My Manuscript Wish List
Hola! I'm Amy Acosta, a passionate and creative Latina with an obsession for stories. I'm looking for diversity rich YA, NA, and Adult romance stories with high concepts and a great voice, specifically Latinx and LGBTQ+ voices. My favorite stories contain unlikely casts, big families (related or not), personalities that stand out, worlds struggling against change, climate issues, high-stakes adventures, witty banter, badass princesses, uncommon shifters, magical academies, smart and sassy heroines/heroes, and LGBTQ+ rep across the rainbow.
CONTEMPORARY: travel rom-coms, big family cast (related or not), quirky small towns (think Gilmore Girls or Schitt's Creek), Caribbean and archipelago settings, basically Hallmark but more diverse
FANTASY: high-concept epicness like Throne of Glass, amazing worldbuilding like Tamora Pierce, badass princesses like She-Ra, dragons and cultures other than medieval-ish, flawed or collapsing magic systems
PARANORMAL: uncommon shifters like in Paranormal Princes by Charlie Cochet, Latinx witches, every day magic, magical academies, something like The Worst Witch but YA/NA, diverse culture gods and creatures, re-telling’s with a modern spin and diversity
There are some genres I do not work with simply because I’m not as well read in them: Horror, Thrillers, Mystery, Magical Realism, Time Travel, Religious, and Women's Fiction.
Love to work with new authors, so if you have something that fits with my mswl, send it over!
Fun facts about me:
I believe that love has no boundaries, that representation matters, that strawberry smoothies are liquid happiness, and that spaceships are very cool. One of my main goals is to help LGBTQIA+ and POC voices become mainstream and bring diversity into the publishing world.
