Amy Trueblood grew up in Southern California only ten minutes from Disneyland which sparked an early interest in storytelling.

Her debut, Nothing But Sky was a Spring 2018 Junior Library Guild selection. Her second novel, Across a Broken Shore, also a JLG selection, was recently selected by ALA as a 2020 Best Feminist Book in Children’s Literature and won the Gold Medal for Historical Fiction in the Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Fueled by iced tea and a good Spotify playlist, you can often find Amy settled in a quiet corner at her local coffee shop plotting her next book

There is nothing better than having a small nugget of an idea and slowly letting it build until it is a full blown story. It's amazing to me how something so small can build into something beautiful.

QUITE THE QUERY: Remember Me, Archie (MG Contemporary w/Fantasy Elements)

 


 



 


Today I’m sharing my friend, Ryan Dalton’s successful MG query. I love how Ryan has done a really effective job of detailing the story while still giving it a jab of emotion. After reading, it’s easy to see why he connected with his agent. This book would later go on to get a deal with Lerner Books.


 


Archie Reese’s fondest memories are of sharing stories with his grandfather. So when
