/_\! @babakganooshWhy hasn’t anyone ever made a police procedural that takes place in an action movie universe? Like the detectives are investigating the criminals at the same time the vigilante is murdering them by the dozen to avenge his family.
If you can find a way to make this MG or YA, consider this on my #mswl
Camryn Garrett @dancingofpensGive me coming of age movies where black girls get to be horrible and funny like in LADY BIRD or where they get to be weird and funny like in BOOKSMART or where they get to be cute and fall in love like in TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE
I don’t make movies, but I do make books & I’m very much looking for this in MG & YA #mswl
While I’m more partial to (keylime and apple) pie than pi, I sure do love a fun math book that might have had me loving math more as a kid. In honor of Pi Day tomorrow, I'd love something like BEDTIME MATH or for MG like MISCALCULATIONS OF LIGHTNING GIRL #WishlistWednesday #MSWL
I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:
Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
I’d love to see more #ownvoices and #diversity MG and YA queries. Paste query and first five pages in body of email and send to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #writingcommmunity #amquerying #MSWL
Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!
- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny
To kick off the First #FeelGoodFriday: 11-Year-old Girl Has Been Granting the Simple Wishes of Nursing Home Patients! This would be a sweet MG book too wouldn't it? #MSWL #intergenerational @Ludington this reminds me of your grandparents event Sunday! goodnewsnetwork.org/11-year-old-gi…
I get a lot of great queries from marginalized voices (thank you, keep them coming!!), and one gap I've noticed is characters with disabilities. Define that however you choose, but I want to see more of this kind of representation in kidlit, and on my list specifically. #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickHellooo #amwriting friends, I am looking to sign new authors, so here's a #MSWL thread. (And for new followers, please note I'm only seeking books for the kidlit market at present).
As a colleague pointed out to me, you can find truth in tragedy, but you can also find truth in joy. I'd love to see YA and MG that find truth in joy. Give me your funny books, effervescent love stories, your joyous and triumphant journeys, adventures, relationships. #MSWL
Lianne Leslie @themba2day@BookEndsJessica @bookendslit What are the current trends in middle grade fictional series genre and what would you like to see more of or read personally if you were looking at chapter books for middle grade? #askagent
Me personally, I'm always looking for MG contemporary and fantasy genres. I'd really love to find my creepy coraline-esque book as well as a first crush LGBT book (a la the animated short 'In a Heartbeat') #AskAgent #MSWL
