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
✨ Comps to DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, LOVE SUGAR MAGIC

#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

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?

#MSWL!
✨ Latinx MG & YA (contemporary; rom-coms)
✨ Vampires! Especially if by authors of color
✨ Atmospheric small-town settings with lots of (deadly) secrets
✨ Mixed format stories like THE KINGDOM, RULES FOR VANISHING, & ALL OF THIS IS TRUE

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

#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.

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
