#MSWL I'm looking for something I've never seen before primarily adult or YA in fantasy, romance, historical, suspense, mystery #ownvoices

Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaque · 12 Sep 2018

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.

I’m seeking #MG and #YA that explores the mythology and folklore of cultures from around the world by #ownvoices writers. Would love to see this in a graphic novel! #MSWL

So before it gets too late, let's do some #MSWL tweets!

Firstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL

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

Allison Lyons @Allison_Lyons · 12 Sep 2018

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

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 12 Sep 2018

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.

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · 12 Sep 2018

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

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · 12 Sep 2018

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

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 12 Sep 2018

#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).

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 12 Sep 2018

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
