Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursSeeing several writers talking about their fear that their queer girl books won’t sell and how that’s stopping them. Please write these stories, find agents, etc. who will champion them. I certainly want to see them and I know SO MANY other editors who do as well. Please 💕🙏🏾
Queer girl books are always on my #mswl! Send 'em over here.
Patricia Nelson @patricianelsYA/MG/WF that has something true to say about friendship -- either friend break-ups OR true ride-or-die friends a la Emery Lord's bks. #mswl
Patricia Nelson @patricianelsI want historical WF w/ big story--maybe loosely based on an underdiscussed real person from history? Show me the past in a new light. #mswl
And last (perpetual #mswl), send me LGBTQ bks w plots NOT centered on homophobia/coming out. Queer folks as protags of all kinds of stories!
KellyJFord @Kelly_J_FordSend your best and bravest work to my wonderful agent! #lgbtq and #ownvoices, you are welcome here! twitter.com/patricianels/s…
Amy Boggs @notjustanyboggsSF/F where LGBTQ+ is and has always been seen as a natural part of the world. Worlds that don't reflect our current bias. #MSWL
Brent Taylor @btaylorbooksThis is so, so important. Gay 8, 9, 10, 11, 12yo kids do in fact exist, and they need more books. twitter.com/misskubelik/st…
