I can't say this enough...I would be eternally happy if someone had a submission to send me with a similar voice to that of Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. πŸ’„πŸ’‹πŸ±

I will not rest until I find this as it's my ultimate #MSWL

If you think Succession or the concept of American Royals with a corporate oligarchy twist could be a good comp to your YA, please send it to me!

I know I'm probably asking for a lot here, but I'm hoping someone out there has this🧐

I could do with more #YA romance submissions in general in my inbox! Either as the main plot or as a side story for a delicious treat. #MSWL πŸ‘©β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘¨πŸ‘©β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘©πŸ‘¨β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘¨πŸ’‹

Really enjoyed #DontLookUp and would love to see more #YA and #MG submissions with creative plots that can bring attention to the climate crisis. Books can be so powerful. This is just one of many personal and professional goals for #2022 on my #MSWL ! πŸ€žπŸ’šπŸŒ²

I really want to see more #ownvoices refugee submissions for both MG and YA. North Korea especially, but also Colombia, the Middle East, and beyond. #mswl πŸ™

Finished watching Dopesick (season 2 please?) and would love to see more submissions in my inbox on the growing opioid epidemic. It's an important topic and something that I think deserves a lot more coverage in the teen book space #MSWL #YA

Just a note that even when it's no longer Halloween time, I will still want to see witchy and spooky manuscripts in my inbox. My love for this doesn't last only for a season! #MG #YA #MSWL πŸ§™β€β™€οΈπŸ§ΉπŸͺ„πŸˆβ€β¬›πŸ‘»πŸͺ¦

Begging for a grounded #MG or #YA sci-fi in the vein of The Lion of Mars! I read it months ago and keep thinking about it. In the meantime, I'm just going to go ahead and re-watch Cosmos as I wait πŸ•πŸ•‘πŸ•’πŸ•“πŸ™ #MSWL

I'm a sucker for a good anti-hero main character, so please send me your best in #YA! Though I'm also curious to see it pulled off in #MG as well. #MSWL

I've finally had the chance to catch-up (and take a much needed break) so Im excited to be reopening to queries July 1st! I'll be sure to send more #MSWL thoughts on what treasures I'm look for, but you can see more details here :) azantianlitagency.com/pages/team-mg.… #amagenting #amquerying

Please please send me an alternative history re-telling, particularly with a sort of fantastical twist. #MSWL

And if I can get something in a similar setting to the cold, hard world of SKY IN THE DEEP by @adriennebooks that would be fantastic. Please and thank you. #MSWL

As a huge astronomy buff myself, and in lieu of the first image of a black hole being released, I would love to get some more #YA and #MG submissions with characters who have a passion for fields in STEM. THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE is a perfect example of this #MSWL #amagenting

Though I do love fantasy, I don't usually go for stories that are heavily focused on action (huge battles, wars, etc). If there is any political upheaval going on, I need excellent character development and voice to balance out any action. #MSWL #YA #MG #amagenting #amreading
