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.
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'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
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
Sophie Vershbow @svershbowWe don't talk enough about how good Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson are in Easy A. pic.twitter.com/w6DhWp1idX
I was JUST talking about this with an editor yesterday! We want more great parent/child relationships in YA! #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!
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
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
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.
