I've reopened to queries. My biggest #mswl's are #ownvoices AND #diverse light contemporary women's fiction and fresh romance.

Mary Cain @MaryCityOwl · Feb 8

Contemporary romances where the fun, fast-paced plot kicks off right away. #MSWL

Currently listening to The Last Five Years score. It makes me think I’d really like to see a YA contemporary where two main characters tell the story from different points in time and meet in the middle. That would be really cool. #mswl

I love a goo contemporary romance, ala ANNA IN THE FRENCH KISS or MEGAN MEADE'S GUIDE. Give me the feels and make me fall in love. Elevate the everyday so it is not my everyday. #MSWL

I’m always on the look out for culturally rich YA contemporary that will give my heart the warm fuzzies or make me ugly cry my eyes out. #mswl

Hey, #writers! Quick rundown of my submission changes (1/29/18):

- No longer accepting middle grade queries

- No longer accepting YA science fiction queries

- I am now accepting adult romance - this can be contemporary & historical!

Make me swoon and keep it sweet! I’m looking for wholesome, inspirational category romance. Can be contemporary, historical or make-my-heart-race suspense, as well as writers who understand the expectations of the line, and can provide great comp titles. #R #MSWL

I’m seeking more adult subs. I’m DYING for more thrillers, especially psychological thrillers. I’d LOVE more contemporary romances & romantic comedies. Send query & 1st five pages pasted in an email to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL

My inbox needs more #YA: sci-fi, horror, contemporary, thriller, & mystery subs. I’m also seeking fantasy, but it must be UNIQUE because that market is saturated right now. Send query &1st five pages pasted in email to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL

Dying for the literary, emotional, contemporary love story YA of my dreams. If I put this out in the universe, here's hoping it'll come! #mswl

Hey friends! We are closed to historical romance for now, but still looking for fun contemporary romance and cozy mystery (esp. of the series-with-an-amateur-female-sleuth variety.) Submission guidelines here! bit.ly/2n1gHwy #MSWL #writingtips
