Bold, big, bonkers books for younger readers – I’d particularly love to see graphic novels and illustrated books for the 7-9 readership but any big funny stories here are also brilliant #MSWL
MG: This is the area I'd most like to expand!
YA: My first love! I'm always looking for YA that stands out.
Select adult SFF & horror.
Always open to author-illustrators & graphic novels. Plus @DanieleDHunter & I LOVE novels-in-verse! We tend toward lyrical writing generally.
And here’s some specific #MSWL items:
- Contemporary MG in the vein of Corey Ann Haydu and Tae Keller
- YA romcoms
- MG and YA graphic novels, especially from BIPOC author-illustrators
- Native voices, especially from the Pacific Northwest or Inland Northwest
The categories I’m looking for, in order of priority, are:
- YA and MG graphic novels from author-illustrators (one person)
- Nonfiction for kids and teens
- Chapter books and picture books from author-illustrators (one person)
If I missed your #LatinxPitch, send query & 1st 5 pages to: QueryManager.com/QueryLynnetteN… #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. #YA: thriller, horror, SFF, mystery, & cont. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #PB #diversity #MSWL #BVM #illustrators
Graphic “Novel” #MSWL
🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror
Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).
Putting this out in the world: I love big “look books” like this & I would love to do one by a BIPOC illustrator focusing on a BIPOC community. If you’re such an illustrator & you love character, scenes, & details, hit me up! #mswl
I’m excited to find author/illustrated picture books, and non-fiction picture book manuscripts, especially ones about people and moments we should know about but don’t. #MSWL

Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:
My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.
I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.
