Some good news for the timeline: My responsibilities at work will be changing in the next couple weeks, & I'll be focusing solely on my own list!

If any agents would like to connect (or reconnect!), I'm happy to chat. In the meantime, here is my #MSWL: editoralexborbolla.wordpress.com/mswl/

Anyway, all this to say, if you have a book that has the vibe of Folklore—either now or in the future—give it to me. #mswl

If any agents have anything remotely comparable to NEVER HAVE I EVER, I want it. #mswl

I would love a MG or YA about life after recovering from illness like ALEXA AND KATIE on Netflix or Barbara Dee’s HALFWAY NORMAL #MSWL

Sibling relationships are weird. I like weird. #MSWL

I just...really want a picture book about dogs. Or manatees. Or both. #MSWL

Am I months behind on submissions? Yes. Will that prevent me from asking for more? NOPE!

Anyone have a young, funny YA to send my way? Think Meg Cabot with a little heft. #mswl

This weekend I:

-watched Someone Great
-finished Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
-caught up on Jane the Virgin

And now I’m just wondering where a girl can get YA versions of every single one of these??#MSWL

Listen guys. I don’t know much about graphic novels (yet) but I DO know a graphic novel set in Cuba would be 💯 #MSWL

Little know fact about me: I bake! I’d love a project that has a baking element to it. #MSWL
