Thank you all for the congrats on my promotion! For my #MSWL, I'd love to see more big diverse family sagas like @anndcardinal's The Storyteller's Death. I'd also love a high concept, high heat romance that is akin to what @katee_robert is doing with her Dark Olympus series.

If you’ve got a middle grade or YA high-concept fantasy where the diverse cast of protagonists try their best to be good and kind in the face of evil, like in THE DRAGON PRINCE, my inbox is open! #mswl

I’m so excited to open to queries Friday, March 26th, so here are some of my current top #MSWL items!

💫 Diverse romance is at the top of my list. I’m desperate for queer contemporary, historical or rom coms f/f or nb/f), as well as roms by BIPOC creators! All tropes welcome.

Hi #amquerying friends, I'm reopening to queries at midnight tonight and I wanted to do an #MSWL thread to share my current #top5 wishes and wants. More details can be found on my website at evascalzo.com/mswl 1/7

But for all these wishes, I would love to see diverse stories from diverse authors. Not just BIPOC, but queer and disabled voices sharing stories that share their joy across a broad range of age categories. #MSWL 2/7

10: Feminist and/or queer romcoms, especially non-idealized depictions of polyamory and t4t romance. I don’t have comps for these! The closest I’ve come is the work of Xan West, parts of the TRANSCENDENT anthologies, and the gender diverse pronoun ed. of CAPRICIOUS.

I’d also happily take on another Regency series or two, including those set outside of London. Diversity within the world required. Oh, and I like ‘em spicy :) Submission guidelines in my pinned tweet. #MSWL #HistoricalRomance

Just re-watched Akeelah and the Bee and remembered how much I LOVED it as a child. Like, 10 yo me could not stop saying "pulchritude." It has its problems, but its hopeful message and diverse cast are things I NEED RIGHT NOW. If you have MG like this, please give it to me #mswl

For all of the above:

-Diverse experiences and marginalized voices are essential.

-Books that uplift women and are intersectional are a must.

-I love both books fueled by rage, as well as books that make me believe in love and joy #MSWL 6/7

The new book of my dreams is a Brooklyn 99-esque romance with all the things I love about that show (diversity, inclusion, humor, creativity, healthy relationships, etc., etc.) and no actual police work. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! #MSWL

Finishing Home Baked by Alia Volz makes me hungry (no pun intended) for more memoirs of remarkable people, extraordinary lives and eccentric stories. Especially from diverse backgrounds. #mswl
