#mswl I’m also looking for Romance. The higher the heat level the better. I love historical romance, and one of my favorite tropes is enemies to lovers.

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

YA historical fiction set in the 1950s-70s, where the story offers insight/parallels to contemporary culture #MSWL

#MSWL I'm looking for something I've never seen before primarily adult or YA in fantasy, romance, historical, suspense, mystery #ownvoices

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

I absolutely loved the German film THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN and would love to see some historical fiction in Germany post war world II. It is because of that movie that I better understood my own Opa. #MSWL

Specifically, I’d love a contemporary #YA set in Prague (modern day or historical). Bonus points if it includes a love story as beautiful as the astronomical clock tower. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 12 Sep 2018

Also still wanting my bayou witches like Misty in AHS. Looking for realistic and well researched Voodoo/Hoodoo. Witches/Conjurers/Weilders in general, really #MSWL This can be historical, fantasy, urban fantasy, contemporary, just GIMME

Devin Ross @Devyross · 12 Sep 2018

In #YA and #Adult I'd love to see magical realism (a recent fave is All The Birds in the Sky) as well as historical fantasy that throws me into an unexpected time. I have a weakness for anything Victorian or Jane Austen. Lastly: Assassins. Anything with assassins #MSWL
