Danielle be looking at: 

Young Adult (YA) and Middle Grade (MG) works, across all genres including graphic novel formats! 

Examples of what she likes to read and could possibly be looking for; Danielle has a background as a book blogger, so she's quite literally an open book when it comes to celebrating and discussing her reading habits on her blog – Alpha Reader – and also through her opinion writing

Certainly some more manuscripts she'd love to read would include; 

 * A powerful verse-novel with a strong point of view and story elements (think; Kwame Alexander, Sarah Crossan, Ellen Hopkins, and Steven Herrick). 

 * An assured short-story collection or a story told in vignettes (think; Margo Lanagan, Sandra Cisneros, Kelly Link and Karen Russell) 

 * A graphic novel – in this, she’d be open to anything for YA or MG readers (but in the past she has loved; Through the Woods by Emily Carroll, El Deafo by Cece Bell, Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, and This One Summer Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki).

Danielle will take 5 minute verbal pitches at CYA Conference in 2018
