I'm open to queries again! Would love some compelling YA/MG (maybe some social justice thrown in?), can't-put-down Book Club fiction, a good Thriller #ownvoices #MSWL stringerlit.com

#MSWL Anyone have an #ownvoices horror that combines Octavia Butler, Lynch and elements of David Robert Mitchell?

Is anyone else into the show Let's Eat because I'd really love a #ownvoices #DV, contemporary #YA book with the same kind of style about a MC who just lives for food. Also if it could include some mouth-watering descriptions I would appreciate it. Cool thanks! #mswl

#MSWL I devoured Trail of Lightning, and now I'm deep into Storm of Locusts. I'd LOVE to find another fabulous indigenous author writing #ownvoices.

P.S. just FYI as a former ballet and ballroom dancer (way former) I am obsessed with #Hiplet so if you have #ownvoices stories I want to see them. #MSWL #WF #Romance

For the record, I always want #ownvoices disabled manuscripts. I am disabled myself and also have a degree in disability studies #MSWL

Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.

Happy Monday, everyone! Today is brought to you by the letter "M" so I figured, why not do some #MSWL! (See, what I did there? Yeah, no one ever said I was cool.)

So, if you have a MS that matches something I'm looking for, please query me! I'd love to see it in my inbox.

When it comes to literary, I actively search for #ownvoices works, but especially those from the POC, immigrant, and LGBTQ+ communities. I'm not really looking for Americana stories right now. Nothing wrong with being the next John Steinbeck, it just wouldn't be for me. #mswl

ULTIMATE #MSWL please someone give me an #ownvoices #Hmong #YA novel about immigration and the #SecretWar. We need this story, especially for teens. No more hidden history.

There is not enough representation of people with chronic illness (whether visible or not) in literature.
I would LOVE to see an #ownvoices YA featuring a protagonist with a chronic illness. The story needs to be told. #MSWL bit.ly/31Jy0pg

Hey #MSWL: Am seeking a great love story with dimension, humor, and a strong commercial hook. Think ONE DAY or THE LIGHT WE LOST, but not necessarily a weepy. I am esp eager to read #ownvoices stories or underrepresented narratives in this space.

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · Jun 13

Iโ€™m looking for a contemporary romance (single title length) or a rom-com thatโ€™s #ownvoices, #diverse, #poc, and/or #lgbtq. #mswl #amquerying #writingcommunity

#MSWL: These are true heroes and we need to hear their stories. #ownvoices
