#MSWL Inspy/Christian thriller like Cara Putnam’s HIDDEN JUSTICE series except with a religious yet ultra strong, savvy & compassionate lead female detective. This MSWL inspired by Dateline Secrets Uncovered Good & Evil episode’s real-life Detectice Trapp. She’s the lead I want.
If you've resolved to write a book in the new year, I'd love to see it. Here's what I'm looking for:
Inspirational romantic suspense 55K words. High danger and drama. Sweet and satisfying romance. Low sensuality. Intriguing hooks and secrets.

Thrill ride. Characters face danger throughout.
Juicy plot and conflict
Characters of faith.
No sex, cursing, drinking.
Kerstin WereWolf @Kerstin_WolfI also agree that there should be a more developed New Adult category. It’s pretty difficult to find books for where I’m at in my life now and that was equally true for when I was in college. 4/5
When I open to queries, I’d love to see some more of what I discussed in this thread: lower YA novels, light-hearted and uplifting YA fantasies, and fun NA novels. 5/5 #MSWL
I'd love to see a duo of switched at birth stories with the characters finding out as adults. And the discovery leading to them each finding love matches. Either inspirational romantic suspense or contemporary romance. #mswl
I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL
Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmellI'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
I wholeheartedly DITTO this #MSWL. Juicy inspy contemporary romance and all the suspense.
Above all: bring me new adult fantasy that redefines what readers associate with fantasy, staying away from the typical fantasy creatures/structures like Tolkien-inspired or vamp/shifter/fae. Give me ever-escalating stakes, stunning fantasy visuals, and new points of view. #MSWL
still on NA:
I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f
okay moving on to NA now:
*fun RS with witty, flirty banter
*adventure-y RS that goes to interesting places
*a light paranormal or sci-fi element is ok but emphasis on "light"
*must be firmly NA - characters still in training or just finished
#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

I'm looking for juicy inspirational romantic suspense books that will fit Love Inspired Suspense. Clean reads, lots of danger and suspense, satisfying romance, not preachy. Think characters on the run from danger who fall in love while fighting to stay alive.
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
