Founder & Literary Agent at @ASHliterary . Dogs & books, mostly. Never knowingly out-lipsticked. Views my own. She/her. It's Alice, never Ali. No DM queries.
As ever I am always thrilled to see queries from those historically underrepresented in the industry and would be really excited to see some illustrator portfolios as well. #mswl
🎄 Alice S-H 🎄 @alibelleHello! Happy 2022! I will be back at my desk tomorrow morning and am excited to dive into what’s already shaping up to be an exciting year, over 300 (!) assistant applications, AND I’ll be opening to queries. Ahead of that, let’s do a #mswl thread.
I’m looking across picture books (author-illustrator only) to YA including graphic novels. I love romcoms, friendcoms, adventures and intriguing magic. I am not a fit for most horror, sci-fi, anything to do with emergencies on planes or the pandemic, or animal POVs. #mswl
Really feeling in the mood for some fantastic MG.
- Weird and wonderful worlds
- Joyous contemporary stories
- Epic adventures
- Strong friendships
Looking across novels, highly illustrated (particularly author-illustrator created) and graphic novels.
Alice S-H @alibelleSlightly weird feeling removing "Rights Agent" from my signature, as I'm no longer working on international rights after nearly three and a half years.
I'm now solely primary agenting and I'm super excited to have more time and space to dedicate to it!
With that in mind, send me your work! I'm looking for MG-YA including graphic novels, and illustrators across all ages. I want fun, fresh and escapist books with a phenomenal voice and a clear hook. Looking forward to reading!
I'm itching to sign up some new talent to join my amazing list of illustrators and authors! Have a look at my page and get in touch! madeleinemilburn.co.uk/looking-for/al… #mswl
Have updated my Looking For page! Take a look and get in touch if you have something that might fit. (And please don't judge the Mariah Carey-esque photo. It was VERY WINDY that day.) #mswl
I’m caught up on submissions 🎉 If we’ve been talking and you haven’t heard, please chase me.
If you’re writing/illustrating & looking to query, HELLO. I want contemp F/F romance (YA/teen), funny MG series, FRIENDSHIPS across all ages & Eighth Grade as a book.
I've just updated my #MSWL on our shiny new website! Take a look and get in touch. madeleinemilburn.co.uk/looking-for/al…
Current #MSWL: Fat feminists of all ages, funny and fantastical MG (I have a lot of room for MG!), quirky illustrations. DMs are open!
