I’m just a dumb raging thot who wants an Girls Trip Adult novel for queer BIPOC whores who want to have a good time at the expense of their friendship (before reconciling, of course!) #mswl

#MSWL I had to return Leila La Brujita Perfecta to the library and now have a vacant hole for PB stories that bring on all the whimsy of Flavia Z. Drago's work.

If you're a BIPOC author/illustrator with a dummy or working on a dummy that can fill this, I want to hear from you!

Been watching POKER FACE and MURDER SHE WROTE and really feeling #MSWL BIPOC amateur investigating. Because, damn, we could use better representation in this space! Loved Jane Pek's THE VERIFIERS, for example.

#mswl — my goal for 2023 is to sign a suspense novel written by a BIPOC author. We need more of your books on shelves.

YA/NA #MSWL: although sci-fi is still tough, I always say things in publishing are tough but not impossible.

I’d love a BIPOC grounded sci-fi mystery/thriller that can be comp’d to DEVS/Tales From The Loop/The OA.

YA/NA #MSWL: I am looking for a horror from a BIPOC writer that can be comp’d to The Hacienda/Mexican Gothic/She Is a Haunting/Bad Witch Burning. And YA contemporary fantasies from BIPOC writers who are also interested in writing MG.

Early Reader #MSWL: If you’re a BIPOC author-illustrator with the start of a GN novel series like Narwhal and Jelly with the laugh out loud moments of Supertato PBs, I’d love to hear from you.

Writing that's sharp and biting, or writing that's lyrically astounding. Is there a touch of magic? A heap? Yes, I want it.

And I want all of it to be BIPOC and/or queer.

I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!

Overall things & random misc.:

- Any and all BIPOC
- Anything Tarot-related
- Unique structures like REPLICA or stories told in fragments
- What if the main character loses or doesn't get the happily ever after?
- Messy relationships, regretful choices, & life or death decisions

Ahhhh! Just realized it’s #MSWL day! I really love messy characters, twists and turns I never saw coming, diverse characters written by BIPOC & Latinx creators that are both impactful & joyful, and horror in all age categories🤩 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/amy-…

I've updated my #MSWL page for their great new platform and look forward to queries - especially if it's a multicultural love story, a
BIPOC perspective on history (fiction or nonfiction), a thriller in an unusual time and place...
Happy #MSWL Day! 👇🤗 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jess…
