I've heard 2 #AWP17 YA panelists say editors don't allow couples w/ 2 black teens. Fellow eds, if you're saying this: REALLY? Ugh. STOP.

This is bull. I would like couples with 2 black teens please. #MSWL https://t.co/vhWaJDbJvq

Books (in my categories) about food. Can you tell it's almost lunch time? #MSWL

Do you have historical YA, romance, or SFF? Is it set in a place/time not often written about? #MSWL

I'm a sucker for poignant contemporary MG/YA that's also really funny. #MSWL

#blackgirlmagic . Literally. Figuratively. Don't Care. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

Contemporary books with a strong sense of place. I love the setting to be almost its own character! #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

Fantasy adventures with slow-burn romance and ALL the sexual tension #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

YA and MG characters with specific and varied enthusiasms, Got a kid who is nuts about bees? Chemistry? A little-known Dutch painter? #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

SFF with worldbuilding with highly logical and fresh elements that shape who your character is #MSWL

Literary F and SF. Cinematic action/adventure SF. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

Give me complex, sympathetic villains. Heroes who aren't necessarily good. MCs who roll with the punches but aren't happy about it #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

YA inspired by the DAPL issue. Black Lives Matters. PP. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

Is your book (especially YA) about social justice, protesting, and movements? #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

Steamy romance with verbal consent, and a twist on the normal dynamic. DO you have a lady billionaire and her male secretary? #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

SF/F based on African folklore/mythology, or set in an African-based world. #MSWL

I'm still looking for that YA (non-Salem) witch book (where they grow up doing magic) that makes my heart go a-flutter. #MSWL

I'm especially looking for #ownvoices . If this a story that hasn't been told, and it's your story to tell, I'm your person #MSWL
