Shraya's second novel The Subtweet was published on April 7th 2020 by ECW Press. The book is focused on an intense friendship between two women of colour musicians.
Quill & Quire reviewed The Subtweet in March 2020, concluding that "While it wrestles with the political realities of working in the arts and navigating social media, The Subtweet also elucidates certain social-justice modes of thought. Shraya’s narrative pushes back against the ways mainstream and pop-culture formulations of social justice are used to further agendas misaligned with principles of equity. It critiques the ways in which social-justice rhetoric can be wielded as a weapon for the purpose of self-aggrandizement or the pursuit of personal vendettas. The Subtweet attempts to nudge the reader toward a more critical perspective and to encourage the reader to be more skeptical of what comes out of the mouths of public figures, especially when money and politics are involved."
Shraya's first theatrical work debuted February 18, 2020.The work is called "How to Fail as a Popstar," chronicling "her journey to 'not quite' pop music superstardom.
