I want to see more contemporary romance written in third person. 90% of queries I receive are first person POV. #MSWL .

Okay. How about this: if you send me a #MSWL query (per sub guidelines), & I don't request, I will give constructive feedback.
Does your main character receive an unusual inheritance? No Victorian homes with great reno potential. Think outside the box. #MSWL #romance
I love Evie and Xavier in No Tomorrow. Give me a H/H with the same dynamic. #Romance #MSWL
My main jam is contemporary romance but I am open to all #romance categories as long as the voice is unique and the hook brilliant. #MSWL
I am open to all levels of heat in adult and NA #romance . Also, *any* holiday romance, especially Halloween 🎃 👻 (costume party!). #MSWL
Settings I would love to snatch up: snow storm, tropical paradise, ghost town, fishing camp, anything nautical. #MSWL #romance
Does your character have a hidden talent? Dabble in oodles of quirky hobbies? Think Penelope from The Brothers Bloom. #romance #MSWL
I am all about the H/H fighting for ownership, whether it be property, a client, or journalists vying for the inside scoop. #romance #MSWL

@connorcoyne made me realize I haven't seen any queries w/ characters in medicine. Where are they? #MSWL
A fresh take on What Happened in Vegas Didn't Stay in Vegas. #MSWL
Heroines who constantly receive TMI in their line of work. Estheticians, cosmetologist, bartender...
Can you think of any others? #MSWL

I want romance heroes who make me blush, give unique innuendos, and come to life on the page. #MSWL

@MaryCityOwl : A heroine who isn't desired by the entire male population. The hero sees her beauty when others overlook it. #MSWL

Also want any romance set off-grid, minus entertainment industry characters. Just average peeps trying to get away from it all. #MSWL
Would love to see a heroine who was publicly humiliated on social media to viral proportions meet a hero who lives off-grid. #MSWL #Romance
Gimme a contemp. romance series #A or #NA centering around a group of friends with a bond like in Now & Then. #MSWL
