I still really want to see more vampire romances in my inbox. And not just your standard Lestat type—I want fresh, unusual perspectives and plots that make me sit up and take notice. #MSWL

Y'all, I'm really in the mood for some queer scifi romance, especially if it's somewhat light in tone. (Less BSG, more Firefly.) Spaceships, other worlds, fun times, please. #MSWL

Whoa whoa whoa, has there be a Victorian romance set around the Forty Elephants gang? Because I really need to read one.… #mswl

You know, I love workplace romances, but I'm dying to see more submissions centered around a non-office workplace. Send me some! Both queer and het romances welcome. #MSWL

I'm pretty sure I've put this out here before, but I want Hot Dude Librarian books SO MUCH. Both m/f and m/m welcome! #MSWL

I want to edit a m/m historical romance so bad, y'all. It's been too long. #mswl

If you have something up my alley or just like the cut of my jib, you can submit to me/@CarinaPress here: #MSWL

In terms of romantic pairings, I'm happy to read both straight & queer protagonists. Also love books with racial/religious diversity. #MSWL

Retail workplace romance (*cough*BOOKSTORE*cough*) is a lot of fun and something I don't see often. #MSWL

My favorite tropes are marriage of convenience, underappreciated Cinderella-types, and enemies to lovers. So all of that, please. #MSWL
