I listen to too much music and read too many books, and I get to do both at work as an editor at Amberjack Publishing (my opinions, of course, are my own!).
Real talk #MSWL: Black women with other races and genders. I want a book that reflects my reality and family.
I still get surprise from older family members who learn my husband isn't Black, or that I dated a Mexican girl in middle school. We can do better than this. We must.
#MSWL Underrepresented minority and/or interracial romance, gene hacking, modernized Slavic heroic quest, characters with identities that span communities & their struggles, characters with East Asian, Slavic, and African heritage, & dark fairy tale retellings. MG, YA, Adult.
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI will be posting a thread of #MSWL items for @amberjackpub later today. -Agents- may direct subs to firstname.lastname@example.org (include SUBMISSIONS in subject line). Gentle reminder to writers that this is not a pitching contest.
Here's our official #MSWL! I'm particularly into diverse YA/Adult books, being a biracial/Black woman in an interracial relationship, so send lots our way! I'll post a few of my own personal wish list items later tonight!
