Historical adult f/f or f/nb queer rom coms. All of them. Pick a century, a decade, I’m here for it. #MSWL

Adult gothic horror by a Black creator. That’s it. That’s the whole #MSWL.

Also, send me a romance that feels like summer from page one, beach or lake setting, or big city summer feels like LA or NYC. YA or adult, esp from marginalized creators. All the complex feels like in BEACH READ & THE KISS QUOTIENT & REAL MEN KNIT. And as always:🏳️‍🌈 #MSWL

As summer approaches & we have no idea what it will actually look like, I’m craving a DELIGHTFUL YA or adult summer romance in my queries. Voice-driven, ocean/lake/river setting, lots of swoons. #MSWL

Here’s a #MSWL for you: A YA or ADULT fantasy set in Paris or Prague or Budapest or something uniquely akin, with an MC who most definitely knows she’s badass & powerful & won’t hesitate to tell you exactly where you can stick your hero-complex. In my dreams, she’s ragingly pan.
