Literary agent at Trident Media Group. These are not misprints, but beauties of my style hitherto undreamt of.
#MSWL: I'd love a YA in the vein of #SeeYouYesterday. Set in the hot center of a contemporary American city. Give me the sounds, sights, flavors of the place, all in the middle of the summer. Make the stakes as high as THUG. Make it shine with magic/fantasy. Blend the genres.
Trisha de Guzman @trishadegAn end of day #MSWL: I would love middle grade or young adult novel that takes a no-holds-barred look at colorism in marginalized communities and the damage it does to the people in them. #YA #MG #Children
Yes and please. #MSWL
Beto Blocker (AKA Michael Bourret) @MichaelBourret@agentsaba @abuckslater It’s just a personal fave. One of the few books I’ve reread. For me, it hits that commercial/literary sweet spot perfectly. Smart enough to make you feel smart, but accessible enough to be read easily (even at its length).
Keah Brown @Keah_MariaOkay, okay. And the last thing I’m going to say is that I know your agent should ride for you but @abuckslater does through and through. I’m just very green and so freaking excited all the time and he just lets me be and fights for the things he knows I want. He’s a real one.
Hey writers! Here’s a shameless humblebragretweet! Query me if you’re like Keah: wildly talented, bold, and inimitable. #mswl
What a week. Gods of #MSWL: send me YA & MG that burns down white supremacy, misogyny, homophobia. Books to beat back the racists. Send me what terrifies them the most: your heart & humanity. More empathy today. Less intolerance tomorrow.
