I want a romance that hits you in the feels. I love drama and tension (think Billy and Daisy in DAISY JONES AND THE SIX). #MSWL

A timely reminder before I log off to walk the dog that I have always wanted ace rep (please for an ace romance!!), and also healthy sex ed in books (would it be YA-4 if they discuss how to properly apply a condom and use a dental dam?). Also teens curse. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife

So now that you have some concepts, let's talk books I have loved that I am #MSWL for writing comps/voice combs/vibeness

If you are writing a YA contemporary romance, the vibe I seem to hit best is this for #MSWL *Some of my favorite books are not yet published, but if you have read @keliswrites then she is in this group too.

Now that I have had tacos, let's #MSWL! Because what is a little agency transition if you don't tell everyone what you are hoping to see in the world?

So first up: Romances. Rom-coms. FEELINGS!!! Give me love in all its variations.

I've been looking for an ace romcom forvever and I am almost starting to think I will never find it. #MSWL

So #MSWL ahead of reopening on Monday 6/1: contemporary Romances and rom-coms! I have been thinking about the manuscripts I have read lately and loved or the books I have read lately and loved, and this was what they all had in common: they were all romantic books. So gimme!!
