contemporary romance:
**small town settings
**stories with dogs
**I will consider any heat level from sweet to steamy
**characters with interesting or atypical careers
**non-US settings - personally love Italy but ANYTHING is fine
**winter/holiday romance
**queer romance

still on YA - contemporary YA--again, I'll look at ANYTHING here, but more specifically...
**rom-com - even better if it's gay
**something serious at its heart but with a witty, accessible voice like *cough*SickKidsinLovebyHannahMoskowitz*cough*
#MSWL

still on NA:
more queer romance please and thanks
more trans and genderqueer characters
in contemp, PNR, UF, RS, SF, everything
#MSWL

still on NA:
I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f

still on YA:
*mystery/thrillers w/ atypical narrative structure and/or mixed media formats
*paranormal that feels fresh
*adventure-driven stories
*anything with a high-stakes plot
*fairytale retellings that feel fresh
*smart contemporary that makes me laugh and cry

Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lydi…
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 16 Feb 2018

here is my current #mswl:
YA romance - all genres
single title romance - all genres (see yesterday's tweets for what "single title" means)
category/series romance - contemp or historical
womens fiction with romance
NA romance - contemp or sci-fi
LGBTQ romance in any of the above

a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 17 Jun 2017

also still seeking a romance with characters who are ballet dancers in YA or NA, doesn't have to be contemporary but contemp is ok #mswl

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 8 Feb 2017

Happy #MSWL Day! I will be back later today to tweet specifics, but in general--YA sci-fi, YA fantasy, YA contemp, all must have romance. 📚💕

Replying to @lydia_sharp

And since the topic (inadvertently) came up... I'd really like to see a "fake relationship" romance in contemp YA, please and thanks! #MSWL

In contemp romance (adult) or womens fiction I'd love to see a veterinarian character that specializes in horses #mswl

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · 30 Jun 2016

contemp YA mystery/thriller/suspense with a unique hook, and of course, romance. Bonus points for giving me the same thing in SF/F. #mswl
