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.

If you are a BIPOC or LGBTQ+ author, I want to see your stories. Give me your amazing words and diverse characters.

2. Adult rom-com or contemporary romance set during the holidaysβ€”I love Christmas, but I’d love to see diverse holidays celebrated also.

And I am ALWAYS looking for #ownvoices and a diverse set of characters to these stories. Let teens ALL be able to see themselves in the books they read.❀️

The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairingβ€”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.
