✨ contemporary and well-researched historical queer romance, with pining and butterflies and swoony tension and steaminess and a REALLY strong hook
✨ books that celebrate books, both MG and adult
✨ heists, cons, scams, the more glam the better (no cishet man protags)

i would love to see:
✨ BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, neurodivergent, undocumented, historically excluded voices
✨ adult fiction set in latin america (esp brazil) across genre, own voices
✨ MG fantasy feat. non-western folklore and high personal stakes

IN THE DREAM HOUSE, FRESHWATER, etc.
✨ all the queer horror! (YA and adult)
✨ complex + complicated mother/daughter, sister/sister, + best friend relationships
✨ more protagonists who are fat, trans/non-binary, mixed-race, dark-skinned, etc. (4/7)

i have SO many incredible queries in my inbox and i'm reading from my couch so keep 'em coming! some of my #MSWL : heartwarming YA w/ mixed-race families, gorgeous essay collections on queerness/sex/sexuality, and adult fic w/ a protagonist of color figuring out their early 20s
