Agented only #MSWL things I want across YA and adult: crossover fantasy (contemporary and not), magical realism, rom coms, rom sads, family stories, witches, vampires
Dana Murphy @manadurphysome #mswl hopes after losing a book I loved dearly (but ended up at a wonderful home!): give me your big hearted rom coms, give me your novels that feel like the best fan fiction, give me your F/F love stories!!!!, give me your happy endings with just enough angst in the middle.
Basically this entire thread, but for me. 😂 #MSWL (agented only)
#MSWL: YA & Adult Fiction - magical realism, southern Gothic, Gothic, vampires, fantasy of all kinds (especially in need of a contemporary fantasy), retellings, rom coms
Dana Murphy @manadurphyConsidering the fact that I basically swindled NYU’s v serious film department into giving me a degree in rom coms, my greatest joy is that this is a growing space in publishing. Please send them all to me. #MSWL twitter.com/bellcv/status/…
And then from there, have them sold to me. 😁 #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickFirstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween#MSWL an incredibly lush, romantic YA fantasy; novels with "evil boyfriends" (think Damon Salvatore); romantic comedies; millennial focused non-fiction, ripped from the headlines historicals
#MSWL would like to amend to "evil loves who are sometimes redemptive" :D

Kiki Nguyen @kiananguI’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.
I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl
#MSWL, adult edition: epistolary; multi-generational family saga; magical realism; contemporary fantasy; speculative; southern Gothic; millennial fiction; romantic comedy
#MSWL, YA edition: The Hating Game, but YA; romantic comedy; epistolary; poppy feeling Fantasy; super dark fantasy; contemporary fantasy (think The Raven Boys); historical mystery; magical realism
#MSWL a totally delicious YA romantic comedy that is diverse; still trying to find my perfect Paris novel (YA or adult); a historical YA mystery (think Jennifer Donnelly's These Shallow Graves); magical realism 4-ever
