@RhondaMerwarth @HallmarkPublish Does hallmark take lgbt rom?

Replying to @heykaunlay

We are definitely open to lgbt heartwarming stories of love, esp. by #ownvoices. I've tweeted a few random ideas I had on #MSWL but I'm certainly not limited to those.

It's Adult day for #dvpit and it's my birthday🎈! So here's my birthday #dvpit wish-list: a lesbian detective series, diverse sci-fi (I ❤️ Becky Chambers), diverse historical and I'd love to find a high-concept with a darker side (think Black Mirror in a novel) #MSWL

Maisie Lawrence @MaisieFrances · Apr 25

Holla at #DVPit authors who are pitching commercial fiction! What I would love to find: a lesbian detective series, diverse fantasy or sci-fi, sweeping historical fiction with diverse characters. #MSWL

@Donovanesque For your mysteries, do they need to be holiday-ish?

Not at all! In fact, it's probably trickier to pull off a holiday-themed mystery. Great question -- thanks Candace! #MSWL #Hallmark #amwriting

Stacey Donovan @Donovanesque · Apr 24

Oh and I’ve mentioned this before but: the one caveat to our “U.S. settings only” is that you can set part of a story in a fictional country for a royal romance. 😊❤️👑 #MSWL #amwriting #Hallmark #publishing

Sharing the Hallmark Publishing submission guidelines again here: tinyurl.com/ydyckgan We adhere closely to these guidelines and are looking for books that would also be great Hallmark movies. Open to unagented submissions for now. #romance #mystery #MSWL #amwriting #amwriting

At Hallmark Publishing, we are still looking for wholesome romance for 2019 releases! Contemporary, light and fun stories, U.S. settings. An adopted dog or cat (never sick/hurt/endangered) is a plus. #MSWL #amwriting #publishing #books

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Interested in submitting your manuscript to @HallmarkPublish? Here are our guidelines, and how to submit: hallmarkchannel.com/hallmark-publi…. We look forward to reading your story! #MSWL

Tropes I love: celebrities, cowboys, fairy tale remakes, fake engagement, fish out of water, friends to loves, makeover, mistaken identity, road trip, opposites attract, return to hometown, reunion/second chance, royalty, etc! #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Rescue pets! @Hallmark is a huge supporter of this cause. Stories featuring animals portrayed in a positive and heartwarming light. Give us those cute puppers and kitties, please. #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

While we aren't publishing paranormal romances, we're open to small magical elements--an enchanted object, time travel, etc. I'd love to see a wedding-themed series with something considered a good-luck charm! Ooh, or even a "jinx," if a rom com? lol #MSWL @hallmarkpub

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Cozy mysteries! Series potential. Diverse stories welcome! I esp. love a heroine protagonist (bonus if romantic subplot developing over the series). Small or coastal town is fun too. Nothing dark, please--light tone with intriguing mystery. #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Royalty, royalty, royalty please! A prince in disguise? Mistaken identity? Fake engagement? Heroine is a long-lost princess? I'd love a swoony, sweet romance for @HallmarkPublish #MSWL

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

I'd love a chaste romance in the vein of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, or Band Baaja Baaraat (h/t to @suleikhasnyder for feeding my need for amazing Bollywood movies!! <3). Slow burn, sweet gestures, fun and witty characters. GIMME! #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Replying to @StilettoHeelsOn

I'm absolutely open to interracial couples for @HallmarkPublish. #MSWL

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Sweet wedding-themed romance featuring a protagonist w/ a disability that isn't considered a burden/negative, or gets "miraculously" cured in the end. Witty, fun banter and charming, swoony love interest. #ownvoices preferred. #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Rhonda Merwarth @RhondaMerwarth · Apr 10

Heartwarming, chaste black romance (esp w/series potential) by #ownvoices, please! Family and friends as important secondary cast. U.S. small town or big city is fine. Fun takes on favorite tropes. Would LOVE holiday themes too! #MSWL @HallmarkPublish
