Tia Rose Mele (Closed to Queries) @TiatheTigerI watched Expedition Amelia last night and Amelia Earhart was SO. COOL.
She wrote a letter to her soon to be husband that basically said “I’m marrying you even though I don’t want to, and it’s fine if you want to see other people, and I don’t want to stop working”
#mswl I reopen to queries on Monday and if your book has Amelia Earhart energy I definitely want it ty
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeSo it's 2020 and I need more books so #MSWL pic.twitter.com/ZjqixMORcp
These are some of my top needs (from the graphic):
-MG and YA graphic novels
-Mermaids. *I know what I want so I will know when I see it*
-Elegant Horror. (what does this mean, Natascha? Think THE GRACE YEAR, THE HAZELWOOD, WILDER GIRLS) #MSWL
For more about me and the books I publish, follow me #onhere or visit my (slightly outdated) website, GraceKendallBooks.com. FSG has a Facebook page you should check out, and definitely follow all our gorgeous books at @MacKidsBooks, @FierceReads & @MacKidsSL (fin)
If your project connects with any of these topics, I hope your agent will consider submitting it to me this year! And yes, I’m only open to agented submissions, or submissions from attendees of conferences that I’m visiting.)
-all ages and genres with an eye toward the topics above. Especially STEAM elements (I love *seeing* things explained) and coming-of-age stories.
-currently reading and loving Jen Wang, Vera Brosgol, Kat Fajardo, Alice Oseman, and many more
-***THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING WE MUST CHANGE OURSELVES***
-juicy love story across power/privilege axes (which interrogates that power)
-again, joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center teens from marginalized backgrounds
-plot-heavy, pace-y historical fiction
-**we can fight climate change y’all**
-queer MC on an adventure, heist, terrible sports team etc (tho plot not necessarily about their queerness)
-joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center kids from marginalized backgrounds
-dogs, horses & sassycats (3/7)
-climate change exists! (a gentle introduction)
-PB bios featuring STEM/STEAM subjects
-queer princess adventure
-commercial character-driven pb (w/ series potential) featuring kid from historically marginalized background
HAPPY 2020 Y’ALL!
For agents and conference attendees I will meet with this year (@kwelijournal @scbwisf), I put together my rough #MSWL for the year. These aren’t the only things I want, just projects I’m particularly hungry for....
I’m actively seeking submissions in:
Mystery, Crime, Thriller
Humorous middle grade fiction
Middle grade non-fiction
All picture books (fiction & non-fiction)
I'm looking mostly for mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket and literary fiction. I'd also love more women's fiction. I want more stories like Whisper Network, My Sister the Serial Killer, and Bright River to name a few. #MSWL
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksHey writer friends! I’m at nearly 250 queries since reopening on Monday.
I’m reading every single one, but apologies in advance if it takes me a minute. Keep them coming. ❤️ twitter.com/psliterary/sta…
Like I said earlier in the week, I’m really eager to find more adult fiction (especially genre blends) and non-fiction of all kinds.
My post with my #MSWL is here. Query away! ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2…
