Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL

Inspired by @FriendZonePod’s Industry Plant episode, @AintTooProud show on The Temptations, and Beyoncé’s forthcoming #Homecoming doc, I’d love a character driven behind-the-music style book. Fiction or non-fiction, YA or adult. #mswl

Send me sports fiction that will make me cry and cheer and gasp. Any age level (but not picture books). #mswl

When I re-open to queries, I’d love books that celebrate existing Black folklore. #mswl

I would ESPECIALLY LOVE a middle grade book series based on BOUKI ET MALICE. I'd accept this query NOW, even while closed. #MSWL #haitian (If you don't know what this means, don't @ me and don't try to write it.)

This should go without saying but FILL MY QUERY INBOX WITH BLACK PRINCESSES. I want them across all genres, ages, space, time YOU NAME IT! #mswl
