Last year, the PW salary survey reported that Latinx people only made up 3% in the industry.

As a Latina editor, I can use my acquiring power to buy and booze the stories of Latinx people. And this is how I can do my part for #DignidadLiteraria.

Agents, my MG & YA #MSWL is:

✨ Contemporary; slice of life; coming of age; LGBTQIA+; coming out stories
✨ Mysteries and adventures
✨ Paranormal/supernatural especially brujxs, witches, vampires, wolves
✨ Plays with tropes

Lastly, we're looking for really great paranormals, whether it's #adult or #YA. On a personal note, I'm watching through Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time ever, and I would love to see something like this #MSWL

The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.

Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.

Kelly O'Connor Lonesome @kellyoc5 · Jan 2

My favorite themes & tropes: monsters (werewolves, sirens, witches, vampires), hauntings, cults, fairytales, toxic relationships turned fatal, family dynamics, class & power imbalances, revenge, meta horror, body horror, psychological terror... #mswl

#MSWL I would love to see more vampires! Send me your PoC and LGBTQIA+ vampires!

#amquerying writers, I'm going to dedicate time over the holidays to read submissions, so now is a great time to query!

I'm eager to find more middle grade, from contemporary standalones & illustrated MG to sweeping adventure & fantasy series. I'd love more YA contemp & grounded YA fantasy or "twist of magic" stories, too. And YA paranormal (I'm here for your vampires & werewolves) #mswl

I've been thinking a LOT about what I'd like to see in a YA vampire book revival and it's this: teen girl pursues becoming a vampire because she wants power #MSWL

Sarah E. Younger @seyitsme · 29 Sep 2019

Guess I should tag this thread w/ #MSWL & #PNR & #F & #Vampires #Adult #A (no YA or MG, not my rep'ing jam. Props to my fellow agents who rep those age ranges, but not my expertise.) Also if you sub me w/a project like this feel free to reply to this thread to give me a heads-up.

Y'all, are vampires coming back?

Ok, so I was a huge vampire person when I was younger. I'm kind of over vampires, but I know they are coming back, so #mswl if you have super evil vampires I'll take a look! Scary horror vampires! Or how about two evil vampires who try to kill each other and then fall in love?

Shelly Romero @_smromero · 24 Sep 2019

✨ Latinx MG & YA (contemporary; rom-coms)
✨ Vampires! Especially if by authors of color
✨ Atmospheric small-town settings with lots of (deadly) secrets

Kaitlyn Johnson - Closed to Queries @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

I'm open to vampires! You've just got to give me something different, unique, with a wonderful plot or setting. Still thinking there's so much we can do with New Orleans POC vamps or vamps in island regions.

Also would love vamps with the humor of What We Do In The Shadows #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 24 Sep 2019

#mswl - I would love a fresh take on YA paranormal: vampires or werewolves like we've never seen them before, or a sprawling ghost story. Something that feels both grounded and also epic in terms of it scope and stakes.

Headwater Literary Management @HeadwaterLit · 24 Sep 2019

Replying to @HeadwaterLit

Supernatural things I like:
-places that have their own life
-non-traditional vampires
-monsters from less well-known folklore
-Baba Yaga's chicken foot house

Hannah VanVels @hannahvanvels · 24 Sep 2019

Paranormal, please! Friends, I blew through the TWILIGHT books SO quickly when they came out. And I think that vampires are making a comeback, and this is a hill I will die on. #YA #MSWL

jen says buy SICK KIDS IN LOVE @bookavid · 24 Sep 2019

And a bunch of other things I wanna extra see:

Black authors, polyamory, bisexual boys, m/m by queer men, funny women's fiction by POC, mermaids, vampires, ghost love interests, monster kissing books, ALIENS, sapphics, ownvoices! #mswl
