Putting it out into the twitter universe that I am looking for more clients creating beautifully illustrated books! Graphic novels, graphic memoirs, graphic nonfiction—anything and everything you're working on, for any age group. #MSWL
Random topics & things I’m into (idk it might help???): animal rights / boy bands / comics / crows / design / the environment / friendship / ghosts / LGBTQ+ characters / mental health / pop music / teen dramas / Zelda / the 90s. #MSWL
I love #MSWL day! I’m going to throw some new wish list items out into the universe today (and probably repeat some older ones I’m still hoping to find), but you can always find even more + extra submissions information on my website. mariavicente.com/representation/
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI want a YA anthology called FLUFF, and it's just a collection of sweet, warm-hearted stories for these dark times. Someone get on that please.
This is exactly what I’m looking for in YA manuscripts right now. #MSWL 💖🌈✨📝
Maria Vicente @msmariavicenteI made the mistake of starting The Vampire Diaries on Netflix (it's my first time watching the series) and now all I can think about is vampire lore. I am ready for a vampire resurgence.
To be more specific when it comes to books, my Young Adult vampire-themed #MSWL would look something like this: new twists on classic tropes; more interested in a badass character than "vamp with a soul"; the Pink Ladies or T-Birds... but vampires!
Silvia Moreno-Garcia @silviamgReminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.
I so badly want these “fluffy” YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities). #MSWL
