Tara Is Open To Queries
Before I close for queries tomorrow, I wanted to get out a #mswl of what I really want to see in my inbox.
- Authors of underrepresented communities (POC, LGBTQIA+, body, neuro, disabled)
- Fat girl stories where their weight is not the plot.
- MG and YA horror.

Honestly, I hard-core want anything comped to Madeline Miller. #MSWL
I'd love to see LGBTQ+ YA/NA romcoms in my query box. LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT or something like RWRB! I want to laugh, cry, and fall in love. Like anything with the same relationship as David and Patrick. 😍😍😍 #mswl
Watching The Host movie. I actually preferred it over twilight. And yeah, it has it's problems. So can someone write me a version of this with queer character and subtract all the misogyny? Bonus points for actual ace or demi rep. #mswl
Rachel Diebel 🌻 @diebelraI ‘ M S O R R Y I just learned that Amelia Earhart and Eleanore Roosevelt were probably gay for each other and idk how someone can shoehorn this into a commercial YA novel but #MSWL please someone try
Yes! #mswl for YA or Adult for me!

- MG/YA nonfiction
- LGBTQ+ nonfiction
- Graphic novels in pretty much anything on my wishlist
- #LGBTQIA+ characters in everything.
- Body diversity
- Underrepresented voices
Tara Gilbert 🔮✨ @Literary_TaraCan I get a LGBTQIA+ sports romance? Especially if the sporty one is a lady, trans, or nonbinary. This is for adult, YA, and I'd take upper MG (even if it isn't romance). Thanks! #mswl
Esports count too!! Give me gamers! Heck, I'll take hetero in that. #mswl

Charlie's Angels @CharliesAngelsKristen Stewart as Sabina is everything and more - don’t miss her in theaters November 15th! #CharliesAngels 💖
"No, I was the better shot" is like... the best line ever. #mswl with a character like this Sabina. Make her gay too.
Some ideas? How about:
- 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, but gay.
- a POC BRIDGET JONES DIARY
- a millennial SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE
- a neurodiverse YOU GOT MAIL
- a plus-size of FIRST 50 DATES (or any book because I need more plus-size characters) #mswl 3/3
