Adult Romance w a hint of magic or a genre element. Think THE DEAD ROMANTICS, THE EX HEX, or ONE LAST STOP. #mswl
If you’ve written a romance with a TOUCH of magic…or horror…or a thriller element…I want to read it. Gimme your genre benders! #mswl
My full #mswl can be found on the agency website but here’s what I’m especially looking for in 2023:
—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist
—Suspense/Thrillers (we need more queer and POC rep in this category!)
—MG Fantasy! All kinds!
I’d love to find a genre-bending romance in 2023. Think Ash Poston or Casey McQuiston. #MSWL

I think this is the year I get REALLY into romance #mswl
#mswl! I see a lot of romances about a normal person and a famous person falling for each other, but they rarely nail the weirdness and the humor of the situation the way this does. I really, REALLY want the “com” part.
Bria Ragin @BriARagAgents, under the BIPOC romance umbrella, I would love to see different pairings of interracial/interethnic love, same race relationships, body positivity, characters of every sexuality and gender, & teens with disabilities and disorders. Love between any two humans is beautiful.
I want to read these books! #MSWL
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiI still have not found my FLUFFY, YEARNING AND TENSION-FILLED, LIGHTHEARTED YA contemporary romance 🥺🥺🥺.
PLEASE LET THIS BE THE YEAR😭😭#mswl pic.twitter.com/n34NlrAp1W
Who will write this for us?! #mswl
Erin Siu @erinssiuCurrently craving: tragic romance, spooky apparitions, repressed memories, mysteries going back centuries, PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR, "something's wrong with house/person/thing", The Haunting of Bly Manor #MSWL
Ditto tho #mswl
Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansReally in the mood for something gothic as hell, full of rot and ruin, a slow-burn romance, twists and turns, and BIPOC protagonists. #MSWL
Uhhhhh yes please #mswl
Eri @eriexplosionI want to see the cop romance genre replaced entirely by postal worker romances, just saying. ROMANTICIZE! THE POSTAL WORKERS!
Oh man I totally want a You’ve Got Mail but actually about letters between postal workers. #mswl
Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintempleGod I just want an adult #horror novel with an epic queer romance at the center please just give this to me #MSWL
Who is going to do this for me #mswl
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinI turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels
Hi I’m calling to report a crime and that crime is @stephlystein stealing my #mswl
Katherine Harrison @KidlitKatCan someone please write a YA gothic horror novel with a simmering f/f romance about the green ribbon girl? I want it soooooo bad #MSWL twitter.com/kendrawcandraw…
YES. PLEASE. #mswl
I really want more high concept, fun, romantic contemporary YA. #mswl
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
Tara Tsai @TaraTsaiWritesMy mother-in-law was telling stories of how she had to accompany her sister on match-making dates in Hong Kong when she was a kid. Dim sum with the couple and all the females in the family. Is there a historical romance like this, especially own voices? I would love to read this!
Omg please someone write this for me #mswl
This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
