My Manuscript Wish List®

I’m looking for picture books, middle grade, and young adult works.

Gimme Gimme Gimme:

  • I’m really searching for non-fiction picture books that add the heart, soul, and story of fiction. I want the person, event, retelling to come to life.
  • I’m also really interested in Asian/African/Latin mythology retelling/twists to be told simply yet beautifully for the picture book market but also in more depth with adventure and turn-the-page tension for middle grade and young adult.
  • Have a picture book that’ll make me laugh? Learn? Both? Yes, please.
  • I want more smart, ingenious kids who utilize STEM to tackle their problems/achieve their goals.
  • I want to fall in-love with a YA contemporary romcom. Make me swoon, cry, and yell at the pages with all the depth and complexity that our young adults experience today.
  • Have a MG or YA SFF? Needs to have a strong voice from the first page with an immersive and captivating plot and world.
  • Where are my #ownvoices, diverse, underrepresented, kickass authors? Send me your work.

What I’m Not Looking For:

  • Previously published work
  • Novellas
