#AntiMSWL & #MSWL I prefer contemporary over historical romance unless the historical has some REALLY nifty hook, though I dig fantasy in a feudal setting. I don’t rep picture books and rarely chapter books, but I’m all about middle grade (with upper MG my sweet spot!)

I’m seeing lots of calls for contemporary fantasy, so send this my way, please! #MSWL

Ok this ones courtesy of my best friend, Hanna & an ancestry DNA talk on Thanksgiving. #MSWL a contemporary YA that explores the ramifications of a teen finding out through a genealogy DNA test (think school project) that her dad isn’t her real dad & the dad doesn’t know either.

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

#MSWL I want an MS set a DEF CON—the huge hacker convention held in Las Vegas. Crazy stuff must go down. High-energy. Thriller-esque. Contemporary or near-future (give me crazy attire, cool world building), YA or Adult. Save the world. Solve a puzzle. But HIGH stakes!!!

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

#MSWL Contemporary single-title romance with a deaf hero and a hearing heroine.

Make me swoon and keep it sweet! I’m looking for wholesome, inspirational category romance. Can be contemporary, historical or make-my-heart-race suspense, as well as writers who understand the expectations of the line, and can provide great comp titles. #R #MSWL

#MSWL Would love a contemporary romance with a woman in a traditionally male role - race car driver or a pilot, etc. +equally alpha male.
