I'm on the first episode of Dash & Lily, and I NEED more YA romance novels like this. #MSWL
I'm not open to queries right now but if you have a book like this let me know. I might make an exception. 😏
How about a YA art heist or DaVinci Code type story (maybe without the religious stuff though)? Something super high stakes, quick pace, lots of museums and/or cool architecture, but also with... a f/f/ romance built in? I'd read the crap out of that. #MSWL
I'd love a super romantic, totally swept off their feet, passionate YA love story, featuring Black characters (written by a Black person, please). Straight or queer, I don't care. Just heavy on the romance. Realistic contemporary preferred but that part's not a dealbreaker. #mswl
Write For Harlequin @Write4HarlequinCommunity plays a significant role in many Harlequin romances. But how can you balance your story's focus between the leading couple and the secondary cast? Check out this post for these #HarlequinSpecialEdition authors’ tips! bit.ly/34zMbRi
I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨
Pulp Librarian @PulpLibrarianToday in pulp: a woman with great hair is fleeing a gothic house. Why?
Well this is a signal to the reader: they hold in their hands one of ‘those’ books – not a historical romance or a ghost story, but a modern gothic romance.

Excellent thread and my #mswl to a T.
My head is swirling around random thoughts today, but you know what I’d love to see in my inbox???? A sarcastic and wonderful holiday book: nonfiction—cooking book or DIY decorations and their meanings (love learning about traditions) or fiction—YA rom-com. #MSWL
Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbardWhile we're doing #AskECLA, let's talk about what stuff we're dying to see in our inbox, eh? (@LindaEpstein @GarrettAlwert) I'll start by saying ROMANCE. ALL THE YA ROMANCE. Or hints of romance in MG. Dark and angsty or light and funny, BRING IT.
ROM COMS OR CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE. Let’s make it queer, inclusive, diverse. If fans of Talia Hibbert, Helen Hoang, Alexis Daria, or Casey McQuiston would read it—I want it!
I really want some relatable women’s fiction about millennials finding their way in the world, taking the wrong paths and learning as they go. I want to see relationships tested —familial, friendships, romantic etc.

I want to rep this romance novel please! #mswl
From ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, to US, to UNDER THE UDALA TREES and THE NIGHTINGALE. Actually, novels about any kind of relationship, whether romantic, familial or platonic.
Thao Le @AgentThaoI recently finished this show on Netflix and it was amazing and I have major withdrawals now that I'm done. It's rare that I can stand to watch 70 episodes straight of something and still feel like I needed more. It also gifted me a new OTP. twitter.com/in_tess/status…
In case you're wondering if I'm still obsessed with Netflix's #TheRiseofPhoenixes, I AM. So am totally open to being queried a ms that is similar in vein with the plotting/scheming main characters and their complicated, slow burn romance. #MSWL
I’m in like full “I need escapism” mode right now (& I’m really privileged to be able to check out sometimes). Desperately need someone to send me a fluffy and lighthearted YA contemp romance. Plot can be anything, as long as it has YEARNING and TENSION🥺 #mswl
Preslaysa says pre-order A Lowcountry Bride today! @preslaysawritesIf you can only keep three romance tropes, what would they be?

Friends to lovers 💕
There’s only one bed 😜😆
FAKE ENGAGEMENT 😍🤩😍
#mswl (when I reopen to queries)
(Romcom is not a trope)
I watched The Lake House with my fave #KeanuReeves over the weekend and it made me long for a modern genre-bending time travel romance. Send me yours, please. I'm thinking anything along the lines of #TheLakeHouse and also #PalmSprings with Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti #mswl
