To keep going on my earlier tweet, I LOVE all shades of MG! The quieter, simpler prose stories and the long, whimsical books that are for the big readers! Both are so welcome in my inbox ๐Ÿฅฐ all genres! #MSWL

I hear this. I think a lot of us who work in publishing were keen readers as children and have carried the assumption forward that middle-grade = in the vein of Philip Pullman! But I'm hearing more & more that the younger end of MG needs to be fleshed out and... 1/2

twitter.com/StorySorcery/status/1774164372660588952

... we have to listen to those who work directly with kids today. (I think 'teen' is another problem area but that's another story!) I'd love to see more MG stories in my inbox in the 30-40k range with simpler prose - without skimping on the interest level. #MSWL 2/2

I'm still not the best fit for SF (aside from 5-min in the future/grounded SF or the aforementioned horror), or books that are sports-centric or where MC is an athlete. I'm not open to adult fiction (for now), poetry/novels-in-verse, non-fiction, picture books, early readers.

Another #mswl I've been wanting to find forEVER is a genre-blended YA sci-fi/horror akin to Alien (or even The Thing I think would count). Atmospheric, not super tech heavy, isolated, far from home, trapped with an extraterrestrial horror. Those kinda vibes.
