Watching the ONE PIECE live action and I can’t stop thinking about an MG version. Luffy is just such a happy-go-lucky character 🥰

In my pursuit of a graphic novel for a reluctant middle grade reader I realized that there is a shortage of MG horror graphic novels that are RECENT, so with that in mind when I reopen to queries I want that - preferably with an illustrator already attached. Okay, bye! #MSWL

I’ve been super into MG lately & would love to see:

Mascot horror. Eldritch horror. Atmospheric folk horror. Creepypasta/SCO Foundation horror.

Poppy Playtime. FNaF. Something that pushes the boundaries. Something kids would stumble upon on the iPad & be obsessed with.

Check out my website for more info. But the above has me really excited! I'm hoping to build my MG, YA, & adult list. PBs, I love you, but my list is pretty heavy there. I'm only looking for particular subject matter / BIPOC author & illustrator #MSWL

For a super detailed #MSWL check out my website: careyblankenshipkramer.com/agenting.html. Let's start with a really good, ol' fashioned haunted house story from a BIPOC author. Kidlit or adult! Also, where are my MG kiddos being chased by ghosts? I love those and want to see more in my inbox!

I feel like my picks have most been adult SFF, which I *love* btw, but I also really want to have some YA & MG on my list

#MSWL I'm a sucker for epic, historical feeling fantasy worlds, but I'd love to see more epic, modern feeling secondary fantasy worlds and worlds that gorgeously blend historical & modern too!

High stakes & romance get my attention well. MG, YA, Adult/New Adult all welcome!

#MG Commercial hooks, literary voice. Unique characters, smart characters who mistakes but learn and overcome their primary flaw. MG voice a must.

#MSWL In MG in particular, I'd love to see more urban fantasy adventures like Percy Jackson featuring casts of really loveable characters in really epic situations.

Upper MG, YA crossover, and YA like LEGENDBORN is definitely welcome too!

OK here's a free idea from my personal wishlist: a middle grade or YA graphic novel about drama and infighting in a school choir. Doesn't that sound delicious?

Brought to you by someone who got kicked out of sixth grade choir for having an "attitude problem"

#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

#MSWL In YA (& MG), more "study/adventures abroad" books featuring teens in non-American locations, especially if the locations are non-Western and the stories star really robust casts of BIPOC characters.

📚 OGNs: I'm primarily looking for MG/YA graphic novels (preference for author/illustrator, but open to author-only!) As far as what I'm looking for, everything above applies here!
