What I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl

I will open back up to queries tomorrow! 🥳 In preparation, I'd like to do a #MSWL thread about what I'd love to see in my inbox.

As always, I'm on the lookout for queer representation. I'd particularly love to see:

1. More identity discovery/first crushes in MG
2. Sapphic YA rom-coms
3. More queer works by BIPOC authors
4. Queer stories w/ happy endings
5. Supportive queer found families

#MSWL - something big, sweeping, ROMANTIC. I love love and I love romantic stories, whether they're romantic comedies or sweeping love stories. I want to see love against the odds stories.

For Adult, send me your romcoms or category romances! I’m also looking for big, juicy love stories. I live for the feels. I love women’s fiction on the light and fluffy side. Family stories, etc. Those are my kinds of stories #MSWL

I am actively looking for Latinx voices.

For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.

For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL

In MG, I want to see contemporary of all kinds, creepy/spooky stories, & again, grounded fantasy or speculative. In YA, I'd love to see more thriller, horror, Gothic, grounded fantasy or speculative, contemporary, rom-coms, & really lush literary fic.
