I'm still looking for a funny middle-grade novel in the vein of Rick Riordan Presents. Other comps include Ms. Marvel, ATLA, or a really gay School for Good and Evil. #MSWL

Someone send a book with a protag like Niecy Nash in Rookie: Feds! So beautiful, smart, funny, and quick witted, but also finding killers. #mswl #CrimeFiction @ABCNetwork @TheRookieFeds @NiecyNash

💕 Romance 🏳️‍🌈

Including LGBTQ+ romance, YA romance and romantic comedy. I would love an adult Heartstopper or Love Frankie, as well as rom com that is laugh-out-loud funny.

For younger readers, I want clever, funny and an immediate hook. I’m particularly interested in author/illustrators and graphic novel creators for this area, but I’d love to see them in other spaces too!

Still seeking fun, bedtime story picture books @POWkidsbooks - please! No more rhyming books, rain forest, farms, books with agendas. Picture books are an art form YOU SHOULD LOVE. Think quirky, funny, modern, sweet and emotional. Pro-tip - no board books, mg or ya #mswl

And, finally, and in perpetuity until I find it, give me a funny, commercial middle-grade mystery series told in first person by a BIPOC lead! #MSWL

Thinking of how much of my grandmother was the matriarch of my family, I’d love to see a sweet/funny middle grade novel (any genre) with a substantial grandparent-grandchild dynamic!

A #MSWL update; I'm opening the floodgates to paranormal romance. If you have a fresh take on PR (moving away from supernatural detectives and government officials preferably), I want it in my inbox. It could be funny, angsty, or somewhere in between!

Although I’m also very eager to find happy, funny stories with strong family relationships that, while not perfect, are loving and healthy for the most part.

And on the middle grade and YA side, I want funny, I want adventure, I want completely new, never-seen-before characters and settings, I want high-concept romances, lots of friendship and heart, just phenomenal stories and journeys all over🚀🌴
