24/7/365 I welcome #ownvoices. I welcome all and would especially love stories by&about people of color, with disabilities (esp invisible), who have mental illness, who are LGBTQ, or who are economically disadvantaged #MSWL #wndb

I'd love to see books featuring strong law enforcement heroes in remote areas who must protect heroines in jeopardy for Harlequin Intrigue. Heart-stopping suspense, compelling backstories, believable plotlines. #ownvoices authors welcome and encouraged #MSWL

Dying for more magical realism women's fiction, or #ownvoice women's fiction contemporaries #mswl

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 12 Sep 2018

Hot on my list for #mswl are #ownvoice contemporaries featuring diverse characters.

If you write inspirational romantic suspense that is fast paced, exciting and full of danger, I'd love to see it for Love Inspired Suspense. #ownvoices authors welcome and encouraged. Check out guidelines here: harlequin.submittable.com/submit/29572/l…

I want a sparkly fantasy (think Mercedes Lackey or Robin McKinley) set in a non-European secondary fantasy world (with non-white protagonists, please!), and I would love it to be #ownvoices. #mswl

8. As always, I'm interested in diverse, queer, own voices, and feminist narratives. #mswl

#MSWL A modern retelling of Phantom or Hunchback. Naturally #ownvoices are prioritized here, especially if the story if told from the perspective of a disabled character (in any case apart from these retellings as well).

For adult fiction, I’d love cozy mysteries with a unique spin. Send me dark fantasy, epic fantasy…actually…just send me all the fantasy!!! I’d also like sci-fi with a science slant instead of aliens or a Star Wars remake. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 3/4

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

I’d like to see some high concept YA projects. Hook me with a YA contemporary that hasn’t been done before. Show me a unique SFF world with a different kind of journey—something unpredictable! I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 2/4

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

I’m looking for MG projects, especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror, & contemporary. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. Make me remember the magic of being a kid. I’d love to see characters dealing with their first crush, first period, and realistic everyday drama. #MSWL 1/4

Chiming in to share my #MSWL: Adult Fiction (sry no YA etc.) #OwnVoices #RomComs #LGBT+ #SciFi #Fantasy #WomensFic #Romance

I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍

Suzie Townsend @sztownsend81 · 12 Sep 2018

It's #MSWL day. Topping my list is commercial women’s fiction--particularly #ownvoices contemporaries; mother/daughter, sisters, or best friends stories for women in their 30s or 40s. Romance isn't necessary though I do love romance.

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL day! Just a blanket note that I'd love to see #ownvoices subs and POC authors for every wishlist item I post today--not just the ones I specify--and in my inbox in general.

Marie Lamba @marielamba · 12 Sep 2018

Longing for diverse fiction & nonfiction by #ownvoices, pb-YA; diverse adult fiction & memoir #mswl How to sub: jdlit.com/marie-lamba

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL I’m always going to be in the mood for a literary/upmarket #ownvoices family saga. I want something deep, addresses the generational divide, and will make me cry my eyes out.
