Selling graphic novels for kids/teens is giving me great JOY lately (lots of 'em I haven't even been able to tell y'all about yet, Twitter, b/c Publishing Is Slow). If you're a cartoonist/graphic novelist making deeply true or wildly creative or just plain FUN work, gimme! #MSWL

Things Iā€™d love to find in my submissions folder in 2019: a (YA, I think?) graphic novel-style biography of Selena by a Latinx author or author-illustrator. #MSWLā€¦

Stepped inside @BankStreetBooks mere moments before the downpour began & well, there are worse fates than waiting out a thunderstorm in a bookstore. ā›ˆšŸ“šā›ˆ

Update: read some books. ā˜”ļøšŸ“š
Related P.S. Standing #MSWL request for all your kids/MG/YA graphic novels! Illustrators, authors, and/or author-illustrators are all welcome. (Iā€™m probably not the right agent for adult graphic novels/comics, tho.)
