I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
#MSWL: On the hunt for some non-fiction! I'm a huge fan of pop culture (I worked with actors for 8 years and am an avid television fan), true crime (no mobs or cartels), and books about mental health (I recently read On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety which I related to A LOT).
Those who know me know I’m a sucker for a beautifully-conjured sense of place. My heart broke to see #NotreDame in flames, so this week’s wish is for stories that conjure the places, large and small, famous and not, that we each hold dear. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday
Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL
Watched #ThePerfectDate yesterday and now I want a YA romcom based on a relationship where one person is paid for platonic lessons on how to not be awkward/how to talk on a date but then THEY fall in love. Like Hitch, but Will Smith and Kevin James fall in love instead #mswl
chatting panels w/the brilliant @CarolinePerny and it occurs to me I crave a WOC take on the basic Hulk trope that plays with how complicated it is to be angry as a WOC, especially a BWOC. that gives permission for fury & recognizes that yeah, you're always fucking angry. #MSWL
beth phelan (semi-hiatus & closed to queries) @beth_phelananyway, if anyone out there ever wanted to shine another light on these things, hit me up. i’m slowly trying to be open about this stuff.
....this is also on my eternal #mswl

“High stakes heists, with interesting complicated criminals and the heat of the chase – thrill me! Something like the adult version of DEATH PREFERS BLONDES.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Stuart Laws @thisstuartlawsAt a cafe, empty tables everywhere, a woman moved all the dirty plates and cups from her table to another, that another woman is sat at. I'm absolutely buzzing about where this is headed.
#mswl x one million ahhhh but seriously!!
