#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

I’m seeking #MG and #YA that explores the mythology and folklore of cultures from around the world by #ownvoices writers. Would love to see this in a graphic novel! #MSWL

So before it gets too late, let's do some #MSWL tweets!

Firstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL

I'd love to see books featuring strong law enforcement heroes in remote areas who must protect heroines in jeopardy for Harlequin Intrigue. Heart-stopping suspense, compelling backstories, believable plotlines. #ownvoices authors welcome and encouraged #MSWL

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · Sep 12

Dying for more magical realism women's fiction, or #ownvoice women's fiction contemporaries #mswl

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · Sep 12

Hot on my list for #mswl are #ownvoice contemporaries featuring diverse characters.

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · Sep 12

If you write inspirational romantic suspense that is fast paced, exciting and full of danger, I'd love to see it for Love Inspired Suspense. #ownvoices authors welcome and encouraged. Check out guidelines here: harlequin.submittable.com/submit/29572/l…

I want a sparkly fantasy (think Mercedes Lackey or Robin McKinley) set in a non-European secondary fantasy world (with non-white protagonists, please!), and I would love it to be #ownvoices. #mswl
