Some tropes I'm seeking for @HallmarkPublish:
-office romance
-friends to loves
-enemies to loves
-rescue animals/pet-centered
-fake date/engagement
-second chance romance
-light magic use (e.g., an object, a spell, etc)
-and much more!

I'd looooove a diverse sweet, light holiday romance submission w/strong focus on family/friends (possible series potential?). Witty dialogue, heartwarming characters who resonate, swoon-worthy love interest. #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

A tweet brought to you by flap-copy drafting season: If it can be described with the phrase “forge an unlikely friendship,” it is for me #mswl

Old friends w/ dark secrets are my FAVORITE. Would love to see something in the same vein as Ruth Ware's THE LYING GAME. #MSWL

Laura Apperson @LCatAp · Jan 29

Creative YA mysteries with smart, innovative teens at the center have blown me away lately (ONE OF US IS LYING, TRULY DEVIOUS). I’d love to see one hit my inbox. I particularly love an immersive setting and touching friendships that make me teary-eyed. #MSWL

Really wanting to see some amazing YA contemporary stories featuring diverse characters land in my query box! Would prefer them to be grounded in family/friend relationships, but I’m open to romance in the stories too! #MSWL Query here: QueryMe.Online/Justin_Wells

Yes, please! Always looking for more friendship stories in YA and would love to see this featuring a diverse group friends. #MSWL #LGBTQIA #OwnVoices

Reminder, while we are seeking chaste romances for @HallmarkPublish, we are not seeking religious ones. We want light, warmhearted, feel-good stories about love and family and friendship. Like our movies. #MSWL

Q: What are you esp. looking for right now?
A: Contemporary romance about summer weddings, a romance with a royal prince, beach towns, autumn, or Christmas; cozy mystery/female amateur sleuth. Strong friend/family subplots a plus. #mswl

Lisa Dunn @AuthorLisaDunn · Jan 9

I'd like a down-and-dirty youth missions trip in which stereotypes fall away to reveal beautiful human beings who never thought they'd be friends. Room for romantic element, but not necessary. Make me laugh, then cry. Steer clear of cheesy. #MSWL #Christian #YA #Contemporary

Auld Lang Syne Jennette @AlyssaJennette · Jan 8

#MSWL Not just (another) YA novel about having anxiety, but about the misunderstandings that arise between friends when one DOESN'T have anxiety, and how to deal.

MARIA @msmariavicente · Jan 8

Random things I would love to see more of in submissions: witchcraft; boy bands; crows/ravens; unusual structure/format; nature; female friendship; LGBTQ+ characters; WOC characters; Wes Anderson-inspired stories. #MSWL

MARIA @msmariavicente · Jan 8

Still looking for a bunch of YA things: a story about female best friends; a macabre fairy tale retelling; a great mystery; a cute gay or lesbian love story. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Jan 5

I’d Like a MG Lassie or Sounder or Black Besuty (if B.B. was a dog)... that is, send me a realistic dog/human friendship story that will make me cry and want to hug my dogs more. (No talking dogs or animal cruelty though.) #MSWL

Alice S-H @alibelle · Jan 3

In 2018 I REALLY want some brilliant MG, tween and clean teen. Great voice, strong friendships, adventure, and a brilliant story. Let's chat if you've got something up your sleeve. #amwriting #mswl…

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 2
