Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl
BNnoblesville @BNnoblesvilleLove getting new #kidsbooks in stock 💕 Some are so beautiful they NEED to be shared...Littler Women: a modern retelling by Laura Schaefer pic.twitter.com/Js3dGPaRcS
So I totally misinterpreted The Wanderings of Dessa Rose to be a contemporary story abt a black girl named after Dessa Rose (badass female slave who led a rebellion) and was going on a journey to uncover her ancestry and heritage. So now I have an #MSWL...
The Ripped Bodice @TheRippedBodiceThis sounds like the beginning of a romance novel about a lady art thief who decides she wants a new life, mails her stolen treasure back to the rightful owners, and retires to the south of France where she meets an extremely handsome painter and they live happily ever after twitter.com/TheCut/status/…
Thao Le @ThaoLe8@E_Roths @Roshani_Chokshi It was truly a balm for my head daze from this current cold I'm still fighting off. *happy sigh*

Often in YA the MC is the only bookworm in her circle. What about a whole GROUP of bookworms? Like a squad of bookworm chars? #mswl
A. Sig @alison_sigReply with the fictional character type you always find yourself draw to (for whatever reason).
Not a fan of manic pixie dream girls but I love manic pixie dream grandmas who are full of life & wisdom & inspire you to be better #mswl
