BIG #MSWL item for me:

Upmarket fiction, #ownvoices #Indigenous stories that feature sports. Think Olympics, long-distance running, rock-climbing, snow sports, mountaineering, etc.

Ideally with strong character arcs and a commercially appealing external plot.

This book was a favorite of mine growing up. Would love a adult version that is written by #ownvoice (as I don’t think this was). #mswl

I'd also love to see #ownvoices Latin-America-inspired mythological fantasy. It could be contemporary, historical, or a fresh retelling.

Anything featuring my favourite animal gets bonus attention.

For the romance genre, some of the keywords that pique my interest in a query are: sapphic, #ownvoices, rom-coms, historical, nerdy, fun, fantastical, rivalry, and academia.

If your query contains one or two (or more) of these words, I'd love to read it!

#OwnVoices stories particularly if you identify as BIPOC. As a mixed-raced Latinx immigrant myself I am passionate about representing under- or misrepresented voices. If you are comfortable, please include your background and inspiration.” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL
