Liesa Abrams @BatgirlEditor

This morning I had my first meeting to present my goals and strategy for the Labyrinth Road imprint. So exciting! My acquisitions so far have lined up perfectly with those goals. And as a reminder to agents:

My #mswl remains especially focused on epic, character-driven MG series w/ big stakes both personal and external; I’m still looking for more intersectional identity representation, particularly across race & ethnicity & sexuality & gender. Keep those submissions coming!

I am really craving some laugh-out-loud children's books. I want to see hilarious picture books, side-splitting chapter books and MG, and funny, cute YA. Also includes graphic novels!

I'd love to see some more #adult projects in my inbox. #speculative, #contemporary, #historical, #romcom--I'm open to almost ANYTHING, but looking for a great hook & great voice. Something that I'll have hard time putting down #mswl #a (still also looking for #MG & #YA)

I am obsessed with houses born bad. I'd love to see more ghost stories (MG and adult) with a house as a major character! #mswl

Just re-watched Akeelah and the Bee and remembered how much I LOVED it as a child. Like, 10 yo me could not stop saying "pulchritude." It has its problems, but its hopeful message and diverse cast are things I NEED RIGHT NOW. If you have MG like this, please give it to me #mswl

I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #mswl
