OwnVoices

BookEnds Literary Agency @bookendslit · Jun 23

Beth celebrated Boston #pride a couple weeks ago with this badass sign. AND here is your reminder that many agents on #TeamBookEnds are actively seeking #LGBTQ & #ownvoices representation across the genres! #query #mswl instagram.com/p/BkXxBHwh7FD/

#MSWL Someone please give me a creepy Coraline-esque MG featuring POC characters, preferably #ownvoices

I would love more thrillers and suspense, #ownvoices and otherwise, & I'm always looking for mysteries #MSWL

Give me settings outside of the United States too. #ownvoices set in India, Ireland, Indonesia... other countries too, but I was suddenly captivated by "I" #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · May 25

Everything I listed above in #ownvoices. I'm okay if it's not #ownvoices, but I would like more #diversebooks & #ownvoices across the board. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · May 25

I'm always looking for domestic suspense, especially something #ownvoices & family-related (not just husband and wife) #MSWL

-And a shoutout to siblings, family members, & support people of non-NT people. I know how much you care, how deeply you love, how powerfully you advocate and support.

And #MSWL: #ownvoices middle grade stories about non-neurotypical life in middle school, because I can only imagine what navigating those halls is like for my oldest child, and wish his peers had more empathy than judgment when witnessing his distress.

Give me the next L.J. Smith: I want your #YA sexy vampires, your Camelot-inspired witches, your Norse gods and psychic teenagers, grounded in a semi-timeless "contemporary" setting. Better yet if they're POC and #ownvoices. #mswl

@RhondaMerwarth @HallmarkPublish Does hallmark take lgbt rom?

Replying to @heykaunlay

We are definitely open to lgbt heartwarming stories of love, esp. by #ownvoices. I've tweeted a few random ideas I had on #MSWL but I'm certainly not limited to those.
