I'm actively looking for new authors (just recently offered a contract to one) in the following inspirational genres:
Amish (both suspense and contemp)
I'm also looking for contemporary romance Amish stories 55k words. If you've got a complete manuscript lying around that fits this, send it my way. I'd give it priority in my reading pile.
I'd love to see a duo of switched at birth stories with the characters finding out as adults. And the discovery leading to them each finding love matches. Either inspirational romantic suspense or contemporary romance. #mswl
I kind of want to see a contemporary romance submission that involves no children but a lot of puppies instead. Maybe a litter of adorableness brings the hero and heroine together. #MSWL
I'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
Witness Protection without the suspense/danger angle would still be a really juicy story. A great conflict & roadblock to love when you can't tell your potential love who you really are. Would love to see this for Love Inspired (contemp, insp. romance, 55k words). #MSWL
