Last few hours to get queries in to me before I close at midnight. My current #mswl can be found in my banner 🎉
What I’m not the best fit for:
•I do not currently represent New Adult or Adult
•I am currently not the best fit for text-only PBs or text-only GNs
•Pirates, time-travel, and stories that focus on teaching a lesson
In MG & YA (incl GNs by Author-Illustrators):
•Diverse contemporary stories and romcoms
•Grounded sub-genres like horror or mysteries
•Novels by marginalized writers w/ stories yet told
•Stories that take you on an adventure and an emotional roller coaster all at once
In PBs from Author-Illustrators:
•Thought-provoking or entertaining stories that aren’t focused on teaching a lesson
•Slice of life moments with unique characters told through a kid-centric-POV
•Marginalized voices that allow the reader to feel seen
•Well-thought-out portfolios w/ interconnected illustrations that accurately represent our diverse world
•Artists w/ an easily recognizable signature look
•Images that emit emotion and make me laugh or cry

I’m looking to add to my list of passionate authors & illustrators who love & believe in the art of storytelling.
With that, my current 2023 #MSWL: 1/7
"Psychological dramas are high on my wish-list, as are high-concept thrillers that keep me guessing. My favorite titles defy expectations and subvert stereotypes."
I’ve been doing a whole re-watch of The Amazing Race with my mom and sister, and I would absolutely love to find a romance set on a competitive reality show like TAR or Survivor or even GBBO!
Bob’s Burgers is such a comfort show for me. I’d love to see more sibling dynamics like Louise, Gene & Tina’s and more MG characters with Louise’s fearlessness, humour, and sarcasm #MSWL
One more day to get queries in before I close once again. Please see the #mswl link in my Twitter bio for what I am seeking.
J/K this is the last one: All the nonprofit books. Give me books on cultivating donor relations, fundraising, event planning, and building the ultimate board of directors. Let's change the world together!
Oh, one last request! If you are an expert in the field and have the next Never Split the Difference, send to me NOW *grabby hands*
Arts and crafts. I'm a quilter and crafter. Give me books on sewing, quilting, and other crafts. Books on how to create an Etsy/craft business would also be good.
This is a major want: give me your nonfiction emotional intelligence books. Narrative is okay IF you are a professional and have the science and research to back it up. I want the next The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F@ck. I'd also love to see an EQ book geared for teens.
