I’m just saying, vampire rom com. They’ve been alone for a sooooo long and all they want is their one true forever, probably queer because come on, LOVE. #MSWL

I'd really love a ghostly horror story that is one part all those sea shanties we can't stop listening to, one part The Lighthouse, and a dash of The Terror. Even better if it's BIPOC and LGBTQIA+. #MSWL

Send me All the Queer Things™️, but specifically send me #ownvoices stories where the #LGBTQIA representation isn't "the problem." Love stories! Mysteries! Saving the planet! Fighting evil! #mswl

What I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl

I will open back up to queries tomorrow! 🥳 In preparation, I'd like to do a #MSWL thread about what I'd love to see in my inbox.

As always, I'm on the lookout for queer representation. I'd particularly love to see:

1. More identity discovery/first crushes in MG
2. Sapphic YA rom-coms
3. More queer works by BIPOC authors
4. Queer stories w/ happy endings
5. Supportive queer found families

I haven’t even finished it yet and I can already tell you that if you can comp your book to Anna North’s OUTLAW (hello witches, feminism, wild west, QUEER), I’d love to see it. #MSWL

Who’s going to write and query me an historical f/f or f/nb romance? I want the hopeful, penniless spinster to swoon at the dusty riding boots of the embittered, lonely duchesse #MSWL

(If you’ve got one, btw, you don’t have to wait for my QM to reopen. I want it 👀)

#MSWL I’m really eager to see adult contemporary upmarket fiction about coming into your queer identity. Think bookclub-with-a-twist

Lastly, in Young Adult, I'm really only looking for queer, BIPOC, and disabled stories across all genres. If you could comp your book to THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA, FELIX EVER AFTER, or YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN, I'd love to see it! #MSWL
