Ashley Hearn 🕷 Preorder FOREST OF SOULS (6/23)! @AshleyHearnI've officially updated my MSWL profile to reflect what I'm looking for at Peachtree Publishing! It's changed a bit—particularly regarding stories that skew toward the younger end of the YA market—so take note!
I'm especially on the lookout for high-concept stories w/ a standout voice, and strong coming of age themes that speak strongly to teen issues, without those issues defining the plot.
In all submissions, I'm prioritizing inclusive, diverse stories and marginalized voices. #MSWL
Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearnIn celebrating my one year workiversary at Page Street, I'm going to update my #MSWL! Stay tuned for some specific things I'm on the hunt for, but remember, this list is buy no means exhaustive. More than anything I love being surprised by a book, so when in doubt—query!
The NUMBER ONE item on my #MSWL is a diverse magic girl squad book. Think Sailor Moon but with an intersectional cast. If you send this to me now, I will read it tomorrow.
