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?

This new Nike ad is amazing and on #MSWL Day, I’d like to add the need for more Latina MCs in my inbox. Would love a sports romance featuring a Latina athlete MC! facebook.com/story.php?stor…

also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

still on adult romance:
*romantic suspense - any kind
*serious or fun, dark theme or light
*paranormal or sci-fi element is ok too
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

still on adult romance:
*sexy romantic comedy
*looking for a fresh take on tried-and-true tropes
*looking for laugh-out-loud humor
*looking for unique situations/conflicts and character relationships
*a fun story that also has emotional depth and resonance
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

moving on to adult romance now:
*this goes for everything, but I will repeat it - more diverse characters and a range of diversity rep
*I consider any heat level, but "moderate" is my favorite, not too sweet and not too spicy, it's just right for me

still on NA:
I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f

If your romance has an enemies-to-lovers and/or a forced-proximity trope I'm in. #MSWL

If your romance hero is Wounded but Soft, I'm in #MSWL

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL

I'd love to see some suspense in my inbox. Domestic especially. Psychological. Maybe romantic, if it tilts more toward crime fic than romance. #MSWL
