When I open for queries on 11/1 I’d love to see some super sapphic YA romcoms in my inbox. Any of the romcom tropes (yes, with a HEA!) and make it gay and make me laugh. Even better if written by a #BIPOC author! #YAlit #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amwriting #agent #mswl

I want a YA or Adult Rom-Com that is so cute, funny, and steamy. If yours includes an interracial relationship, I'll be your best friend! And when it comes to love stories, I am especially open to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC. #MSWL

Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

I would LOVE an LGBTQ+ rom com where they just ARE. They love, they fight, they live.

Give me POC who don't have to justify themselves constantly. They can have their own plot and action and agency and not answer to others.

Countdown #MSWL Day 2:

Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.

I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.

Queer f/f, nb/nb, or f/nb rom coms—noticing a very rainbow-hued pattern here—with all and any trope for the lady and non-binary lovahhhs.
