I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)

I've given my #MSWL a freshening up now that I'm an agent! Find out what I'm looking for on my profile and keep an eye out for my #MSWL tweets!

Also #MSWL:
- Psychological thrillers with romantic elements
- Cozy Mysteries (think @HallmarkPublish style)
- Rom Coms
- Small town romances with strong community ties and series potential
- Holiday romances
- Picture books with a great story, no rhyming ones at the moment.

As a little girl who went on to take ballet for 18 years, Angelina spoke right to my heart. I pored over the illustrations for HOURS. I'll be interested to see the reissues, & I'm excited a new generation of dancers is about to get inspired.


On that note, I'd love to see a less-pink-frills-&-bows version of a kid falling in love with dance, if anyone's working on a picture book like that. Something with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. Really anything with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. 💃 #MSWL

I want to believe that stories can change hearts. I’m actively seeking stories about immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized, so please send me your graphic novels, your picture books, your YA, your MG! Love and empathy and awareness can be radical. #MSWL

Officially have my own Manuscript Wish List profile! And I already found one typo and there are certainly more which is why I will not get mad at your accidental typos in queries (we're all just people!). #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/erin…

Would do backflips for a joyful picture book about karaoke—sort of like the karaoke equivalent of HIP-HOP LOLLIPOP. 🎤♥️✨ #MSWL

Just saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…

Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.

Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.

Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!

Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.

I am officially a Junior Literary Agent with @MetamorphLitAg. To say this is a dream come true is an absolute understatement. I cannot wait to embark on this new journey.
