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

hi #amquerying & #WritingCommunity folx,
i’d love to see more:
• contemporary stories for MG-Adult

• twisty YA thrillers and horror (& adult, always!)
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/?
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
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
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
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.
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 🙃
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...
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
Would love a thriller written by a POC or featuring POC characters #MSWL
In a poem, @Danez_Smif said, "there are no amber alerts for the amber-skinned girls." And now, I desperately need a badass thriller/suspense with POC about this. #MSWL
