I'd also love to see #ownvoices Latin-America-inspired mythological fantasy. It could be contemporary, historical, or a fresh retelling.
Anything featuring my favourite animal gets bonus attention.
ABOVE ALL, I am looking for #ownvoices stories and books from POC / marginalized creators. We need more diverse stories. Period. I will do anything and everything I can to make sure more people, especially children, are represented in published books. #MSWL

For the romance genre, some of the keywords that pique my interest in a query are: sapphic, #ownvoices, rom-coms, historical, nerdy, fun, fantastical, rivalry, and academia.
If your query contains one or two (or more) of these words, I'd love to read it!
with all due respect to the totally understandable flush of kpop boy group romances, where is my #ownvoices kpop girl group thriller, give me the full frances cha here - the wealth of cultural knowledge, the sharp eye towards beauty, commodity, and performed intimacy #mswl
“#OwnVoices stories particularly if you identify as BIPOC. As a mixed-raced Latinx immigrant myself I am passionate about representing under- or misrepresented voices. If you are comfortable, please include your background and inspiration.” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL

Want to know what we are looking for? Here is our #MSWL: Women's Fiction, LGBTQ+ Romance & Coming of Age, Stories Featuring Differently Abled Voices, and Stories about Body Positivity and/or Neutrality
#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.
#MSWL MY DREAM PROJECT.
Does anyone have this???
🚀WAKANDA IN SPACE👽
... not actually Wakanda (copyrights you know?) but highly-technical, gloriously deeply cultural, #ownvoices only please. Wakanda x Star Trek.
