I am not dipping into #Pitmad today, but I am aggressively seeking Adult projects, particularly horror and domestic suspense thrillers (WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING, THE KILL CLUB; not CIA/FBI thrillers), & romance. I am hyper focused on seeking queer BIPOC writers & characters #mswl

Still looking for book proposals from published romance authors for a cute G-rated gay Hallmark romance.
*not YA/NA
*not a coming-out story
*supportive families, friends
*clear conflict: rivals to romance, second chance?
*being gay is not the conflict

I am VERY INTO the upcoming Kristen Stewart LGBTQIA+ Christmas movie and want to just drown myself in it. But I also want to read about bff Dan Levy finding love too; someone please give me a Dan Levy romcom. #MSWL

I feel like I haven't stated this outright so if you have a polyamorous relationship in YA or YA with crossover potential, I'd LOVE to see it.

The more queer it is, the better.

How about a YA art heist or DaVinci Code type story (maybe without the religious stuff though)? Something super high stakes, quick pace, lots of museums and/or cool architecture, but also with... a f/f/ romance built in? I'd read the crap out of that. #MSWL
