I had a meeting recently and we discussed a BIPOC Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since! #MSWL

book recommendation twitter—

anyone have recommendations for some ✨suburban✨ fantasy? like urban fantasy, except no detectives/cops, inner city, gritty stuff.

What are some books like that like...Desperate Housewives with magic?

Can I have this in kidlit with POC? I was convinced when I was a kid that nothing magical or even INTERESTING could ever happen for a Mexican kid in suburban TX like me, and I would have LOVED to have a fantasy novel prove me wrong #mswl

THIS!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 If a trope and/or trend has "already been done” but it's never been done by BIPOC authors, I want to read it 💜 This is forever on my #MSWL

I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #mswl

I'm *always* open to pitches, no MS needed, from BIPOC authors who have published romance novels (inc. self-published). To learn about pitching a Hallmark romance novel (not script), Christmas or no, slide into my DMs 🙂 Pass it on!
