I’d love to learn more about the Latinx experience and hope to see more literary or commercial fiction submissions of heartfelt contemporary novels for adults featuring Latinx characters, Latinx family stories or thrillers, adventures, fantasy, and magical realism #mswl
#MSWL I really want fun queer romances. All across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, with smart, fully developed characters, sharp dialogue/witty banter, family/friend/career drama, and beautiful, totally explored settings.
Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantianWithin the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL
The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)
I love laughter, warmth, introverts, character-driven narratives, perseverance, being transported to different places and times, gorgeous and grounded world-building, heart, friendship, and family.
Here’s what I’m seeking this year! #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…
"Plot-driven story of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, MODERN LOVERS, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING" @carlywatters #MSWL
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzMy current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers
It appears my #MSWL list is evergreen, because I'm definitely still hunting for all these elements in my mystery/suspense/women's fiction submissions...
Sarah Walton @noegopictures@d_annouche @Donovanesque Hi Stacey, @Donovanesque In regard to setting of the novel, I know that Hallmark traditionally prefers for a character to travel from a big city to a small town for Christmas, but is it okay for the protagonist to travel from one big city to another big city?
GREAT question. Characters can go to a big city, or stay in their big city or small town. The important thing here is the emotional journey and re-connecting to the things that matter most: like community, love, friendship, family, hope, or their truest self. #hallmark #MSWL
