💫 In YA or MG, I’m looking for contemporary only: sapphic rom coms, f/nb roms, or super voicey contemporary from BIPOC creators. #MSWL

💫 I’d love a messy dysfunctional mother/daughter adult contemporary in the vein of VERY NICE, or a family saga a la THE MOST FUN WE EVER HAD, I’m here for it, particularly if you’re a BIPOC author or have a queer story in this realm! #MSWL

💫 I would looove a cozy mystery in the vein of FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT, but make it queer and from a BIPOC creator. Non cop-centric lighthearted mystery with some serious patriarchy ass-kicking & maaaaybe a sexy time or two. Not steamy necessarily, just sexy. #MSWL

I’m so excited to open to queries Friday, March 26th, so here are some of my current top #MSWL items!

💫 Diverse romance is at the top of my list. I’m desperate for queer contemporary, historical or rom coms f/f or nb/f), as well as roms by BIPOC creators! All tropes welcome.

Okay, time to share my #MSWL:
Children's, YA, & Pop Culture Nonfiction are my 🍞&🧈. I love stories of hope and humor, a good rom-com, strong female leads, and magic of all sorts! Big fan of LGBT+ and BIPOC joy. I don't love murder. DM me for query guidelines!

Hi #amquerying friends, I'm reopening to queries at midnight tonight and I wanted to do an #MSWL thread to share my current #top5 wishes and wants. More details can be found on my website at evascalzo.com/mswl 1/7

But for all these wishes, I would love to see diverse stories from diverse authors. Not just BIPOC, but queer and disabled voices sharing stories that share their joy across a broad range of age categories. #MSWL 2/7

If you’ve got the book, I wanna read it!

I’ll also take any BIPOC fantasy creatures; vampires, werewolves, witches. . . I’m not picky. #MSWL

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
