Now for some specifics! In romance, I am particularly interested in historical romances, and would love to see more diversity in my submissions. Let's see the Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian periods through different eyes.
Amanda Jain @wensday95I didn't get to peek at #KissPitch today, but hoping to do some poking around tonight and tomorrow. If I fave, please follow the submission guidelines at QueryMe.Online/AmandaJain.
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix#MSWL sci-fi that has an unexpected&captivating structure. Characters that have layers upon layers of depth. Sci-fi elements that inspire MC to change. One of my favorite SF movies/stories is ARRIVAL/STORY OF YOUR LIFE(Ted Chiang), for the unique time&relationship layout.
#MSWL LGBTQ+/Diverse characters a plus in all submissions.
#MSWL Adult fantasy with wild new magical systems/belief structures/world structures. Lace the magic into the world in surprising, original ways. Vivid settings, towering stakes, dynamic voices. Confident, unique perspectives. LGBTQ+/Diverse characters a plus.
In honor of the #alayma this morning, here is a #MSWL of the awards I'd love to have a client receive someday. The Schneider Family Book Award and The Stonewall Book Award. Even better if it's in one book! So send me your LGBTQAI+ and disability rep.
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvans#MSWL This! I'm sure a million people have asked for this, but put these ladies in space and give them an adventure that saves the galaxy. Every time this photo crosses my path, I pet it lovingly and say "one day." pic.twitter.com/ND7DvDUJlo
Omg yes. #MSWL

Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersSo, when I visited a school not too long ago, a boy in one of the high school classes I sat in on asked me if there were any books like Moonlight. Just saying. Let's publish a lot more books about poc who identify as lgbtqia+.
Here for it. (Also, check out the rest of the thread!) #mswl
Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarthI'd also kill for a diverse romcom for @HallmarkPublish -- light, fun, witty, with strong romance and lots of sweet moments. <3
I've been #MSWL this exact book for MONTHS. I want it too.
Kosoko Jackson @KosokoJacksonhi, yes, hello,
I'd really like to see, not only more black main characters in YA, but also black characters with black support systems; familial, friend, professional, academic.
Our readers should see themselves succeed, but so should our characters. pic.twitter.com/4zO0iPeNBl
