Amy Acosta

Amy Acosta is a professional reader, writer, and editor of fiction. In the pursuit of craft knowledge, she completed a Writing Popular Fiction MFA with a focus on YA Lit, and became a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, volunteering with their Diversity Initiative. Amy has worked on bestselling titles for Penguin Random House Audio and Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. She joined Entangled Publishing in early 2020, and works with authors to create and polish the best version of their books. One of her main goals is to help LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC voices become mainstream and bring diversity into the publishing world. Amy lives in Puerto Rico with three very bossy rescue cats, and she ardently believes that love has no boundaries, that representation matters, and that spaceships are very cool. Amy is looking for diversity-rich YA, NA, and Adult stories with high concepts and unique voices in the genres of Contemporary (RomComs, High Heat Romances), Historical (Regency, Victorian), Fantasy (High Fantasy, Paranormal), and Science Fiction (Space Opera, Military SciFi). Her favorite stories contain unlikely casts, big families, personalities that stand out, worlds struggling against change, climate issues, high-stakes adventures, spaceships, witty banter, enemies to lovers, fake dating, strong friendships, quirky small towns, smart and sassy heroines/heroes, and LGBTQ+ rep across the rainbow.
