I'm on the first episode of Dash & Lily, and I NEED more YA romance novels like this. #MSWL

I'm not open to queries right now but if you have a book like this let me know. I might make an exception. 😏

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!

Lastly, my #1 #mswl is a YA or adult queer VICIOUS. I love the dynamic between Eli and Victor, and it doesn't have to be SFF, I just want that best-friends-turned-"I want to kill you" enemies with lots of sexual tension. To add to that, I love Killing Eve and need that as well.

My #3 #mswl I cannot stress enough--I need YA and adult RomComs. Super funny, super cute, super smart, and full of emotion like RWRB. I really need a David & Patrick (from Schitt's Creek) romance. #romancelandia where you at?

My #6 #mswl is a best friend break up story! in YA or MG. Maybe even new adult? Think Booksmart!

- 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'm going to bug the #WritingCommunity and #romancelandia again. I'm desperately seeking to represent an author who writes happy, funny, heartfelt books in MG, YA, or Adult. #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

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
