Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.

I want to acquire a YA regency romance with a diverse cast of characters. Who’s got one? Black historical romance authors are strongly encouraged to query. I’m interested in all angles of that period. #YA #mswl #amwriting

📚 More diverse, inclusive sport & competition stories! Send me entertaining stories that make palms sweat & hearts race & inspire us to get out & try something new. Underdog teams, determined solo athlete, and everything in between are fair game. So what counts? #MSWL

i'm desperate for diverse, commercial, soap-y, contemporary YA that is both highly aspirational and has high emotional stakes. basically, if it feels like a shonda rhimes show in book form, with teenagers, I MUST HAVE IT #mswl

I love finding out about cultural/ethnic/racial diversity in Judaism but feel so ripped off I didn’t always know the diversity of my own people. I want to change that for today’s Jewish (& nonJewish) children & teens. Please query me with your diverse Jewish MG & YA novels! #MSWL
