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.

Please send me all your YA rom-coms. I love competitions, enemies-to-lovers, and quirky friendships. I’d also love to see more of these stories set outside of the US! #mswl

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✨.

Really hungry for some good contemporary romances right now. Romcom, serious, tortured, preferably with a slow burn romance. ♥️
