💫 I would looove a cozy mystery in the vein of FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT, but make it queer and from a BIPOC creator. Non cop-centric lighthearted mystery with some serious patriarchy ass-kicking & maaaaybe a sexy time or two. Not steamy necessarily, just sexy. #MSWL

"Cozy mysteries centered around siblings & involving a sweet twist! Maybe they’re siblings running a bakery, or the local baker dies mysteriously + the siblings need to solve the murder while keeping the bakery afloat. You tell me!" @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

For mystery, I'm mostly interested in cozy mysteries, particularly those created by & featuring queer, BIPOC, and QBIPOC characters. I want intrigue, humor, & fresh takes on all the fave tropes. Please no cop-centric stories. #MSWL

Generally, I'm looking for mostly Adult right now, and specifically from BIPOC and QBIPOC creators. Contemporary romance, paranormal romance, historical romance, contemporary/upmarket fiction, cozy mysteries, thriller (non crime), light horror, & light fantasy. #MSWL

Mystery, in certain subgenres! I saw an editor #MSWL asking for “fresh cozies for millennial readers,” which, yes please! As in YA, I'm absolutley looking for queer mysteries. Some dislikes: No young children in harm’s way/being secretly evil. No cop MC’s or love interests.
