Humor

I would very much like a middle grade novel about the (unknown) daughter of Hades and Persephone. #MSWL (something humorous like Percy Jackson please, but obvi not set in that same world).

And now I am reminded of my love MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING and I want that but in a YA. #MSWL

OMG someone for the love of all give me this. ANY CULTURAL. But this beautiful and humorous.

YA romcoms are my jam. Always have been. I want to see more STEM, fun jobs, and unique hobbies. DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, ROYALS, and ALEX, APPROXIMATELY are perfect examples of voice, humor, and substance in contemp YA romcoms! #mswl

HUMOR, HUMOR, HUMOR. Smart and funny – I always want this, but especially in a MG novel. #MSWL

I'm looking to acquire a paranormal (romance) series featuring witches. I'm also looking for paranormal mystery (with or without some touches of humor but with definite touches of romance). Perhaps these two things could be combined? I would be cool with that! #MSWL

#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!

Some more #nonfiction interests: millennials issues (don't send me books on how we've destroyed things for babyboomers, I honestly don't care), astrology, spirituality not connected to a specific religion, old theaters (I love these), 90's music, anything humor related #MSWL

Me reading a query that promises a YA thriller, blending humor and horror, from a POC, and comps brand new media, and shows engagement with the convo within contemporary teen lit. #MSWL

For #contemporary #YA, smart, humorous, introspective first person is more likely to draw me in, but I can fall in love with a sweet, dreamy voice, too. My tolerance for sap and cliche is pretty low, so be very careful with those. #MSWL

#MSWL We're also actively seeking books for our Teen line. We love contemporary, whether it's humorous or on the darker, edgier side. Bonus points if it has a strong romantic subplot!
