okay i can't stop thinking about it, which means i have to #mswl it:
agents, if you can send me an adventure romance that evokes the fun, the fear, and love story that's in THE MUMMY (1999), you may just find yourself a book deal
sarah maclean @sarahmaclean@normajeanesays Norma. Only one of us is an editor. FIND ME SOME ALPHAS.
So, this dovetails pretty nicely into my other Book Twitter convo today.
Agents, please help me. For Romancelandia, and Sarah 💕 #MSWL
Norma 🇵🇷🇨🇺 @normajeanesaysfirst author/agent duo to submit a romance that i like with this aesthetic wins a book deal #mswl twitter.com/gelrdrgz/statu…
I’ve been wanting this aesthetic for a Latinx romance, have you been listening? #mswl
I Am Lauren Jernigan 🌜 @LEJerni13You know how there’s definitely a production assistant running the AI system via Remote Desktop for #TheCircleNetflix contestants? I want a romance story about one falling in love with their contestant and helping them not say stupid things to other players.
I JUST SAID I wasn't going to do these anymore, but... #MSWL
Happy #MSWL day! If I don’t get a romance/women’s fiction submission about a 30-year-old Latinx woman who’s throwing her quinceañera part 2 (aka the one she never had) and finally gets the boy who got away, I will flip. Think Never Been Kissed meets The Wedding Singer con azucar.
Brooklyn White @brooklynrwhiteI wrote about the co-optation of Hot Girl Summer. "If you don’t support Black women, give them access, and make them feel seen in the products you’re peddling, then you shouldn’t adopt their intraracial phrases to line your pockets." bitchmedia.org/article/brands…
Which is why in my previous call for women's fiction or romance manuscripts that are inspired by Hot Girl Summer, I specifically asked to see work by Black women writers.👇🏽 #MSWL
Esmeralda Bermudez 🦅 @LATBermudezMy little sister recently announced that when she turns 30 she’ll be having a Treintañera with a gown and a vals to make up for not having a party at 15. Is this a thing?
I’d love to see this novel in my inbox. #MSWL
Madeleine Colavita @m_colavitaHigh on my #MSWL this year is Jane the Virgin in romance novel form. I don't know exactly what it would look like, but that's what I want.
Madeleine, have you had any success yet? Where is the Jane the Virgin inspired romance novel we deserve and need? #MSWL
Norma @normajeanesaysIf I ever got a romance/women's fiction like Jane the Virgin/Ugly Betty, I'd die with happiness. #R #CR #WF #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YKaTAMA6nh
It's been over 2 years for this one, and I have a field of crickets in my inbox too. #MSWL
Norma @normajeanesaysHistorical romance with diverse heroes/heroines. I want to know about the Regency peeps of African/Indian/Jewish (&more!) descent. #MSWL
It's been 2 years and NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING has made it to my inbox! #MSWL
Evette Dionne 🤷🏾♀️ @freeblackgirlLook at the women dancing with Beyoncé. Size inclusion is really that simple. twitter.com/shharine/statu…
Peep the video in this quote tweet. Would love to see a contemporary romance inspired by the backup dancers #MSWL
#1 speak now & sabrina carpenter trash @getawaybrinawait wait wait what? Gurl I thought you were virgin until last season. @HereIsGina @justinbaldoni @CWJaneTheVirgin pic.twitter.com/Hp1RhfW0ne
...no but seriously #MSWL
cristina arreola @C_Arreola1) stop restricting marginalized characters to stories about pain & trauma
2) publishing, give me some latinx rom-coms starring girls who love ghosts & bad puns!!!!
hey, agents and writers, see point 2. #MSWL
KJ Charles @kj_charlesSpanish histrom. Hapsburg court histrom. Any histrom with completely bonkers monarchy and court intrigue and shenanigans behind gilt doors.
Great thread about places and periods historical romance needs to explore. This is right here is a #MSWL:
Robin Bradford🍸 🎉🎄🤶🏾🎅🏾 @TuphlosI DO think we're going to be seeing less sex in romance. The contemporary, closed bedroom door that isn't religious in nature. #romancelandia
I'm into this for sure. #MSWL
