Diverse

Hot on my list for #mswl are #ownvoice contemporaries featuring diverse characters.

Honestly, so much is just not being told yet that there's such a wide variety of diverse stories I just can't say I want till it shows up on my door. Best thing of course is a great story, well written. #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · 12 Sep 2018

And as far as diversity goes, I am particularly seeking new authors of color and indigenous authors. #MSWL

We are still actively seeking contemporary Native American narratives for MG & YA, novel and graphic novel. I'd also love more books about black girls/by black women.

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl

I want diversity always. Any kind of diversity you have I want. #MSWL

Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL #MG please. No high fantasy, horror, sci fi but otherwise I will be open to (end of Sept), especially to #diverse voices, strong hooks, compelling plot, amazing characters. Even better if humor laced throughout drama or drama laced throughout humor.

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

Time to share my #MSWL! For SFF: Black Mirror-esque thrillers that imagine the dark and twisted places tech could take us. My fave eps were "Nosedive" and "Men Against Fire." Also want fantasies built on myths and legends, especially from diverse cultures.

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

For adult fiction, I’d love cozy mysteries with a unique spin. Send me dark fantasy, epic fantasy…actually…just send me all the fantasy!!! I’d also like sci-fi with a science slant instead of aliens or a Star Wars remake. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 3/4

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

I’d like to see some high concept YA projects. Hook me with a YA contemporary that hasn’t been done before. Show me a unique SFF world with a different kind of journey—something unpredictable! I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 2/4

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

I’m looking for MG projects, especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror, & contemporary. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. Make me remember the magic of being a kid. I’d love to see characters dealing with their first crush, first period, and realistic everyday drama. #MSWL 1/4

Kat Enright @katenright · 12 Sep 2018

Let's move on to Adult SFF, shall we? I'd love to see more exciting, diverse fantasy. Spare me your Tolkien-esque worlds, and give me new settings. I'd love to see fantasy inspired by different time periods and cultures. #MSWL

Sarah E. Younger @seyitsme · 12 Sep 2018
