I would LOVE an LGBTQ+ rom com where they just ARE. They love, they fight, they live.
Give me POC who don't have to justify themselves constantly. They can have their own plot and action and agency and not answer to others.

Paranormal? Give me non-US creatures/legends. I love mermaids, but creepy/dark over Disney. I'm not a huge werewolf fan, and I'm only looking at vamps at the moment if they're unique or an awesome POC perspective. Nothing even remotely Twilight, please!
Emery Lee Semi-Hiatus @EmeryLeeWhoIt's been brought to my attention in a sort of roundabout way that people aren't interested in queer books, esp QPoC books, that don't center trauma.
Can y'all do me a favor & RT this if you'd love to read some books about queer people with little to no trauma in them?
My main Qpoc (and all lgbtq) ask is for them just BEING PEOPLE and having a life. Please send me these rather than trauma porn #mswl
Ali Herring @HerringAliWhere are my joyful stories featuring #POC characters? Diversity pls! Black, Latinx, Asian, Indian, Native American, etc. This term gets read over a lot in my #MSWL’s. For those who don’t know, POC refers to the term "person of color” & describes any person NOT considered white.
So much #mswl! poc and lgbtq+ individuals just being people and living life!
Lastly, until I think of more, definitely send me MG STEM-infused plots and POC characters and boys who are allowed to feel/girls who are smart and capable and sassy. Truly looking for tons of GN in the MG sphere #amagenting #querytip
would also LOVE dark GN with creatures from lesser known legends/cultures
on that note, give me historical GN! Give me time periods in new places with new people and their part in that event. I'd love POC and how they affected certain wars/spy networks/etc. #amagenting #querytip
Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.
Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL
Give me badass females and POC in your historical! Big plus if it's LGBTQ+ #MSWL just don't give me Shakespeare, Henry VIII, or Greek gods - a little worn out on WWII, as well, unless it has a totally new POV
#MSWL I am DYING for Historical Fiction & Historical Fantasy featuring POC, females in male-dominated industry, LGBTQ+. Also looking for settings other than the overplayed American/European countries
