I’d love to see more rom-coms in both adult, NA and YA. Bonus points for intersectionality! (BIPOC, LGBTQ+ or both!) #MSWL

For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch

Lots of typos hahah But look, I am not a Nice Girl and I’m wild and I’m black and viet and queer and never had to be shy about it and that’s what the hell I want to see in contemporary stories. I just want queer kids being messy without apology or hesitation #mswl

Fuck burying your gays, somebody write a queer zombie novel where all of the folks who never got to be together in life rise from the grave to un-live happily ever after, while eating the brains of homophobes and transphobes 🤝

for my #mswl more queer narratives à la Neel Patel including characters coming out at later stages of their lives, particularly from BIPOC cultures. I think about this all the time. Every day. 1 AM on a Sunday after cheer up Charlie’s. Thank you and good night.

In honor of the horrible excuse for a human who posted on my community FB page about a “sex club” at the local middle school- her post including a photo of an adorable, hand-made flier for the gay pride club, please send me your queer MG stories. Let’s get ‘em published. #MSWL

- Contemp Romance w/ messy relationships like Who I Was With Her or Only Mostly Devastated.
- SciFi where teens are in charge. Add a queer romance to the story, and you're golden. Think The Darkness Outside Us.
-Horror, horror, horror! Creepy, gory, scary AF! (3/6) #mswl

I'm finally re-opening to queries. I have a few holes in my list so it's time for a #mswl thread.

- RomComs think Get a Life, Chloe Brown or By Any Other Name (heat value can be low to steamy).
- Historical Romance not set in Regency Era. Bonus points if features BIPOC or Queer main characters.
- Hard SciFi in the vein of Hail Mary or All Systems Red.

More queer stories please! All the queer stories! Romance does not need to be an element of the story. It can be, but it isn’t required. #MSWL
