where is my queer romcom starring Jason Momoa as a hot, smart mechanic wooing a snarky professor with a bad car played by Oscar Isaac

If someone could please submit this book to me, I'd really appreciate it, thanks! #MSWL https://t.co/fAxckAkiiI

I want to edit a m/m historical romance so bad, y'all. It's been too long. #mswl

If you have something up my alley or just like the cut of my jib, you can submit to me/@CarinaPress here: https://t.co/xjKxUZEqfy #MSWL

In terms of romantic pairings, I'm happy to read both straight & queer protagonists. Also love books with racial/religious diversity. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

Retail workplace romance (*cough*BOOKSTORE*cough*) is a lot of fun and something I don't see often. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

My favorite tropes are marriage of convenience, underappreciated Cinderella-types, and enemies to lovers. So all of that, please. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

I desperately want more m/m historical romance. I've had quite the dry spell there. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

Pack books are wonderful, but here I mean something moodier and a little more psychologically torment-y. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

I'd love some paranormal where a shifter hero/heroine has to deal with initial transformation/figuring shit out on their own. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Feb 8

Okay, #MSWL . I edit romance & I loooove virgin heroes. Any genre, even if I don't specify that I'm acquiring it. This is kind of My Thing.

Still looking for my hot male librarian romance #mswl

Seconded. Send this to @ThaoLe8 so she can send it to me! #MSWL https://t.co/r4HYT31eim

I'm open to other great romance mss too, OF COURSE—go here to find out how to submit to me @CarinaPress : https://t.co/xjKxUZEqfy #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

Spies and sleuths, please! I generally need more capers in my life. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

I'll always dig smalltown romance, but right now I REALLY want the opposite—escaping claustrophobic home town for the big city. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

Basically, a lot of my pairing preferences boil down to "I'm so annoyed that I'm so fucking in love with you." #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

Another type of pairing I adore: cheerful, boyish galumphs matched with more serious/slightly uptight or neurotic partners. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

Definitely always looking for diverse romance, in all genres. POCs for sure, and also religious diversity. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

I miss editing contemporary Westerns. I'm particularly interested in rodeo themes, but actual working cowboys/cowgirls = yay too. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 13 2016

Contemporary m/m based on this photo, pls. (Yes, it's Taylor Kitsch, but to clarify, I'm not looking for RPF.) #MSWL https://t.co/vqpepG0z7E

I weirdly love a hero who's sort of a difficult person/grumpy jerk, but with a soft spot for his romantic partner. So give me that. #MSWL
