Last year, the PW salary survey reported that Latinx people only made up 3% in the industry.

As a Latina editor, I can use my acquiring power to buy and booze the stories of Latinx people. And this is how I can do my part for #DignidadLiteraria.

Agents, my MG & YA #MSWL is:

✨ Contemporary; slice of life; coming of age; LGBTQIA+; coming out stories
✨ Mysteries and adventures
✨ Paranormal/supernatural especially brujxs, witches, vampires, wolves
✨ Plays with tropes
✨ Comps to DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, LOVE SUGAR MAGIC

#MSWL!
✨ Latinx MG & YA (contemporary; rom-coms)
✨ Vampires! Especially if by authors of color
✨ Atmospheric small-town settings with lots of (deadly) secrets
✨ Mixed format stories like THE KINGDOM, RULES FOR VANISHING, & ALL OF THIS IS TRUE
