I’d love to acquire a Highlander-based historical romance. Send me your hot men in kilts and the heroines who keep them in line! I’d love to see a grouchy rogue. Goal would be print. Submission guidelines in my pinned tweet. #MSWL #HistoricalRomance
Just to expand on my #MSWL: for commercial fiction, I love contemporary romance & rom coms (think Sally Thorne's THE HATING GAME, Josie Silver's ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, and Nora Roberts' work) along with historical romance w/ richly drawn characters a la Lisa Kleypas's work.
“Young Adult: historical fiction, LGBTQ+ romance, a story about a boy band, mysteries and thrillers, magical realism with gorgeous prose, a novel-in-verse, experimental story structure.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
I see so many things comped to Naomi Novik that those comps have kind of lost meaning for me, but nevertheless I love romantic and literary fantasy that draws from folklore, especially if it's interrogating heavier topics, as SPINNING SILVER interrogates antisemitism. #mswl
I honestly have so many great things to read that I can't keep up buuuuuuut
I would kill for a Vicar of Dibley romance. Plus-size female vicar/preacher, incredible cast of characters, HOT HOT new neighbor in the town??? It's everything I've ever wanted #mswl #dawnfrenchmyqueen
In young adult:
-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.
- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life
-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7
-what I'm calling the "rom dram," or romantic drama, with deep emotional conflict, rather than plot-driven drama
-social thrillers and horror w. commercial pacing, but have a deeper level of weight to them about something that occupies the social consciousness today #MSWL 3/7
Alexandra Sehulster @ASehulsterI've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7
-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out
-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7
If someone writes a YA romance between two emo teens who go to a lot of concerts together, I’ll take that #mswl yesterday. It’s been over a year since I saw a live show and I want those feelings! Think 2004-2007 alt rock/emo extravaganza
