Stephanie Kim @stephaniemkimCould someone please write me a BTS-inspired YA rom-com? My query inbox is open: newleafliterary.com/submissions/
I am very excited to announce that I am officially open for queries! I’m mainly hunting for whimsical MGs, transporting YAs, and select NF. There are some specific things I’d love to see so check out my #mswl for more details
RN, I'm craving a YA/Adult romance with a male love interest who OOZES charm and charisma. Nothing else, just those vibes of being irresistible af and leaning into it. Please give me your Henry Montagues, Ian Flannerys, Jesper Faheys, and yes, even Jace Waylands. #MSWL
Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL
Of course I rep a lot of amazing YA fantasy authors and always love YA fantasy, and am especially excited to find fantasy that totally upends my expectations, contemporary fantasy, and contained fantasy (a la a fantasy set on a cruise kind of thing). #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappHard to understand how it'll be August on the other side of the weekend, but nonetheless! I am excited to catch up on all the reading in August and am on the hunt for some exciting projects to sell this fall. A #MSWL thread...
The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl
The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix
The next HELLO GIRLS remains on the top of my #MSWL, but as I consider endless, emotional, meaningful platonic love and the types of female friendships that are ride or die in the way my own have been—especially as teens, in high school, in YA—let's add BOOKSMART as an example.
I love the quirkiness and humor and vibes of TAZ (The Adventure Zone) so much. So if someone wants to send me a YA about a bunch of friends doing their actual play/gaming podcast and just living their best lives I would be forever in your debt. #mswl
Agent pals! I am hungry for new, exciting acquisitions. I'm actively looking for... #MSWL
✨ horror, horror, HORROR. MG & YA. Campy, psychological, gothic, you name it. Yes I just watched the #FearStreet trilogy and loved it!
