It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl

Twitter, I am obsessed with this Taylor Swift cover & I want some sort of girl gang YA novel w/ this vibe. Send me your unapologetically scheming heroines, writers. #mswl…

Another new interview! @YAtopia_blog asked me some ?s re: my #mswl for YA (I got very specific) & why I Google authors before offering rep.

Heyyyy, #mswl day! I'll share just a few things I'd love to see right now:

Replying to @patricianels

Atmospheric YA with a vivid, specific sense of place, either contemp (a la AMERICAN GIRLS) or contemp fantasy (a la THE RAVEN BOYS) #mswl

#mswl YA contemp that perfectly captures a specific place, ideally w/ a big dose of weird. Something like Alison Umminger's AMERICAN GIRLS.
