Again, still looking for my Ruby from Cold Mountain type of gun-toting, foul mouthed, take no ish character in lands that didnโ€™t have laws. Historical? #MSWL

Fantasy that takes place in a land of ice and shadows...maybe even complete darkness...is this a thing? Can I has it? #MSWL

Platonic friendship stories, a la The Half of It. Even if one side kind of likes the other, the friendship here is what really drove this story home, and the sacrifices and compromises they made in order to keep it and do right by each other. MORE please. โค๏ธ #MSWL

Ghost stories. Donโ€™t know why. Donโ€™t know if they will even sell. But I want all the ghost stories that will literally scare me out of bed at night. Thanks in advance for the lack of sleep. If you can honestly scare me, youโ€™re hired. ๐Ÿ‘ป #MSWL

Spoke to an editor this morning and reminded myself how much I want a historical in MG, YA, or Adult about a gun-toting, foul mouthed, self-sufficient woman like Ruby from Cold Mountain. Any country or continent or sexuality or skin color. Iโ€™m tired of petticoats. #MSWL

I just spent the last few hours watching The Half Of It, and then spent a lot of time and energy realizing the absolute brilliance of the emotional depth and reality of this movie. If anyone has this as a comp title...I really, really would love it right now. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/h652JbvTnY

And listen, hereโ€™s the thing: Iโ€™m good with romance being messy and not always ending well, but the only contemporary stories I find that arenโ€™t HEA YA romance are usually about suicide. Where are the middle ground manuscripts which this movie SO EXCELLENTLY defined?! #MSWL

So, with all of that said, I'm really looking for some well written Adult Contemporary Romance. I'm super into Tinder date fails rn, enemies to lovers tropes, BFFs to Lovers tropes, and boss a$$ women who don't sacrifice their work for any man. #MSWL Slow Burns favored! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will still be open to YA stories, but will be much more selective about them (or I will TRY to be! I keep picking them up, gosh darn it! I've been trying!) However, I currently have 6 mostly YA authors on my roster, and I need more adult and MG authors! #MSWL

Good Morning! I am OPEN to queries for 2020, which means it's time to do a #MSWL thread! pic.twitter.com/9LH52Dv3Fn
