Can I get a queer f/f YA version of WAIT TILL HELEN COMES, where the MC is terrified her girlfriend is in some kind supernatural danger of possession in their small town & dammit, that ghost just longs for her own gal from 200 some years ago. #MSWL

β€œYou know the greatest loves of all time are over now...” I’ll take a women’s fic, contemporary fic, or romance with the gauzy mood of β€œthe 1” mkay thanks. #MSWL

Historical adult f/f or f/nb queer rom coms. All of them. Pick a century, a decade, I’m here for it. #MSWL

Adult gothic horror by a Black creator. That’s it. That’s the whole #MSWL.

Also, send me a romance that feels like summer from page one, beach or lake setting, or big city summer feels like LA or NYC. YA or adult, esp from marginalized creators. All the complex feels like in BEACH READ & THE KISS QUOTIENT & REAL MEN KNIT. And as always:πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ #MSWL

Closing to queries on 6/1 (until 7/1!), so I’m sending out the #MSWL bat signal. I’m LONGING for a realistic MG that hits me w/ ALL THE FEELS reminiscent of Erin Entrada Kelly, Laurel Snyder, Kelly Yang, Kat Yeh, & Brandy Colbert. Fresh & voicey, esp from marginalized creators.

MG #MSWL: Heartwarming, feel-good, complex friendships (bc middle school, amiright?), & first crushes, all centered around twin siblings. And make it gay.

As summer approaches & we have no idea what it will actually look like, I’m craving a DELIGHTFUL YA or adult summer romance in my queries. Voice-driven, ocean/lake/river setting, lots of swoons. #MSWL

Here’s a #MSWL for you: A YA or ADULT fantasy set in Paris or Prague or Budapest or something uniquely akin, with an MC who most definitely knows she’s badass & powerful & won’t hesitate to tell you exactly where you can stick your hero-complex. In my dreams, she’s ragingly pan.
