Q5. For Kate: Following on from the previous question: what would you like to see more of in romance, or possibly less of? #ukromchat @katenashagent @linalanglee pic.twitter.com/bjQY5tWKDS

Replying to @ukromchat

I'm looking for 1. Sweeping epics in war, like Gone With The Wind. 2) Romance reflecting today's UK diverse communities, such as inner cities or very rural. 3) a real Victorian rags-to-riches tear-jerker. 4) In romcom, new settings like @KarenAldous_ Alps #MSWL #UKRomChat

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

Another #MSWL: HOT DOG GIRL meets TWEET CUTE. I just need a rom com in YA do badly.

I'm devouring cheesy yet wonderful Hallmark and Netflix holiday movies. Surely a YA rom com in a holiday setting (Christmas market? Christmas tree farm? Santa photo studio?) would be as delightful? #MSWL

V for Vendetta @VeroniKaboom · Nov 24

Another trope I adore from indie rom-coms, weird sci-fi, and obscure non-US TV dramas is the uptight, emotionally/physically repressed person who falls for and pines over the free spirit, without judging, while FS teases mercilessly. Ex: Ins. Jack Robinson & Phryne Fisher. #MSWL

The Beccadook 👻 @RebeccaPodos · Nov 21

#MSWL a YA romcom set on Christmas Eve, except the mc’s are Jews so the holiday is really only incidentally mentioned, and they probably confess their mutual affection in a McDonald’s parking lot

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.

These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL

I am desperate for a romcom. Emphasis on the COM. #mswl

Rom-coms (for both #YA and #Adult) are also high on my list right now--a strong hook is a must but really I'm just looking for a wonderful, delicious escape. #R #CR #MSWL
