#MSWL A #YA Comedy where a Being 👽 from another planet tries to assimilate as a human teenager.

I'm also looking for accessible historical fiction with a great hook. I'm a big rom-com fan (in teen + adult), but my bar is very high thanks to my brilliant authors, who are pubbing some of the best in the game (if I can just brag on them a bit!).
I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
Watched #ThePerfectDate yesterday and now I want a YA romcom based on a relationship where one person is paid for platonic lessons on how to not be awkward/how to talk on a date but then THEY fall in love. Like Hitch, but Will Smith and Kevin James fall in love instead #mswl
I’d also love to find some hooky YA contemporary! In addition to my dream of finding a Jewish rom-com, I’ve also loved reads like Fangirl, Geekerella, and Simon Vs. with fully realized characters and fun hooks (themes of nerd/pop/fandom culture always interests me, too!). #MSWL
Firstly, I'm really eager to find more Jewish voices, across categories & genres. I have a stronger interest in contemporary (for YA, rom-coms included!) or sci-fi/fantasy stories that features Jewish characters. I've found I'm not usually the right person for historical. #MSWL
Book twitter! I'm looking at my list for 2020 and I'd LOVEEEE a fluffy, happy, fun, winter-y (holiday?!?) romantic comedy by an author of color, featuring main characters of color! If you are writing this now... please send it to me at @avonbooks!!! #mswl #romancelandia
Really enjoyed ONE DAY IN DECEMBER. Would LOVE to find a project in that vein. Just a sweet rom-com that completely pulls you in. Especially one that features a diverse cast &/or is centered around a holiday/tradition other than Xmas. #MSWL #A #WF #R
I’m still looking for my online dating rom-com! I NEED it! Who has one? It could be friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, comedic failure, I really don’t care. It just needs the hilarious reality of online dating and how horrendous it is! But of course, with a happy ending! #MSWL
“Commercial Fiction and Rom Coms: (especially with a diverse cast!) like AYESHA AT LAST, JANE THE VIRGIN, ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, THE PROPOSAL, and Elin Hilderbrand. I need a very strong hook.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
