Just updated my #MSWL -
"Romance! All the romance novels! Queer, BIPOC, contemporary, paranormal, historical, adult and young adult, series and stand alone. Is it romance? Bring it on!"
more details here:
An interviewer asked me if a writer were to write something directly for me, what would it be. The first thing that came to mind was a MG or YA queer cozy paranormal mystery. #mswl
My Christmas wish? A query for the first book in a long hot-as-hell, sexy-as-sin paranormal romance series with complex characters, multiple species, plenty of tension, and laughable moments. #MSWL
Ho Ho Ho Happy Holidays! My gift to all the paranormal, UF, fantasy and sci-fi romance writers out there is that I'm opening back up to queries for the New Year! <3 #MSWL
Lisa Green Editor @LisaGreenEdito2@jem_zero I do love horror. It's tough to do a horror romance, but I'd definitely be into seeing one.
Yes I'm retweeting my own tweet because I decided to add it to my #MSWL as long as there are fantasy or paranormal elements.
LB Black @authorlbblackI am *desperate* for paranormal romance books where the male lead isn't a domineering alpha. No shade if that's your cup of tea -- I'm just looking for my soft monsters. My cottagecore vampires. My 'looks like a cinnamon roll, but could actually kill you' vibes.
Oooohhhh!!!! #MSWL as soon as I reopen for queries!!!
I also love paranormal elements like monsters and ghosts. And anything witchy! I love characters fighting their own "inner demons” too! I'm selectively open to elements like vampires.
Any atmospheric setting--e.g. an eerie seaside town might be cool!
