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!!
🧼 Lauren Spieller 🖐 @laurenspiellerSend me your High Concept Rom Coms!!! I want:
--interesting settings that aren't my house!!!
SEND IT! #MSWL
No send theses to me!!!! #MSWL I will duke it out with Lauren.
Added bonus for quippy voices.
🧼 Lauren Spieller 🖐 @laurenspiellerCurrent #MSWL wishlist:
❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony
✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult
If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!
Me but keep it kidlit. #MSWL.
5. I want a fluffy rom-com. I want to feel the feels! Think MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. Or the girly squeels of delight when Anne cracks the slate over Gilbert's head. I want to fall in love. #StanGilberBlythe #JonanthanCrombie4Eva #MSWL
So I mentioned wanting a fluffly YA rom-com. It is like the #1 thing I want right now. I am craving it like I crave pickles or guac. Think HOT DOG GIRL, or THE PRINCESS DIAIRIES, or ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. Just fun, squee emotions, and escapism. #MSWL
In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG
Tessa Woodward @TessaofAvonleaJust had most brilliant book idea: ANNE OF MANHATTAN: modern retelling of Anne of the Island - A is a teacher in the big city, G is a first year in a big hospital... maybe they’re in the same pub trivia league? let the rom com fun begin. Who can write it for me??
