And now I’ll start listing off some specifics! At the top of my #MSWL: PB author/illustrators w/ a very distinctive signature look.
Some of my faves: Juana Martinez-Neal, Vashti Harrison, the Fan Brothers, Emily Winfield Martin, David Litchfield, Anne Lambelet, Sophie Blackall.
Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz@Nina_Writes @littlebeebooks @smariedowning @BerkleyPub @WendyGreenley @MyFavMurder @KarenKilgariff @GHardstark TECHNICALLY, YOU STARTED IT by @muliebris was so stinking cute. I loved the text convo format, the witty banter, the dynamic between the two characters. Took me right back to high school! I'm bequeathing my copy to my little sis in order to make her read it next. @Scholastic pic.twitter.com/Jol4cok98v
When I saw the mail carrier put REMARKABLES (@lisamantchev + @dc_litchfield) in our mailbox, I literally ran outside in my pajamas to retrieve it. I deeply love this imaginative story. I mean, come on: Mermaids?! Circus performers?! @SimonKIDS
P.S. This is extremely #MSWL for me.
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 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
