#MSWL Contemporary inspirational and/or sweet romance (think Hallmark). Category Romance as well as longer length. Shorter word count to fit Love Inspired, Love Inspired Suspense. If writing with these or Hallmark lines in mind, look at their submission guidelines for reference.

I’d love a romance where the hero is this really dynamic physical person, strong, capable, a true man’s man, but juxtaposed by this very deeply feeling, beautiful gentle sensuous authentic person inside. A man man’s who leads with his heart. #MSWL

Would it be impossible to write a book about a teen who somehow exists in two different time periods at the same time? Like her lives actually overlap in some way. She thinks it’s only her but a guy in town experiences the same and they realize it & their past connection #R #MSWL

#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!)

Yo, someone send me some tropey category romance with a series in mind. I want cowboys and cowgirls and ranches and small towns. I’ll also take some medical drama. Please and thank you #MSWL

#MSWL I want a MS that includes a romance, framed around an antihero like Damon from the Vampire Diaries (doesn’t have to be straight romance & I’m not necessarily looking for a vampire). Wounded, bad to the bone (but good too, redeemable), infuriatingly compelling. Give me.

#MSWL alt-reality dark ages YA #F w/kick-butt female protag knight wielding sword & magical powers, but prefers sword. Equally bad-a male seeming antag who end up fighting the same force, one darker than any one imagines. Dark tumultuous rough raw setting & full-tension romance.

#MSWL would love a Christmas romance filled with magic realism. Give me Santa, hidden secrets, wishes coming true, North Pole, lots of snow, whatever it is, let me feel the magic!

#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 Romace please! Maybe akin to overboard but on the high seas and famous ports. Or maybe more serious. Open to a lot of interpretation! 👉Confessions of a superyacht stewardess @CNN cnn.it/2Pxz7CE👈

#MSWL I’d love a Romance featuring a female firefighter 👩‍🚒 AND I’d love a romance series featuring the young residents/new doctors and nurses of a hospital. Mix them up with each other, older doctors, nurses, police and first reponders. Give me settings: ER, surgery, etc.

Just went tubing with my family for an end-of-summer blowout in Alpine Helen & now I want a romance (with a series in mind) of adventure outfitters employees finding ♥️: raft, canoe, kayak, whitewater, fishing, horses. Set in tourist town. Montana, Maine? I don’t know! #MSWL

I'm in the market for some fun, tropey romance. #MSWL

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 4 May 2018

Hey did I mention I am looking for inspirational and mainstream category romance? Would love to see things that fit Love Inspired, Hallmark, Harlequin Heartwarming, etc. More sweet than salty. #MSWL Query me: querymanager.com/query/1032

If you want to know something about me, it’s that I love baseball. I’m a “travel” baseball mom. Little league. Big League. Braves. Give me a baseball book. MG, YA, Romance, who knows... but baseball. #MSWL

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

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 29 Jan 2018

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
