๐Ÿ’ซ Paranormal adult rom com. Iโ€™m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. Iโ€™m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿง›๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ#MSWL

I havenโ€™t even finished it yet and I can already tell you that if you can comp your book to Anna Northโ€™s OUTLAW (hello witches, feminism, wild west, QUEER), Iโ€™d love to see it. #MSWL

For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL

Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL

Can I get a pair of witchy sisters in an MG with a lush setting, fresh spins or underrepped magical systems, preferably by authors of color writing their own stories? Send them my way! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #MSWL

In the YA realm, Iโ€™m really only looking for queer stories, whatever genre right now. Gimme your witches, sisters, weird families, romances, & intersectional feminists kicking ass mkay thanks.

As always with this time of year, send me all your witches. Iโ€™d love an adult or gothic, adult horror, and/or adult light fantasy with an unforgettable & unique setting, a fresh take or system of magic, and gorgeous writing. Queer always a plus.

And can we talk about sisters? Maybe witchy ones? In a queer & diverse YA novel? In a small town where douche bags get whatโ€™s coming to them? Just saying, Iโ€™d read it. #MSWL
