I want some on both sides of the spectrum: light and dark.
Something in the vein of Sadie, Behind Her Eyes (but YA), and Knives Out. But also something ala On My Block, Outerbanks, or Scooby-Doo, haha.
I love treasure hunts and heists btw!
Diverse, IR romances and romcoms:
I want both MCs to be POC and the relationship to be multi-cultural &/or multi-ethnic pls! IR can exclude WASP ppl.
For this think Someone Great, Lovebirds, Photograph, Talia Hilbert, Jasmine Guillory, Honey Girl
Think Crimson Peak, Edgar Allen Poe, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Mexican Gothic, Ninth House, Ace of Spades, dark Gossip Girl, & Addams Family!
Give me a heavy atmosphere & aesthetic.
How I would KILL for a BIPOC Yellow Wallpaper x Haunting of Bly Manor
So #writtingcommunity & #amquerying folks, I'll be re-opening to queries September 1st! 👀
That means it's time for an updated #MSWL!!
I'm moving away from fantasy right now and want to see the following from BIPOC writers:
ceo of juneday to fearless inc. @junesipariisvillain redemption? nah. i wanna read a book where the hero is slowly corrupted until they get to a point where even the villain is like “wait a damn minute this bitch is crazy”
I love a good antihero journey. Make these MCs snap I dare you #mswl
Naomi Davis, literary agent (she/they) @NaomisLitPixOn my #MSWL too! Epic fantasy that broadens the category outside its "typical" settings (read: the European-inspired settings that publishing has poured money into while passing over fantasy from non-white cultures) is fantasy I want to represent. twitter.com/little_mswrite…
Looking for this as well!! #mswl
Nita Tyndall @NitaTyndallI’m watching National Treasure and I want more heist/treasure hunting books, especially YA (and queer.) It’s a genre we should revive.
(This is not a call for recommendations please do not respond with “have you read x”)
Yes to all this but BIPOC too, pls!
