"Seeking voice-driven contemporary YA like EMERGENCY CONTACT by Mary H.K. Choi, DON'T READ THE COMMENTS by Eric Smith, WE ARE OKAY by Nina LaCour, and LET ME HEAR A RHYME by Tiffany D. Jackson."

Micah has now also opened her own query box, and authors may submit to her directly! Check out the link below to see her updated #MSWL and querying info.
Got a #YA contemporary story with messy relationships? Send it to her!
Dystopian • overreacting govts, secret societies, collapse, revolution, apocalyptic (esp w/ religious themes)
Romance • any of the above, historical, contemporary, enemies to lovers, childhood sweethearts, love triangles, no explicit content, would love halal
I'd also love to see #ownvoices Latin-America-inspired mythological fantasy. It could be contemporary, historical, or a fresh retelling.
Anything featuring my favourite animal gets bonus attention.
Hello authors & artists~I'm fortunate to work with some very talented individuals. They've made my life better through their stories & art. I love #kidlit & so, for several days this month, I'm opening to queries @StormLiterary Read details & #MSWL here:
So excited to announce that I'll be opening for queries next week on Monday!
My full #MSWL can be found on my website: leahnovamoss.wixsite.com/my-site/manuscript-wishlist
I can't wait to read your queries soon! I'll have a #MSWL thread up soon as well.

I closed to queries for a while, but I'm baaaack! A quick #MSWL note to celebrate While kidlit will always have my heart, I'm actively trying to build up the adult side of my list—so if you've got thrillers, romcoms, horror, spec and contemp fiction, I wanna see!
Middle grade or YA contemporary stories - without romance or with it in the background. Stories like: American Street, The Hate You Give, Tiny Pretty Things, The Stars Beneath Our Feet, Ghost, Harbor Me, Watch Over Me, and From the Desk of Zoe Washington.
1. Adult Contemporary/Romance: I love a gushy romance or a strong feel-good contemporary with a bittersweet ending. I'm a big fan of second-chance romance (bonus points if it's dual timeline). If it's comp'd to Emily Henry or Taylor Jenkins Reid, I want to see it. (2/8)
#MSWL 🧵 before I open to queries on Friday!
I will be open to most genres of YA and Adult including but not limited to contemporary, romance, thriller, speculative, dystopian, issue-driven, fantasy, eco-fiction, sci-fi. Here's some things I'll be keeping my eye out for. (1/8)
My bookshelf is 50% character-driven sff/speculative/spooky, 50% realistic contemporary/historical (coming-of-age romance, mystery/thriller, action-adventure, and verse novels), mostly by BIPOC, queer, or traditionally underrepresented folks, & my taste very much reflects that.
#MSWL Agents, I've been seeing some fantastic YA sff subs. I'll never say no to sff that captures my heart, but I'm also on the lookout for gorgeously written verse/prose, layered coming-of-age (historical or contemp) esp if it weaves in queer romance and/or mystery/suspense.
