Hi! I’d really really love a laugh out loud BIPOC romcom. Bonus points for intersectionality! #MSWL

With #pitmad coming up, here’s a quick snapshot of my #mswl — I’m looking for adult commercial fiction, specifically fantasy, sci-fi, rom-coms, historical romance, paranormal romance and thrillers from BIPOC & LGBTQIA2S+ writers. Also open to graphic novels in the same genres! 📚

Think Crimson Peak, Edgar Allen Poe, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Mexican Gothic, Ninth House, Ace of Spades, dark Gossip Girl, & Addams Family!

Give me a heavy atmosphere & aesthetic.

Time for an updated #MSWL post! 🌟

First and foremost, I'm looking for BIPOC voices, queer voices, disabled voices, and generally, voices from historically excluded backgrounds.

All-Age Category #MSWL wants
☑️ BIPOC
☑️ Queer/Trans
☑️ ND
☑️ Disability
☑️ Religions & spiritual beliefs that are underrepresented in publishing
☑️ Intersectionality

Basically: The world we live in is diverse. Books written for kids in the 21st century should reflect that.

hi #amquerying & #WritingCommunity folx,

i’d love to see more:

• contemporary stories for MG-Adult
• rom-coms, especially in YA (queer & diverse). I want a BIPOC f/f story so badly!
• twisty YA thrillers and horror (& adult, always!)

I simply devoured Nekesa Afia’s “Dead Dead Girls”. If anyone has a historical murder mystery with a queer/BIPOC protagonist in their drawer, send it my way!🥂 #MSWL

YOUNG ADULT:
- BIPOC rom-coms, friend-coms, and coming-of-age stories not exclusively centered around POC trauma
- Sweeping historical fiction / magical realism, especially stories about non-white history
- Speculative thrillers ala The Thousandth Floor & We Were Liars

My #A #MSWL page is live! Agents, send me your BIPOC myth-retellings--your dark, lyrical novels that dip into fantasy--your REBECCA-esque gothic fiction--your quirky, voicey nonfic. Make me hungry, teach me something, whisk me away: bit.ly/2Udh4Is📚

Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl

Always looking for BIPOC writers!

If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
