Ya contemporary

Shari Maurer is currently seeking contemporary & historical YA and MG (no fantasy, please), and picture books. She's drawn to characters who have passion and grit, and would love to see stories that have humor, social justice, and suspense --not necessarily all in the same book!

I nudged Shari with an offer and she said she's on vacation right now, so if it's August 2021 and you haven't heard back from her yet, that's probably why!

Asked for two weeks because I had other requests out. Received multiple offers, but ultimately SUPER STOKED to sign with Shari. Man, I've been waiting a long time to write this comment. Years and years, friends. Remember: professional writers are amateurs who didn't quit.

Submitted a query via Query Manager on January 19
Full request received on January 25 and submitted that same day
Kind rejection received on March 8

She said this one was really close for her--she loved the MC and called the manuscript a beautiful book--but in the end, it was a pass. I appreciate the rejections that make you feel like you might have a chance with someone else.
