Los Angeles Times @latimesTV has a new kind of heroine: The Latina genius. Here's why it matters latimes.com/entertainment-…
1000% seeking MG (& YA & GN) w/ similarly strong, memorable Latinx leads (genius is not a specifically-required trait, but they *do* need to have agency, fresh/compelling story arcs, & be buoyed by masterful writing from creators who share the main character’s identity). #MSWL
Daniel Barnes @ C2E2 L12 @Danny8bitThe 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder
It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers pic.twitter.com/pTgs2Oh615
I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.
I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—
The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!
I JUST REALLY LOVE TMNT! #MSWL
Kacper Wierzchos @WierzchosKacperBIG NEWS (thread 1/3). Earth has a new temporarily captured object/Possible mini-moon called 2020 CD3. On the night of Feb. 15, my Catalina Sky Survey teammate Teddy Pruyne and I found a 20th magnitude object. Here are the discovery images. pic.twitter.com/zLkXyGAkZl
I DEMAND A PICTURE BOOK ABOUT THE MINI MOON / 2020 CD3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #MSWL

Tiffany D. Jackson @WriteinBKHello Writers,
-If you're a black debut with a YA THRILLER, send it to me to blurb.
-If you are on submission, have your agent send it.
I would love to see more of us with me in this very white genre.
Ooh, also, #MSWL!

I will always want a twisted mom book. Switched at birth. Who's your "real" mom? What does it matter? I've also been seeing some speculative robo/AI-mom stories out there with comment on guardianship, biological and not. Yes to that, too. Give me something truly sinister. #MSWL
#MSWL I’m eager to acquire for @CarinaPress’s newest line, Adores, featuring LGBTQ+ characters, and I’m especially interested in #ownvoices submissions. Here’s a link for more information about the requirements for Adores:

Enemies to lovers
Action/adventure in epic settings
Lethally competent heroines
Military & law enforcement protagonists
#MSWL feel-good contemporary romance and romcom especially these tropes

I'm open to queries and currently very caught up. (Hint, hint) I'm hungry for ya romance, queer romance for YA and adult space. Queer fiction in general. Chick lit/romcom. Women's fiction. I'd love a beach read in winter. #mswl
