I am actively digging through my inbox looking for: #MSWL
▪️PB/MG NF about science or history topics
▪️Adult mystery/suspense in the vein of Oyinkan Braithwaite, Steph Cha, Alex North, Tana French
▪️Upmarket family stories
▪️Horror: Psychological! Ghosts!
kelly andrew @KayAyDrewI was just told by someone in my life that no one cares about reading d/Deaf or HoH own voices stories, and that I'm "barking up the wrong tree."
Maybe he was right, but I've never in my life been more motivated to prove anyone wrong.
Massive respect for the Deaf and HoH community! My college ASL Classes and time spent in the local community was an incredibly welcoming experience and I’d love to be a part of uplifting these stories. #MSWL
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixJumping on this @bookendslit #MSWL pile of awesomeness! I'm still desperate for my contemp YA updated Girl: Interrupted (NOT SFF for this). Mental health, mental health, mental health.
Also seeking MG SFF.
I'd love to see some new adult space opera with #ownvoices elements! twitter.com/AgentJessicaA/…

Ashley Congdon @AshleyCCongdon@jamerrson What themes, topics, styles, etc. excite you right now for picture books? #askagent
Is it fair to say everything? If I had to choose, non-fiction is most exciting to me right now, and I’m especially looking for some climate/environment related stuff. But I always love funny pbs. #MSWL
James McGowan @jamerrsonIt's #MSWL day! (pt. 2) (Children's Fiction)
My door will always be open to picture books, running the gamut.
Fiction, non-fiction, funny, heartwarming, STEM, arts, anything. #MSWL
I've been on a #horror kick and would love some more in my inbox. I tend to gravitate towards psychological horror, or ghost stories. #MSWL
Think Jennifer McMahon, Hill House, Paul Tremblay.
I'm not one for demons and creatures or what have you.
James McGowan @jamerrsonIt's #MSWL day, and I don't make the rules, so here I go.
Adult #Mystery, #Thriller, #Suspense-- I love my dark mysteries and thrillers along the lines of Tana French. I will never do a #MSWL without Tana French's name. Ever. I've read a ton of Ruth Ware this year, and loved it all.
James McGowan @jamerrsonHey- I've been reading a bunch of mg lately, and I did a thing. As of 1 minute ago, I'm now open to select middle grade! I'm looking for both contemporary and humorous #middlegrade fiction. Query me here: QueryMe.Online/jmcgowan #mg #MSWL
I'd love to find two types of #middlegrade fiction: books ala Jason Reynolds and Margaret Finnegan's upcoming WE COULD BE HEROES. #mg
and books that make me laugh out loud, like Aaron Blabey, and fan favorites Wimpy Kid, Dog Man. #MSWL
