Time for my Tuesday #MSWL focused on...contemporary. In YA and MG I am always searching for strong characters that fight to change the world. Give me a teen/group of teens staging a protest and making things happen with their voices. #amagenting
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.
Please please please don’t have the romantic interest to die of cancer, or in a car crash, or commit suicide. 💔
Even if romance isn’t the main feature, if it has these characteristics I want to see it.
In MG—yes there can be romance in MG—I really want that sweet and innocent first crush, first kiss, first hand holding. I want the feels to wrap around me like a warm blanket.
Take me back to that awkward time where the love interest doesn’t know what hits them when they meet “the one”—especially if it’s enemies to lovers!
I reopen to queries on Thursday🎉 To celebrate, I will post my fresh #MSWL in the days leading up to October 1st. I am excited to see all the amazing stories you've been working on #writingcommmunity. #amagenting
emily a. duncan - only lurking @glitzandshadowsmore books where the love interest turns into a terrifying monster please

Middle Grade #MSWL right here! The joy on all faces makes me soooooo happy!
In one of the latest episode of THE CHI, Kevin and his friends sneak into what they think is a haunted building. I would love to see a YA mystery built around this scene in my inbox! #MSWL
#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.
JackieWrites @JackieKhaliliehIs there room for young ya (protagonists who are 14 & 15)? I hear there’s a gap....then why aren’t we filling it? This is such a great age to write for and read about. #YoungYA #askagent #ownvoices
I want all of this!!! #MSWL 👇🏻
3. I want to hear from marginalized authors who have a story to tell that isn't just considered an "issue book". Give me culture and family and love.
4. Give me characters I want to root for and in the end, there's a HEA.
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.
I'm open to queries and actively looking to build my list with stories with amazing voices!
