Heading into fall (my favorite season!), I am excited to find fantastic new books to fall in love with in my submissions pile. Here’s what I’m eager to see… a #mswl thread:

First and foremost: MIDDLE GRADE. I am extremely hungry for a big middle grade series with stellar world building, cool magic, and a strong emotional core. I love my middle grade with lots of heart that works hand-in-hand with the high stakes adventure. #mswl

One of my dream #MSWL items is an adventure novel that reads like a film like FREE SOLO or THE BARKLEY MARATHONS feels. An edge-of-your-seat outdoors story with near-superhuman athleticism. I’ve spent all of quar hiking & watching ALONE so I’ve had too much time to dwell on this.

For MG fiction, my interests fall heavily on the action-adventure scale, especially stories informed by non-western mythology and folklore. Loud and funny is a better fit than quiet and contemplative. In nonfiction, I love topics that kids—and I—can geek out about.

I'm really craving stories where the setting is the main focus. Very atmospheric and spooky. A sense of place. Or setting's that feel like home. Dripping with culture. If you can make an epic mood board for your book, I want it. #MSWL

To add to that. Boarding schools, haunted houses, creepy forests, swamps, dark caves, hellscapes, small-town adventures, underrepresented cultures, myths, and folklore based on places, clubs, secret societies, organizations. Places and communities that come alive at night. #MSWL

#MSWL alert: I am VERY HUNGRY for middle grade projects right now! Fun MG mysteries, adventures, spooky paranormal, inventive fresh grounded fantasy, especially from folks from traditionally marginalized groups. #MG #paranormal #ownvoices #fantasy #mystery #adventure
