brooklyn, new york
alli hellegers @allidhellegersIf you’re a Black children’s book writer and have queried me for a middle grade or YA novel, please resend through the website and use the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter before your query, and it will be read and responded to next week. Open to new queries as well.
#MSWL please keep these great submissions coming from Black children’s book writers! I’m also interested in author-illustrators with existing picture book dummies. #BlackVoices find me through the Stimola website through the submission form. 🖤
Speaking of #PitDark and #MSWL, does anyone have a thriller as nuanced and developed as the Swedish book/film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN? What that book did for (spoiler alert) vampires I'd like to see your book do for...surprise me.
#MSWL send me your timeless books for middle grade readers that will encourage kids to get off their screens, appreciate the natural world and have real social interactions. (Although a great text message exchange in a book is also fun if it feels real!)
#MSWL I'm looking for strong YA/adult crossover titles with voice, sense of place, and a unique POV. Keep momentum going. Also, please something with a unique format or story structure that will be appeal to reluctant readers.
