Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL
I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappHard to understand how it'll be August on the other side of the weekend, but nonetheless! I am excited to catch up on all the reading in August and am on the hunt for some exciting projects to sell this fall. A #MSWL thread...
The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl
I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk for a while, but I just devoured half of @dakadh’s HIDE AND SEEKER, & y’all! This is what I mean when I say I want scary MG! It is not gently spooky; it is visceral! It’s scary! It’s the book my morbid childhood self would’ve loved! #MSWL
I'm open for queries and updated my website with a new #MSWL, focusing on author-illo board books and chapter books; picture books and middle grade (fiction and non-fiction):
Agent pals! I am hungry for new, exciting acquisitions. I'm actively looking for... #MSWL
✨ horror, horror, HORROR. MG & YA. Campy, psychological, gothic, you name it. Yes I just watched the #FearStreet trilogy and loved it!
✨ Twisty YA thrillers with diverse casts
- contemporary, joyful, humorous slice-of-life stories about marginalized characters and their middle school problems
- commercial light fantasy adventures with extraordinary heart
- sister stories, competitor-turned-friend narratives, first crushes
Elizabeth Lee @EleeReadsI have some exciting news to share! Today is my last day at FSG because . . . I am so thrilled to be joining Penguin Workshop as Editor!!
I'll be acquiring MG, YA, and the select PB -- look out for my MSWL in a few days. :) pic.twitter.com/1kV3YH5leO
As a female engineer I am looking for middle grade, YA and PB about girls in STEM. All genres. Who achieve their goals thru bravery and not necessarily confidence. I want some real models not role models for our young women. #mswl #WritingCommnunity
Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenETo my friends in children’s publishing, I highly recommend having friends in education who will call publishing out for our failures pic.twitter.com/RMg82uh18C
I always wanted an Disney Princess character in this vein, but I’ll settle for an MG novel ❤️ #MSWL
High on my #MSWL list:
Contemporary Southern Gothic
Creepy Historical Gothic
Give me haunted manors, haunted woods, haunted histories
Add a dash of magic, even better!!
More YA urban fantasy
MG adventure and mystery and puzzles to solve
GN for MG and YA
