As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl
Sarah E. Younger @seyitsmeHappy International Women's Day!!!!!

I am going to do 5 FEMINIST WISH LIST READS on this #InternationalWomensDay
1) I want to read Okoye's from story from Black Panther!! (Badass Feminist, General, Leader, WHO NEEDS HER OWN STORY. And if you want to write it ... Own Voices Pls.)

Louisa @llwsI like to call this list the T. S. Ferguson Is Good at His Job list: bookriot.com/2019/02/13/div… @TeeEss @InkyardPress
I'd love a literary mystery. Some twisty suspense that feels *new* and avoids the girl-gone-missing trope (or turns it on its head).
More #ownvoices, please!
HORROR/a fresh ghost story.
Yr big ensemble cast that will make me cry. Make me cry, dammit! 🤗

Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
