I agree with everything in this piece on Jane the Virgin, particularly talking about the visuals. Honestly, if you have a book that will make me laugh, gasp, and cry like Jane the Virgin, with complete with diverse rep, send it my way. #MSWL newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursSeeing several writers talking about their fear that their queer girl books won’t sell and how that’s stopping them. Please write these stories, find agents, etc. who will champion them. I certainly want to see them and I know SO MANY other editors who do as well. Please 💕🙏🏾
I've been standing on this soapbox for years. Send me your queer girl stories. Especially middle grade. Make me cry like the first time I saw FUN HOME and heard "Ring of Keys." These stories deserve to be heard! #MSWL
In honor of the #alayma this morning, here is a #MSWL of the awards I'd love to have a client receive someday. The Schneider Family Book Award and The Stonewall Book Award. Even better if it's in one book! So send me your LGBTQAI+ and disability rep.
Jordan Hamessley @thejordacheI'm obsessed with #Chopped and #MasterChef. I love the teen/kid competitor episodes. A YA foodie novel would be a ton of fun. #MSWL
What happens to the kids AFTER they win Masterchef or Top Chef Junior and they go back to real life after being on tv for three months? Do they feel pressure to go to culinary school when they are 17 after spending months saying that's their dream at 11? #MSWL
Jordan Hamessley @thejordacheAlso putting it out there that I am DYING for a sexy YA ballet book from a boy dancer's POV. My working title: FOUETTES FOR DAYS. #mswl
It's been nearly four years and I'm still dreaming of this project. Someone please write me FOUETTES FOR DAYS. I'd love the teen male POV on ballet with some drama and romance. #MSWL
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaI get *so* many requests for trans guy books on the LGBTQReads Tumblr and giving the same 10 titles over and over again is getting really sad. If you're a trans guy even thinking about writing an #ownvoices book, I really, really hope you do it.
And when you write it, please send it to me to rep! #mswl
