I’m always talking about wanting to see books that represent my culture, but the other day I went out to dinner w a friend and her daughter who also happens to be a type 1 diabetic. And I don’t see many books who represent this part of my identity.

So my #MSWL would be a book where one of the characters have a chronic illness (like diabetes) but not where the plot is all about them having the illness. It’s just a character trait & sometimes you have to deal with it but mostly you just live & love & have GMC unrelated to it.

I have a heavy focus on #Latinx stories/voices for obvious reasons BUT that doesn't mean I'm not interested in other groups/cultures. I want to support underrepresented voices getting a seat at the publishing table & welcome these stories in all the genres I happen to rep. #MSWL

I'm open to all things #LGBTQ+, but beyond m/m, f/f pairings I want to see stories about people from all rows of the spectrum. Bi, pan, demi, ace, trans, there are so many stories to be told about love and identity here.

In SFF, I love a kickass heroine doing kickass things. I want to see a diverse group of people (in a multicultural/gender/sexuality sense) coming together to fight whatever BIG BAD there is. While High Fantasy isn't a good fit, pretty much everything else is.

I know summer is over (sob!) but I'm still looking for that summer vacation love story. It could take place at the beach or lake or in an exotic city, but I want something where there are real stakes involved with what happens when summer ends. (YA/Adult)

I'd also love to see some #Caribbean/#Latinx post-Hurricane Irma/Maria stories, stories that tackle the issues head-on but in a hopeful way, with a romance or personal growth for the main characters. Also YA or Adult.

Ok, now the good stuff:

Give me all the #Latinx stories. But a specific one I'd really like to see is one set in PR during the governor protests in OSJ, I'm thinking enemies-to-lovers. Could be YA or Adult.

A couple of housekeeping things:

1. When I reopen I will be using #QueryManager and you can query me at this link: QueryMe.Online/evascalzo

2. Genres I rep: Romance, SFF, Young Adult

#MSWL

3. I am reopening to unsolicited queries on OCTOBER 1, 2019. All queries received before JUNE 1, 2019 have been responded to. If you didn't get a response or queried after June 1st, then you will need to requery.

4. If I have your submission, I'm still reading. I promise. #MSWL

Eva Scalzo πŸ‡΅πŸ‡· @evascalzo · Sep 24

It's #MSWL day & since I'm reopening to queries in a WEEK (eep!) I thought it would be a great idea to go over what I want to see in my inbox.

Caveat: These are things I want to see, but there are definitely things I haven't thought of, so if you think I will like it query me!!

Eva Scalzo πŸ‡΅πŸ‡· @evascalzo · Sep 5

Also, authors, I’ve updated my #MSWL in advance of opening back up to queries in October. I have expanded my genres to include adult SFF and updated my submission guidelines. I’m including the link to make your research life easier. 😊

QUERY UPDATE: You guys, I'm down to 0 unread queries! If you sent a query before June 1st & haven't heard from me, something got lost somewhere. I plan to re-open to unsolicited queries on October 1st. My #MSWL has been updated & new instructions will be posted so pay attention!

My #MSWL tweets were unthreaded because they were scheduled, so I've collected them here in this handy #moment.

Those are my top 5 #MSWL wants, but the list isn't exhaustive.

You can also check out my #MSWL page:

Also don't forget to follow submission guidelines, they are listed on my #MSWL page and the agency website.

5. It's April and it's still freezing in Upstate NY, so I want to see your #SummerLoving romances in both #YA and #Adult. Set at the beach, at the lake, in an exotic city, I want to see those stories that find two people struggling against what happens when summer ends. #MSWL

Eva Scalzo πŸ‡΅πŸ‡· @evascalzo · May 1

4. A #YA #contemporary that is atmospheric a la RIVERDALE and blends mystery and romance in just the right way. I want to get the #creeps as well as #allthefeels. #MSWL
