Some favorite Adult Romance tropes would include:
- second chance romance
- only! one! bed!
- beauty and the beast re-telling (any fairytale/folklore/myth really)
*** bonus points for including a small, furry partner in crime 🐶🐱🐰
All! The! Romance!
I’m open to almost all* Adult Romance, w/ the following sub-genres as some personal favs: Historical, Suspense, & Paranormal. That being said, I'd love to read anything and everything in between!
*Sci-Fi & Inspirational are not a fit

Some general #MSWL – I am currently only looking for projects in the following Adult Fiction genres:
- Historical Fiction
I’d really love to see more cozy and warm contemporary fantasy projects, full of whimsy and fun, in my query inbox. It can be adult, YA, or crossover.
I’m a bit burned out on the dark and heavy stuff right now. Basically, looking for a hug in book form. #mswl

On my #MSWL.

ADULT FICTION: Literary fiction, Poetry (very selective, underrepresented voices)
Surprise! I’m opening to queries November 1st-18th! While I love picture books, I have a lot of them on sub so I’m hoping to find:
-YA fantasy, paranormal, or horror (no gore!)
-Adult fantasy or thrillers
"I want unique, genre-blending romance novels. I wish I had worked on THE PLUS ONE by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom com in space, or with magic."
Really looking for some great #PsychologicalThriller or #horror stories right now! Either adult or ya! Also, I’m on the lookout for some great romcoms! So in other words, I want you to spook me, but then I’ll laugh about it. 😉 #mswl
The historical voice is a fine line to walk between what readers today expect historical to sound like, as well as what they actually can and will read fluently. So historical in all age ranges (MG, YA, and Adult) really need an outstanding voice that straddles the line! #mswl
For adult fantasy I’d love something a-la BLACK SUN but without magic. Decolonial epic fantasy without magic with a dark atmospheric edge — the more psychological and twisted the better. Would love to see some fresh voices and mythology retellings on second worlds
