-BIPOC-led mysteries and thrillers, especially those with romantic and cozy *elements* even if you may not consider them fully cozy. e.g. there are dogs. there is a bakery. there is a fluffy tooth-rotting romance
-again, more BIPOC in the great outdoors
MG and YA:
-mysteries, family dramas, tearjerkers w happy endings (especially autumn- and holiday-centric this time of year!)
-more BIPOC in the great outdoors
-really strong voices with messy feelings
-outdoors. more outdoors, always
-gutsy, silly, obnoxious kids taking center stage
-unique aspects of culture (am always open to food, but am mostly looking for non-food entry points to story right now)
-author-illustrators whose styles feel ✨cozy✨
-NF about BIPOC history!
#MSWL BIPOC-led #MH #DIS and #ND rep and particularly writing that isn't *about* these things but embraces how they affect the way we live our lives. E.g. a romcom lead who also happens to be dealing with PTSD, a thriller lead whose ADHD might inform the way they work...
