Still looking for romance, women's fiction, and cozy mystery BOOK proposals SET AT THE BEACH. If you've published in the genre, you don't need an agent. You just need a killer 3 - 5 pp double-spaced synopsis. DM me for email.

I am never without unannounced publishing secrets anymore, but this has been certainly one of the hardest to keep! So happy to finally share with the world that I've been promoted to ✨editor✨ 🥳🥳🥳 pic.twitter.com/9iX9Np3O6u

Also, seems like the perfect time to share my #MSWL at carolinaiortiz.com/manuscript-wis… Looking forward to seeing those submissions come in!

And agent colleagues, if it's been a minute since we've connected or have never had the chance before, I'm always up for a call or zoom coffee 😁

Calling all smart, uplifting commercial fiction with a speculative slant that basically encapsulates how my heart grew watching the last season of The Good Place and somehow emotionally attaches me to a weirdly wonderful cast of characters like this elite crew. #MSWL

i'm a sucker for: boarding school stories (the soapier the better); stories that take place over 24 hours; generational family stories; & stories that put BIPOC in places where we don't often get to see them (like boarding school, on vacation, the world of ballet, etc) #mswl

i love contemporary YA full of heart that plays with speculative elements in a way that hinges on the emotional connections between people.

i want stories that tackle weighty sociopolitical issues from an emotional, character-first POV, & with a thru-line of hope & joy #mswl

the best thing about YA is that high emotional stakes can come from something as simple as a first date, a text msg gone wrong, a misplaced love letter 💗--& i want to feel those stakes so much that they give me goosebumps & butterflies & tears #mswl

for disney-hyperion, give me ALL THE TROPES (seriously all of them) but make them feel ✨new✨ again

i want stories where BIPOC to take center stage when it comes to all the fake dating, graduation night, only one bed, epic road trip, one last summer, joy-filled tropes #mswl

im ALWAYS looking for ✨contemporary✨ stories that center BIPOC & lead w joy!!!!

for RRP i'd love stories w an emphasis on intersectionality, deeply tied to culture & identity--bonus points for stories that play with magic/supernatural/mythology in fresh, exciting ways #mswl
