Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡

I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!

Disney has been supplying some of my favorites for ages, but I can't stop listening to the soundtrack so....

#MSWL for MG with #Encanto vibes! And also, obviously, all the Moana and Coco vibes too!

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 #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!)

• 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.

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 🥰🤗

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

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

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

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