#MSWL for a rom-com inspired by this ❤️🔥🏳️🌈
Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡

#DoRevenge on Netflix was so good!! Exactly what I’m in the mood for—campy but fresh YA. #mswl

-more Fantasy Romance, please!
-Crime fiction featuring marginalized POVs and/or by marginalized creators for all ages!
-Anything comped to The Picture of Dorian Gray and/or The Count of Monte Cristo
Also #MSWL for books that feel or align with the following tv shows/movies:
-Turning Red (Disney+)
-Only Murders in the Building (Hulu)

Miscellaneous things I’d love in my inbox? 📥
• horror pied piper reimagining!
• queer Dorian Gray
• queer MG 💚
• sex-positive, body positive YA rom-coms
• BIPOC witches, seers, and mediums
• BIPOC in and writing crime fiction & speculative fic
• isolated thrillers
In speculative fiction (light sci-fi, horror, fantasy), I need worlds that I can settle into easily.
Fresh takes on classic tropes, dynamic characters, unique magic systems, atmospheric writing & undeniably high stakes ✨Think: R.F. Kuang, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Rory Power
I’d love to see more crime fiction! 🔪🖤
If it reads like a true crime doc or headline, I’m into it. 🚫 police, gov’t officials, detectives (past or present).
I also love speculative twists and psychological elements like Riley Sager, Vera Kurian, & Tiffany D. Jackson!
Romance has been such a joy to work on, so I’d love to see more! Especially in the YA space—think: Jenny Han, Sandhya Menon, Jason June & Adiba Jaigirdar ❤️🔥
And I will ALWAYS love a little bit of romance in my fantasy 🥰
Will never be sick of it, I swear.
New year, time to share a new #MSWL thread of things I’d love to see this year.
I am actively looking for: Adult, YA & MG.
And I am eager to support commercial and high stakes stories featuring BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disability, and neurodiversity representation.
hi, just tweeting out that since #JulieandThePhantoms was canceled and I've been thinking about it ever since... 😭
#MSWL for a fun YA ghost story with similar feel-good vibes and messages about healing through your grief 💛
Hi #amquerying #amwriting folks!
Just a friendly reminder that I am desperately seeking some more contemporary stories in the adult, YA & MG space.
My detailed #MSWL can be found here: bit.ly/3iZE47U 🖤
hi #amquerying & #WritingCommunity folx,
i’d love to see more:
• contemporary stories for MG-Adult
• rom-coms, especially in YA (queer & diverse). I want a BIPOC f/f story so badly!
• twisty YA thrillers and horror (& adult, always!)
OK, can we have more romances where the love interest doesn't have "rippling abs" or "taut muscles," but is instead curvy, warm, soft, and teddy-bear like pls? #MSWL
