Happy Oct! I just updated my queryamy.com Querytracker page to accept fiction! I am looking for horror, paranormal, fantasy, historical, thriller, adventure, and a few other tidbits. Check out my page for genres and I look forward to reading your stuff! #MSWL
A sneak peek at my eventual #MSWL —I’d swoon over a Gilmore Girls inspo with a paranormal or speculative element, anything that could comp my favorite song of all time, “Never Surrender” by Cory Hart or a story set in a coastal boating town. #amquerying #WritingCommunity
#Adult #MSWL :
- LGBTQ+ romance & diverse casts
- romcoms especially!
- enemies to lovers, slow burn, villain/hero, love triangles
- psychological & cerebral horror with diversity!
- horror that stems from the real world & paranormal
- social commentary!
I love and devour everything by Simone St. James (aka crime / thrillers with a paranormal twist), so if you can comp to her even slightly, SOLD. I adore a good haunted house story with terrifying, angry ghosts. Loved MEXICAN GOTHIC by Silvia Moreno-Garcia recently. #MSWL
#PitDark is tomorrow! 🎉 I'll be seeking adult murder mysteries, paranormal, speculative, horror & thrillers w/unique hooks (& whatever catches my eye). If I❤️your pitch, query me (if you'd like) via querymanager.com/AnnieRomano, including "PitDark" in the "who referred you" field.

#MSWL: Light paranormal romance, especially paranormal romantic comedy
Gothic romance/Gothic fiction
Uplit, feel-good women’s fiction, especially with speculative elements
Dark/darkly funny women’s fiction and romantic comedy (think Love in the Time of Serial Killers)
Sub genres I’m looking for:
Contemporary, Contemporary Romance, Feminism, Film/TV, Folklore, Gothic Horror, Humor, Magical Realism, Multicultural, Paranormal, Romantic Comedy, Self-help, Social Issues, Study Abroad Stories, Time Travel, Travel
Some tropes I love: enemies to lovers, workplace romance, fake dating, whatever the opposite of small town romance is. I am also down for a supernatural element and love the current contemporary/paranormal mashup we are seeing! #MSWL
I'm also only considering memoir and sci-fi very selectively. I'm not the best fit for epic/high fantasy (think Game of Thrones) but I do like magical realism, urban fantasy and some paranormal and horror.
Fantasy romance/paranormal romance: This is another one where I’m on the lookout for two different things. 1: cozy, feel-good fantasy, the kind of romance you can sink into and know nothing bad is ever going to happen to anyone. A warm bath of a romance (is that gross?!). #mswl
Lastly, I have a wide-range of adult stories I'm seeking--many are the same from last year. BUT I am really into finding a paranormal romance and romantic suspense in 2023. My steam level varies, but the plot matters more than the sexiness. I don't rep erotical.
That brings me to Adult Horror*—I’m open as long as it includes:
1. Supernatural/Paranormal element
2. Some lighthearted content – comedy, romance, etc.
I want to be scared, but I need something fun to keep me from putting it down!
*Sci-Fi crossovers are not for me
All! The! Romance!
I’m open to almost all* Adult Romance, w/ the following sub-genres as some personal favs: Historical, Suspense, & Paranormal. That being said, I'd love to read anything and everything in between!
*Sci-Fi & Inspirational are not a fit
fran @galacticidiotsDisappointed by the lack of love stories about an angel of death who falls in love with the mortal they’re supposed to collect and keeps saving them from certain death despite the fact that the universe seems intent on killing them
I grew up in the paranormal romance era, this is def a YA #mswl for me!
I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I wanna, I wanna steaming hot, can't put down PNR/UF with witches that's no longer than 75,000 words. Come on, people, rescue me from queriers who send me what I clearly state I DON'T take. #MSWL
