While I was out of the office being a child bride, I received 27 submissions--this is all well and good, but only 4 of those were YA! Agents, I'd love to see more teen reads in my inbox ☺️ #mswl

Today marks 4 months since I started at @bloomsburykids! To celebrate, I gave my #mswl a lil refresh. There aren't any drastic changes, but here's some insight into what I'm looking for at the moment: editoralexborbolla.com/mswl/

In a startling turn of events, I have responded to all submissions received through 2021 😱 Agents, my inbox is ready for you!

My extensive #mswl can be found at the link below, but here's a quick snapshot of what I'm hoping to see this year:

Every submission in my inbox is either a picture book or YA--I'm desperate for some middle grade, people! Specifically in the mood for something along the lines Kelly Yang or Rebecca Stead. Agents, please send some my way ☺️ #MSWL

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

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
