LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings
Manuscript Wish List Day is today, February 8th!
Not only will agents and editors be Tweeting their Wish Lists for diverse books in all genres, but I hear there’s a big surprise brewing! I’m posting this ahead of time so I can’t talk about the surprise but I wanted to entice the uninitiated into checking out the hashtag #MSWL (just please don’t use the hashtag–it’s only for agents and editors today). You never know what could happen!
For instance, you might see an agent tweeting that they’re looking for YA fantasy with LGBTQ+ characters, or adult Multicultural Romance by #OwnVoices authors.
Check out this link for a quick how-to guide to get the most out of the event!
If Twitter isn’t your thing, the MSWL web site is packed with articles and agent/editor bios, to help you find someone who’s looking for the kind of fiction (or non-fiction) you write. Whether it’s LGBTQ+ or multicultural or a book about a woman of science and her amazing discovery, an agent or editor somewhere wants to help it get published so we can read it!
I’m not saying it’s easy to find an agent or editor, only that #MSWL is a great resource to learn about the business of writing and what a good agent can do for you. A lot of diverse and truly wonderful books would never see the light of day without advocates like the ones you’ll find on #MSWL—the deck is stacked against change in general, and #OwnVoices in particular.
Even if you’re not looking for an agent, maybe Retweet a thing or two that sound interesting. You never know who’s out there looking, and someday you might be able to read that book!
