Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorWhen her sultan husband died, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt hid the news from his aides, signed the orders in his name, rallied the army, shattered the Seventh Crusade, imprisoned the mightiest monarch in the world—Louis IX—and ransomed him back to France.
Just watched #SomeoneGreat on @netflix and would love that in book form—those fierce female friendships, that strong setting, that bomb soundtrack—but younger, cleaner, and just as funny and heartwarming. Who's got me covered? #mswl
Carolina Ortiz @pushthepanoramaIn general though, any POC authors take on vampires, werewolves, sirens, witches, and any manner of myth/supernatural is always #MSWL for me
Carolina Ortiz @pushthepanoramaThis is probably the fastest I've ever #MSWL anything. But YAAAAAS, SEND ME LATINX VAMPIRES🙏🏼 twitter.com/IsabelWriter09…

Isabel Ibañez @IsabelWriter09Guys. An idea just hit me.
Starring Latinx vampires. Family obligations. Honor. Respect and upholding tradition before anything else.
and The Matriarch.
Who everyone calls Abuela.

Alyssa!!! Cole @AlyssaColeLitI hope that the biggest takeaway from yesterday in Romancelandia is that romance readers are clearly well-versed in the diversity of the Regency, are excited to see more of it, and trad pubs should be acquiring diverse historicals written by POC/marginalized authors.
YES!!! And on that thought, I definitely want to see more diverse Regency, Gregorian, and Victorian YA in my inbox. I took three different Jane Austen classes in college--I have a mighty need #mswl
Hey y'all I'm taking my email off my #mswl page! I can't make exceptions on unsolicited queries and I can't help you find an agent. Agents, you know how Harper emails work, please feel free to still hit me up with ur cool subs anytime. 😉
Between Pride and Copa América, I've got two new #mswl. The first: send me your MG/YA own voices projects starring genderqueer, non-binary, and trans protags. I'm especially trying to get more transmasc representation out there
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguI don't know if I shout about this loud enough: I DO represent Adult SFF and I WANT IT very very badly. I'm looking for fantasy like THE POPPY WAR, SPINNING SILVER, and JADE CITY. Sci-fi like VIGILANCE and THE PREY OF GODS.
YES TO CROSSOVER SFF #mswl
Rosie Brown @rosiesramblesTired: Hades/Persephone retellings where he kidnaps her and is all sorts of creepy
WIRED: Hades/Persephone retellings where Persephone broke into the underworld and won't leave, Hades is begging her to go bc she's eaten all his snacks and Cerberus likes her more than him
Big mood for #mswl
