#MSWL Still looking for an MG Romance Writer exploring 1st love & crushes like Natalie Blitt Carols & Crushes for MIDDLE GRADE to YA girls, 12-15yos. Yes I want something that straddles that weird line. Want them to read like Hallmark movies for kids and could go series.

#MSWL Fiction, across age groups, that explores the afterlife, but NOT set on Earth with ghosts. Think "waypoint" locations. I loved the movie "Defending Your Life," so a riff on that would be cool. But open to more settings, like an MG/YA kid ends up in the underworld.

GN: absurd, funny MG; fantasy/spec like This Was Our Pact; YA like The Prince and the Dressmaker, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up..., Genderqueer, Go with the Flow, The Magic Fish, beautiful coming-of-age like This One Summer that lingers w/you but make it all gay gay gay. 5/6

YA: coming of age romance like Last Night at the Telegraph Club or Ari & Dante w/gorgeous prose; coming of gender; atmospheric gothic (like The Handmaiden); historical/nf; mystery/thrillers like Firekeeper's Daughter or Patron Saints of Nothing; character-driven speculative. 4/6

With #queerpit approaching, I thought I'd write up a super specific super gay #MSWL . I acquire for picture books, MG, YA, graphic novels, & nonfiction for Atheneum, and I'm looking for queer esp intersectional (BIPOC, neurodivergent, disabled) and trans/NB/genderqueer voices. 1/6

YA and Middle Grade Fiction

Light-hearted, action adventure, character driven, coming of age books that can tackle big themes and doesn’t shy away from important topics. Books with romance but are romances. Thoughtful stories about character over spectacle.

I’m seriously on the hunt for a heartfelt YA in the vein of The Summer I Turned Pretty. Or the Betty, James, and August triangle from T Swizz ✨vibes✨. I do adore a holiday romance.
