Lauren Is Closed To Unsolicited Queries
One of the things I'm interested in doing A LOT MORE OF when I reopen to queries on 9/1/21 is ADULT fiction, specifically:
So if you're writing any of these, *please* query! #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.
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
I would like to read a YA RomCom set in the time of corona. You have to make it work while still having them behave safely (masks! 6ft apart!). Anybody working on this? #mswl
3. RomCom - Adult or YA. I want laugh out loud, swoony, sexy, joyful reads. I loved RWRB and The Hating Game on the Adult side, To All the Boys and Gentleman's Guide on the YA side. But really, I'm happy to read anything that's truly Rom AND Com. #mswl
I’m only open to queries for a few more days (closing 8/15!). Here is what is at the top of my wishlist:
-High concept middle grade
-kidlit graphic novels
-Adult RomCom w a great hook
-Adult female driven suspense + thrillers
A few misc #MSWL items
-MG that's spooky and lovely
-YA LatinX RomCom
-Adult thriller with a BIG hook
-Adult space horror
FEED MY INBOX
Send me your High Concept Rom Coms!!! I want:
--interesting settings that aren't my house!!!
SEND IT! #MSWL
Current #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!

alanna bennett @AlannaBennettFull-stop My Best Friend’s Wedding is one of my favorite romantic comedies because the villain is the MAIN CHARACTER and straight up a legendary anti-hero and it’s still so rare to get a rom-com where the main character LOSES.
It has the best rom-com chase scene for that reason pic.twitter.com/PEMPSJTuqb
Kyrsten Sinema @kyrstensinemaBack in DC, headed to the first day of Senate school.
I’m overcome with gratitude - thank you Arizona! It’s the privilege of my life to represent you. 🌵 pic.twitter.com/nGr5F4RAo2
