Contemporary college stories
Interconnected standalone series
Heartbreaking stories about young women finding their identities
Deals gone wrong
Marriage of convenience
Campy genre fiction
Also, 18/34 romance books I’ve read this year have been self-published. So if you’re an indie or self-pubbed author looking to break into traditional publishing with a new project, I’d love to hear from you!
Songs I wish I could just bottle up their essence in romance scenes:
“Shivers” Ed Sheeran
“You Broke Me First” Tate McRae
“Still Falling For You” Ellie Golding
“Forever” Mumford and Sons
“Until I Found You” Stephen Sanchez
“Take Me to Church” Milck
💕Hi romance writers, since I’m now open to queries for contemp romance, I thought I’d do a separate #mswl for it bc I’d really love to add some amazing college, rivals to lovers, young socialite, big hook books to my list.
Below is my romance vibe w/ examples, songs, and quotes
Romantic, steamy adult fantasy romances. Deals of convenience, betrayal, political intrigue, dueling families, rivals to lovers to enemies, immortals w/longstanding wars and deep histories. Ballroom dances that end with a dagger to the throat. Rich world building & magic systems
For the first time, I’m opening up to romance in the adult space, particularly contemporary stories that have a lot of layers, have a great backdrop, and an ensemble cast. I’ll be pretty picky here, but here are a few of my faves from the last year 🤍
✨🤍📖I’m open to queries✨🤍📖
I am so so stoked to open my QM again and this time I have new things on my #mswl! I’m especially in the mood for:
MG & YA heists, competitions, mysteries, and thrillers
Adult fantasy romance
Adult contemporary romance
I am open to queries. I repeat: I am open to queries.
What do I want? Who knows. I mean, I do know. Maybe some fae, some smutty fantasy romance, maybe some gay witches, I don’t know let’s also throw in a himbo or two.
I am open to queries.
That is all.
