Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeCheck out my past #MSWL for more specific plot points in case I miss anything.
I definitely need a strong psychological YA or thriller. Y'all know by know that Mindy McGinnis is my gold standard. #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeSo now that I am ready to re-open let's talk #MSWL and what I am looking for in manuscripts for the rest of 2018. Let's do this!
I am looking for writers that are in the vein of some of my absolute favorites. @kitfrick's writing is stunning. @lauraeweymouth's writing was so beautiful. Too many to tag, but I am looking for that literary beauty in a commercial hook feel. #MSWL
Whitley Abell | is supposed to be on HIATUS @whitleyabellProbably weird but when it comes to cults (#MSWL) I'm less interested in the disillusionment/escape (still here for that but it's all I see), and more in the ways characters find themselves drawn in, buying in w/o realizing it's a cult (twisted psych and unreliable narrators FTW)
So if you are submitting a Graphic Novel to me, let's talk what I want to see:
-Script that is more "Hollywood". I am not a fan of the panel by panel art direction.
-2-3 pages of sample pages if you are the illustrator and character designs
I am currently obsessed with Graphic Novels. Putting out a #MSWL for YA or MG graphic novels. And here are some examples of ones that I love or am excited to see:
THE PRINCE AND THE DRESSMAKER by @alooghobi
FAKE BLOOD by @HeyWhitney
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

#MSWL Tom Holland like character. He is just an excited puppy who wants to talk and then BAM! All the secrets come spilling out.
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI'd like to find a solid author-illustrator. Feel free to check out my pinterest to see my illustration tastes! I am super picky on this one. #MSWL
Lyrical books will always be some of my favorites, but then tend to be quieter books so I am looking for lyrcial books that have a hook. #MSWL
