Just left #CirqueDuSoleil and now I want queer acrobat romance #MSWL

Léonicka @leonicka · 26 Sep 2019

#MSWL for when I reopen: romcom with emphasis on the comedy. Not just giggling-cute. I want Chidi and Eleanor absurdity level LOLs. Bonus points if the sex scenes are also funny.

I'm closed to queries right now but when I open my #MSWL will be funny kidlit by writers of color. Especially love chapter books and early readers.

I didn’t quote tweet cuz I don’t wanna project on that man’s story but I’d totally rep a m/m barbershop romance. #mswl

Also, after watching #JohnWick3, I want a book about an intricate secret society. Not necessarily assassins and not necessarily adult (remember #CodeNameKidsNextDoor?). #mswl

Take all your frustration with S8 of #GoT and channel it into writing a beautiful and detailed epic fantasy full of people of color and female complexity that doesn’t hinge on sexual violence. Then send it to me. #mswl

#MSWL still eagerly seeking #kidlit by #Canadianwriter #writersofcolour. No picture books or horror but send me everything else! querymanager.com/query/leonicka

Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL

Inspired by @FriendZonePod’s Industry Plant episode, @AintTooProud show on The Temptations, and Beyoncé’s forthcoming #Homecoming doc, I’d love a character driven behind-the-music style book. Fiction or non-fiction, YA or adult. #mswl

Send me sports fiction that will make me cry and cheer and gasp. Any age level (but not picture books). #mswl
