#MSWL update! Looking for YA or A: clean Victorian romances; cozy mysteries with quirky sleuths; esp. if you have either with unreliable narrator. Any "artsy" connections would be a plus! Send QL+first 15 pages to firstname.lastname@example.org, with my name in the subj.
Where are all the cozy mystery authors hiding? Can you give me a clue? 😉 I'm in need of a unique cozy with a great voice. Have a MS like that? Woohoo! Paste your query and first five pages in the body of an email and send to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL
Two weeks until our open submission period at @HallmarkPublish! I'm excited. You can submit between Feb. 1 - Feb. 28. We're looking for full-length romance and cozy mystery. Guidelines here: bit.ly/2wajgQM #MSWL
#MSWL. Always looking for great adult fiction, e.g. Southern Gothic, medical romance, romantic comedies, Up Lit, domestic thrillers, historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries and cozy mysteries. You can email me at email@example.com.
Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Tips for Hallmark cozy mysteries:
- the police can be misdirected, but not inept
- an amateur sleuth should have good reasons why s/he has a particular knack for solving mysteries, and strong motivations for getting involved.

Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueI say this all the time, but the best way to know what kinds of things @HallmarkPublish is looking for is to watch a few current Hallmark movies. #CountdowntoChristmas is coming right up, but we'd like winter, spring, summer, and fall romances, too! #amwriting #querying #MSWL
Reminder that Hallmark Publishing is open to unagented submissions in the month of February '19: contemporary romance and contemporary cozy mystery, 65,000 words minimum. Complete submission guidelines here: hallmarkchannel.com/hallmark-publi… #MSWL #publishing #amwriting
For adult fiction, I’d love cozy mysteries with a unique spin. Send me dark fantasy, epic fantasy…actually…just send me all the fantasy!!! I’d also like sci-fi with a science slant instead of aliens or a Star Wars remake. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 3/4
