Happy #MSWL day! If I don’t get a romance/women’s fiction submission about a 30-year-old Latinx woman who’s throwing her quinceañera part 2 (aka the one she never had) and finally gets the boy who got away, I will flip. Think Never Been Kissed meets The Wedding Singer con azucar.
Brooklyn White @brooklynrwhiteI wrote about the co-optation of Hot Girl Summer. "If you don’t support Black women, give them access, and make them feel seen in the products you’re peddling, then you shouldn’t adopt their intraracial phrases to line your pockets." bitchmedia.org/article/brands…
Which is why in my previous call for women's fiction or romance manuscripts that are inspired by Hot Girl Summer, I specifically asked to see work by Black women writers.👇🏽 #MSWL
Norma @normajeanesaysIf I ever got a romance/women's fiction like Jane the Virgin/Ugly Betty, I'd die with happiness. #R #CR #WF #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YKaTAMA6nh
It's been over 2 years for this one, and I have a field of crickets in my inbox too. #MSWL
Linda Camacho @LindaRandomMore plus-size protagonists in stories that don't include pageants or fashion. Different plots, please! #MSWL
