#MSWL Would love a Love Inspired or category length romantic suspense novel with an "undercover" hook. Could be heroine is under cover or the hero, but I'd love to read that. Would like an unusual setting too. Maybe an island near Portland or Seattle, or Caribbean, cruise ship?

@HerringAli Now spite is a romance sub-genre I can get behind

Couldn't have said it better. So I'll retweet my #MSWL. Give me a romance where they are getting married just to spite EVERYONE (and then of course fall in love).

i want jewish period pieces where we're not being murdered or expelled. just, like, jews in beautiful gowns going to balls. stick us in bridgerton for all i care! just give me something, anything, to work with

This is a big #mswl for me. I REALLY want to read a Young Adult Jewish Bridgerton-type romance (I'd write it myself, if I thought I could! I've tried...). If you have something like that, DM me and I'll tell you how to submit it (because I'm currently closed to queries).

Any Romance that is set in Italy, France, Greece, Croatia or Scotland. Can there be food involved and a ramshackle whiskey distillery, old vineyard or run-down brewery? #MSWL

For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch

*YA magical realism with witches (think of The Secret Circle)
*YA/NA sweet romance with a feel of the Love, Rosie movie
*NA cozy mystery

U.S. settings OR other settings with at least one American main character. Open to main characters over 40. Would love to see a secondary romance between seniors. Always looking for high concept! tinyurl.com/yn8y9eme

We’re open to light and funny stuff but also more serious, poignant, and heartfelt themes (also good movie material). With romance I’m looking for a good conflict on both sides. #MSWL #HallmarkPublishing

We’ll be looking for G-rated romance and women’s fiction. I talk about all our book acquisitions with the movie producers and I have a few going into development right now. You get extra $$ on top of the advance for a movie of course. #HallmarkPublishing #MSWL
