Editor desperately seeking middle grade comparable to Spiritfarer video game, will pay money #MSWL

(Spiritifarer is about Stella, the new ferryman of Hades, and the souls she befriends. I really just want a cozy, fresh, and accessible story about death for middle graders.)

I DESPERATELY need a book with the family dynamics of The Umbrella Academy. DESPERATELY. I mean this very sincerely.

Minus Reginald. #MSWL

🎉 Good News, Everyone 🎉

I updated my website for the first time this year & gave it a major overhaul! I figured, since I have a bunch of new followers (hi! 💃🏽)—no time like the present.

You'll find my #MSWL, books I've worked on, updates, and more 🥳

Just realized my most discernible #MSWL brand is: pop culture references, but make it gay.

Specific #MSWL request: I want a #YA ft. three brothers. An exploration of masculinity that isn't toxic. And adventure.

This is a very thinly veiled way of asking for "The Tale of the Three Brothers" but. Different.

Ok, cool, glad we're all on the same page.

I have a visceral, intense need for the most indulgently romantic book you can find. I want to watch people fall in love with a splash of "Someone Great" #MSWL

(This stems from a really vivid dream I had about Tom Holland & I falling in love, but that's neither here nor there)

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 need a fake dating rom-com à la TATBILB but... just make it as gay as possible.

I need misunderstandings & people assuming someone is straight when they're actually bi w that "oh shit, were you flirting w me this whole time?" moment.

& brown. Make it v brown. #MSWL #YA #LGBT

Circling back to the Area 51 Raid: if anyone happens to have a fictionalized account of the whole night for #YA that may or may not actually end with aliens I am all about that. Weird & irreverent narratives featuring tin-hat-conspiracy kids w deep, meaningful relationships #MSWL
