Throwing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿

I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:

🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities

🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity

🌀 the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement

💫 Adult magical realism from Latinx creators. Think the gorgeous, atmospheric, queer af writing of Anna-Marie McLemore and Samantha Mabry, but age it up into adult fic. #MSWL

💫 I’d love a messy dysfunctional mother/daughter adult contemporary in the vein of VERY NICE, or a family saga a la THE MOST FUN WE EVER HAD, I’m here for it, particularly if you’re a BIPOC author or have a queer story in this realm! #MSWL

💫 Paranormal adult rom com. I’m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. I’m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. 🤩🧛🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️#MSWL

💫 I would looove a cozy mystery in the vein of FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT, but make it queer and from a BIPOC creator. Non cop-centric lighthearted mystery with some serious patriarchy ass-kicking & maaaaybe a sexy time or two. Not steamy necessarily, just sexy. #MSWL

💫 Fat main characters in romance. I’d like some please. Body positivity only, no dieters or weight loss stories. If she just happens to be queer and wooed and adored by a super sexy love interest, I might use the phrase “dream come true” when requesting your full. #MSWL

💫 Specifically in historical romance, I’d love something non Regency, late 19th/early 20th century. Like Joanna Shupe, but QUEER IT UP. #MSWL

I’m so excited to open to queries Friday, March 26th, so here are some of my current top #MSWL items!

💫 Diverse romance is at the top of my list. I’m desperate for queer contemporary, historical or rom coms f/f or nb/f), as well as roms by BIPOC creators! All tropes welcome.

Monthly reminder that I'd really love some darker small town dynamic stories especially if they have found family, queer characters, a spooky forest and a light magical element.
