This is the first time I am open to Picture Books! I am selectively looking for: whimsical and funny stories, especially those that showcase diversity. Family and friendship themes are my favorite. It's a plus if you are an author/illustrator, but not a must.
🌲Kids who are activists and engage in their community to invoke change
🔪Vengeful and angry main characters
😆Humor with heart
🧶Close-knit family stories with underlying tensions
🗾Big, sweeping adventures
💀Dark and gritty horror full of tension
#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.
3. I want to hear from marginalized authors who have a story to tell that isn't just considered an "issue book". Give me culture and family and love.
4. Give me characters I want to root for and in the end, there's a HEA.
