Léonicka @leonickaSo if you’re a writer of color with an Adult retelling of a fairytale or kids’ fable (including non-European stories) send it to me. #MSWL
I’d also be keen to read a lougarou book by a Haitian writer. I’d waive my no horror rule for that. #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaThese books also date as far back as the 1970s. So clearly the fairytale thing is a perennial fave. Reports of it being “over saturated” might be overblown.
So if you’re a writer of color with an Adult retelling of a fairytale or kids’ fable (including non-European stories) send it to me. #MSWL

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

Black cowboy romance. Black rural historical fiction. Black YA at the rodeo. Black horse girl middle grade. Just send me all of it. #mswl

Léonicka @leonicka#TheDragonPrince is back! So excited to watch Season 2. Yes, I am an adult. No, I don't have kids. Mind your business.
Magic, warring kingdoms, beautifully diverse characters. This is everything I want in a middle grade fantasy! #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaWhen 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.)
Morris Animal Refuge @MorrisAnimalSo apparently there’s a rogue goat in NJ who - having escaped from a livestock auction house last year - goes around headbutting gates open to free other animals “bought for slaughter”. No, this is not a children’s book/movie. twitter.com/nypost/status/…
But.... it could be.... #MSWL?
