MG/YA #MSWL :
☑️ Horror
☑️ SFF (especially afro-futurism & magical realism variety)
☑️ Mysteries/Thrillers (would love some chilling psychological thrillers)
☑️ Historicals with a twist (spec, queer, mystery, etc.)

#MSWL Update Thread:
All-Ages:
☑️ BIPOC
☑️ Queer/Trans
☑️ ND
☑️ Disability
☑️ Religions & spiritual beliefs that are underrepresented in publishing
☑️ Intersectionality

The world we live in is diverse. Books written for kids in the 21st century should reflect that

#MSWL Definitely in my nostalgia era: would love to see fun teen spy/heist/secret society books like I read ten years ago! I *adored* Ally Carter's lively plotlines and would love to see new takes with similar levels of fun/adventure, especially from BIPOC and queer authors!

8) Queer & disability norm worlds. Anything that turns on a perceived weakness that turns out to be a strength.

and finally

9) Books that channel the anger at our world, our politics, injustice into something powerful. Like Those Beyond the Wall by Micaiah Johnson.

And, on that note: I open to queries on Monday, July 1. I feel like I should update my #mswl accordingly, but be prepared, it's a mish mash:

1) Romances with BIPOC, queer and disabled leads. I'm dying for joyful books that touch on real world challenges without dwelling.

First I want to reaffirm what I'm about. I'm OBSESSED with my clients and their writing. I want more than anything for them & their books to succeed. That is my job.

I not only support but celebrate ALL authors, and especially BIPOC, disabled, neurodiverse, queer & trans authors

- folklore and mythological retellings, particularly non-Eurocentric/non-Greco-Roman/non-Christian traditions
- neo-western
- unconventional, unreliable, unlikeable narrators and central characters
- trans and queer joy, but also trans and queer rage
- diverse perspectives

in terms of GENRES and NARRATIVES, I love:

- dark academia
- horror
- gothic, esp. regional gothic
- character-led literary fiction
- historical + alternate history, particularly 19th and 20th century and particularly focused on international, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ stories

I’m looking for female-driven/LGBTQIA+/BIPOC-driven thrillers, especially if they’re messy, messy characters. I love a good ensemble cast and odd dynamics. Do you have a DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES / REAL HOUSEWIVES-esque thriller. #amquerying

Here's a bit of an overview of my #MSWL . Comedies! Hilarious family drama and/or funny situations characters get themselves into. Anything that makes me laugh out loud! If it’s got a comedic element with a strong female, BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ protagonist, PLEASE! #amqueryng
