Tara Is Open To Queries
- Adult and YA speculative fiction like VE Schwab and Madeline Miller.
- Fluffy, happy romance.
- Have you read anything by TJ Klune? Because I'm looking for the next TJ Klune. Hilarious, emotional, awesome.
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansIf someone out there is writing an adult fantasy inspired by the epic tale Isis and Osiris that is romantic, angst-ridden and full of tense politics...I'm your editor.
Yes, please! Send it to me. I love Isis and Osiris. #MSWL
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
Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.
In General Fiction, I'm super picky, but would like:
- Literary Fiction by diverse authors.
- High concept Romance like RW&RB.
- Books that would fall in the NA category if it existed.
OOoOOO it's #pitmad tomorrow! Here is what I'm going to be looking for...
🏳️🌈Diverse voices! LGBTQ+, Neurodiversity, POC, and other marginalized communities.
❤️Contemporary Romance in YA, NA, Adult!
😭Contemporaries in YA!
RL Martin @AuthorRLMartin@Literary_Tara What genres are you seeing a lot of in your inbox, or are wishing you were seeing more of? #askagent
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
Recent romances that I have loved and would like to see comps to:
- RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE
- THE BRIDE TEST
- THE RIGHT SWIPE
Basically, I want to see the next generation of romance. Millennials in romance, #ownvoices, underrepresented groups, and more. #MSWL 2/3
Soooo... there is a lack of romance in my box, and I would like to rectify that. #amquerying
If you have a romance novel you are querying, I would love to see it! #MSWL
I'm looking for romance books that almost cross over into contemporary fiction/women's fiction. 1/3
#WritingCommunity where are my Romance writers? As I go through my query box, I'm desperate to read romance. I'd love to see anything LGBTQ+ and anything with a new spin on an old favorite. #amquerying thanks! #mswl
Some more romance, but fantasy this time! I totally ship Harrow and Viren from The Dragon Prince. Please, someone, send me a story about a King and his adviser falling in love! But only after that adviser tries to kill him. #mswl
More romance! RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE is my absolute favorite romance EVER. Can someone please send me a romance, but with more than just romance? A romance to hits some hard topics, is funny and heartbreaking all at once, and is queer. #mswl
