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!

I'd love to see more urban fantasy/paranormal romance that doesn't rely on traditional government bureaucracy or law enforcement structures! I'm a little worn out on magical P.I.s and supernatural government agents. #MSWL

#MSWL Anything paranormal, sci-fi, or fantasy WITH ROMANCE! (The hotter, the better.) Voice and skilled writing will always trump everything else, so if you have something I haven't asked for specifically, but the writing/voice is stellar, please send it anyway!

I am really dying to find historical fantasy or with spec fic touches. There are SO many locations outside of US/UK that I need to see in historical.

This goes for paranormal, too. Give me more cultural creatures (think the series Trese) #amagenting #mswl

#MSWL I'd also like to see a paranormal adventure romance set in a culture-rich location. Imagine if Tomb Raider was a cat shifter hunting magical relics. Or if Indiana Jones was a demon hunting the holy grail for other reasons...

#MSWL I'm continually hunting for a long-running series (different couple in each book) full of sexy-as-sin paranormal characters who make me laugh, swoon, and stay up late reading!

On my #MSWL: I like funny and dark at the same time. If you have a HOT PNR or UF with an HEA or HFN that twists a trope, send it. Bonus points if it's 75K or under. QueryManager.com/LisaGreenQueri…

#MSWL I would love a smoking hot adult PNR series akin to @genashowalter's Lords of the Underworld series or The Sins and Virtues series by Charlotte Featherstone! Think outside the box!

#MSWL I'd really love to see strong heroines in traditionally male positions of power in adult PNR. Maybe the alpha of the pack, or head of law enforcement in a paranormal agency

#MSWL Always want gritty, dark, sink-your-teeth-in PNR with the old-school feel of JR Ward or Lara Adrian, but also want to see your paranormal romcom. If you can make me laugh, cry, or sit on the edge of my seat while taking me on an escape from the ordinary, send it my way!

#MSWL I'm a sucker for the fish out of water trope, especially if that fish is fresh to a new identity (freshly turned vampire, just found out hidden paranormal genes run in the family, etc). Add humor, and I'm all-in!

#MSWL adult paranormal romance set in the locations we all love... Akin to HBO's Carnival Row in foggy London, or KMM's Fever series in culture-rich Ireland
