Hannah VanVels Ausbury is ready for RevPit 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvels

I am open to queries and would love to build my list in 2023.
🌟Query: QueryManager.com/HannahVanVels
🌟MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/hann…

First and foremost, I'm building an inclusive list with a variety of voices and genres. I'm looking for BIPOC authors, queer authors, neurodivergent authors, disabled authors, and generally, authors from historically excluded backgrounds. #MSWL

I love Romance, but I also love all the ways we mess up and/or complicate our lives CHASING it. Also, chasing monogamy is boring me rn. I’d love to see a QUEER BIPOC coming-of-age/women’s fiction abt a fun-loving, bighearted dyke whose quest for love leads to selfish chaos. #mswl

I am as always actively seeking manuscripts from queer, trans, disabled, and neurodivergent writers, BIPOC, and other marginalized populations.

Fantasy romance, especially queer fantasy romance, like A MARVELLOUS LIGHT. Happy to receive both dark and cozy romances!

Pondering my current #mswl. I’d still love to see some high-concept YA romance (if queer then all the better) that addresses the climate crisis… ecological, possibly international, could be a version of our world, could be fantasy?

Two specific #MSWL items that will be on my list when I reopen to queries:
1, survivors of family "reunification" programs (like Building Family Bridges), fictionalized or NF accounts
2, fiction that explores the unique friendships between gay men and lesbians

My daily life is centered around being fine as hell in all-black and dodging lesbian drama while throwing ass. Like please, give me characters who are about that life!!!! #mswl

That whole social climbing, marriage aspirations is not my lane, honey.

Writing that's sharp and biting, or writing that's lyrically astounding. Is there a touch of magic? A heap? Yes, I want it.

And I want all of it to be BIPOC and/or queer.

I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!
