Linda Epstein (is Taking A Break)
Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader...bc yt stories & yt history were all i had. i was 27 the first time i read about a biracial korean girl, written by a korean author (thank you @jennyhan).
i'm 33 & i still haven't seen a biracial, korean, jewish character in YA...
#mswl ffs! If a Jewish biracial person has a YA or MG ms, I don’t care if I’m open to queries or not, SEND IT TO ME. We need more BIPOC Jewish fiction! (FYI I don’t read Holocaust stories though.)
For anyone who doesn't already know me, let me state loud & clear once again: Please send me your #BIPOC #LGBTQ+ #ownvoices #middlegrade & #YoungAdult manuscripts! Look at what I'm asking for in my other #MSWL tweets to see if we'd be a good match. (Ah! So many hashtags!)
Honestly, I'd really like a realistic contemporary YA romcom or romance featuring BIPOC characters! Hit me up with something akin to Jenny Han or Sandhya Menon's books. #MSWL
Something I want to see in my inbox: a YA romcom set in space; even better if the main character is BIPOC and extra points if it's LGBTQ+ too! Not too sciencey & not fantasy or characters w/superpowers (other than being smarty pants and/or physically fit). #MSWL
