I should note here - I would LOVE to see more PB queries from authors whose experiences are underrepresented in publishing. That's permanently on my #MSWL!

9: Picture book texts and chapter books by authors with experiences underrepresented in publishing. THE MAGNIFICENT MAKERS, GUM GIRL, anything by Julie Flett, DREAMERS, LOVE YOUR BODY.

5: Author-illustrator graphic novels (in all age groups) and picture books. I could make a list a mile long of favourites, but think TEA DRAGONS, THIS ONE SUMMER, BE PREPARED, and anything by the Fan Brothers or Jessie Sima.

4/ Only 26% of my list is KidLit of ANY kind. I'm super picky about what I take on, but I represent PB, chapter, MG, and YA, and would love to see more voicey, character-driven stories in all of these categories in my inbox in the new year.
