MG

And I always have room for more brilliantly crafted middle grade. My big loves are contemporary, historical fiction and magical realism. #mswl

This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl

I need an MG that is like AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER. #MSWL

Also, I just saw the trailer for Bird Box with Sandra Bullock and I will totally be all about that comp title for any incoming YA or MG manuscripts. #MSWL

5) Send me your quiet, lyrical magic. Your tales of discovery and wonder. Give me a MG bedtime story that paints my dreams. #MSWL

3) Send me your intelligent absurdists, your Monty Pythons and Terry Pratchetts for MG. Make my brain giggle. Fart jokes need not apply. #MSWL

2) I have two different laughs: the snort and the guffaw. The snort is easy. I want an MG that makes me guffaw. #MSWL

Day 20 of #25DaysofMSWL: I am obsessed with HILDA. So give me fun adventures with a fantasy twist in MG and MG GN. #MSWL

AN #MSWL UPDATE:

I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.

... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)

Was talking to an editor today and we both agreed that we desperately want some hilarious girl books for MG, like Diary of A Wimpy Kid for girls instead of boys. #MSWL because this would be boss and there’s a need for it.

This, in realistic (or realistic with a twist) YA/MG! Also, repeating #mswl for murky "would you really make the right choice?" stories a la Passengers

Just had a talk with one of my beloved editor friends and we’re both dying for some WOLVES. Not werewolves, but like Game of Thrones wolves in YA or MG. WHO HAS THIS? Because we need it. Desperately. #MSWL

Day 1 of #25DaysofMSWL: I would love to see a YA or MG with roller derby. #MSWL

I love the idea that magic could be lurking in our world, if only we knew where to look. Have such a story (PB, MG, YA, adult speculative/horror)? Please send it my way! #MSWL
