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


samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · May 26

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

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · Mar 3

So, you know the story of the Gemini coven in Vampire Diaries?… Can I get that book, please? There's so much of a story in that community and that history to be unpacked. #MSWL

So if anyone’s writing any version of a fictionalized account of the Bobby Dunbar disappearance, I would love to see it 🤗

👋🏾 If anyone is working on an #ownvoices f/f adult contemporary romance — I’d love to see it #mswl

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · Jan 3

I want to concentrate on building my adult list.

Send me your romances, contemporaries, grounded fantasies, historical fiction (feeling the 1920s these days), thrillers/mysteries, speculative, and contemporary stories.

Oh, and horror! But nuanced horror. #MSWL.

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · Jan 1

Hi, is it too soon to ask for more adult projects in my queries?

I’d love a book set in 1920s and more dark academia books 🥰🤗 #mswl #historicalfiction #darkacademia

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 12 Dec 2019

Guys, although I removed it from my #MSWL, I still love reading about cults and secret societies. The genre really doesn't matter: thriller, contemporary, speculative, etc.

Have fun with it, but also please keep sending 🙃

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 5 Dec 2019

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

And just as a warning, y''s long.

I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 2 Dec 2019

So apparently, View Park-Windsor Hills, CA has one of the largest communities of middle- and upper-class African Americans.

Um hi, can someone write this book for me to read? Is the world ready for a bougie black family drama? Am I adding this to my #MSWL?! 🤗🤗

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 20 Nov 2019

OK.... #MSWL
I really want a swoony but also laugh-out-loud, millennial rom-com. Let's add some awkward Tinder/OKC dates leading to the inevitable meet-cute.
Maybe queer? 😇🏳️‍🌈

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 28 Oct 2019

To everyone participating in #DVPit — hi! 👋🏾 I am actively and aggressively in search of diversity for my list. If I ❤️ your tweet, please include #DVpit in subj line. If you feel your project is in line with my #MSWL, query anyway!

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 10 Sep 2019

I am hungry for a twisty thriller. Throw in some magical realism and supernatural elements if you want. Just please, no police, lawyers, and/or government officials as characters. They usually take all of the fun out of solving the mysteries myself! #MSWL

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 18 Jul 2019

I love dynamic, supportive, and funny friend groups a la Freeform’s #TheBoldType and Netflix’s #SomeoneGreat. I would love a book in any genre featuring this element in some way, shape, or form #MSWL

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 31 May 2019

Would love a thriller written by a POC or featuring POC characters #MSWL

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 27 May 2019

Would love a rom com featuring POC characters and how their families tie into it all. I want them defying stereotypes, but loving, respecting, and owning their culture. #MSWL

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 25 May 2019

Just found out that people from the Ivory Coast are called Ivorian. Now I want a fantasy set there. #obscuretaste #MSWL

samantha s. fabien🌻 @samanthashnh · 19 May 2019

Just watched @booksandlala’s video about things she liked in books. Now I desperately want a book with a smart, well-executed revenge plot in adult fiction or YA (maybe with an ensemble cast???) #MSWL
