Where are all the girls and/or queer kiddos who are really into sports in kid lit? The narratives about relationships with your body and your friends and your crushes, through the lens of your athleticism and relationship to sports? #MG and #YA! #mswl

I’d also specifically love a YA elevated beach read featuring a female/female romance subplot :) #MSWL

I desperately want contemporary or fantasy romance novels with trans main characters where there is no bullshit transphobic reaction to the MCs transness from anyone anywhere ever. #MSWL

I don't get enough psychological suspense from POC and stories about POC. I'd also like to see more LGBTQ psychological suspense. Honestly, this goes for all genres I rep, but right now this is what I'm hungry for #MSWL

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!

Who’s writing a LGBTQ story that’s NOT a coming out story? If I rep it, send it my way #MSWL

I’d love to see a fun YA historical fantasy, especially if it’s queer and/or features POC! #MSWL
