Reading THE SWITCH & goddess, I’d love a queer BIPOC contemporary adult novel (could say women’s fic, but I’d love any marginalized gender) that has similar feels. Light romance, quirky characters, humor, & a heartwarming takeaway that makes you want to live your best life.#MSWL

My 1st #MSWL post for 2021.

I enjoy Shakespeare. I'd like to see a queer take on Shakespeare for #YA or #MG or even #PB.

We aren't actively looking at queries RN so it's ok to wait to submit until Jan. 4

For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL

For thrillers, I'm eager for some retellings (think THE WIFE UPSTAIRS). I'm not super into crime thrillers or domestic abuse, but I AM into fresh takes on a domestic psychological thriller. Again, not really into cop stories here either. As always, make it queer. #MSWL

For mystery, I'm mostly interested in cozy mysteries, particularly those created by & featuring queer, BIPOC, and QBIPOC characters. I want intrigue, humor, & fresh takes on all the fave tropes. Please no cop-centric stories. #MSWL

Strong hooks are a must. I would love to see more romance (& any genre) with nonbinary/trans characters as well. And just saying, cowboy books are hot & all, but what about sexy cowgirls or nonbinary animal wranglers!? All those het faves, I'd love them queer! #MSWL

Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL

Mystery, in certain subgenres! I saw an editor #MSWL asking for “fresh cozies for millennial readers,” which, yes please! As in YA, I'm absolutley looking for queer mysteries. Some dislikes: No young children in harm’s way/being secretly evil. No cop MC’s or love interests.

Paranormal YA fantasy (can we just call it that again?) Vampires and vampiric beasties, especially queer, especially non-western versions—give me the manananggal! The pontianak! The estrie! But really, any creature that lives a little outside the mainstream and in shadows #MSWL

Queer YA genre fiction of any kind. Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller (I didn't know I liked thrillers, but SURRENDER YOUR SONS got me this year), Sci-fi, Romance, Historical, Horror (as long as it's not too grisly; think Hill House, not Halloween). Most especially from QBIPOC #MSWL

2/ My primary focus is #OwnVoices stories by Black and/or BIPOC authors, disabled and chronically ill authors, and LGBTQ2S+ authors. I love the #SpineSquad with all my heart, but it is still a majority white group and my goal is for that to change in the future.
