medusa @tinykinseyscaleDo a lesbian period drama about two black lesbians who meet and fall in love during the Harlem Renaissance instead of another movie where rich white women look at each other longingly in polite society.
#MSWL pleaseeeeeee I would love this
(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl
(Romance continued) Sweep me off my feet please! I’ve been reading romance novels since I was a teenager, so make sure to respect that rules of HEA and give me some good tropey filled romance. #mswl
(Romance continued) I can’t bare to read dated ideals of partnership, relationships, femininity, and masculinity. I DO NOT want books where the characters participate in sexual acts without consent and/or while heavily intoxicated. Consent is key and a requirement.... #mswl
For Queer Adult Romance novels, I want books with queer protagonists that have distinct personalities and a fast pace. I love nearly any genre, but require that the story is queer, feminist, and body positive... #mswl
(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl
For YA and MG genre, I love genre fiction with fast pacing and high stakes. I am generally not preferential to any specific genre as long as the rules of the genre are respected and understood.... #mswl
For YA & MG contemp., I love fiction where the main character has average, everyday challenges and we see how they overcome them. I love books that are lighthearted and emotionally driven.... #mswl
For illustrator portfolios, I like to see a decent sampling of your work, including anything from character design, to fan art, to sequentials. Please let me know whether you are exclusively an illustrator or author/illustrator. #mswl
For graphic novels, I like a diverse cast of characters, placed in nearly any genre or location. I love art that challenges traditional styles and is easily recognizable as belonging to a particular artist. #gn #mswl
I prefer books with a fast pace, high stakes, and strong emotional development for the main character(s). I do not want to see books from authors writing identity based books not of their own identity. #mswl
For all the books I work with, I prefer to work with queer creators and BIPOC creators, and strongly encourage those creators to send me their work. Regardless of genre, age, subject, I like lighthearted, emotional, hopeful, adventurous reads. #mswl

I want the MG or YA book about a junior handler in dog shows.
My family comes from the dog show world, so it's near and dear to my heart. #MSWL
