Hi all, back again with a #MSWL update.

I'd LOVE to get my YA romance list to match my adult romance list. @camilliemill and @chloe_liese have spoiled me rotten with inclusive, swoony romances.

For YA romance, I want all of the BIPOC rep, disability rep, and LGBTQIA+ rep 😍🤗

I loved everything about Sylvie's Love on @PrimeVideo: the 50s Harlem setting, the music scene, the love story. It's made me eager to find more historical romance/women's fiction featuring BIPOC characters. #MSWL

I would love a Black romance in the vein of Netflix's SOMEONE GREAT X JUST ONE DAY by Gayle Forman...

Someone please pull on my heart strings!

PLEASE read this thread. Every publishing professional I know *needs* to read this thread. 👇🏼 twitter.com/laviecestmoi/s…

Also, if you are a BIPOC creator and you see yourself & your stories in this thread (heck, I know I do): I WANT THEM. I will always want them. And I will fight for them. #MSWL

Officially wrapped on 2020 submissions! Agents, here's my #mswl for this year.

Before I start: I will always be looking to foreground queer and BIPOC voices, and on the hunt for killer hooks I can't even finish pitching without someone mashing the preorder button.

Let's go!

Where is the Adult Women's Fiction that transforms The Hangover or Bridesmaids into something very black or BIPOC and very queer? #mswl Fuck, give me A Devil Wears Prada that's but with anything but the corporate world. Black, BIPOC, queer only.

Got a rejection of and offer for the same book, within 5 minutes of each other today. I've said it before, authors, it only takes one. Rejections aren't personal. The game is trying to find the right match.

Whoa. This tweet’s getting a lot of love. Reminder: I’ll only be open to queries until February 15th. Looking for YA & MG ms, especially those written by Black authors & other POC, and LGBTQIA+ folx. Please see my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to query me with.

I am also still on the hunt for a The Mummy/Indiana Jones-esque story written by a BIPOC that tackles colonization. I love artifact finding stories, but we need to talk about the problems #MSWL

(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl

For all the books I work with, I prefer to work with queer creators and BIPOC creators, and strongly encourage those creators to send me their work. Regardless of genre, age, subject, I like lighthearted, emotional, hopeful, adventurous reads. #mswl

Not those "episode of the week", let's learn to be nice to people who have disabilities. I want the cool fun stuff they get to do after people stop being jerks! #mswl This also applies for POC, LGBTQIA and other groups that usually have "issue books." JOY BOOKS.

i was an ecology major, but somehow i still reference the episode of the wild thornberrys where eliza ruins the galapagos ecosystem by giving a bird a needle more than anything i learned in college.

anyways, i acquire MG now & i would ❤️ a BIPOC eliza thornberry-esque mc! #mswl
