Idk who's been checking in the #MSWL tweets, but just putting it out there, for anyone who's researching and building agent lists: I will be re-opening to queries on 05/01, and want adult and YA fiction, and non-fiction. Getting there!

MG and YA body-centric books. Characters who discover a sport/activity they love, or who feel betrayed by their changing body, or who have to adapt after any kind of body change #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

It has been such a long week and all I want right now is some really soft, humorous contemporary YA with diverse characters that has the same beats as as narrative or visual novel games.

Bonus points if it's set in a coffee shop or a bookstore or a board game cafe. #MSWL

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!
