Contemporary

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · 7 May 2018

I'm seeking more contemporary and historical lately––with accessible voices, character-driven plot, heart, humor, family/friendship/sibling relationships at the center. #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.wordpress.com/2018/01/01/msw…

Give me the next L.J. Smith: I want your #YA sexy vampires, your Camelot-inspired witches, your Norse gods and psychic teenagers, grounded in a semi-timeless "contemporary" setting. Better yet if they're POC and #ownvoices. #mswl

Seeking:
Adult: thrillers, psychological suspense, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, romantic comedy, & mysteries (traditional, amateur sleuth, & cozy).
YA: thrillers, psychological suspense, horror, mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, historical, & contemporary. #diversity #MSWL

hi! i am a girl who wants to read more books set in west and central asia!
(esp. if they are supernatural/urban fantasies or historical fantasies or sweet fizzy contemporary romances)

this is a #mswl thing but also very much a "please recommend me some reading" thing

Honestly if you have a YA LGBT contemporary book and you can comp it to RuPaul's Drag Race, I'm wondering why it's not already in my inbox. #MSWL

I have fantasy overload, so I'm really interested in contemporary/real world grounded speculative stories right now! #mswl

At Hallmark Publishing, we are still looking for wholesome romance for 2019 releases! Contemporary, light and fun stories, U.S. settings. An adopted dog or cat (never sick/hurt/endangered) is a plus. #MSWL #amwriting #publishing #books

I love fantasy, but my inbox is crying out for contemporary/realistic fiction. #mswl

I am tapping into 12-year-old Quressa & slowly opening my heart to MG. In the meantime, still looking for a Contemporary YA (like WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI or TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE abt two POC teens falling in love. Give me a intercultural/interracial love story! #MSWL

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 19 Apr 2018

In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL
