Hello I am watching Wolf Walkers and if you are creating a graphic novel for MG readers with this vibe and art, we really need to talk. #mswl

Would love to find more speculative fiction that verges on horror, whether adult, MG or YA #MSWL

Picture books with punch and heart, non-fiction with a fresh twist (especially for MG and YA!), fiction with a singular voice and fierce energy. Relevant, resonant, and smart.

In Middle Grade: Stories that are lyrical and on the more literary range of the spectrum. #MSWL 7/7

Also #amquerying really looking for *grounded* SF&F right now—MG, YA, A.
✨Usually not the right match for high fantasy.
✨Love to be based in myth/folklore/etc.
✨Love to be grounded with a clear emotional arc.
✨My tastes tend quite literary for Adult.

I will not be content until I have a contemporary series like this on my own middle grade list! Desperately seeking the real-life drama of frenemies, first crushes, and exploring self-identity/expression for 10-year-olds.

I would love some brilliant, atmospheric YA horror that is reminiscent of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE or a slasher like SCREAM.

I've also become a fan of novels-in-verse across middle grade and YA.

And I'd love to add a few more graphic novels to my list across all ages! #mswl

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!
