SOME NEWS! After an S&S restructure, I'm now at McElderry, where I'll still be acquiring YA but will *also* be actively looking to build my MG list!

So agents, please keep me in mind for all your upcoming SFF middle grade! I'm definitely prioritizing that at the moment. #MSWL

This pandemic is hitting all of us differently on an emotional level, I know, but it's kind of making me crave stories about people worse off than we are... Does this make me a bad person?

Even so, I'd love to see more apocalyptic survival stories in my submissions box! #mswl

I'm ready to start seeing more urban fantasy YA in my inbox, just saying... #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 21 Sep 2018

I *need* a YA adaptation of this (times a billion).

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 15 Aug 2018

A YA 12 Monkeys. That's it. That's all I want. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 8 Aug 2018

So, hear me out—a fantasy/sci-fi kdrama, but in book form. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 26 Jun 2018

I really would like dark and wicked fairy books to come back. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 7 Mar 2018

Guys, I'd REALLY love a YA Altered Carbon—a super-futuristic urban sci-fi that discusses the ethical/moral implications behind technological advancement because I am OBSESSED. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 28 Dec 2017

I don't tweet #MSWL very often, but agents, I'd love to see more leading f/f pairings in fantasy/sci-fi submissions. If you've got something that fits the bill, I'd love to take a look!!

I REALLY want a female-led Avatar: TLA sub—but it's #Zutara/#Korrasami or bust. Don't need more heroes living out Nice Guy fantasies. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 12 Jan 2017

You know what I weirdly have a craving for? A YA fantasy/sci-fi set in a swamp world à la Dagobah. Yoda may or may not be included. #MSWL

Sarah McCabe @sarahrmccabe · 6 Aug 2016

Constantly on the lookout for a YA Dark Angel—Michael Weatherly/Jensen Ackles included. Hit me up. #MSWL
