Today is my first day at wiley business! Here's what I'm looking to acquire: business & leadership with crossover into self-improvement, personal finance, & memoir, particularly focused on underrepresented perspectives, & bipoc, lgbtq, neurodivergent voices! #mswl

Hey #PitMad! So sorry I cannot participate tomorrow. I’m swamped with MS right now (went a little request heavy in the early year!) but my request pile is thin on Literary LGBTQ works & nonfiction (fitness, LGBTQ, education, political). Send any of these! Query me anytime! #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodosLet it be known that I adore the FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise, but come on, don’t try to tell me this series follows any kind of logic when I’m supposed to believe that Letty is straight pic.twitter.com/gePzdgOHh9
Anyway, if you’ve got an f/f car heist adventure-romance novel to query, #MSWL
Time for an updated #MSWL post! 🌟
First and foremost, I'm looking for BIPOC voices, queer voices, disabled voices, and generally, voices from historically excluded backgrounds.
MG/YA #MSWL cont:
☑️ Queer ballet (if you caught #QueertheBallet's ANIMALS & ANGELS last month, I WANT THEIR STORY!!)
☑️ Found families
☑️ Stories where race, gender, sexuality aren't the center. They can just be bad-ass characters!
☑️ Horror (darker the better but keep it in the age category)
☑️ Rom-coms with a hook
☑️ Spec (especially afro-futurism & magical realism variety)
☑️ Mysteries (gimme the new Westing Game!!!)
☑️ Historicals with a twist (spec, queer, mystery, etc.)
All-Age Category #MSWL wants
☑️ Religions & spiritual beliefs that are underrepresented in publishing
Basically: The world we live in is diverse. Books written for kids in the 21st century should reflect that.
hi #amquerying & #WritingCommunity folx,
i’d love to see more:
• contemporary stories for MG-Adult
• rom-coms, especially in YA (queer & diverse). I want a BIPOC f/f story so badly!
• twisty YA thrillers and horror (& adult, always!)
