So I’ll be dropping into #DVpit tomorrow. If I ❤️ your pitch, check out my #MSWL (the TPA website is being updated and our bios aren’t live yet). If you think we’re a good match, send me your query via the link in my bio (NOT via email!). Here’s my MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…

Kerry Winfrey @KerryAnn

There are a lot of 90s/2000s rom-com leads left. Pining for Bill Pullman. Hoping for Hugh Grant. Hung Up on Harry Connick Jr. (subtitle: Specifically in Hope Floats, Not in Annie with an Obvious an Unsettling Bald Cap)

THIS! THIS! THIS!

I DON’T CARE IF I’M CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS!!!

If you have this exact thing, reach out NOW and I’ll read it NOW! PLEASE! I’m begging!! Just can’t be too similar to WAITING FOR TOM HANKS, but the same type of theme is what I’m looking for.

#MSWL: I want FULL LENGTH curvy girl, body-positive romance. I’m sick of either not finding them or finding they’re only novellas. I want the steam, the heat, the heart-racing…all of it! I’m still closed to queries, but if you have one and are querying, DM me for a special link.

#MSWL: While I'm closed to queries right now, I'm DYING for a ghosty-spooky story with an UNRELIABLE narrator like WE WERE LIARS meets THE SIXTH SENSE. If you have it, pitch it in ONE tweet below. ONLY If I ♥️it, send me a DM & I'll give you a special link to query me. #A #YA

#MSWL Same with Science Fiction. I do not read Science Fiction and can't wrap my head around it. Please do NOT send me Science Fiction of any kind.

#MSWL I should also mention that I almost never read high fantasy. I can't wrap my head around it, so please DO NOT SEND ME HIGH FANTASY. If it doesn't have a firm grounding in the real world, it's an automatic pass for me.

#MSWL Above and beyond everything, a novel that makes me laugh, cry, and/or laugh while crying is always a win. Regardless the genre, I'm drawn to stories that make me FEEL.

#MSWL Also in the #ROMANCE genre, I love having my heart torn apart and then pieced back together again. Think along the lines of Colleen Hoover. #ItEndsWithUs is a great example, but I also loved her early works like HOPELESS.

#MSWL #ROMANCE: This should've been at the top. I'm dying for a really great #RomCom in the vein of Helen Hoang or Christina Lauren. I also am a sucker for an enemies to lovers trope. #Regency is my original love since my teens, so I'd love something in the vein of Julia Quinn

#MSWL #A #Mystery #Thriller #Suspense: I'm a huge fan of the following authors: Mary Kubica, Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, Heather Gudenkauf, Charlaine Harris, Victoria Laurie and Juliet Blackwell (to name a few). I'd really love a #YA Mystery. Also love #ghost-y and #paranormal aspects

#MSWL #A #WomFic: In this genre, I need to you tomake me gasp, cry, or LOL in your opening pages. MAKE me want to turn the page. Make me impatient for your full submission. I love sibling relationships, family secrets, and quirky characters w/funny or serious storylines.

#MSWL Speaking of #Supernatural, I'm a huge fan of the series and think it would be fun to see something in this vein...a ghost hunters-like story in the vein of Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunter Series. (Gosh, I loved those books!) and the TV show, Supernatural.
