It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl

Would love a voice-driven contemporary #YA rom com (frenemies to lovers, anyone?) #MSWL

#MSWL. Always looking for great adult fiction, e.g. Southern Gothic, medical romance, romantic comedies, Up Lit, domestic thrillers, historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries and cozy mysteries. You can email me at atuttle@dystel.com.

As ever, I want novels with a sense of humor whether that means a light romcom or a scathing satire: truly, anything from When Dimple Met Rishi to My Sister, The Serial Killer. #MSWL

Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini @TracyMarchini · Jan 1

I'd still love a super witty and clever beach read/romcom in YA. #mswl

14) Romcoms about athletes competing at the Olympic level. I want the next Cutting Edge! #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

Mary Altman @marykaltman · 17 Dec 2018

Looking for smart, funny & unabashedly geeky queer romcoms. Falling in love mid-RP? Theme park princesses finding each other? A heel and a face pretending to be rivals on the mat and lovers behind closed doors? Cosplayed Cap and Bucky searching for each other post-con? #MSWL

Q5. 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

Replying to @ukromchat

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

Melanie Fried @Melanie_Fried · 8 Dec 2018

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4 Dec 2018

Another #MSWL: HOT DOG GIRL meets TWEET CUTE. I just need a rom com in YA do badly.

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · 28 Nov 2018

I'm devouring cheesy yet wonderful Hallmark and Netflix holiday movies. Surely a YA rom com in a holiday setting (Christmas market? Christmas tree farm? Santa photo studio?) would be as delightful? #MSWL

V for Vendetta @VeroniKaboom · 24 Nov 2018

Another trope I adore from indie rom-coms, weird sci-fi, and obscure non-US TV dramas is the uptight, emotionally/physically repressed person who falls for and pines over the free spirit, without judging, while FS teases mercilessly. Ex: Ins. Jack Robinson & Phryne Fisher. #MSWL

The Beccadook 👻 @RebeccaPodos · 21 Nov 2018

#MSWL a YA romcom set on Christmas Eve, except the mc’s are Jews so the holiday is really only incidentally mentioned, and they probably confess their mutual affection in a McDonald’s parking lot
