Diverse

moving on to adult romance now:
*this goes for everything, but I will repeat it - more diverse characters and a range of diversity rep
*I consider any heat level, but "moderate" is my favorite, not too sweet and not too spicy, it's just right for me

I’m always looking for #YA contemporary romcoms written by diverse authors that feature POC and LGBTQ+ characters. The lighter and fluffier, the better! #MSWL

I'm also all about epic, sweeping fantasies. I'd love to see thoughtfully built, fresh-feeling worlds (bonus points if they contain rich magic systems), inhabited by complex characters. And I'm always excited to see fantasy from diverse voices! #MSWL

Happy #MSWL day! I acquire *only* adult fiction w mystery, suspense, & crime elements, but in those categories, I'm looking for concepts featuring:
+ Domestic susp w *fresh* hook
+ Small-town mysteries w series potential
+ Dark, twisted, macabre
+ diverse voices, own voices

You know what I’d love to see done well? An erotic romance story set in a brothel in space. Basically, The Expanse meets Copper. #MSWL

Still looking for a well-done erotic romance story set in a brothel in space. Would also take SFF space opera without romantic element set in a brothel in space. Give me tons of aliens, a diverse cast & a kick-ass Madam! #MSWL

Emmanuelle Morgen @EmMorgen · 12 Sep 2018

It’s #MSWL day! Top of my wishlist this fall is romantic comedy that’s diverse/game-changing in some respect. That comments on our world.

In all of these genres and categories, I would especially love to see work from marginalized and diverse creators #MSWL

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa · 12 Sep 2018

Another gentle reminder: The Amberjack publishing team as a whole is diverse (often intersectionally!) and women-led. While we welcome stories by all authors, we strongly encourage stories by authors of color and other underrepresented backgrounds. #MSWL

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 12 Sep 2018

Hot on my list for #mswl are #ownvoice contemporaries featuring diverse characters.

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · 12 Sep 2018

Honestly, so much is just not being told yet that there's such a wide variety of diverse stories I just can't say I want till it shows up on my door. Best thing of course is a great story, well written. #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · 12 Sep 2018

And as far as diversity goes, I am particularly seeking new authors of color and indigenous authors. #MSWL

We are still actively seeking contemporary Native American narratives for MG & YA, novel and graphic novel. I'd also love more books about black girls/by black women.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I want diversity always. Any kind of diversity you have I want. #MSWL

Jessica Watterson @JessWatterson · 12 Sep 2018

Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL #MG please. No high fantasy, horror, sci fi but otherwise I will be open to (end of Sept), especially to #diverse voices, strong hooks, compelling plot, amazing characters. Even better if humor laced throughout drama or drama laced throughout humor.
