Through mysterious publishing circumstances, I have procured three new middle grades and so here I am, just a girl standing in front of the internet, begging for more #YA submissions. #MSWL

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.

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

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!)
