I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappHeading into fall (my favorite season!), I am excited to find fantastic new books to fall in love with in my submissions pile. Here’s what I’m eager to see… a #mswl thread:
First and foremost: MIDDLE GRADE. I am extremely hungry for a big middle grade series with stellar world building, cool magic, and a strong emotional core. I love my middle grade with lots of heart that works hand-in-hand with the high stakes adventure. #mswl
#MSWL - middle grade or YA graphic novel series, whether contemporary, contemporary with a twist of magic, or fantasy. Especially would love to find a great contemporary series with a great concept.
Peter Knapp @petejknapp#amquerying writers, I'm going to dedicate time over the holidays to read submissions, so now is a great time to query!
I'm eager to find more middle grade, from contemporary standalones & illustrated MG to sweeping adventure & fantasy series. I'd love more YA contemp & grounded YA fantasy or "twist of magic" stories, too. And YA paranormal (I'm here for your vampires & werewolves) #mswl
Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.
Still high on my #MSWL is (you guessed it!) middle grade. I'd especially love a really sweeping, high-stakes & action-packed fantasy/contemporary fantasy, and/or something with cozy-magic. And I'm always on the hunt for MG contemporary!
Peter Knapp @petejknapp#MSWL -- I'm still on the hunt for middle grade, and would particularly love a fun middle grade series with action, adventure, and perhaps some magic or a dash (or heaping cupful) of the paranormal!
Continuing to put this out in the universe: my hope is to find a big MG series in the next few months: MG fantasy, adventure, paranormal, scifi, etc...something exciting & brimful of imagination and heart, with characters who are at once brave and vulnerable. #MSWL

#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!
