Hey #writingcommmunity I'm looking for some specific things in my queries so here are a few #mswl items I'd love to see!

In #YA I'm looking for a few things. 1) Diverse, inclusive contemporary by #ownvoices authors 2) Send me something that will absolutely break my heart 3) strong voices in any genre 4) I always love a MC with an attitude and witty comebacks. #MSWL

Pst. This Friday I open up to queries at @PSLiterary again.

I really want to find more genre-blending literary fiction, diverse + inclusive YA, quirky non-fiction, and lots more.

Since I'm caught up on queries and subs to Jan 11th, I will take this time to say that for 2019, I'm on a major hunt for some diverse YA (in any genre). It's my #1 goal this year to find some books like those by Samira Ahmed & Jason Reynolds, or Neal Shusterman & Marie Lu #MSWL

Dear Universe,

I'd like to see some more contemporary MG submissions featuring video game nerds (and tournaments), awesome friendships, and relatable, diverse protagonists in the world.
