For picture books, I’d love to see more stories about communities and family or cultural traditions. I’m also down for totally silly, wacky stories that make kids giggle. ☺️

I’d also be interested to see some more author/illustrated projects with bold, colorful styles! #mswl

Some #MSWL things I've been craving in my inbox:

🌈 Queer MG, especially first crushes
💙 Found family dynamics
🌳 Small towns/isolated settings especially with a speculative element

HORROR either in the lush, gothic, Crimson Peakian vein with sputtering candles, twisted family trees, forbidden corridors, etc.; or with a modern-day edge that cuts straight down to the nervy quick of our current moment, and would make Ari Aster or Jordan Peele proud #mswl

I read All You Can Ever Know in one long afternoon and like everyone else, I adored it. It's a wonderful memoir about adoption and race and family and should be required reading for everyone. #MSWL more memoirs like this!

On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart

Eternally wishing for an eerie, emotional horror story that could be compared to the Babadook. Or, Practical Magic. Give me a real family, with real traumas and challenges, at the center of the supernatural or otherworldly

I’m also really keen on black comedy, I loved My Sister the Serial Killer and would love to find writing in that vein as well as big juicy regional family drama that spans generations.

My list is pretty speculative so I'd love more contemporary! Anything that explores platonic and romantic relationships, family, growing up, difficult decisions, etc.

I will open back up to queries tomorrow! 🥳 In preparation, I'd like to do a #MSWL thread about what I'd love to see in my inbox.

As always, I'm on the lookout for queer representation. I'd particularly love to see:

1. More identity discovery/first crushes in MG
2. Sapphic YA rom-coms
3. More queer works by BIPOC authors
4. Queer stories w/ happy endings
5. Supportive queer found families

At the moment, I'd say I want to see YA and MG that leads with joy. Falling in love. Doing something exciting. Exploring new worlds. Kids with quirky passions. Humor. Families (of all configurations) that love each other. #MSWL

For Adult, send me your romcoms or category romances! I’m also looking for big, juicy love stories. I live for the feels. I love women’s fiction on the light and fluffy side. Family stories, etc. Those are my kinds of stories #MSWL

Across the board, I will be prioritizing authors from marginalized communities. I'd love to see more Southern fiction by marginalized authors, think BOYS OF ALABAMA or BLACKTOP WASTELAND. Still dreaming of a sweeping multigenerational family saga by a Southern BIPOC author.
