#MSWL for a witchy book that feels like this, almost PRACTICAL MAGIC-esque meets old wives herbal medicine.

And can we talk about sisters? Maybe witchy ones? In a queer & diverse YA novel? In a small town where douche bags get what’s coming to them? Just saying, I’d read it. #MSWL

This can all be for MG, YA, and Adult btw.

I'd love a spec fic with modern witches (small spells, hanging herbs, cats and comfy seats to read the grimoire). Think Sabrina bet less superpower and more everyday crystals, brews, etc. #querytip #amagenting

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
