Ahhhh! Just realized it’s #MSWL day! I really love messy characters, twists and turns I never saw coming, diverse characters written by BIPOC & Latinx creators that are both impactful & joyful, and horror in all age categories🤩 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/amy-…
This is the first time I am open to Picture Books! I am selectively looking for: whimsical and funny stories, especially those that showcase diversity. Family and friendship themes are my favorite. It's a plus if you are an author/illustrator, but not a must.
In 2022, I will continue to build my list with stories that amaze me from the beginning. I believe that all people deserve to see themselves in books, so above everything I will be seeking stories that showcase diversity. Cheers!
I REALLY want some COLLEGE-AGE YA! I binged The Sex Lives of College Girls and just adored these characters so much. I want to see diversity, humor, willingness to be messy, friendship, and honesty.
There can be romance, but it doesn't need to be the center of it all.
The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.
What am I missing in my inbox?
1. I want smushy sweet romance that makes me tear up when I read--like LOVE, VICTOR or LOVE, SIMON or RED WHITE and ROYAL BLUE.
2. I want relationships that are full of friendship and happiness, especially written with a cast of diverse characters.
