Tracy CAN FIX IT Marchini
First day back in the office and I'm looking forward to some wonderful books in 2022!
I'm currently looking for:
* author-illustrated picture books
* children's illustrators
* middle grade fiction and non-fiction
#mswl here: tracymarchini.com/submit-to-tracy
I'm open for queries and updated my website with a new #MSWL, focusing on author-illo board books and chapter books; picture books and middle grade (fiction and non-fiction):
I would LOVE a middle grade non-fiction book that explores the idea of patient zero and looks at different endemics and how medical researchers traced them back to that particular disease's patient zero.
Send this proposal to me!! #mswl
Myriam Chingona Gurba de Serrano @lesbrainsKids in my classroom just called a Oujia board "ghost google."
This is amazing and there HAS to be a middle grade story in there somewhere #mswl
Amanda Jain @wensday95It's my favorite tweet of the month. Here's August's visual #mswl. Do you have a book like one of these you're ready to query? Send it! pic.twitter.com/6Celp4ZIPb
I spy OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA on @wensday95's #mswl for adults, and while I'm currently closed to queries, I want to throw out there for the future that I would LOVE to see something like that for the #mg/#ya audience when I reopen. Also something on food justice for teens.
Hadas Gold @Hadas_GoldAlan Turing never got a NYT obituary until now: nyti.ms/2WcwjNf
#mswl nf for mg or ya - his life, his work during ww2, an honest look at his death and the repercussions of anti-homosexuality laws, and how Turing's work still influences compsci today.
Katie Mack @AstroKatieMy work life has been so much better since I convinced the university facilities managers to set my office’s thermostat several degrees higher than the rest of the department twitter.com/taylorlorenz/s…
Anita Silvey @anitasilveyThere may be a children's book in this story....the Post. Not the Onion. twitter.com/anneapplebaum/…
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
more baseball for children and teens, please! (I would love a middle grade about Negro league baseball and/or the AAGPBL – either historical fiction or non-fiction.) #mswl
