OwnVoices

#MSWL A modern retelling of Phantom or Hunchback. Naturally #ownvoices are prioritized here, especially if the story if told from the perspective of a disabled character (in any case apart from these retellings as well).

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

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

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

I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍

It's #MSWL day. Topping my list is commercial women’s fiction--particularly #ownvoices contemporaries; mother/daughter, sisters, or best friends stories for women in their 30s or 40s. Romance isn't necessary though I do love romance.

Happy #MSWL day! Just a blanket note that I'd love to see #ownvoices subs and POC authors for every wishlist item I post today--not just the ones I specify--and in my inbox in general.

#MSWL I’m always going to be in the mood for a literary/upmarket #ownvoices family saga. I want something deep, addresses the generational divide, and will make me cry my eyes out.

Now that I’m back open to queries here’s a bit of my #MSWL - YA near future Sci Fi, atmospheric Southern Gothic, and witches. All the witches. #MG #YA #diversevoices #ownvoices

As you know I've been on the hunt for more #ownvoices and #diversebooks in nonfiction & fiction in mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket & literary, & women's fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Aug 29

While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.

#MSWL call for more historical romance, especially diverse stories from #ownvoices authors! I adore Regencies and Scotsmen, but I'd also love to see some new time periods, new settings, and new voices. Bonus points if your characters make me laugh.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Aug 16

In general, my #MSWL includes mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary fiction. I want more #ownvoices in all things and more #diversebooks #thursdaythoughts

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Aug 9

I'd love to play a part in diversifying travel writing, and am always open to projects from #ownvoices authors writing about travel and the outdoors. #MSWL
