Also, this is the first time I've articulated this, but one of my favorite books—and movies—is Call Me By Your Name. (Rereading the book last year was one of my greatest joys of 2018.) Boy, what I would give to find a coming-of-age and romance with that same pull. ❤️❤️❤️ #MSWL
Tara Tsai @TaraTsaiWritesMy mother-in-law was telling stories of how she had to accompany her sister on match-making dates in Hong Kong when she was a kid. Dim sum with the couple and all the females in the family. Is there a historical romance like this, especially own voices? I would love to read this!
Omg please someone write this for me #mswl
Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF with rich romantic layering. Give me complexity and stakes laced between both the romance and the fantasy conflict. Show me how magic and love work in tandem. Show me passion across galaxies. Light me on fire.
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Queer contemporary romance! Show me all kinds of relationships, all genders. Make me BURN with desire to see the relationship ignite!
(I am queer myself and want to read all the nuance and complexities of queer romance explored without hesitation)
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - PILES OF Adult fantasy. If you give me familiar creatures (elves, dwarves) make them & their mythology EXPLOSIVELY different from traditional versions. No romance required, but romance (or just heat!) is welcome, too.
Yesterday I read BURN FOR ME by @ilona_andrews and I think I have found a new favorite romance series. It is also exactly what I mean when I say I want paranormal or contemporary fantasy that feels new and different. I want more like this! #mswl
I'll just add this to my #MSWL since it sounds like my kind of #mystery #thriller #suspense, or maybe even quirky #romance or #wf. --> Human heart prompts Southwest flight to return to Seattle apnews.com/3e2217bb190c49…

@UKRomChat @ukromchatQ5. For Kate: Following on from the previous question: what would you like to see more of in romance, or possibly less of? #ukromchat @katenashagent @linalanglee pic.twitter.com/bjQY5tWKDS
I'm looking for 1. Sweeping epics in war, like Gone With The Wind. 2) Romance reflecting today's UK diverse communities, such as inner cities or very rural. 3) a real Victorian rags-to-riches tear-jerker. 4) In romcom, new settings like @KarenAldous_ Alps #MSWL #UKRomChat
Jaqueline Snowe @JaquelineSnowe@rwchat I'm a sucker for sports romances, love to read and write them. But I'd love to see the roles flipped and have the heroine be the athlete. #RWchat
If you’re the person writing this, send it to me Jan 2019. #MSWL
Stacey Donovan @Donovanesque- clear motivation for the things the characters do
- a clear conflict for the romantic relationship...on both sides.
- a specific explanation of how they overcome those obstacles...and how it all ends!
Hey there! I personally find romance synopses and proposals VERY difficult to write, and I figure I can't be the only one, so here are some elements of ones that tend to work for us at @HallmarkPublish, for what it's worth! #amwriting #amquerying #MSWL (thread)
