#MSWL if someone would like to write a picture book biography about all the marvelous, kind, beautiful things Robin Williams did with his brilliant and complex life, I would like to be first in line to see it!

Hi! I’m putting it out into the universe that Iβ€˜d love to acquire more middle grade novels! I want to find strong personalities and big hearts, stories about finding confidence and discovering friendship, magical stories, contemporary tales, amplifying marginalized voices. #MSWL

Hi I would give ANYTHING to acquire a middle grade novel that’s like the nostalgic, slice-of-life, utterly precious gift that is Only Yesterday. #MSWL

Hello! I am on the hunt for a dark, magical YA that has elements of romance but is more largely focused on Some Grand Mystery/Threat, in the vein of Chime or The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Gimme that spooky, transportive grit, especially if it’s from a BIPOC perspective! #MSWL
