On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart

I want to acquire a YA regency romance with a diverse cast of characters. Who’s got one? Black historical romance authors are strongly encouraged to query. I’m interested in all angles of that period. #YA #mswl #amwriting

We are reopening our #submissions tomorrow (eeeek!) so I thought I’d go through what I’m looking for this year in a hopefully helpful thread. #MSWL

In fiction I’d love to see high concept love stories for both commercial and reading group/literary crossover readers. I’m keen to see historical fiction and gothic horror - think Stacey Halls, Laura Purcell and Bridget Collins.

Who’s going to write and query me an historical f/f or f/nb romance? I want the hopeful, penniless spinster to swoon at the dusty riding boots of the embittered, lonely duchesse #MSWL

(If you’ve got one, btw, you don’t have to wait for my QM to reopen. I want it 👀)

I hope to continue to see excellent YA mysteries and thrillers, Romance and Big Friendship stories (or any intersection of the two that permeates high school!), MG adventure and sleuths, and historical fiction that tackles big issues in very personal and direct ways #mswl

I am actively looking for Latinx voices.

For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.

For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL

With horror, I'm a sucker for gothic anything. I want lush settings, atmospheric writing, and spook as opposed to gore. Think MEXICAN GOTHIC. Historical or contemporary. #MSWL
