Trends I’ve noticed in the projects I represent: lesser known traditions, magical foods, baking/cooking, celebrating differences, women doing amazing things, fantastical creatures, art/creativity, themes of home/belonging, creepy stuff, characters who choose kindness. ✨📚#MSWL
I'm still on the hunt for a mermaid novel! MG or YA. The catch is that I'm not looking for the falls-in-love-with-a-human trope, or something that features wars and kingdoms and sea politics. So I guess I want a... quiet mermaid novel? #MSWL ✨🐚🧜🏿♀️🧜🏽♀️🌊
I told my dad about some of the YA projects I’m working on right now and he said, “They kinda all sound dark and sad.” Aaand he’s not wrong..? So this is a good time to remind the internet I am looking for a fun, upbeat Rom Com. Would especially love something high concept! #MSWL
I am absolutely delighted every May when I see artists post #mermay doodles and illustrations of mermaids. I am a next level mermaid lover—I've read academic papers on mermaid mythology and studied how it varies from country to country. So keep 'em coming! 🧜♀️✨
I feel like at every high school there is one girl who will draw on you with Sharpie, like little tattoos, for a couple of dollars. I’d love a graphic novel about her. Would also love a GN about an Indian American teenage girl with a henna business. Send me all your tats. #MSWL
Since it's #NationalCatDay, this is the perfect day to tweet that I NEED a PB about a cat. (Preferably from an author/illustrator.)
P.S. My cat Maple is sitting on my lap as I type this and she approves this #MSWL item.
