Happy Friday!

Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!

I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent

I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!

The Fantasy I am still looking for is:

- fantasy written by and starring BIPOC
- literary poetic prose (especially in MG—think Kelly Barnhill)
- folkloric quality/grounded in history (Alice Hoffman; Rena Rossner; my wonderful client Mary McMyne)

And, finally, and in perpetuity until I find it, give me a funny, commercial middle-grade mystery series told in first person by a BIPOC lead! #MSWL

I’m also interested in a friendship YA or MG that comps to SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, but with an entirely BIPOC cast. #MSWL

Hey, writers! I’m once again caught up on queries and eager to find my next client! Here's what I'd love to find... 🧵 #MSWL

To begin with, I’m prioritizing BIPOC creators and, more broadly, writers from marginalized or underrepresented backgrounds, with an eye out for disabled writers. #MSWL

Here's a sweet #MSWL tweet from @AgentJessicaA!

"I want more joyful books—book club fiction, women’s fiction, romance, memoir—just books that are filled with positivity and hope. Uplifting, happy stories with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters are especially wanted."

#mswl BIPOC mythology! I don't know half as much as I should and I want stories that show me your glorious culture, your timeless stories, and your characters in all their facets. Bonus if it's gay (although strikes me all mythology should be gay!!)
