*romance* I love love ๐Ÿ˜ญ. I'm looking for own voices, fluff, every trope in the book (slow burns! enemies-to-lovers! trapped somewhere overnight & it's COLD & they have to HUDDLE omgomg) #MSWL

#MSWL Iโ€™d love to see more #ownvoices books about PoC that donโ€™t center racism as the conflict/hook

Agents, I would love a proposal for G-rated Christmas romance set in Santa Fe or Taos. Latinx main characters a bonus. #ownvoices #hallmark #CountdowntoChristmas #WritingCommunity #MSWL

I always love strong cultural themes in the stories I look for -my college major was anthropology & I love learning abt other people's worldviews - elevating these fosters understanding, inclusion & acceptance. #MSWL #diversevoices #ownvoices

Recent romances that I have loved and would like to see comps to:
- RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE
- THE BRIDE TEST
- THE RIGHT SWIPE

Basically, I want to see the next generation of romance. Millennials in romance, #ownvoices, underrepresented groups, and more. #MSWL 2/3

Iโ€™m generally not a good fit for music books, that being said, I would LOVE an #ownvoices #YA that takes place in the world of #kpop #MSWL

#MSWL I am DYING for a queer, #ownvoices contemporary surrounding mental health

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD GIVE FOR A QUEER STORY ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS WITH A LYRICAL VOICE

(hint: it rhymes with bowl and the devil would be happy to trade me)

Adding addendum to all my #MSWL posts from yesterday: Feel free to query wide range of representation of people, relationships, storytelling. I want #ownvoices, LGBTQ+, & all the things in my inbox, please! (but be sure to follow guidelines & only submit in the genres I acquire)

MIDDLE GRADE:
- #OwnVoices magical realism, reimagined folk tales, and sweeping, character-driven adventures
- Literary, contemporary stories about tween female friendship and the ins and outs of tweendom (if thatโ€™s a word)
