OwnVoices

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 26 Apr 2018

Today's running away from me a bit, so I'm not sure I'll get a chance to peruse #DVpit. But I'm hungry for all diverse and #ownvoices books in #WF #Rom and #YA. #Dis is especially close to my heart. Query me here: QueryMe.Online/1008 #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 Apr 2018

Since I'm stuck on the phone with the bank I'll check out #dvpit, but don't forget that I'm actively seeking #ownvoices in adult--thriller, women's fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. #MSWL query me in case I miss your pitch.

I'm still really looking for an amazing YA Fantasy #ownvoices manuscript based off Native American/Indigenous American mythology or tribal lore! I still really want this story written by a Native American writer. Where are you?! #MSWL

.@bookendslit has always been a leader in the cozy mystery market, but the one thing we are missing is more diversity in cozies. #Ownvoices authors, please bring us cozies (and mysteries of all kinds). #MSWL @RachMBrooks

You know what I'm not seeing enough of? I'm not seeing enough diverse, #ownvoices psychological suspense. Give me something other than the white urban/suburban couple, please. #MSWL

Denmark has erected its first statue of a Black woman. ‘Queen Mary’ honors Mary Thomas, a resister of colonial oppression pic.twitter.com/x8B6uRYMt0

Okay so Queens of the Fireburn is an incredible title for a fantasy novel, so if someone could take inspiration from this bit of history and write an epic fantasy about a trio of black women rising up and starting a magical revolution that would be great #mswl #ownvoices

I'm so happy to be absolutely stuffed to the gills with fantasy/magic on my list, so please send me your contemp YA #ownvoice by WoC about WoC! #MSWL

#MSWL : women, diversity, and #ownvoices in sci fi.
Also desperately in need of a fantasy that takes me to an unexpected, far off land. Preferably with LGBTQ+ elements.

A #mswl reminder: I'm always looking for more WoC / #OwnVoices writers in my inbox!

Still looking / always looking for WoC / #OwnVoices authors in my slush pile. #MSWL I'm really in the mood for a fluffy contemporary YA or Women's Fiction and craft related NF

I would LOVE a m/m teen romance featuring a #Intercultural #Latinx couple where friends become more like Benny & Nina do in #InTheHeights #MSWL Better if it's #OwnVoices too! pin.it/xognnfo7vze34k

(This is why so much advice to writers is read, read, read: you can only see what's new if you already know what's old) #MSWL #querytip #amquerying

As a reminder, for fiction & NF I like: #ownvoices; campus novels; narratives featuring chronic illness, disability, nonbinary, queer characters; gentrification from POC perspectives; complications caused by class differences; books that make me think & laugh #MSWL #amquerying

Plot points I'd love to see #MSWL -- trapped in the wilderness, mom/school/PTO type stories, set in Alaska, magical food & always #ownvoices #diversebooks

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Mar 2018

I am scouring my inbox for psychological fiction, the next Big Little Lies, & more #ownvoices and #diversebooks #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 13 Mar 2018

I am definitely looking for more psychological suspense/thrillers. I'd really love more #diversebooks #ownvoices in that genre #mswl

All joking aside, I never actually wanted to make out with a person's voice until I heard Brendon Urie sing for the first time. Would love an #ownvoices retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac with three cute boys and a high school musical. #MSWL #LGBT

Random #MSWL I’m putting out into the universe: I would love a manuscript that tackles the disappearances of Native American girls and women, a la the movie Wind River. YA or Adult, #ownvoices. Ok universe...let’s make it happen. 🤞🏽

I'm still looking for this book. It doesn't have to be set in America, or even our world. What I'm really after is a book that engages with the abuses perpetrated against indigenous people, in particular women, and the colonizer's legacy of violence and oppression. #mswl
