Reminder, while we are seeking chaste romances for @HallmarkPublish, we are not seeking religious ones. We want light, warmhearted, feel-good stories about love and family and friendship. Like our movies. #MSWL

8--tropes like mistaken identity, royalty, forced proximity, enemies to loves, second chance romance, fake engagement, etc. Light conflict w/ engaging characters and fun, fresh plot twists.
9--minor magic is okay, but mostly about objects/holidays.

Thinking about specific submissions I'd love to see for @HallmarkPublish. Will tag with #MSWL!

1--rescue animals (or pet-themed). We love animals! Pls don't make them terrible, or in danger.
2--romantic comedies. I want to literally LOL!
