My #MSWL tends to trend v contemporary bc those ideas are most immediate to me, so here are some non-contemp topics I enjoy in both #YA & #MG:
• Pirates (sea- & space-faring)
• Worlds & relationships as lush as Critical Role
• Faeries faeries faeries
• Mythological lore
I am just a girl, standing in front of the internet, begging for a young #YA / upper #MG about a #Latinx girl who has to choose between a quinceañera and a sweet sixteen because Americanization™️ and all the cultural / generational drama that ensues #MSWL
Back to Work Day is here! Happy January 2, 2019!
Agents: let’s hang out 👀
A new year reminder that I’m looking for diverse #MG, #YA, and #graphicnovels - you can learn more at my #MSWL below 👇🏼
AN #MSWL UPDATE:
I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.
... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)
🚨 ATENCIÓN 🚨
I have some new followers and I've made some new friends and I hadn't updated my #MSWL since April, so, surprise! Check out what kind of #YA & #MG projects I'm looking for below 🥳
When I was in middle school, I got bullied for saying I was Latinx bc I didn't look or sound Latinx. & that drove me to completely reject a core part of myself until I was AT LEAST 21.
So, a #MG about being white-passing is high up on my #MSWL.

Julie C. Dao @jules_writesIf I ever use Legends of the Hidden Temple one day as a comp title, will anyone even know what that means??
Maybe only my fellow ancients will know about Silver Snakes and Red Jaguars...? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/RIvSKlASJQ
I NEVER KNEW HOW DESPERATELY I NEEDED A LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE MIDDLE GRADE UNTIL RIGHT THIS MOMENT. #MSWL
