Amarilys Writes & Edits @AmarilysWrites@entangledpub has been feeding me (and the world) quality romance stories since my university years, so I'm thrilled to announce that I’ve joined their amazing team as an acquisitions editor 🎉🌈✨
I can’t wait to begin this new adventure chapter in my career and get closer to bringing more diversity into the publishing world.
Manuscript wish list #mswl coming soon!

Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖
Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl
Guess whaaaat? I'm taking pitches for the @SavvyAuthors Sweetheart Pitchfest!
- Adult Spring/Summer Romances and Holiday Romances (G-Rated, 75,000+ words).
- Romantic Suspense (any heat level, 50,000+ words).
On Sunday, Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” became the first film not in the English language to win an Academy Award for #BestPicture. Diversity & representation are so important in our movies and our literature, and we are always searching for new and important stories to tell! #mswl

This is wildly wrongheaded. In light of this, I’d be really happy to see MG BIPOC twists on THE WIZARD OF OZ & THE SECRET GARDEN in my query box. #MSWL
T.S. Ferguson @TeeEssIf somebody wanted to write an Utena-style pseudo-contemporary diverse fantasy with sword-fighting, butch and femme queer girls, and colorful, floral imagery, and then have their agent sub it to me, I wouldn't be upset. I'm just sayin'. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/SwBm0qMz5Y
This is still #MSWL!
