I dreamed last night that I signed a middle grade set in a forest and now I want one 🌳 #mswl

Middle Grade.

Contemporary, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Magical Realism, Horror, Historical, and everything in between.

I want it all.

I also want to read a middle grade fantasy that is as immersive and joyful as Cat Valente's books. #mswl

At the top of my April #mswl:

-middle grade with a crisp, authentic voice
-YA Contemporary with a big hook
-Adult suspense or psych thrillers

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

In anticipation of reopening to queries on *1/15/19*, I've updated my #MSWL, and added a new wishlist item: MG graphic novels!

Only a few days left till I close for queries. I'd love to see more MG and Adult submissions before I do!! #mswl #dvpit

I'd love to find a MG featuring a boy who has interests stereotypically associated with girls. Dancing, cooking, singing, etc. #mswl

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · 12 Sep 2018

A few uber specific #mswl requests:

-middle grade set in CA
-MG/YA featuring Jewish characters (whether they are religious is up to you)
-a book about NASA space camp
-characters with weird jobs or hobbies
-realistic, sex-positive YA
-international thriller with a female MC

#MSWL I’d like to see a MG or YA featuring a family that reminds me of the Weasleys ❤️

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT

When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more

☻ Middle Grade Fantasy
☻ YA Contemporary
