Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

for RRP MG, i want snarky, funny, action-adventure 📚 featuring young BIPOC & deeply rooted in ✨mythology & magic ✨

here too i'd love to see even more intersectional protagonists & stories that subvert the typical RRP formula, like the upcoming SERWA BOATENG! (4/6)

I'm in the mood for MG! Please send me something spooky, send me something funny, send me something full of adventure, send me something that makes me think. And as always, would love to see subs by marginalized creators across genres. Ready to fall in love with some MG! #MSWL

I’m really craving joyful and funny stories at the moment. Would love to see more in my queries, particularly from marginalised voices. Romance, friendships, adventure, all with a side of LOL. #mswl

#mswl I am looking for middle-grade mystery. Mysteries were one of my fav things to read and watch as a kid. Take me back to The Goonies and Encyclopedia Brown with mystery, adventure, friendship, and an element finding yourself.

#mswl Would also love a mg or ya adventure or mystery set in the OBX. Plus pirates would be great. Own voices A-A male or female protagonists would be ah-may-zing.

1. Madcap adventures in any genre
