Contemporary

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · Jan 5

I love the novels of @NicolaYoon & @jenniferniven. Smart, contemporary, emotionally powerful. If you're writing in this vein & have a new concept, a strong voice, do send me a query. #MSWL

Since I am bored at the library, let's do some #MSWL!

#MSWL Witches. Charmed withces, Practical Magic witches, witches like in THE THREE GRACES. I want witches in a contemporary setting.

I would love to find something in my queries that gives me those Friday Night Lights and Parenthood feels. Some contemporary YA that tugs at my heartstrings, makes me cry, and then smile to wash away the tears. #MSWL

Another thing on my #MSWL this year: a contemporary YA novel that makes me feel like I'm listening to Tracy Chapman's Fast Car.

I have a new #MSWL item--anything as gut wrenching and gorgeous as @rlynn_solomon's debut YA Contemporary YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE, which is out...TODAY! If you haven't read it yet, get thee to a book dispensary! chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/pr…

I'm seeking:
Adult: fantasy, thriller, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom. com., & mystery.
YA: fantasy, sci-fi, horror, contemporary, thriller, & mystery. I love dark & twisty, light & funny, & stories with or without romance. querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com #MSWL

I don’t have many contemporary romances in my box. Anyone have a “voicy” contemporary romance? Send query & 1st five pages in body of email to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #amquerying #amagenting

Here are a few #MSWL I'd love to see in my inbox in 2018!
-Author/illustrators
-Adult Category Romance (no erotic please)
-Cozy holiday reads/beach reads/chick lit
*think Sarah Morgan or Ali McNamara)
-YA contemporary romance
*strong voice and emotional conflict are a must*

Top of my wishlist for 2018 submissions = single title (85-100,000 word) contemporary romance with 40+ yr old protagonists. Sexy, funny, flirty, hot like LOVE GAME by @MaggieWells1 @SourcebooksCasa #MSWL #agenting #queries

@DebNemeth Room for any m/f in your #MSWL stable? pic.twitter.com/V8utaJUlRi

Yes, absolutely. I'm seeking lighthearted, feel-good m/f contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and romantic comedy too, as well as cozy mystery with romantic elements. #MSWL

Deborah Nemeth @DebNemeth · 12 Dec 2017

I'd love to acquire some lighthearted m/m, including feel-good contemporary romance, cozy mystery, romantic comedy, and romantic suspense. #MSWL

#MSWL I'd really love to see a YA/A female centered contemporary with Kimmy Schmidt, New Girl, or Jane the Virgin feels. Lots of Humor, complicated love story, and strong female characters. Make me laugh and cry in the same chapter.
