Some ideas? How about:
- 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, but gay.
- a POC BRIDGET JONES DIARY
- a millennial SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE
- a neurodiverse YOU GOT MAIL
- a plus-size of FIRST 50 DATES (or any book because I need more plus-size characters) #mswl 3/3
Recent romances that I have loved and would like to see comps to:
- RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE
- THE BRIDE TEST
- THE RIGHT SWIPE
Basically, I want to see the next generation of romance. Millennials in romance, #ownvoices, underrepresented groups, and more. #MSWL 2/3
Soooo... there is a lack of romance in my box, and I would like to rectify that. #amquerying
If you have a romance novel you are querying, I would love to see it! #MSWL
I'm looking for romance books that almost cross over into contemporary fiction/women's fiction. 1/3
Hog and Dice @TheHogandDiceReminder that Shakespeare is Public Domain. You can just take his characters and do what you want. Gargoyles literally turned Macbeth into an immortal monster Hunter. Go ahead and put a time travelling Hamlet in your cyberpunk noir story. Who can stop you?
I'm totally here for all the Shakespeare. #mswl
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnThis is absolutely unreal. Just incredible. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 twitter.com/eliudkipchoge/…
I swear I’m not gonna work today, but want to mention this: I love track & field. A lot. GHOST by @JasonReynolds83 was a huge FINALLY! moment for me.
#MSWL MG & YA about kids on a track team. Runners, hurdlers, shot putters, high jumpers, decathletes - let’s see ‘em.
#WritingCommunity where are my Romance writers? As I go through my query box, I'm desperate to read romance. I'd love to see anything LGBTQ+ and anything with a new spin on an old favorite. #amquerying thanks! #mswl
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI would like to see more psychological thrillers in YA #mswl
Yes! Send me stories that bend reality and make me question the stability of the main character.
Or even better, a main character who is hiding information from the reader.
Tara 🏳️🌈📖🔮 @Literary_TaraY'all, are vampires coming back?
Ok, so I was a huge vampire person when I was younger. I'm kind of over vampires, but I know they are coming back, so #mswl if you have super evil vampires I'll take a look! Scary horror vampires! Or how about two evil vampires who try to kill each other and then fall in love?
Talia Benamy @taliabenamyOn this #MSWL Day, I’m aiming high: Agents, I would be absolutely over the moon to get a modern-day Phantom Tollbooth. Adventure, innocence, sophistication, and my god the wordplay. My inbox awaits the next Lands Beyond.
A THOUSAND TIMES YES! #MSWL
sage 🚀 @sageshelvesListen, I just need more queer princes in YA.
Where is my soft prince falling for his bodyguard? Where is my tough take no shit political prince that falls in love with the wrong diplomat just before his parent(s) declares war?
More queer princes in YA 2Kforever
I might also just mention that I tend to love very "voicy" books. If your writing style tends to be more character-driven and voice-driven, please submit to me! To name some Becky Albertalli, Rick Riordan, Maggie Stiefvater, TJ Klune, Casey McQuiston. #MSWL
