I am still very much on the hunt from MG and YA non-fiction! I am always on the hunt for great queer books of all ages and I would love to add some more queer illustrators to my list! #MSWL

@stephlystein Is there anything you’ve really yearned for lately in your inbox? #okscbwichat

Always! I'm dying for some deeply emotional MG contemporary, smart MG fantasy/adventure, and a sweeping, EPIC YA romance. More of my recent wishlist items are on the hashtag #MSWL! #okscbwichat

Taking my own advice, I am asking for middle grade that will make me laugh! I've said it before, if you've got the comedic timing of Mitch Hedburg or a particularly funny art style, please send me those funny middle grades! 🤣🤣🤣 #MSWL

Soon, my clients will all either be writing or on sub, so I'm hungry to sign a new author. (Yes, I do have a few fulls to read; I'm getting to them!) I'd give my proverbial right arm for a big-hearted middle grade right now. Something a little magical, like HELLO, UNIVERSE. #MSWL

Lauren is open to queries! @laurenspieller · Mar 20

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!

💞 Also related, but I'm a sucker for contemp fantasy too! 🤸🏽‍♀️I'm a kid at heart, and to this day, I am convinced there is magic right around the corner, waiting to take me on the adventure of my life (and defeat some villians who maybe had nice hearts once upon a time) MG. #MSWL

💞 Family means everything to me and I'm a sucker for stories that feature big, multigenerational, immigrant families. 🎁 Have a story that has a treasure trove of family history? 💫 Bonus points for multilingual households and prose that keeps me up at night. YA or MG. #MSWL

💐 Nowruz mubarak everyone 💐
In these times, it's important to find the things that bring you joy. And nothing brings me more joy than getting lost in a new story. #MSWL thread 👇🏽

💫 Nowruz/Sale Now 💫 has always felt so magical to me. It reminds me of new beginnings, of spring overcoming darkness, of the feeling of change just beyond the horizon.
Have something that captures this feeling? I want it. 👀 Bonus points for humor and romance. YA or MG.
