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 ! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฒ

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 ๐Ÿ™

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 ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿงน๐Ÿช„๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ›๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿชฆ

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 ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•‘๐Ÿ•’๐Ÿ•“๐Ÿ™ #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

Still (and most likely forever) looking for witchy Hocus Pocus-like fiction in #MG and #YA fiction #MSWL, please! ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽƒ

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

Not a huge fan of a damsel in distress (unless she eventually changes), so please send me all your strongest heroines! #MSWL #amagenting #YA #MG

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

In the spirit of Halloween, I'd love to get more horror submissions! But I can't stress how important it is to have the overall tone and voice of your manuscript stay creepy throughout the entire story--from start to finish. #MSWL #YA #MG

Most importantly, whatever ya or mg story it may be, a unique voice and complex characters will instantly draw me in. Ultimate #MSWL

A solid #YA or #MG mystery is everything. I really don't want to see the ending coming! But even with a good twist, it HAS to be believable. #MSWL

Although I do want to see more stories in my inbox about witches in ya and mg, I'd prefer a low fantasy setting rather than high fantasy! #MSWL #kidlit #amagenting

Though I do want a fun and entertaining middle grade adventure story, I also want the characters themselves to be memorable! #MSWL #kidlit #amquerying #amagenting
