For the new year, in addition to my forever #MSWL on the ArtHouse page, in 2023, I’m looking for some specifics!!:
- picture book nonfiction
- narrative nonfiction/memoirs (think MAID)
- middle grade National Treasure with non-founding father artifacts
- adult Black romance
Susan, A Cabbage Man Graham @GrahamophonesStill looking for creators writing abolitionist works - been thinking a lot about what I'd like to represent in the adult and children's nonfiction space, and talking about inadequacies of our court and prison systems is very important to me as a human #mswl
I know MOST about this from a US perspective, but open to any nationality or court/prison system. Really just want to talk about, think about, and learn about abolition. #mswl

hayley ☼ ☽ @pagesofhayleyi need an adult wlw romcom that isn’t a period/historical piece, has no weird age gap, has no cheating, isn’t about coming out, isn’t traumatic—and it’s just sapphics in love
If you are writing this I WANT IT!!
Also, this thread is awesome! ❤️
I am SO here for all of your demonic adult horror submissions! Especially if there’s a team of demon-hunters to follow…And even more if that team of demon-hunters finds themselves in the middle of a romance…👀
That brings me to Adult Horror*—I’m open as long as it includes:
1. Supernatural/Paranormal element
2. Some lighthearted content – comedy, romance, etc.
I want to be scared, but I need something fun to keep me from putting it down!
*Sci-Fi crossovers are not for me
In Adult Historical Fiction, I'd like to see:
- A pre-WWII, mainly Pre-20th century setting
-Previously underrepresented POVs
- Romantic undertones
- Female driven narratives
My top 2 Adult Romance #MSWL wishes would be:
1. Adventure romance like The Mummy or Romancing the Stone—super steamy & fun, w/ a hint of suspense or the supernatural
2. Contemporary romance series set in a big city w/ a small town vibe—think Friends meets Virgin River
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
