Maybe I've been watching too much hallmark, but I am hungry for the anti-"career gal goes back home to a small town find herself" romance. Please send me your romance set in big cities, with our big charm, bigger antics and swoony (but yes sometimes grimy) settings! #mswl
#MSWL: I want FULL LENGTH curvy girl, body-positive romance. I’m sick of either not finding them or finding they’re only novellas. I want the steam, the heat, the heart-racing…all of it! I’m still closed to queries, but if you have one and are querying, DM me for a special link.
LB Black @authorlbblackI am *desperate* for paranormal romance books where the male lead isn't a domineering alpha. No shade if that's your cup of tea -- I'm just looking for my soft monsters. My cottagecore vampires. My 'looks like a cinnamon roll, but could actually kill you' vibes.
Oooohhhh!!!! #MSWL as soon as I reopen for queries!!!
Today's #MSWL pulls from literary agent Emily Forney's website: "In YA, [stories that] are highly romantic, glamorized, [with] rich world building that feels so satisfyingly developed." @EmilyKaitlinnn
Here's an #MSWL for you (a thread)
I want a super self indulgent vampire romance. Take me back to the early 2000s. Very Queen of the Damned/Underworld movie vibes. Either prose of graphic novel. I want action and mystery and maybe conspiracy too.
Nic Caws @NicolaCawsSo many great Qs in the @Write4Harlequin webinar today but not sure I said what I want to see *more* of… so here’s my current #MSWL
Attention-grabbing category romances for the Harlequin Presents, Medical, Historical and Romance lines!
bog bodies, the age of sail, westerns (centering BIPOC and/or queer characters only please), stories about sports teams (that are maybe haunted??), gothic romances, medieval pilgrimages and any combination thereof!
Still looking for romance, women's fiction, and cozy mystery BOOK proposals SET AT THE BEACH. If you've published in the genre, you don't need an agent. You just need a killer 3 - 5 pp double-spaced synopsis. DM me for email.

For #YA, I'd love to see more psychological #thrillers, #mysteries, #light atmospheric horror. Give me a YA Girl, Interrupted, please. I'd also love to see more #BIPOC and #queer stories that lead with joy here - #romance, #romcoms.
romances with any combination of neurodivergence or sexuality are also high on my wishlist. show me characters who struggle in their identities and mental wellbeing who find each other in the chaos of themselves.
tasneem motala ♡ @seraphecdajust got off a call with a lovely editor and now need to know: do y'all got any romance novels? please query me with your bipoc romances~!
so to jump off of this tweet, here's a thread of a few things I love seeing in YA romance~! #MSWL
Rebecca Rodd @rebroddreadsBut right now I would especially love to see:
- anything set on an HBCU campus
- all of the magical realism
- mythological retellings
- romance/love stories (deep and profound and HARD or light and feel good)
- all the millennial joy and adulting hardships
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
