Tara Gilbert ✨ Closed To Queries
Tara Gilbert 👻✨🔮 @Literary_Tara📢Announcement!📢
I'm closing to queries November 1st and won't reopen until the new year! I recently signed some awesome authors and I'm going to focus on them. However, I'm still searching for a couple more clients to meet a gap in my current list. (See #mswl thread below.)
Hey #mswl! I'm closing tomorrow and would love more queries before I do. Still looking for a good MG and a romcom!
Also, more graphic novel authors and illustrators! I'm open to all categories, but especially love MG and YA. Mostly looking for inclusive, diverse stories from underrepresented communities. #MSWL #GraphicNovel #illustrator
Shout out my lovely clients @jocabako and @Schnumn!
More middle grade! I tend to love MG novels that have a classic feel to them that will be loved for generations to come or MG with series potential like Percy Jackson! Would love something with puzzles. Funny voices. Literary voices. #MSWL
tara 💫 open to queries 🎉 @Literary_TaraI had a dream where we went to this old house where an old lady lived, and she gave off creepy vibes that weren't natural. So after we all were assigned our rooms and everyone was asleep I went searching. There was a part of the house that was off limits. It was familiar to me...
My #2 #mswl queer horror stories in MG, YA, and adult. Horror in all shapes and sizes. I'm usually not a slasher or body horror person, though. I like psychological and supernatural, usually. Maybe something where the environment is the antagonist. Also... twitter.com/Literary_Tara/…
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.
I love books, movies, and shows with small towns where everyone knows each other. Stories with lots of emotion. (I'm watching My Girl right now and might watch Steel Magnolias next). Would love some YA, MG, or Upmarket adult stories set in small towns. #mswl
I'd also love more spooky/horror MG. Give me fantastic monsters, nature-based villains (like a forest or swamp), and something weird and twisty. I'll take it in YA too. #mswl
I just finished Rick Riordan's recent Apollo book, and I would love an upper MG or YA or Adult book about Artemis/Diana. If YA or A, I would love this in the vein of Madeline Miller's Circe. MG would be in the vein of a RR Presents novel! #mswl
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinWould love a killer middle grade mystery.* Spooky/supernatural, cozy, and Westing Game puzzle-style varieties all encouraged. #mswl
*no actual murder required
Me too! Give me all the puzzle MG! #mswl
Some things I am looking for:
- YA RomCom (or adult) with a diverse cast and smart topics.
- 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

I need more puzzles, murder, and mystery in my box like TRULY DEVIOUS. YA and MG only. I'm not a fit for your regular cozy mystery novels. #mswl
