In this April homestretch before closing to queries, actively seeking diverse voices across all age audiences. Would love to see contemporary and historical #ownvoices MG stories told w/ distinct voice and plenty of heart & humor. #amquerying #amwriting #weneeddiversebooks #mswl

#MSWL MG, YA, or graphic novels with this mood / setting / ambience / evocative sense of the fantastical waiting-to-happen as a jumping-off point.
Who’s going to write the great middle grade animal-POV series about the experience of wild animals while humans are in lockdown? I really need to know what the walrus in this article is up to! #mswl
I’m especially on the lookout for YA rom coms (TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE; RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE), MG contemporary (A SONG FOR A WHALE; EVENTOWN), MG historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE; PRARIE LOTUS), and graphic novels (NEW KID, LAURA DEAN) #MSWL
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoThere are so many good non-Holocaust Jewish pitches!!!
AGENTS. EDITORS. Please please try acquiring and promoting books that aren't just about mass Jewish death. Jewish kids AND non-Jewish kids deserve to see Jewish people as heroes of their own story, not just against Nazis.
Hey #DVPit folks- just a reminder - if I miss your pitch and you think we'd be a good fit, please query! I'm especially hungry for #YA #mystery, #horror, #thriller, #romcom and #MG #horror #humor #graphicnovel right now! #MSWL
And I will most assuredly miss lots of pitches today (yay kids at home!). My queries are open regardless of today's event. I'm always looking for funny, madcap adventures in MG and big sweeping escapist stories in YA (all genres, but not the bloody ones). #DVpit #MSWL
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com & mystery. #YA: thriller, SFF, horror, cont. & mystery. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
We're open to submissions! Guidelines here: cutt.ly/3yrOdYs I'm looking for voice-driven narratives across genres mainly in MG, teen and YA, series & standalone. Drawn to immersive settings. Good writing and strong characters vital. Feel-good and funny esp welcome #MSWL
A year ago today we were enjoying spring break travels with friends. Would give anything to travel again—but can do so through books! Would love a ms involving travel and unexpected adeventure. Bonus if it makes me laugh! #mswl #ya #mg #amagenting
