Adult

I'm going to bug the #WritingCommunity and #romancelandia again. I'm desperately seeking to represent an author who writes happy, funny, heartfelt books in MG, YA, or Adult. #mswl.

Also, send me a romance that feels like summer from page one, beach or lake setting, or big city summer feels like LA or NYC. YA or adult, esp from marginalized creators. All the complex feels like in BEACH READ & THE KISS QUOTIENT & REAL MEN KNIT. And as always:🏳️‍🌈 #MSWL

Randomly thinking about how diverse, inclusive adult literary fiction, set in small, intimate settings, have just rocked my reading heart the last few years.

If you're writing anything that'll make me feel the way @ZillianZi and @blgtylr's books have, you should query me. #MSWL

I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

I really want an adult ballet contemporary romance or WF. No Swan Lake retellings... I am fatigued on those. LGBTQ+ or neurodiverse welcome and preferred. #MSWL

I would love to see more Adult Rom Com submissions in my inbox! Here are a few of my favorites. #MSWL

Christina Miller @chrissymiller__ · May 21

-romance!
-historical fiction
-thriller
-cozy mystery

Have been re-watching The Vampire Diaries while home and realizing how much I would love to see queries for an adult paranormal romance w/ a vampire hero as swoon-worthy as Damon during his Miss Mystic Falls dance with Elena #MSWL

Hi writing world, I've put together my #MSWL profile! I acquire #nf #a titles related to activism, sustainability, psychology, social justice, and more.

Here's my cat not quite reading a book, for your viewing pleasure. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shay…

Beth Marshea- CLOSED TO QUERIES @busybethm · May 18

I'm opening back up in June and I'm here for Cyrano retelling, all the lesbians, and all the found family. Adult, YA, MG, just make it heartbreaking and beautiful. #mswl #comingbackinjune

Hannah VanVels @hannahvanvels · May 18

#mswl In adult -- voice and hook. Contemporary, historical, fantasy, speculative fiction, fantastical realism. Books I’ve recently called faves include The Interestings, A Gentleman in Moscow, Nothing to See Here, The Starless Sea, The Power, and the Broken Earth Trilogy 8/?

Pam Gruber @Pamlet606 · May 18

Speaking of discovering… I’m on the hunt for adult, young adult, and middle grade fiction with literary voices and commercial hooks. I love complicated female protagonists, innovative twists on classic tropes, and being swept away by fully realized worlds (real or imagined). 4/?

Tara Gilbert 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · May 17

I love books, movies, and shows with small towns where everyone knows each other. Stories with lots of emotion. (I'm watching My Girl right now and might watch Steel Magnolias next). Would love some YA, MG, or Upmarket adult stories set in small towns. #mswl

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · May 15

I started watching The Baker and the Beauty and just a quick note, I would die for an adult rom-com like this in my query box. #MSWL.

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · May 13

I am DYING for a second chance romance in YA or Adult. Exes or distanced lovers who never quite fit right when they were first together, whatever the reason! I love being able to see an old relationship with opened eyes as the new one grows. #mswl

Rena *THE SISTERS OF THE WINTER WOOD* Rossner @renarossner · May 12

I read Mists of Avalon when I was 12 and it changed my life. I’d love to see an updated version of this, but make it queer AF, and non-problematic. YA or Adult. #MSWL

Amelia Appel @AmeliaLAppel · May 11

Dying for an emotional redemption arc. YA or adult. It’s never too late. #MSWL
