#PB Timeless picture books, especially w/ a new format or approach. Unexplored topics, new perspectives, exceptional writing, true-to-life characters. Kid-facing, non-didactic, empowering, authentic, award-worthy.
Also fun, quirky, and funny picture books!

Always voice driven, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking... Characters are key for me! I can fix a plot. ๐Ÿค“ I am not great with genre fiction, though there are exceptions if the writing is irresistible to me.

For MG I'm interested in finding a high concept fantasy adventure, or a funny heart-warming narrative. I'm always on the look out for writing from underrepresented voices and so please do get in touch with your stories. 2/3

Bad romance.

Make it so bad, it's funny.

I want to cringe (and relate only too well).

#Horror Novels that explore personal difficulties (caring for an aging parent, feeling like an outsider, addiction, grief, etc.) via a speculative lens.

Or funny-yet-scary #Horror stories that are pure entertainment.

Gore is great. Bring on the blood! ๐Ÿฉธ3/?

#MSWL Remember the movie Warm Bodies? Well I want that but with Vampires instead of Zombies. Not pining Edward and submissive Bella, give me funny, regretful but also okay with himself vamp meets kick-butt heroine who's his match because she outmatches him.

#MSWL An MG ghost story that leans heavily into the fun and funny and not the scary. While I'm always open to MG horror, I'm looking not so much for chills in this wishlist item.

GN: absurd, funny MG; fantasy/spec like This Was Our Pact; YA like The Prince and the Dressmaker, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up..., Genderqueer, Go with the Flow, The Magic Fish, beautiful coming-of-age like This One Summer that lingers w/you but make it all gay gay gay. 5/6

I downloaded Threads like everyone else but am not so sure what to do about it professionally since my Threads name is my personal Instagram account lol

Anyway, a new #MSWL for you! Young YA. Protagonists ages 13-15. Bonus points if illustrated and funny!

#MSWL YA fantasy that isn't "dark". Dare I say fun, maybe funny? Something that feels bright? Still has to have a solid hook and story problem to solve.

I tend toward upper MG, and love fantasy and contemporary narratives, but voice is the most important element for me in this age category. I want funny/quirky/snarky MG voices, something really strong that hooks you in immediately.

All types, ages, and subgenres of horror. Looking for the whole spectrum: quiet atmospheric stories, darkly funny horror comedies, and big, over the top slashers. This is the main genre Iโ€™m looking for in MG!
