samantha s. fabien⚜️ @samanthashnhHi writers,
I'm lightly perusing the #LGBTNPit contest🌈, but if I miss your project and you think it's the right fit, please feel free to query the Root team! rootliterary.com/submissions
• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)
• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.
hi all ~ putting out a call for #mswl items I want to see more of:
(especially featuring marginalized POVs & casts by marginalized writers!)
• contemporary romance/ rom-coms in YA & Adult with wit, heat, humor & heart
• thrillers/mysteries/suspense in YA & Adult 1/?

#MSWL but make it a book.
Hi all, back again with a #MSWL update.
I'd LOVE to get my YA romance list to match my adult romance list. @camilliemill and @chloe_liese have spoiled me rotten with inclusive, swoony romances.
For YA romance, I want all of the BIPOC rep, disability rep, and LGBTQIA+ rep 😍🤗
The first time I saw the cover for @reneewauthor’s LOVE IS A REVOLUTION, I was stunned. I’d never seen a MC look like me until then. When I read FAT CHANCE, CHARLIE VEGA, I felt seen.
I want a fabulous plus size MC with Lizzo vibes living her best life and taking center stage.
In YA & MG, I’m being pickier than ever. There are so many great books in this space!! Anything I take on has to really stand out in this competitive market.
If you’re using comps, I want to know how they are alike AND different 🥰🤗
I am continuing to scream into the void for POCs writing/centered in horror, thrillers, mysteries, and suspense. I want the Mexican Gothic, Jordan Peele, Alexis Henderson vibes
ROM COMS OR CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE. Let’s make it queer, inclusive, diverse. If fans of Talia Hibbert, Helen Hoang, Alexis Daria, or Casey McQuiston would read it—I want it!
I really want some relatable women’s fiction about millennials finding their way in the world, taking the wrong paths and learning as they go. I want to see relationships tested —familial, friendships, romantic etc.
OK so I’m closed to queries until November 1, but PPL PLEASE.
Send me all the things with the same vibes of Practical Magic, The Craft, & The Covenant. Make it fresh, delve into the history, make me feel like it’s Salem circa 1690 even if it’s in present day. 🔮✨🌙🖤
Dear #amwriting #amquerying community,
I'm really looking for Black witches/psychics in contemporary fantasy (adult, YA, or MG), plus size MCs, YA and adult thrillers/suspense, and please keep sending these #ownvoices LGBTQIA+ and disability rep books. #MSWL
Ignoring the fact that I am backed up on queries:
#MSWL I want the next Talia Hibbert Red heart Give me all the body-positive, LGBTQIA+ friendly, inclusive, diverse, and sexy contemporary romances. Please and thank you!
Dear #amquerying writers,
I'm working from home (as is everyone) and I really need some escapist queries in my inbox. Send me your upmarket women's fiction, contemporary romances, thrillers, and contemporary fantasies (+1 if it's queer, +1 if it's diverse and #ownvoices). #MSWL
