I’d love to have a YA set in Ancient Egypt. It can be historical, or a YA fantasy with magic, and gods and all the details. This is something I’ve always wanted to read! Send me some! #MSWL
Mara Delgado 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterSince I’m actively acquiring, here’s a bit of my mswl. A couple of things:
1. Diverse and Own Voices stories are always welcome in my inbox
2. Please don’t pitch me on twitter.
3. And of note, I’m only accepting agented submissions at this time!
I’m looking for historical romance that is warm and tropey, high concept and engaging. I also like high concept historical romance that goes dark and explores characters a la Kerrigan Byrne. Where are the diverse and #ownvoices historicals? #MSWL
Secondly, YA: I love genre stuff, fantasy, sci-fi, even the right historical. I'd love to see some really high-concept stand alone, too. And in all things, diverse voices, diverse stories, under-represented points of view, ALWAYS. #MSWL
