school, were a ripe time for bi erasure. The classic line was that being bi was the gateway drug to going full/on 1/?

This is our mood today.
When one of us needs us: We stop. We huddle up. We protect each other.
I love the soccer. I love women.
#MSWL everything about this. All the girl power in everything but especially in sports. And girls banding together instead of seeing each other as the enemy. I know HS And MS girls can be mean, but they can also be loving, supportive, and empowering, and that’s what I wanna see.

I don’t even know how BUT #MSWL PLEASE.
Rick Riordan @camphalfbloodMy publisher tells me that after only a year in operation the Rick Riordan Presents imprint has a million books in print. That’s a million #ownvoices stories in the hands of readers & we’re just getting started. Thanks to everyone for your support!
All right, y'all ready for my #MSWL Day collection of oddities? Cause it's coming at ya (all #YA and #MG):
- Recreational fighting, both combat and noncombat (MMA, kick/boxing, karate, fencing, weapon work, etc.)
- Girl gamers
There’s no one right way to go through the stages of grief, and if we spent more time normalizing, say, taking a year and a half to get through anger (🙋🏻♀️), we’d feel less like people “fucked us up” and more like we’re having a universally human experience. So, yeah, #YA #MSWL.
