#MSWL *Think "If Bridgerton was an inspirational novel."
*Think "not an old-fashioned romance" but still set in opulent historical regency period.
*Think "not historically accurate." Give me diversity, sass.
*I am looking specifically for Inspy/Christian fic/clean" read romance

Or a dash of speculative in contemporary is great too! For YA fantasy, I love swoony, action-packed stories with fresh magic systems and diverse worldbuilding #MSWL.

I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or team—I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.

In YA & MG (incl GNs):
* Diverse contemporary stories that are authentic instead of trendy
* Novels that are by & about people whose tales are yet untold
* Soulful, insightful, & well-crafted projects
* Stories that leave me cackling 😆 or sobbing 😭 long after I've read THE END

A suspenseful #MSWL from @jenissamichelle!

"In YA, a buildup in suspense (13 REASONS WHY) with a diverse cast of characters. Similar to EVEN IF WE BREAK by Marieke Nijkamp or ONE OF US IS LYING where different POV's can help drive the plot."

I would love to find a juicy YA drama or thriller with strong characterizations and a rich setting (BIG LITTLE LIES, but make it diverse and YA and set in a fresh, intriguing location). #MSWL
