I would LOVE more cute, sweet romance submissions with black, Asian, or Latino main characters! 65K or more, winter, Valentine’s Day, or spring esp. ❄️❤️🌸Agents, I’d love to get these as proposals, too! #MSWL #Hallmark #OwnVoices #amwriting #publishing

A lyrical #OwnVoices PB about a house blessing (or cleansing) ceremony/ritual. There are so many beautiful traditions out there from different cultural/religious backgrounds. #MSWL

REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks

Middle grade manuscripts? Can you hear me calling? Looking for MG: fantasy, sci-fi, cont., mystery & more. Bring all the childhood feels with you! MG authors, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email & send to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices

Attention MG & YA authors: I'm eager to find a contemporary MS to add to my list. I'm especially looking for an issues book that doesn't feel like it is or something unique. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices

My #MSWL is here: carlywatters.com/2018/04/09/201… I'm looking for a whole lot of #ownvoices fiction and platform driven non-fiction. Submission instructions linked to on the page too.

I'm still looking to add cozy mysteries to my list. I'd love something with a new spin. Send query and 1st five pages to: querylynnette(at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices

I'm dying for more MG fiction in my box!!! Especially contemporary, but any MG would be wonderful! I'd love something unique that gives me all the feels!!! Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency(dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices

Across everything, Diversity is a huge priority for me and @bookendslit. I’d love to see any type of #Ownvoices across all of these genres. #MSWL

BUT, if you've got something in the same vein as say... Children of Blood and Bone! Or like... Six of Crows! I'M IN. I want to see that! #ownvoices #POC #mswl

Just so you all know though, in general I usually steer clear of Holocaust stories and/or other stories set during WW2. Shanghai Ghetto would be an exception for me. #ownvoices #MSWL

Linda (not very spooky) Epstein @LindaEpstein · Sep 29

Also, I know this is very specific, but I'm dying for a YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've literally been thinking about this for years...If it's a love story, even better! #ownvoices #MSWL

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.
