When I open for queries on 11/1 I’d love to see some super sapphic YA romcoms in my inbox. Any of the romcom tropes (yes, with a HEA!) and make it gay and make me laugh. Even better if written by a #BIPOC author! #YAlit #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amwriting #agent #mswl

I want a YA or Adult Rom-Com that is so cute, funny, and steamy. If yours includes an interracial relationship, I'll be your best friend! And when it comes to love stories, I am especially open to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC. #MSWL

I've noticed some things I always fall for:

Wine shops/wineries
Swamps
HIlariously awkward gay boys
Historical where they brush fingers and is a MOOD
MG where girls like ghosts and frogs and deep convos
Flying ships
Nerdy yet awe-inspiring talents
ANGST

I would LOVE an LGBTQ+ rom com where they just ARE. They love, they fight, they live.

Give me POC who don't have to justify themselves constantly. They can have their own plot and action and agency and not answer to others.

Queer YA or adult horror by an author of color, I need it. Maybe it’s because it’s October, but I’m craving a queer MEXICAN GOTHIC or THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING, or something like in the vein of WILDER GIRLS by an author of color. #MSWL
