Contemporary

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 8h

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.

Reading through my queries this morning and I can't stop thinking I want more YA contemporary. Send me something light and fun that will make me laugh! #mswl

I'd love to see a duo of switched at birth stories with the characters finding out as adults. And the discovery leading to them each finding love matches. Either inspirational romantic suspense or contemporary romance. #mswl

I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL

Hey #amwriting twitter! I’m on the lookout for a banshee book — reimagined contemporary, classic with a twist — you name it, I’m in. #MSWL

I kind of want to see a contemporary romance submission that involves no children but a lot of puppies instead. Maybe a litter of adorableness brings the hero and heroine together. #MSWL

Happy Friday! Eager for more adult queries - looking for contemporary, smart #womensfiction (maybe to make me cry tears of joy?!), and more psychological suspense with in-depth character dynamics within an intimate setting. #MSWL #querytip
