I'm also very eager to support books about marginalized characters, by marginalized creators. BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, neurodiversity, and disability representation is more than welcome here!

#MSWL for trans voices in that comp @ryka_aoki's The Light from Uncommon Stars. I'm blown away not just by the voice, but by the originality of the story, the heart, the narrative scope. It's breathtaking. We need more trans joy in SFF. Send them my way.

✨Contemporary fantasy steeped in a music scene set during the Motown era or the golden age of Rap with a touch of magic. #BVM
✨LGBTQIA+ voices in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror
✨Spirited Away and everything Studio Ghibli are evergreen #MSWL comps for me.

✨In the generes I rep, I'd love to see more projects by writers from Black, Indigenous, Latine/x, Asian, AAPI, Middle Eastern, and African communities and their far-reaching diasporas, as well as the LGBTQIA+, trans and nonbinary, and disabled and neurodiverse communities. #MSWL

I'm watching the new Father of the Bride and I want to see a story about the sister. #mswl a story about a queer girl who is seen as a failure by her family and gets tasked to design the whole wedding parties attire.

Happy Friday!

Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!

I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent

I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!

Needed more words 😅:

Looking for this in YA and Adult!

If you don’t have horror, my next wish is contemporary women’s fiction featuring a main character or ensemble cast in the mid-20 - mid-30s. I’m not married and don’t want kids; I have hangovers and lesbian drama 🥳 #mswl
