Hi! Good morning! This is your semi-annual reminder that while I'm looking for diversity and own voices across the board, I am particularly interested in seeing submissions in the mystery and historical romance genres. Please send! #mswl

There's a lot of overlap here with my own historical romance #mswl. I have been begging for what feels like forever for a Regency centered on South Asian protags. And a 1950s historical romance? *swoons*

Always, always, always looking for diverse historical romance. For example, I think a romance set at Idlewild in the 1930s would be FANTASTIC. #MSWL

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.

In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.

In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.

If pumpkin spice lattes are back, autumn must be right around the corner, which means I'm jumping on the spooky reads bandwagon. Send me your upmarket, creepy stories: witches, ghosts, other things that go bump in the night. How about a gothic romance, you say? Yes! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 21 Aug 2018

#MSWL call for more historical romance, especially diverse stories from #ownvoices authors! I adore Regencies and Scotsmen, but I'd also love to see some new time periods, new settings, and new voices. Bonus points if your characters make me laugh.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 30 Jul 2018

Hey there! Consider this your periodic reminder that I am always open to diverse historical romance projects, and am especially interested in #ownvoices. Send 'em, send 'em! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 25 Jul 2018

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 4 Jun 2018
