I'm *always* open to pitches, no MS needed, from BIPOC authors who have published romance novels (inc. self-published). To learn about pitching a Hallmark romance novel (not script), Christmas or no, slide into my DMs 🙂 Pass it on!

Always looking for diverse and #ownvoices stories; especially interested in Christmas/holiday right now. Thanks!

4. A romance where the small-town protagonist decides to go to the big city in the end...maybe gets the courage to follow their dreams again after a setback. (We did this in one movie; did you catch that? 🙂 )

3. Not romance per se: three intertwined love stories. They're all brought together by some Christmas thing. 😄 Maybe one of the couples is in their 60s/70s/80s?

2. Still looking for sweet LGBTQ+ romance in general, Christmas or not; not a coming-out story. Looking for clear conflict to the romance on both sides; being gay is not the conflict. Maybe rivals to romance, second chance, grumpy/sunshine? #MSWL #Hallmark

1. Holiday romance, one celebrates Hanukkah, one celebrates Christmas, different faith traditions are not the romantic conflict (in-depth familiarity with Hanukkah and Jewish faith and culture required) #MSWL

I'd love to get these for @HallmarkPublishing. if you've published full-length romance, we can start with a 3-4 pp. synopsis. Novels only, not scripts; no previously published work. DM for email.

I've said this before, but I'm looking for a proposal for a sweet Hallmark story about 2 guys falling in love, Christmas or not. Have your agent DM me, or if you've published low-heat romance (esp. M/M), DM me yourself. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #publishing #TuesdayThoughts

Hey agents and authors with agents! I'd like to get a G-rated romance proposal about 2 guys falling in love for Hallmark, Christmas or not-Christmas. Maybe big-city guy goes back to hometown & meets up again with his old crush?
