Oh. Oh my.

One of my authors sent me an adult rom-com with splashes of ✨FANTASY and MAGIC✨.

Querying writers, please send me stuff like this. I want these surprising genre-blends so bad. #MSWL.

Throwing this out there, I would LOVE to find some diverse, inclusive rom-coms in my agent life.

Especially anything that's genre-blending, like The Plus One by Sarah Archer (robot engineer builds a wedding date).

Some of my current clients are writing them. Gimme more. #MSWL

I started watching The Baker and the Beauty and just a quick note, I would die for an adult rom-com like this in my query box. #MSWL.

I almost tweeted "YA rom-con" instead of "YA rom-com" and I officially want to read a YA contemporary novel about two teens planning a heist who OOPS also fall in love. #MSWL

Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL

Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.

It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.

Don't forget, even when everything feels like it's on fire, the world still needs your playful rom-com novels about kissing. <3 #MSWL

Looking for quiet YA contemporary / rom-coms.

Do you write Nora Ephron style YA like @LaurenEMorrill? Let's laugh and cry together. #MSWL
