beth phelan @beth_phelanIt’s my last weekend to get caught up before i open to queries on April 12!
I’ve responded to almost all outstanding queries (email me if you’re still waiting--i missed it) but still catching up on requested fulls (please keep being patient)!
First thing to note is that I only represent MG and YA. I love every genre from light contemporary to high fantasy and everything in between. I don’t represent artists or graphic novelists and don’t typically represent verse.
This week has felt like a year, so please send me some fun contemporary! Give me all the MG and YA goofiness that makes me giggle and gives me all the feels. I’m ready to open my inbox and smile🥰 #MSWL
