I’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.

I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl

#mswl: be it contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, let's see sex positivity.

Give me a character whose sexual feelings are a crucial part of but not the entirety of her identity. I want characters who enjoy sex bc hey it feels good & sex scenes that don't necessarily have emotional import!
