I am looking for stories from Black creators and from marginalized communities.
Bring on the MG fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, and/or coming-of-age stories centered around black characters, experiences, and BLACK JOY!
Heidi N. Moore @moorehnIt is wild to me that authors keep setting things in England when France is *right there* and super haunted in every region twitter.com/swordsjew/stat…
Send me your haunted French fantasy novels!! Contemporary, historical...or speculative 👀 #MSWL

Currently looking to rep UNPUBLISHED authors looking for traditional publishing contracts.
"I want unique, genre-blending romance novels. I wish I had worked on THE PLUS ONE by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom com in space, or with magic."
What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl
As always, I’m looking for YA Contemporary as well, though I am far more picky with my YA contemporary than anything else. I am NOT a good fit for anything with rape, trauma, suicide, etc.. I’ve lived enough of it, I really don’t want to see it in a book, too. Sorry! #mswl
For YA and MG: I have a preference for speculative fiction here, although I’m also open to select contemporary works. Misc interests: the fae, talking animals, marching band, quests, genre-blending, found family, mythological retellings, and dragons.
New specific whim for my #MSWL! I'd love to see more PB bios of contemporary musicians. Give me rock bands, give me rappers, give me pop stars currently killing it. (Lizzo, anyone?? 👀) I LOVE music across many genres, try me with anyone who has a fascinating, kid-OK story!🎸🎵🎶
💕Hi romance writers, since I’m now open to queries for contemp romance, I thought I’d do a separate #mswl for it bc I’d really love to add some amazing college, rivals to lovers, young socialite, big hook books to my list.
Below is my romance vibe w/ examples, songs, and quotes
For the first time, I’m opening up to romance in the adult space, particularly contemporary stories that have a lot of layers, have a great backdrop, and an ensemble cast. I’ll be pretty picky here, but here are a few of my faves from the last year 🤍
✨🤍📖I’m open to queries✨🤍📖
I am so so stoked to open my QM again and this time I have new things on my #mswl! I’m especially in the mood for:
MG & YA heists, competitions, mysteries, and thrillers
Adult fantasy romance
Adult contemporary romance
contemporary retellings of non-Western folklore have been on my wish list for a while now, but i'd also like to see BIPOC- and queer-led reinventions of ~the classics~ like @NghiVoWriting's THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL
