#MSWL Looking for adult contemp romance: primarily queer or neurodiverse. I really want to focus on queer and/or autistic relationships and show the broad range of experiences that heterocis/neurotypical creators/characters have tons of page space to show already.

#MSWL On the picture book side, I am looking for stories that deal with different levels of ability, and stories with LGBTQ+ families. Also some hilarious and unexpected wordplay like THE WONKY DONKEY.

#MSWL queer elements in YA contemporary always a bonus for me, because I am absolutely queer too. Show me teen friendships that influence us for life. Show me connections that fracture in devastating ways.
I am closing to YA Fantasy & Sci Fi. List is full on those for the moment.

I'm only open to picture books that fit my #MSWL - right now, I want heartwarming pbs that address special needs, LGBTQ+ families, or diaspora experiences.
Also, funny word-play books like THE WONKY DONKEY.

I am opening to select Non-Fiction queries. Still putting together a #MSWL, but I am particularly interested in LGBTQ+ perspectives in parenting, or funny parenting titles, or funny cookbooks. I will share more later!

#MSWL I really want fun queer romances. All across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, with smart, fully developed characters, sharp dialogue/witty banter, family/friend/career drama, and beautiful, totally explored settings.

#askagent Do you have a #CR tropes you particularly hate/love @NaomisLitPix

Replying to @HRuthMiller

Personally, I love contemporary romance that is less tropey, and deals with deep character issues. Right now I am actively seeking LGBTQ+ contemporary romance! #MSWL

I desperately want contemporary or fantasy romance novels with trans main characters where there is no bullshit transphobic reaction to the MCs transness from anyone anywhere ever. #MSWL

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · Jan 27

#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Queer contemporary romance! Show me all kinds of relationships, all genders. Make me BURN with desire to see the relationship ignite!
(I am queer myself and want to read all the nuance and complexities of queer romance explored without hesitation)

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF - The queerer the better! Sci fi or Fantasy with queerness embedded in culture; SFF that fearlessly reps gender/sexuality spectrum. (I am queer myself and want to see ways cultures could deal with queerness differently from our reality)

#MSWL I am in need of more Middle Grade MG queries in my QueryManager! Send me ridiculous, send me adventure, send me fantasy, send me LGBTQ+ protags and family dynamics, BFFs and boisterous ensembles, stories with purpose, depth, and humor! #querytip #amquerying #amwriting

#MSWL I am always seeking picture books featuring any elements of diversity! Including but not limited to racially diverse characters, LGBTQ+ themes, unique family arrangements, non-NT characters. #picturebook #kidlit

Most of all, MOST OF ALL, if you're worried your character is not the usual star of a sci-fi fantasy because of elements of diversity (color, religion, LGBTQ+, neurodiversity, disability) QUERY ME PLZ plz plz plz plz! #MSWL

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 9 Apr 2018

I love certain messages in PBs and am always seeking LGBTQ+ diverse & neurodiverse voices in PBs. But remember: story needs to be written for KIDS who read those books, not the parents/adults, in order for the message to be absorbed. Make it fun AND informative. #querytip #MSWL

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 29 Mar 2018

#MSWL : women, diversity, and #ownvoices in sci fi.
Also desperately in need of a fantasy that takes me to an unexpected, far off land. Preferably with LGBTQ+ elements.
