I ❤️ BROADCHURCH. How did I miss this when it first came out?? It's so good! A YA mystery with that level of ensemble and such brilliant handling of suspects (I truly never know who it is until the 🤯🤯🤯 ending) would be fantastic. Bonus for tight-knit community 💣. #MSWL

Taking my own advice, I am asking for middle grade that will make me laugh! I've said it before, if you've got the comedic timing of Mitch Hedburg or a particularly funny art style, please send me those funny middle grades! 🤣🤣🤣 #MSWL

Can we please stop saying that diabetes is something that happens to people who are overweight? That's not how it works.

Diabetes is so misunderstood. Coming from a family with many T1 diabetics, I would love to see a diabetic mc in MG and YA where the disease is truly well-handled. Doesn’t have to be the focus/issue! #MSWL

Graphic Novels: I’d love classics reimagined with SparkNotes Twitter energy 😂 Would also love nonfiction w/Drunk History vibe! #MSWL

I LOVE THESE BOOKS. High concept, character-driven, bold, brilliant writing that explores Big Themes. Sentences you want to read aloud to the person sitting next to you. Also, 🖤 the novella length! Send me your tight speculative fiction. #MSWL

Fake dating trope meets quinceañero w/ rich and nuanced family relationships alongside the YA romance please. #MSWL

Full #MSWL to be posted this week on the agency's site and Pub Marketplace. But if you have a MG, YA, children's graphic novel proposal, are a PB author/illustrator, or write women's fiction, send me your queries following Greenhouse Literary's sub guidelines!

A MG with the incredible voice, fully-realized characters, and sense of family love of Schitt's Creek. #MSWL

Chelsea Eberly @chelseberly · 24 Sep 2019

A closed room mystery a la TWELVE ANGRY MEN for YA. Would be amazing if this had a social justice angle! And/or the tight list of suspects in and fast-pace read like ONE OF US IS LYING. #MSWL

I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL

Chelsea Eberly @chelseberly · 24 Sep 2019

I'm a sucker for enemies to lovers. A la SERPENT & DOVE and RED WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE. #MSWL
