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

I’m always looking for #YA contemporary romcoms written by diverse authors that feature POC and LGBTQ+ characters. The lighter and fluffier, the better! #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

*forever on my #MSWL * a dual POV rom-com where a divorced mother and her mid twenties daughter are dating at the same time.

Continuing about that perfect rom-com, it can be any genre: adult, YA, graphic novel. #MSWL

It’s #MSWL day! Top of my wishlist this fall is romantic comedy that’s diverse/game-changing in some respect. That comments on our world.

Been asking for a fun YA f/f rom com for a long time now and I still want it. Sweet, salty, unique. I want my cinnamon rolls in love! #MSWL

I would really like a romantic comedy about two people with mental illnesses. Tired of seeing them die tragically. Want people to learn how to live happily. #mswl

And if you recognize that last line from Fool’s Rush In, you’ll know I’m not opposed to a clever rom com, especially if there’s some edge/angst to it #mswl

I typically go for pretty dark & gritty, but craving some good FUNNY & voice-driven rom com ala TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR in YA #mswl

I'm reading queries and actively acquiring! Happy #MSWL Day = I'm hungry for a 100,000 word romantic comedy that makes me giggle and laugh. Something like RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE by @casey_mcquiston = manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara…

Natalie Hallak @NatalieHallak · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL I'm on the hunt for wildly entertaining literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir, esp from underrepresented perspectives. Dying to see non-Eurocentric HF, refreshing romcoms a la #CrazyRichAsians, propulsive toxic female friendship stories--omg the list goes on--

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

YA: I want stories with mother/daughter relationships a la Lady Bird. Also just rewatched Clueless and I want more zany rom-coms with a clever, confident protags. Ten million points if MC is Latina. #MSWL

One Track Literary Agency @onetracklit · 12 Sep 2018
