I'd love a super romantic, totally swept off their feet, passionate YA love story, featuring Black characters (written by a Black person, please). Straight or queer, I don't care. Just heavy on the romance. Realistic contemporary preferred but that part's not a dealbreaker. #mswl

When I open to queries on 11/1 I really really really would love to find a #middlegrade or #yalit ms that is both Jewish & features Black, Asian or Latinx main characters. #ownvoices for both & bonus points if it hits both funny & poignant notes. Gimme uplifting & joyous! #mswl

I'd love an #ownvoices upmarket 20th C historical fiction - ideally with a secret something that has to be revealed (I'm thinking ala Lovecraft Country without the Lovecraftian horror/fantasy elements, which is ridiculous to say but I want it) #MSWL

Also, I really was not a fan of being first gen as a kid. I kind of push backed on German culture because I wanted to fit in with my peers. MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING but MG and #ownvoices for your culture. Because sometimes it is hard being caught between two worlds. #MSWL
