I don't know whether it's the season, or just 2020 in general, but I am craving a warm and wise and magical witchy story right now, brimming with sisterhood and secrets (historical or contemporary). Bonus points if it has a compelling romance! #MSWL

I am not dipping into #Pitmad today, but I am aggressively seeking Adult projects, particularly horror and domestic suspense thrillers (WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING, THE KILL CLUB; not CIA/FBI thrillers), & romance. I am hyper focused on seeking queer BIPOC writers & characters #mswl

#MSWL = romance with a dash of awkward.

Her: I love animals
Him: I work with animals
Her: Are you a vet?
Him: No, I’m a butcher.

Today's #MSWL is a heist story. Young adult (like SIX OF CROWS) or adult (like MONEY HEIST), or even MG (for which I can't think of an example)—I want to see the mastermind behind the planning, the action, the drama, the romance that blossoms with danger around every turn!

Still looking for book proposals from published romance authors for a cute G-rated gay Hallmark romance.
*not YA/NA
*not a coming-out story
*supportive families, friends
*clear conflict: rivals to romance, second chance?
*being gay is not the conflict
