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.

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.
