I won’t be open to queries til January, but in 2022, I’d love a genre book, YA or adult, that deals with reproductive health—birth control, abortion, infertility, PCOS, just the tough stuff that sometimes comes with an AFAB body—without it being the book’s central conflict #mswl

Hey friends, I'm a little pitch contest-ed out (I'm sorry!!!) but I *would* love to see some adult queer and BIPOC horror in my QM. I'll be closing to queries at the end of May to go through my inbox, so please do send me yours if you feel I'd be a good fit! #mswl

Mystery, in certain subgenres! I saw an editor #MSWL asking for “fresh cozies for millennial readers,” which, yes please! As in YA, I'm absolutley looking for queer mysteries. Some dislikes: No young children in harm’s way/being secretly evil. No cop MC’s or love interests.

I’ll to add to this that I’d *love* more adult romance and romcoms with non-binary MC’s and love interests, HUGE #MSWL

For goodness sake, somebody PLEASE deliver my a plucky fun queer YA historical in the vein of Gentleman Jack #MSWL 🙏🏼

It’s occurred to me that when I tweeted this, I wasn’t selling adult romance/WF. Now I am and good god, send me your joyous adult queer historical novels (and if you’ve already subbed me something like this, do feel free to bring it to my attention ☺️) #MSWL

I would truly love an SFF, YA or Adult, with queerness so baked into the world à la She-Ra that nobody even blinks. There’s danger and end-of-the-world stakes and messy relationships galore, but that particular threat is non-existant. This has been today’s #MSWL

I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

Let it be known that I would love an adult or YA romance with this exact vibe👌🏼 #MSWL

I think quarantine is making my mswls punchier than usual...

YA or adult or crossover, SFF or contemporary or romance, I don’t care; just send me your books starring queer, exceptionally charming disasters #MSWL

If anyone’s got an adult Harlots-style romance/fiction floating around, with all of the sisterhood and wigs and perhaps a tad less murder (not a dealbreaker), you know where to find me... #MSWL

This seems as good a time as any to ask for your Adult or YA f/f romances with a Princess Bubblegum/ Marceline-esque dynamic #MSWL

Since my call for poisoned pastry shop stories has let to fantastic results, another #MSWL: please send me your adult/YA/crossover books starring a grownup Kristy Thomas from The Babysitters Club. You know, bossy, badass, wears baseball tees, detail-oriented, clearly queer...

On the flip side, I’m still waiting for my dark Adult or YA book about a poisoned pastry shop #MSWL

Rereading my eternal fave NATALIE TAN’S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE reminds me how badly I want an Adult Romance/Contemporary steeped in family, food, culture, and a little bit of magic #MSWL

Somebody send me an adult romcom with a Fleabag-esque MC. I would like a legitimate hot mess of a protagonist, please! #MSWL
