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.)

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

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!)

I'm not usually the person who asks for the next [BLANK] bc I am inherently against the idea, but what I would give for a #MG series as clever and atmospheric as A Series of Unfortunate Events. #MSWL

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.
