Sam B. Farkas @SamBFarkasHi! Since I am now open to queries, I'm going to do a #MSWL thread. I'm open to most categories and genres (see our website for details), but I'm especially eager for the following:
Adult Historical Fiction.
Think Kate Quinn or Alice Hoffman -- upmarket book club fiction that brings history to life.
Favorites: WATER FOR ELEPHANTS by Sara Gruen; THE HUNTRESS by Kate Quinn; THE DOVEKEEPERS by Alice Hoffman; I SHALL BE NEAR TO YOU by Erin Lindsay McCabe #MSWL
I am technically closed to submissions right now, but I can't get over how challenging it was for one of our pubs to find an African/diaspora picture book artist (they didn't). So now my door is wide open to African artists because that is frankly absurd. #MSWL #kidlit #art
For my current #MSWL click on the picture to see all the details. You can also always find my most recent manuscript wishlist on the Triada US website.

This is wildly wrongheaded. In light of this, I’d be really happy to see MG BIPOC twists on THE WIZARD OF OZ & THE SECRET GARDEN in my query box. #MSWL
I got my hair cut today and there was a tiny, precious 4-year-old boy getting his hair cut at the station next to me. Stylist said he keeps a stuffed animal around for the boys because the clippers scare them.🥺
Long story short, I NEED to rep a "first hair cut" PB.💈#MSWL
Just putting this out there. I’d love to take on a literary YA author this year. Think @JasonReynolds83 meets @nina_lacour , or something totally different! Just as long the story is beautiful and fresh and MATTERS. #mswl
