I've got a #mswl! I'd LOVE to see a #middlegrade or #youngadult novel w/POC Jewish characters, preferably by an #ownvoices author. Although I'm not currently open to submissions I am open for that. Use my submission guidelines emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ & ignore the auto response.
Louisa @llwsI like to call this list the T. S. Ferguson Is Good at His Job list: bookriot.com/2019/02/13/div… @TeeEss @InkyardPress
I'd love a literary mystery. Some twisty suspense that feels *new* and avoids the girl-gone-missing trope (or turns it on its head).
More #ownvoices, please!
HORROR/a fresh ghost story.
Yr big ensemble cast that will make me cry. Make me cry, dammit! 🤗

Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
