In YA, I'd love to see:
🌞Queer romance
🌞Thrillers with isolated settings
🌞Horror with gothic and atmospheric vibes
🌞Historical that centers on POC stories
🌞Subversive and dark fantasy

Some of my faves: BOYFRIEND MATERIAL; YOU HAD ME AT HOLA; WEATHER GIRL; THE BODYGUARD; BOOK LOVERS.

I don't tend to be the right person for hist roms, high fantasy romance, or romantic suspense where the LI is a police officer/detective.

Adult

Romance, romance, romance! I adore swoony romances, chaotic protagonists, and conversational and/or laugh-out-loud voice. I also love if there's a sprinkling of spec fic (a la THE DEAD ROMANTICS).

I'm always here for a good, bonkers romcom as well, the wackier the better.

Here it is! The #MSWL thread!

The broadest strokes are that I'm looking for Adult romance; YA romcoms, contemporary, and the odd spec fic; and MG contemporary and fantasy. Specifics below.

I love Romance, but I also love all the ways we mess up and/or complicate our lives CHASING it. Also, chasing monogamy is boring me rn. I’d love to see a QUEER BIPOC coming-of-age/women’s fiction abt a fun-loving, bighearted dyke whose quest for love leads to selfish chaos. #mswl

Gothics and dark academia!! Please!! Whether they’re speculative or not, whether they lean more into horror or into romance, I’m very flexible with these two subgenres and want to see them all.

I’m really hunting for superhero stories in both YA and adult, especially ones that interrogate the hero vs. villain dynamic and deal with the systemic roots of villainy. Romance very welcome!

A fun sporty YA that has friendships, drama, humour and heart with lots of scope for brilliant characters - like two rival cheer teams competing for a national title with a stunning tropey romance running in the background (best friends brother etc.)...

Agents! I'm in the mood for an epic, can't-live-without-you, every-moment-we're-apart-is-agony, be-still-my-beating-heart romance, ideally in a fantasy world. I want tension, I want tears, I want to ache with longing. #MSWL

Agents of Twitter, please send me your spiciest fantasy romances. I truly cannot emphasise enough that I love romance of ALL kinds, so if you have something and you're thinking 'is this too spicy to send to an SFF editor?' It is not. Please send it to me #MSWL

Pondering my current #mswl. I’d still love to see some high-concept YA romance (if queer then all the better) that addresses the climate crisis… ecological, possibly international, could be a version of our world, could be fantasy?
