In MG, I love heart-tugging, honest voices that are either grounded or have a slight magic touch. Think Tae Keller, Karina Yan Glaser, Rebecca Stead.

It’s that time of year when fall submissions start flying, so here’s a little #MSWL thread! Big picture, I’m acquiring MG and YA novels and graphic novels in all genres and am always looking for more underrepresented voices in all categories.

Penny Moore @literarypenny

When I was a kid, I had to change elementary schools four times across different countries and states. It was difficult for me to make friends and adjust every time. I’m sure a lot of children go through this, and it’s hard because they never have control in these situations.

Often times parents have to move for work or family dynamics change in a way that requires them to be uprooted from familiar places. So I think it’d be great to see more coming-of-age MG stories about transient children, especially ones with diaspora backgrounds. #MSWL

#MSWL - I need a gripping, chilling YA mystery. A laugh out loud MG. And some striking voices!

And I’d LOVE a great upmarket adult mystery or romantic suspense!

Angsty, harsher stories--romance or otherwise--because I've got lots of pent up pandemic frustration that needs an outlet! Maybe it's time for me to explore thrillers? 🧐 #MSWL
