Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_While working on my shiny new website & compiling my #MSWL for 2019, I noticed one theme transcending the categories: outer space.
I’ll expand on this a bit but please note, I’m NOT open to queries at this time. By referral only.
I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019
Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
Feeling very hungry for narrative non-fiction these days! Some 2018 non-fiction I have LOVED (but not repped): Educated (duh, who didn't?), All You Can Ever Know, The Personality Brokers, The Real Lolita, I'll Be Gone In The Dark, Dead Girls, I Am I Am I Am. #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95A reminder that Julia Child was an intelligence officer for the CIA during WWII. Oh, hey, also a reminder that I would very much like a novel about this. #mswl
For January 2019 #MSWL
Sports. Sports in YA F. In YA rom. In A rom. Nonfiction if it’s exceptional but I’ll be picky here. LGBT sports. I want the female QB and the female cheer captain - OR male QB and male cheer capt!
Rashmi Sirdeshpande @RashmiWriting1/3 What do we need more of in children’s literature? - Books that better reflect society, books with varied family structures, books with quiet heroes, books that challenge gender stereotypes and toxic masculinity, and more creative, UK-grown children’s nonfiction! #GEAvember
Couldn't agree more with @RashmiWriting's thread. In these scary times these are the stories I'm looking for and what I hope children's publishing will become. We need to tell stories for every child... #MSWL
