I'd love to see some more #adult projects in my inbox. #speculative, #contemporary, #historical, #romcom--I'm open to almost ANYTHING, but looking for a great hook & great voice. Something that I'll have hard time putting down #mswl #a (still also looking for #MG & #YA)
Just to expand on my #MSWL: for commercial fiction, I love contemporary romance & rom coms (think Sally Thorne's THE HATING GAME, Josie Silver's ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, and Nora Roberts' work) along with historical romance w/ richly drawn characters a la Lisa Kleypas's work.
On my eternal #mswl is a romcom (YA or Adult) where one of the MCs is a Type I diabetic.
This request brought to you by the fact that my new insurance requires prior authorization on the insulin that I’ve been using for over 20 years. So now I get to pay more to stay alive.
In young adult:
-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.
- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life
-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7
-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters
- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7
Oh. Oh my.
One of my authors sent me an adult rom-com with splashes of ✨FANTASY and MAGIC✨.
Querying writers, please send me stuff like this. I want these surprising genre-blends so bad. #MSWL.

I'm really interested in RomComs right now. I have no rom-com authors on my lineup, and I've been eagerly looking for them. Other than than that, you can check out my #mswl here...taragilbert.com/mswl/

Thao Le @AgentThaoI would love to get some more adult romcoms that have the high concept hooks and diversity that's been happening in YA romcoms! My adult list is still very bare and I'd love to flesh it out more with some new writers and projects. #mswl
I still want more adult projects! I'm building my romantic tinged adult speculative fiction and romcom list. =) Am also open to select historical, but I'm hoping from something along the veins of Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo #mswl
