Angsty, harsher stories--romance or otherwise--because I've got lots of pent up pandemic frustration that needs an outlet! Maybe it's time for me to explore thrillers? 🧐 #MSWL

“Unique, genre-blending romance novels. For example, I wish I had worked on The Plus One by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom-com in space, or with magic. Let’s get weird and swoony.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL

I will be looking for adult romance mostly (every category), but also science-fiction and horror! Strong voices and unusual settings are the best way to pull me in. #MSWL

I will post the link to my Query Manager form in two weeks, I can't wait to see your queries in my inbox!

So now that you have some concepts, let's talk books I have loved that I am #MSWL for writing comps/voice combs/vibeness

If you are writing a YA contemporary romance, the vibe I seem to hit best is this for #MSWL *Some of my favorite books are not yet published, but if you have read @keliswrites then she is in this group too.
