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
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:
