Moe Ferrara @inthesestonesSpent the morning walking around Oxford Street - AKA the Gay Golden Mile that started in the 70s and 80s. #SydneyAdventure @ Taylor Square, Sydney instagram.com/p/BmfEPLlj_-c/…
Which the reminder to send me all the LGBT+ books for MG and YA once I reopen for queries in September! #MSWL
Carrie Lofty @carrieloftyAuthors, I'm on the hunt for gentle bruisers.
That scary mofo coming at you in a dark alley? He’s an amazing lover & will make you breakfast just after he breaks some guy’s face. Any subgenre. If contemp I'm a big fan of @MollyOKwrites & @Charlotte_Stein.
And you'll make me positively SWOON if there are PoC and/or LGBTQ+ protagonists!! #MSWL
I'll let the agents @bookendslit pipe in, but for me, I want to see transgender & nonbinary protagonists & characters in adult fiction who are just people, living their normal lives & that it's not about being LGBTQ or other because they are just being. #MSWL
I'm now open to submissions! Looking for YA & adult sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction, especially #ownvoices/queer/feminist stories and graphic novels for all ages and across genres.
Send your query letter + first 5 pages to: tkawar at icmpartners dot com. #MSWL
please please please send me all these incredible, literally toe-curling ideas on #MuslimSquadWL b/c we need stories about *all* kind of muslims—about swashbuckling pirates or primadonnas or regular people w/ *quiet* stories, poc/queer/disabled/neuroatypical or otherwise! #MSWL
The WB revivals make me want a story that's Dawson's Creek except about Jen, who recovered from being abused and slut-shamed and cast out of her family to 'lose' a love triangle and then discover her strongest relationships could be with her grandmother and some gay friends #MSWL
bread fraud @tanklesbianlisten to me. listen. you can just not include homophobia in your fantasy worldbuilding. it can just not be a thing. you don't have to provide justification for it. you can just have some gay characters living their lives without being persecuted. a revolutionary concept
PLEASE DO THIS! So tired of the queerness in a manuscript being seen as “odd” #mswl
