Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinOooh, #MSWL day! I don’t have a ton of time to pop in today, but check out past tweets or my (up-to-date!) post on the site, linked in my profile. But while I’m here...
Bring me a YA romance that reads like your favorite fanfic. High-concept premise (fake relationship? Austen retelling? Whatever!), slow burn, Big OTP Energy. #mswl
I'm officially open for queries. #MSWL Christian romance projects only (contemporary, historical, or romantic suspense). Want stellar writing, strong characters, unique plots.
Paste query & 1st 10 pages into body of email to candee.fick (at) anaiahpress (dot) com. @anaiahpress
In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
I wanna touch on contemporary romance real quick. I love cute awkwardness. I want gut-wrenching love (think Just One Day by @gayleforman). I need LGBTQ+ that isn't just "coming out" or "issue-driven". If you give me Andy Anderson, I'll love you forever #MSWL
Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.
#MSWL When I open up my queries again, I want the fluffiest most uwu romance / contemporary (adult or children's) fiction with PoC and/or queer protagonists (Not secondary characters fitting the bill and no one is allowed to die!)
Norma @normajeanesaysIt's been 2 years and NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING has made it to my inbox! #MSWL twitter.com/normajeanesays…

Moving on to romance---please please PLEASE send me your swoony stories. I'm not getting nearly enough of them in my inbox. In romance, I'm open to historical, contemporary, and paranormal. #MSWL
I'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
Hannah Bennett @helizbennettIt's Manuscript Wish List day! Here are a few #MSWL ideas for Cleis Press. More on our list and submissions guidelines here: cleispress.com/submission-gui… #amwriting #writerslife #writerscommunity
#MSWL: unique, beautifully written erotica and erotic romance, especially featuring POC, LGBTQ+ characters, and modern love stories.
Chiming in to share my #MSWL: Adult Fiction (sry no YA etc.) #OwnVoices #RomComs #LGBT+ #SciFi #Fantasy #WomensFic #Romance
I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍
I'm looking for juicy inspirational romantic suspense books that will fit Love Inspired Suspense. Clean reads, lots of danger and suspense, satisfying romance, not preachy. Think characters on the run from danger who fall in love while fighting to stay alive.
